Got a few Brochures off epay. One came today, supposed to be a 77 year. I like the H16XL, the QT 16 and in back the heavy HT20.
Doesn't say what brand engines. Is the HT 20 the 19.9 Kohler K19? The smaller 17hp never had good rep, but maybe fixed by this time? Qt shows a twin, Not sure if Kohler, Briggs or Onan? The H16 must be a single. Zat Tec? I would like to stay away from Tecs if possible.
Is an HT20 or maybe the 23 too, not shown here, a hard to find tractor and lots of money? Think that looks like one to hunt for.
What is it with QT being "quiet"? All the brands around this time seemed to make quiet models. Fords, Deeres, MTD's all went that way. Must have run out of "tricks" to get homeowners to want a GT and this was sales item to draw customers? I hate all that fiberglass inside hood and insulations that by time I get them is half faling out or is gone completely. Makes quite a mess.
