Sale price for the whole package is $1850. First off is that too much, way out of line, or maybe not a bad deal. Second how hard will it be to get parts to repair the mower.
Third my proposed use for this is maintenance of a 3 acre yard with a large garden. We will have snow and could have as much as 300 feet of driveway to clear. Most snows will be less than 10 inches some could be larger. From what he describes it should work for that.
Sperry Rand New Holland S-14 Garden Tractor. It has a 14hp Kolar engine that starts & runs great. It's a very powerfull high torque motor. It has a fully hydrostatic drive as well as hydraulic front, mid & rear lifts. It also has front, mid & rear PTO hookups. Always starts & always works when you need it. In the past 30+ years I've not seen a snow in central Nebraska these tractors couldn't handle. It comes with a 48" Ariens (New Holland) tiller, 48" New Holland snowblower & 48" heavy duty New Holland front blade. I also have a 48" New Holland mower deck, I'll throw in with it. The mower needs new parts to work I think spindles & blades. It comes with 2 wheel weights & tire chains.
Thanks in advance for your advice.
