I aquired this Rugg Rugged rider last summer. It has the Clinton VS1100 engine, and is 100% complete and original. I have not tried to start it, as it has been in storage for over a year now. Plan on getting going on it this summer, hopefully. i have included some pics for you all to view.

That's a neat little LT for sure! And talk about a mouse nest...more like a "mouse hotel"! She has decent original paint for it's age, so as-is isn't bad!
Thanks for the pics!

That's a great little rider, and HOLY MOUSE NEST BATMAN!
Looks like that Kohler Caseguy had or the Briggs in my Allis.

Thanks for sharing the pictures. That's a unique little mower and, yes, quite a mouse nest! I recognize that oil fill cap. I have an old Clinton horizontal (somewhere). The cap on the dipstick looks pretty much the same.

That is a very Cool Machine....I've never seen one before. Love that Steel Pan Seat....Must have a super tight steering radius, Definitely a worthwhile restoration project. Best of luck with it.

Definitely a cool little lawn tractor. I can't get over the size of that nest in it. Overall the tractor looks to be in good shape, especially the original paint.

Are these worth anything? I know where 2 are that should be cheap. Maybe $50 each

Unknown. Other than a guy over in Wisconsin that got in touch with me that has a couple, mine is the only one I've ever seen. Or heard of, for that matter. I got mine for a heck of a good deal. Free! So the price is right. Have no clue as to worth other than whatever someone wants to pay for it.

I think they are worth something, they are different and you hardly ever see them. They are pretty cool looking lawn tractors.
