Found it two weeks ago locally for sale. The price was 450.00 and the seller didn't want to drop the price. I'm working on my Cub Cadet loader project and really didn't need the Sears to distract me...Well you know how that goes, ha! I called the guy with the Sears this morning and he still had it, so I headed over to get a closer look. It is actually in better shape than I thought! I figured it would smoke, rattle and knock when he finally got it started...nope, ran smooth and quiet and burned no oil! It runs smooth on partial choke only, so I'll be going over the fuel system for starters. I asked him what his bottom dollar was on the tractor and he said " how bout' 225.00 with the deck"? Sold, I said.
The previous owner did a quick spray job on it, so I'm planning on fresh paint and decals, tune up and fluid changes. It's missing the side panel on the left side, just behind the engine and a bolt here and there. All of the lights and electrical system work, though. Here's a few pics.
