ive herd it was a 1965 but im not for sure. It is a black dash landlord which would mean it is a landlord 9hp not a 101 landlord. 101's hd a white dash and  10hp motor.

A 1983 611 hydro. Original family owners took amazing card of it. They added seat out of a ford semi which despite what my dad thinks is actually very comfy and they added a bar so you didn't have to reach down to use the hydro it comes right up between your legs. Very cool little mower I'm glad I bought it it'll be my show cruiser so whoever's Tractor gets left at home can toodle around the show grounds on that.
