Nice tractor, great condition.   It's a surprise to me..I.didn't know they made a 10 hp. Suburban. All I've seen are 12hp.    The color suggests it is a '67-'68.  Orange and white were points motors if I remember right...not the SSi ignition.

It looks great! If it runs as good as it looks and the price is right, I would buy it. Especially if it was a points engine that runs.

 

Up here people would want a lot for it (IMO) If it is as good as it looks I would be willing to spend $300

 

Good luck!

You have $100.00 just in the Ags and that's being conservative.

 

Well worth $300.00 in my book.

That would be a 67 SS10

He wants 600 for it.  I haven't seen it yet.  He said it won't idle without half choke, but runs perfect at full throttle.

Sounds like a typical Tecumseh carb to me.

 

It is a points engine, he confirmed that to me through text messages

 

He also has the belt guard.

 

Anyway to put a better seat on it?  That thing looks uncomfortable..

 

How do these cut?  Looking for a good finish cut.  I am a cub cadet guy, no experience with the Suburban

Nice tractor, looks good. Must of had a very hilly yard or had a snow thrower at one time, because of the ag tires and chains. Noel

They cut decent enough, not sure how it would stack against a Cub.
Verify center axel bolt pivot slop. Known issue, fixable.
Look for thin spots in that deck (looks like a quickie paint job... Why?)
Listen for bad bearings in the deck.
The seats are a lot more comfy than you would think, but yeah... Lots of aftermarket ones will work.

IMHO, 600 is way high. If it was a perfect runner, with no issues, and needed nothing, maybe 350-400. The four being a points engine vs a CDI.
This isn't a Wheel Horse, JD, or an O.. It's a sears, and they made a BUNCH of them.

Thanks mh81 great advice

Might not be worth an hour drive if he isn't going to down on price. I could put that 600 into fixing up the extra cub 128 I have sitting.

Nice tractor. 67 Suburban 10. No such thing as a SS10. $350-$400. Running issue could be a simple as the points gap. My SS12 runs funny when the points are not set right.

I would guess you can thank old ethanol gas for plugging up the carb making it need some choke to run. My two cents. I like my Sears better than JD by far,as good my Wheel Horses (and I'm a Horse nut),and better than Cub. IMHO value is just as high as any of the above because they are well built good running,driving tractors with so many attachments readily available and BECAUSE there is so many of them out there. It makes parts plentiful to keep your tractor going.

An early 67 HH100 can have points, while late 67's can have solid state ignition.  My 67 Massey MF12 has points, and late 67 MF12's had solid state.

Nice tractor, definitely a 67 if it's a10hp, not 600 nice though. 400 tops to me.

Carb is probalby plugged with junk, needs a good cleaning. Notorious for play in choke and butterfly rod bushings also.

I cut with mine, 42" deck. Not impressed with cut, kind of dismal IMO. If you want a super cut from a GT, buy a SImplicity or AC, none match in my book.

 

 

Daniel you are correct somewhat, Sears started converting to SSI in late 67, but mostly on the 12 HP SS12 models, I thnk most 10's stayed with points.
