Well, about a week ago, I called a guy that had this tractor and I asked him if he would trade. Well, I told him I had a snapper LT12 and he took the trade. So today me and my dad went and dropped off the snapper and picked up the Custom. The deck is horrible cracked. So thats useless. It came with a newer agri-fab sweeper, but it will be a LONG time before I get to use it lol. It has had a replacement engine installed.
Anyway
with out farther rambling. Here she is

The hood strut thats in front of the engine has been removed. This thing runs really well to. Its fast as well. Tranny is in good shape.

A Custom 6 was my first tractor and that too had an upgrade engine , think it as a 8hp. My deck was cast alu. twin blade . We used it to pull out about 40 4' mulberry trees on our lot . Wish I took pictures of it.

Its a great tractor, its now my snow tug, the suburban needs a few things and will prolly be inactive for a good long while, at least tell it gets warmer. I threw the wheels fro the suburban on the custom but I havent been able to test it yet. I have a video to
YouTube - The new Machine
Since the video I have dialed in the throttle so it doesn't run so fast.

well, I am gonna build a new deck. using some real steel and the rest of the parts needed. The new deck will use the stock mounts so I dont even need to make a new lift system. It will be set up like the suburbans deck. A box with the bottom cut out.DSCI0089.jpg
