I have been after this thing for MONTHS.  Finally got the cash together, tracked the guy down, and brought it home!  Tracks are in great shape, chain seems decent, sprockets aren't overly worn, but there is no engine and its been hacked up a bit.  MORE than savable in my opinion.

 

It also has a Jacobsen hydraulic lift in it.  It was mounted and running off the engine to control the plow at one point.  Cleaned up and remounted properly it would be a cool little attachment to have.

 

I got a sweet low hours 8hp Kohler with it that is gear start and has a stator.  I think it would fit perfectly and have enough power to run the lift as well.  Going to need a LOT of welding and grinding, a few pulleys, engine cover, maybe some lights, etc.  Going to be a sweet build!!

Yeah, you got a good deal on that. Some guys consider these cool enough to sell an organ for.
Pretty sure there are some manuals and flyers here. Check them out when you get a chance.

I'll be watching too. Congrats.

There is a Stuck forum on Yahoo Groups and couple guys own every model made or close, including mowers and tractors and some odd little rigs I never heard of before seeing his items. Lots of good pix there too.

Want to swap the tiller back?

 

Just kidding. Great deal. You now have plenty of projects to keep you busy.
