Found a priceless gem on the Erie, PA Craigslist.

 

Seller calls it a 1050, but describes a 1256.

 

Part of the descriptions says:

 

 

...  THE UNIT RUNS GOOD AND STARTS UP FINE. I INSTALLED A MUFFLER ON IT AS IT DID NOT COME WITH ONE WHEN I PURCHASED
IT. THE TRACTOR IS TOO LOUD FOR WHERE I LIVE. ...

 

 

He posted a lot of pics, one of them being of the 'muffler'

Yeah, I guess it just might be "too loud" for where he lives.  :bigrofl:  :bigrofl:  :bigrofl:

Wow, they spent more on pipe fittings than they did the actual muffler...

Hotdog!!! What's that muffler for? Maybe a 4 or 5 HP motor tops. Even then it would be loud!
