He will probably struggle selling it for that price unless someone goes nuts over it.

 

I have a full manual for those tractors if anyone needs info.

He has some rare ones. Never heard of a JD 235 or a LX173. Must be European models.

Here ya go Cat, the JD 235 is a later model GT, I almost bought one at auction a couple of years ago.

Looks like that is a Huffy built mower.  I would love to have it, but is too far.  I had a 7hp Penncraft rider when I was a kid.  My family bought it new, it was built by MTD.  It looked like a scaled down, sheet metal MTD 990.  We also had a couple Huffys like that Penneys.  They are built tough for a lawn mower and are nice to trim with.  They are basically a riding push mower, 26 or 28 inch cut I believe.

Marvin, there are a few running around out there.  I think they were only built one year.
