Well, been on the forum for a while but haven't had a Sears tractor in a long time - Had a crusty old Craftsman (2000? - briggs 18 hp vertical shaft twin) many years ago.
Helping a buddy clean out his barn and this was stuck in a back corner. It followed me home....
"As far as he knows it runs", well it DID last time he used it - about 5 years ago! Front tires are done, but back ones are still good and hold air. I'm pretty sure its been repainted , but no rust visible aside from the deck. Onan twin with manual 3 speed/reverse transaxle and high low range. Has a nifty manual 3 point lift on it as well.
It definitely needs some love and attention, but looks savable.
Here are a few pictures.
And here is the model number and engine number
No decals or labels left on the thing- can somebody tell me what model it is?
Several other projects qued up already, so this one is gonna have to wait a little while before I get into it good, but will post more when I do. Thanks in advance for the help!
