Includes 42 inch mower & 36 inch snow blower with wheel weighs and tire chains. Pulley that powers PTO needs to be replaced. Runs well.

I changed my mind after awhile and emailed the owner. His father bought it new in 1969(the year I made Eagle and graduated HS). It ran and was in very good condition except the seat and the PTO. He drove it onto my trailer for me. He was a very nice gent and knew it was worth more as parts but wanted it to go to a good home. It is now the best condition tractor that I own. Good Luck, Rick

That is AWESOME.I'm very glad that you got it.

 

By the looks of it that Haban Snow Blower was either never used or only used once or twice.

 

Manual is Here.http://gardentractor...41-860-141-960/

 

I'm willing to bet that the Key sheared on the bottom PTO.Someone Brazed the pulley fast to the shaft on my old MTD FourteenHundred.Guessing they didn't know how to take it apart or just didn't care.

Joe's Outdoor Power has 1 PTO for sale on Ebay.Even looks like the same color paint. $46.49 + free shipping

Just noticed in the Pics it is missing the Belt/clutch guard that covers the clutch and engine pulley.If he doesn't have it Joe also has one of those for sale.$23.24 + Free Shipping

Thanks for the info. I will take it apart first and see if I can just do the needle bearings. Good Luck, Rick

I ordered the PTO and shield today. I still haven't been able to get the old one out. The clutch in it now is a newer type replacement and takes more work to get the belts out. Good Luck, Rick

 

He said that he had used the blower many times. It is thoroughly waxed and he has a nice smooth paved driveway.
