What the heck, I am not that knowledgeable, but is this right?

http://cincinnati.cr...4487296438.html


I have a Antique Struck Corporation Garden Tractor with a snow plow, I am trying to find the manual for it but it was a kit you would buy and build your own tractor deal from sears, I have used it for years for plowing my drive way. It was bought it 77 or 78, runs great and plow works great, very cool looking and pretty big actually, Good shape. $650

    Looks to be sears rear end turned over, possible a simplicity hood.   Just a guess, other than that it looks neat and is big!!!!!!

Engine, front frame section and rear looks sears.

I don't know Struck so I have no idea. Close to me, would be a cool project for the money.

Struck did have a tractor for awhile long ago. Not so sure was kit.  the struck forum on yahoo had pictures of all the stuff they made. One guy has one of everything!  This one does seem some diff, maybe parts were changed and updated in it's life?  I think for $$ you would be good to get it. These are fairly rare.

Pretty big GT. Looks like it's in solid condition. The engine looks small for the tractor. I wonder what HP it is?

Not a sears rear end, looks peerless to me.
You can tell it by how the shifter mounts, 3 bolts instead of 4

I would buy it if it was closer for two reasons.

1) It's rare

2) Big tractor for the money

I think it's a modified Sears ST/16.

 

Is the yellow struck or sears?  The ST/16 was yellow.

In the ebay ad, the engine shows "OH160" which matches the ST/16 as well.

Also, the transmission looks like a sears as well.

 

 

Regardless, it looks like a really well done build.

It's not an st frame, but motor looks like from an st16, or a factory replacement... It's that harvest gold looking color sears used.. It's cool either way!

I don't get where you guys are getting SEARS anything from pictures I saw.  Might be same engine, but Sears isn't only way to get one of those. That whole think looks like heavy metal, dash included. Could all be it's OWN parts. Trans axles are in everything, not getting that being Sears either. I bet that fella from the Struck forum bought it, think he lives over that way. Just guessing.

Just went to Struck forum and fella named "Tractor Jeff" had a picture on there with Struck tractor behind his crawler. LIke always, I don't know how to save the pix or link to transfer, sorry.. Looks about like this one, diff wheels for sure on back, hood didn't have scoop like this one has, but rest pretty much the same.  I'm sure if I looked around more, could find others.
