Nice find Backwoods. It is a '70's Roper built tractor. http://vintagesearsg...7_tractors.html

Thanks Kenny i uploaded them from my phone

Figured that. When I went to edit, they turned out right side up. Not a big deal to fix for the other folks to see!

Do you have a model number? That would tell us a little. Also, when you get a chance to get some direct sunlight on it, pics might help too.

I would guess that since it has a manual trans, it has an electric lift but just a guess. Looks like a worker to me Greg, did he happen to change out the ignition switch? If so, he may have used the wrong switch and burnt up the electronic ignition module.

That was Sears custom line, kind of a base garden tractor. Not horrible, but not built as heavy has the suburban line.

 

 

The SSI could've went out, they usually just die

 

The used manual lifts, the deck lift was mounted to the deck. They did have a rear 3pt, it was manual too.
