But he won't sell. I was walking around a friend's barn and saw this. He bought a zero turn and its been sitting for 5 years. He said I could have first dips if he gets rid of it.

Says right on the hood it's a 582. It has a stick shift so I would assume the 582 is correct. It has a 16hp opposed Briggs in it which is not all that desireable. It is in the 1981 to 1985 vintage depending on the serial #.

They were speaking of the model number of the John Deere in the background.

You should have asked him if you could write your name on the hood & cover it up.  :D  That would be a hard one to walk away from.

I would just faithfully go over every weekend. Wash and wax it, tune up the engine, etc. Eventually, he'll wear down.

I always liked the opposed Briggs.  They always are smooth if they are right.
