Congratulations. Check our manuals section for the tractor and the engine manuals. One thing I usually do is let the machine sit in a level place for a couple days and then loosen the transaxle drain plug to let any water out. If the engine seems okay change the oil before you try to start it. Good Luck, Rick

Congrats on the free tractor. 6 years isn't too long if it was under cover. Give it a good once over before trying to run it. The carb probably needs cleaning etc.
