Stopped by my local Deere dealer today to see how much suit case wieghts cost. When I pulled into the lot, there it was, sitting off to the side of all the newer tractors that were in for service. I couldn't believe what I saw, a Custom Color (Patio) 112 and a 42" Patio deck. I didn't want to make a big deal out of it, so I tried to look it over as I passed by it. I went inside to find out the story on it, and found what that the parts guy bought it earlier in the morning froma man who was going to scrap it. I acted a lttle dumb about the whole off color tractor sitting outside. The parts man said he bought it for parts for another 112 his dad had, and acted like he didn't really know what it was either. We walked out to look it over and he said that if I was interested in it, he would sell it. Calmly I tried to work out how much he wanted for it. We got together onthe price and I brought it home.

This is a 1969 112 manual lift Kohler Patio tractor.The only thing it's missing is the original seat cover and pan.. :yelclap::yelclap:

Brian wasnt this part of the deal? You were going to drop off a 110 or a 112? This one should be fine. lol Great find. I sure wish it had been up here, I would be bragging about it to. I just realized. There are decent tractors that are not green, theyre patio lol
