I know, I know, I swore off any thing but green.  I could not help it.  It was too good of a deal to pass up.  Wheel Horse Raider 14 garden tractor and 40 inch mower deck, runs fine, with a snow blade and tiller.   Tiller is currently hooked up and works good too...

Good looking rig. I would turn the exhaust elbow down and get that muffler in front of the engine and exiting out the other side. I really enjoy the pulling power of my Raiders !!

My first thought was, you've purchased a Red John like this one redjohn.JPG

 

But no prob, James Henry - everything can be sold immediatly...

 

Joking aside, great find, congrats!

Thanks...that is a good idea.  I thought it looked kinda strange sticking out like that...

Horse are easier to train than Deere, you won't even want to look at the green ones after time on the Horse! Much easier to steer, more room when sitting in seat, easier to reach the things to work on.

The red one got power washed, fuel lines replaced, carb. linkage fixed,  and the muffler re-aligned.  I used the 50/50 tranny fluid-acetone mixture to break loose the muffler clamps nuts and muffler tube pieces...worked great...took awhile to burn off the tranny fluid tho....  The old girl runs fine, but it will need a new belt for the tiller soon.  I have the mower deck for it too, and a snow blade...
