I just picked this up yesterday, and wouldn't ya know it friggin snowed here!!! That sux, but soon as I got it off the trailer I got to plow my drive, and the neighbor's drive too!! That's COOL. Let me first say, and yep some have heard it before, "this thing is a beast". She definitely has battle wounds all over, and I probably will replace the rear seat pan as it's in real bad shape, but it's all there, and works good too (except one tail light for obvious reasons). I got it with the plow, and deck, but the deck will need some patches which is easy nuff. Overall I am very happy with it so far, and I will make this my everyday yard machine. Oh yea, check out the hydro lift handle extension. It works really good, i don't know what it's from, but the function is excellent.

 

A little History on her from the original owner I got her from said he bought her new, but wouldn't ya know, he either told me the year, and I simply didn't hear him, or he didn't tell me at all (nor did I ask) :wallbanging: . (I think it's an 83, but not positive?) He said he never had any major problems with it, and used it all the time plowing, and for pulling his log trailer. He said he "had enough of Wisconsin", and was moving to FL. He also said back in the 80's he salvaged the signal light's off a Jap bike for the rear end, and added a flasher to them. Just in case anyone here is wondering, Ummm yea, those will be coming off.  LOL

Thank you! I think I did well for 400 bucks.

I do too except the reverse pedal has the proverbial sit's too low problem. I think I might weld a plate to the pedal to over come that, no biggie!!!

I have one of those tractors, with blower, 50" deck, tiller and a cab. I put one of those extensions on my too for the lift. works great.  Engine is coming out for a rebuild of sorts. Fill with gas and oil every time I use it. Noel

Those are a nice tractor about the size and weight of a JD318. It's on my list of "like to have" tractors.

She's good and heavy. I was screwing around in the yard after clearing the driveway, and ALMOST got her stuck! She's a tank. LOL

Nice tractor. I like that extension on the lift handle. I added extensions to both of my handles. But I can't seem to find the pics.

I had a 14hp beater for small time and it drove real nice and smooth.  Hydro pedal is only way to be really happy. One more thing, I kinda like the lights in back. Not sure I would have flash and might wish to be red, but I like the looks and they seem sturdy.

Thank you, and I agree with the hydro thoughts.
The lights actualy look good in the pictures, in person, they are all of NOT Oem, AND they look goofy. Now granted we have all been there in the cash situation being to weak to buy new, and I have been there too, BUT, I'd like to keep one of the last american made anything all american.
