Another one couldn't say no too, went to pick up a parts JD 31 tiller and while talking to the fella he mentioned a sears hydro tractor he wanted to sell. At this point Im telling myself I don't need to buy another tractor but after looking it over I wanted it if the price was right.....when I asked the price he hesitated for a second..I expected to walk away because of the long pause but when he said 150.00 in my head I yelled sold. We shook hands and here it is, I have the original engine just needs rebuilt.

Nice tractor ,, same colour sears tractor my neighbour bought new in  the '70s and still clears snow with.  Would that tractor of yours have had the chrome front hubcaps originally? I want some....

Nice hydro. It's one of my "someday" tractors.
I think you did very well on it.
They are fun to drive aren't they?

Actually this is the first one I've seen in person. Another reason I couldn't say no.
