Hello everyone. Don't let my pride and joy Bolens 1053 fool you. It has another worker on my grounds known as a Sears ST-10. Mne is the 502.25910 mentioned below.
"In 1976, Sears began to sell what they labeled a garden tractor, which was produced by the Murray Company. They were called ST/8 and ST/10 in 1977, model numbers 502.25900 and 502.25910. These machines were not made by the Roper Company".
This little machine has some 'cajones' for a 10hp B&S powered machine. It cuts well. It pulls logs and a 5' x 8' trailler with a ton of weight on it. The only drawback with this machine is PARTS and attachments. I did find a 3-pt. hitch for it. And I was able to find a spare cutting deck for it, too. That was a shocker.
Anywho ... here's some pics.
