I ran across this today. I talked with the owner and he said he would let it go for $200.00 and Include the Snow Blower smiley-confused013.gif Not sure what I could do with that. He did say it hasn't been started in several years. Posting this to see what you think before I take up more space in the shop. Should I jump on this or pass. It looks complete.

Looks like it's time to work on something different for a change! You can use the snowblower to send the cactus to the nieghbor's yard!

That looks a lot like my sears SS/16 that I've had for about two years and I'm very pleased with it.  It's a real workhorse.  Looks like the Roper has an onan engine and they are great engines but expensive for parts.  My sears had a 16hp Onan engine in it that needed major rebuilding and parts were sky high.   I opted to repower with a new 18hp Honda that was no more expensive and mabe even a little cheaper than an onan rebuild would have been.  Don't think you'll go wrong to get it for $200 including the snow blower.

I would drag it home ! I wonder if that is the hard to find "N52" big block Onan that all the Onan guys are always looking for ?

Well, I sold the boxing trainer to a co-worker and broke it down so I would have room for the Roper, I'll know for sure this Saturday. Want to make sure I have room for it.

Looks like a solid tractor. It's basically the same as a Sears 19.9

I have a 19.9 sears and its a smooth running, nice mowing unit.
The blower will be a nice conversation piece,at shows... Maybe you could trade it for some other implement(s)?

If you get a freak snow storm this winter you will be the only one in town to be able to get out! Good Luck, Rick

Yep, those are beasts of tractors. That has the "big block" Onan, it also should have an aluminum upper half of nose so they rarely break unlike the Sears fiberglass version. Looks like it might have a 48" deck too and wide front rims.

Just talked with the owner and scheduled a Saturday pickup. I need to rent a U-Haul trailer in town for this, mine is too small :(

Larry, it will weight close to BMP's weight with that Onan on there!

Yea, I kinda figured that, plus I don't want to remove the deck for the haul and get the snow blower. I reserved a 5' X 8' utility trailer with a ramp. I am brining a full air tank, come-along and $300.00 Incase he has something else of interest.

I will have it here tomorrow morning, including the snow blower. I need to think up a name for it as it looks like it will be here for a while.

Depending on whether it smokes or not, may I suggest the Doper?
