I drug this tiny Horse home a few days ago. I pulled the tin on the engine,cleaned the coil and flywheel and took it for a ride. It runs and drives good. I didn't particularly want it but I got in a package deal and took it because I had a feeling it might have went to scrap soon. The original 8 horse Tecky is long gone,replaced with a 11 hp Briggs. If I had a deck for it,this A80 Ranger would make a great trim mower. Did I mention this is a tiny Horse ? :smilewink:

That is a nice machine. Even being a lawn tractor it's still obviously built better than most others. You had me scratching my head on that wheelbase. It does look longer than normal. But I looked at the 75 brochure and it's spot on. Maybe the missing seat gives that illusion. :thumbs:

Hey guys. Doing some research. Found this place. Saw some names I knew and signed up. Looks like another good re source to me.

I think the pictures give the illusion of a long wheelbase. This thing looks tiny all around in person. Welcome aboard Glen,it's good to see you over here.
