Here you go, not sure why the owner would do this, but what do I know! LOL!

Also this seems like a nice machine, but is it really all original or has some things been swapped out on it? I don't know much about the 1053. I've always had 1050's.

Yea I saw that one. Its really nice, and for its condition he really is asking a fair price if its been totally restored at one point. I'm not really looking to buy the 1053, I'm saving to buy a ride a matic.  I just wasn't sure if that 1053 was all original or not, so i asked so i could learn. But I think after further investigation this 1053 is alot of tractors mixed into one. LOL! I just blew the pics up and noticed the hood says 1253! Mower deck belt gaurd is missing, front tires look like there are off a 1000??, steering from a 800, 900 or 1000?? wrong seat and fenders?? I maybe wrong, but i'll let the masters educate me on it.

The versamatic is a 2 wheeled tractor I believe. Not ready to get into them yet. I'd like to stay with the 4 wheeled tractors for now.

The one with the steel wheels could be from an Amish or Mennonite area.

 

Some groups would allow tractors and such as long as they replace the rubber tires with steel wheels.

 

The reason was that having steel wheels would keep them on the farm and not driving them into town.

That tractor has been around the block for sure, likely a 1053 with the wrong decals

 

Been painted brown instead of white and looks to have gotten mixed up with a early husky tractor and has the  front wheels steering wheel and possibly steering tower replaced from a 900 or 1000 model

Some type of odd divider is next to the exaust as well, definietly not a 1253 as that would be a tecumseh engine

Those wheels are very interesting.My lower back hurts just looking at those lol

 

Not a bad price on either one of them.

 

does the hour meter on the 1700 say 6,697 hours on it?

I've seen steel wheels on large tractors and even forklifts, back when I was in the business, but thats the first garden tractor that I've seen with them.

There are rubber blocks for a somewhat softer ride on the rears.
