I picked up 2 Craftsman tractors in the last couple weeks.
I did intend on using the gt18 for plowing but it's got problems that I wasn't aware of.Cracked oil pan,steering partly stripped and well I needed to put the tires that was on it Onto my Sears Custom 10.I plan on getting rid of it soon.The plow is for an AYP body craftsman lawn mower.But it will fit the Other tractor I just got.
2003? Craftsman YS4500 22hp briggs,hydro on the fender and a 42" deck that needed some loving.
Paid to much for the GT18 BUT I basically stole the YS4500.Paid $110 and a decent push mower for it,PO wanted $150.
It needed a spindle and pulley on the shute side.He hit a small stump and it stripped out the top of the old spindle.He had allready made his mind up that he was going to buy a new Green colored tractor and just wanted this 1 gone.
I got the YS4500 fixed other than it needing a lick of paint on the deck and the Shute replaced.I ordered a new shute,still waiting on it.I need to adjust the valves on it yet.you can hear them rattle a bit on the left side.I may pull the pushrods and see if they're starting to bend or if it just needed adjusting.
Only has 271.8 hours on the ticker.There was 268 hours on it when I picked it up so the ticker is working the way it should.It was really dirty when I got it but it cleaned up pretty good.
Here's some pics of me booty Yaarrrrrrrr!!!
