Well if it comes with the mower deck,then ya well worth the price,$350.00-$500.00 motor in it alone,you can pick up a used trans for under $200.00,has new pto electric clutch,if it was closer to me,would already be on the trailer

Good to know blackjack. I'm not looking to buy, but I was curious on the forum's opinion on it. I'm new to the tractor game but already find myself lusting after the Fords, Bolens, and Oliver tractors :D

Only problem is most  people looking to buy tractors are "users" of these tractors and do not/will not pay a "Parted out price" for the machines.

Not trying to bash anyone one way or the other but thats just the way the market is, heck I wouldnt have anything in my collection if everyone valued their stuff in "parted price" format.......

Not sure I know what you mean,I'm thinking if the person buys a trans he's still in the tractor right to be useing it,those are nice mowing machines,its funny how some of these guys think everything is over priced except for what they own,my point is the price on the tractor is a good price,I was just trying to show how good of a deal it is,I think if this tractor has a mower deck with it it's a very good deal for someone looking for a mower,maybe I'm just reading this wrong

You did say the motor was worth 350-500 alone right?

Not many people are going to pay that much for a non functioning machine, especially when there are so many of them around.

Yep, that motor will sell all day long for that,wish I had a bunch laying around,that KT-17 is hard to find,probably buy that tractor for $400.00,IMO still a very good deal,not that hard to fix that problem,if someone wanted a good cutting tractor and didn't have a lot of money to spend,heck of a deal,JUST REMEMBER I said a deck would have to be included with the sell
