Maybe someone close can buy it so I can drive by and stare longingly out the window of my truck at it.
1981 Sears Craftsman FF/24 50" cut w/ hyd. 3pt. hitch - $900 (Carthage) (Nashville Area TN)
Regretfully having to part with the beast. $900/obo. Ready to work. Needs nothing to mow or work, but being a tinkerer I could tell you everything that I would improve if I had the time.
But first, basic info.
-1981 Sears Craftsman FF/24
-983cc 24HP 2 cyl. gas engine by Onan
-Hydrostatic Drive, Hydraulic mower & 3 point hitch
-50" inch cut, 3 blade mid mount
-CAT 0&1 3 point hitch. Originally a factory CAT 0, but converted to fit CAT 1 ATTACHMENTS.
-THIS IS A BIG MOWER. It weighs a HALF TON(1000lbs) without me on it.
It has 26x12x12 rear tires that are flipped for added stability, bringing the stance to 4ft. 4inches, and is well over 6ft. long.
Seriously guys, this is a HUGE mower. Its well built(ROPER) and ready to roll.
What I did to it recently...
New paint, belt, blades, oil, oil filter, head light bulbs, rear tires, & ignition
What it needs to run/operate...
I use it to grade my driveway with a rear blade, mow my lawn, haul firewood, and pull the neighbors S-10 out of the ditch when he had to much too drink.
What could be improved...
-There are two little holes rusted on the mower part. A small tack weld or plate would fix it.
-The hood was damaged from prior owner. It opens and closes fine, just a cosmetic issue.
-Needs grill cover. I was planning on custom making one, but you know...life happens.
-Maybe new seat? Or cover? Its not bad, but not new either.
-Oil dipstick tube that inserts into engine needs a brace. It sits fine as is and doesn't leak oil, but is something I would want to fix eventually.
I'm sure there are more small nit picky things, but can't think of them currently.
Starts first time, every time. Mows great, doesn't burn oil, or leak hydraulic fluid.
