An H-14 with mower, snowplow, moldboard plow, and tiller was given to me with gratitude for getting the eyesore out of the middle of their yard where it had broken its front axle(bolts sheared). The Mrs there was so happy with me. It was a fight to drag that thing. Now I know alot more and they are easier.

Never had one, BUT, not looking hard, might some day buy a Late Model say H16 or similar, not a gear or even one of those "Named" ones, which I can't think they are called now, White and green chassis for me! Right deal would have to come along as I'm getting out of Hobbie now and shouldn't get any more projects! :smilewink: :(
