I decided to buy a deluxe muffler from a fellow member here.And since it's +6 here today, I went and swapped out the pepper shaker for this shiny hardware. I think it even runs better with this exhaust installed. Lol

That looks great. How does it sound? I find the pepper shaker on the Wisconsin in my Bolens to be a bit loud, I would probably buy one of those if it is quieter.

It is a lot quieter actually.and purty. Lol.My 10 has a deluxe muffler on it too,but only the ends are left of it. So it's quite loud. But I like the sounds of this one.didn't think to take a video of before and after.

Looks great on there! I'm going to have to keep an eye out for one to put on my 12. Mine has the "pepper shaker" on it now.

I got this off MFDAC. It was posted in the parts section here. The excange rate is at a record low, so it was more than what I wanted to pay. But the parts itself was well worth it.

Looks good. I had one on my 12, but the muffler went bad, so I put a stack on. Like the stack, but also like the chrome.

Noel, my last 12 that I sold here had a stack on it. I love the look of a stack on this series. Looks just like the bigger 165 tractors. I'm not a Chrome guy,but it sure sets the tractor off.

Chrome looks nice today but in a year it will be mostly gone.  Just as well get a steel one to start with.  Chrome sure looks nice on the show tractors though.

Glad it will work for you! This muffler was loud compared to the muffler on the new engine I put on my 12G!

The chrome on that one is 41 years old so it should last a while yet! Pic is the same muffler 5 years ago.

I'm not one for an engine to be too quiet. Lol. Lots quieter than before. That's for sure.

Amazing the difference between those and the pepper shakers.

MH81, yes. Much better than looking at a rusty old tin ball.
