I thought I would share a few pics of this.  I always keep my eye out for the horizontal shaft GT6000 for engine donors.  It seems like they can have anywhere from a vertical Kohler, then you see some horizontal Briggs, then the somewhat rare Kohler magnum horizontal.  I had heard some had Onan's, but had never seen one.  I was shocked when I called the guy about this one to hear it had the Onan.  It is in super shape and has under 200 original hours.  I can't find it in my heart to remove the P220.  This has to be one of the most overpowered light garden tractors ever made.

Congratulations on a really good find. It is a really nice survivor. It would be a shame to do anything other than keeping it as it is.  Good Luck, Rick

I didn't know Onans were in the Gt series Craftsman. I knew they were in the SS series. Thanks for sharing

Nice find.  I had the 18 horse model with the Briggs twin, indestructable rear end, quite a beast.  Can still get a lot of parts from sears online.

Should be around for another 30 years. Basically a brand new unit.
200 hours is < 3 summers mowing at the farm.

The older gentlemen I got it from said his neighbor bought it new with the front blade and it was only used for pushing snow, which isnt that often around here.  He said he got it 10 or so years ago with 35 hours on it and the rest came from him mowing occasionally with it.
