Every now and again I peel over to the salvage yard as it's only couple miles from home, and picked this up. Looks complete, and turns over, but she don't run. I should have her running tonight or tomorrow tho. Seems to be in really nice shape, and even came with 2 tanks of gas. 1 drive Tire looks new, and the seat is nice, stickers are all there, and not much paint worn off. Not bad for a hundred green George Washingtons. I'm not sure if I want to keep it to give my lgt165 a break, or sell it, but I thought I'd share it with you folks over here in the Simple forums. :) I'll wash her off, and snap some more after pics for you all.

They are a nice mower. The only draw back is if your yard is not smooth they can ride rough. Letting some air out of the drive wheels helps.

Thank you.

I think I'm going to sell it after thinking on it. I live on a corner lot that has a very steep grade with a drain in it, so traction will be an issue there, and the deck is definitely smaller than my Ford. Yes, I love seat time, but NOT cutting grass. Heck, I'd love to keep it, but space IS a problem. :)

They look at it value wise, not scrap wise. I wish it was the other way around!

Thank you for the great tip, and I'm positive that other people will use it too. :)

I am going to sell it as my 165 Ford has much more to offer. Now I just have to figure out what it's worth, and then find a buyer lol

Believe me gang, if I had the room, I'd keep it. This thing is COOL! The setup, and rear steer is far-out :) Stiemmy
