Need some advice before I make another stupid buy. I have a chance to pick up a GT 19.9 tractor.

Includes garden plow, front snow plow, 40"disk,  42"mower deck, 8  HP. rear tiller, 19.9 Onan motor.

Says it runs great, no smoke, however it hunts a little at idle. Looks to be all original, not in bad shape for the age. No cracks in dash and mower deck looks good. Want's about a grand for it.

What do you guys think ? I have to act on it soon. I have tools and the ability to work on it.

Am I being (seen coming) or blindsided ?     Thanks in advance

Welcome  to GTtalk. If I may ask, what do they want for the whole deal? Sounds like a good running tractor to me. Do you have any photos of it? It just depends on the price and condition.

To me, I'd place the plow, tiller, and disc at about $400, so the grand would make the tractor $600, and at the max I would give.  These Onan engines want to hunt a lot, and is usually just a slight adjustment needed on the low speed screw.

  I'd offer $800+ for it myself.

Never mind, I see it now. :wallbanging:

 

I know know bigger HP old style Sears bring good money. I would say if everything runs good and operates as it should, that $1,000.00 may not be too far out of line. I would try to haggle with him on it just to see if you can get it any cheaper.

The 19.9 is a good engine, that's what my 4041 PowerMax has, it's very powerful.

Top notch tractor, if it's all there and in good shape.
The Onan's are tough nuts, but expensive to fix.
The electric lift is worth a bill and a half on eBay
I agree with Daniel on the $800, but it's probably closer to 900 in stuff. Depends on the market in your area
It's the unknowns that will get you, so try really hard to get it as cheap as possible to allow for repair & maintenance.

This would be the kind of package I would love to pickup to replace my Gravely 16g.  The hunting is because the engine is running lean and the govenor is trying to make up the difference.  A carb cleaning/adjustment or both is needed to clear that up.  Pretty simple on an Onan.  Onans are good engines, and the price to overhaul isnt as high over a Kohler as it once was.  Some parts are available aftermarket and Kohler parts have really gone up in the last couple years. Biggest mistake is folks neglect to decarbon the heads and adjust the valves every 200 hours.  Kohlers do not require this, Onans DO.  Out of balance engines from valves staying partial open or not opening enough is a quick way to a broken rod or worse.   I would be all over that tractor if it was close.  Mike

Maybe just a little high on price, those rear Sears tillers are going for 250-400 by themselves. The 19.9 is the biggest Hp suburban made and is sought after, that's the Onan B52 big block. The 5 blade disc are not that plentiful either so that's a little more rare than the 4 blade.

If the upper grill is in tack, I've seen those go for 200 -250 by themselves on evilbay.

If I were to break it down for my area

 

moldboard plow 75-125

disc 75-125

front blade  75-150

rear tiller  250-400

electric 3Pt  100-200

tractor with mowing deck  400-600

I didn't catch the electric lift.  I figured $75 each for plow and disc, $100 for the plow, and $150 for the tiller being it's not known if it runs.  And I stayed on the low end.
