OK... Go ahead and laugh, considering my "Talk Me off the Cliff" post...
Brought the 1977 Sears Suburban GT 18/6 home today. Needs a good cleaning, but overall in pretty nice condition. Hour meter works and shows about 400 hours.
Should definitely run, but it does have a few issues to resolve before it's fully functional again. I know nothing about Onans, so this will certainly be a big challenge for me.
Got quite a few interesting pieces with this tractor (extra parts, original receipts, manuals, etc.), but the one thing that really stands out is the front blade. From what I was told, the PO used it once to clear his driveway, but it left marks on the pavement. So he removed it and never used it again. Also, the replacement deck was purchased in 1995 and is next to new!
And for all of those that are questioning my desire to downsize my herd... NO... I will not be keeping this one! -lol I'm looking forward to learning more about the Sears Suburbans and will tinker around with this one. Ultimately, I just don't have the space for it... There are a couple of nice Cub Cadets spending the night under a tarp this evening to make sure Suburbasaurus stays warm and dry.
Super cool tractor! Can't wait to get it running again!!!
