Well looks like the 1556 is gonna be going to a new home not far from where it was manufactured.

However we will be hauling home a nice 1886. Called the guy today and worked a deal.

As soon as it's home we will fix the decals.

Nice machine! One of these days I'm going to have to find one like that and join the large frame club... just need some more property first to justify it!

Yeah after using a large frame for heavy work you never really want to use anything else.

I'm pretty excited, can't wait to get it home. I've always wanted an 1886.

Fwiw this one is a 72 1886 03, it's coming with a tiller, deck, and a blower.

The decals bother me though, anyone else notice it?

Decals being on backwards I could live with. At least for awhile!
But, I'd need to add foot pads before I could put my feet on that fresh paint!

Noticed the decals on FB... bit my tongue. To each their own, but for me personally it drives me nuts to see stuff like that. Looks like a nice machine overall (and will be even better when the decals are corrected).

Nice tractor. As to the decals being "backwards", there is a simpler solution, turn the seat around... :poke: good luck with the swap.

Fine looking tractor! It's good that it came with all these attachments as well.

Nice looking tractor! How recent is the paint?

Initially when I looked at the pic, something looked a bit different, but when it was pointed out that they are backwards then it became pretty obvious!

Very nice machine! I almost got too much seat time this past weekend on mine moving 30" of the white stuff with the 54" power angle blade. It was a little tough at first, but it got the job done!

Yes, I will be placing an order with Rick for some foot pads for a couple tractors,the paint is really fresh so it kinda makes me nervous peeling decals off.

Here's a couple more pictures of it.
