I have to add that around here that would be a very reasonable price..Anything with a 3-point and a PTO automatically adds $1000 to the price and Im not joking at all.
The PTO is a nice feature, but it's just the shaft that the gear reduction unit hooks to... I think it runs at engine speed if I understand correctly.
If he was at about half the price I would be interested, but I'm working a deal on a couple Bolens H11XLS right now... one runs, with manual lift, other missing engine, but has hydraulic lift... Price is right... gonna go see them Friday.
My GTs are like rabbits--even when I thin 'em out a little, they seem to keep multiplying again....
