The only thing that says GT is the ad...
The parts pictorial doesn't show any GT brackets.
I'm sure it could be used on a GT, but I need more proof that it was MADE for a GT

That and he had it hooked up and running, but didn't take 45 seconds to plug in a trouble light?
Bidders be aware, I guess.

Jim, did you drive up to Eaton and get your discs?

 

I would love it, but already too much for my pockets.

Marty I'm going up Tuesday. He works in West Chester so he offered to bring it at his work. This will be a lot closer....close to an hour less. I agree the fact that he didn't check the output at the receptacles bothers me too.

Yes - something seems wrong with this statement , that he would spend an hour hooking it up to something and never plug in anything???

I ran one I got at an auction , and as soon as it was running I plugged a drill into it just to see . Its the first thing your instincts tell you to do.

That's cool.

If it's the guy I think it is, he sells a lot of Sears stuff, but his prices are usually pretty high....IMO.

I bought one of those 2 years ago at a Swap Meet. The panel was damaged but the like new B&S 243341 engine attached to it ran perfect. The guy demonstrated that it still produced power so, I bought it for $100. The engine is now in an AC B10 and the generator is on a shelf.

That generator was sold as a universal type generator by Sears. I'm not sure if they sold attachment hardware to mount it on their tractors. I do have an old Sears 4kw with mounting hardware. It is a different brand of generator. Be suspicious of all generators. Many times people will overload them and fry the coils. That is where I get good engines(when they aren't tapered shaft). Good Luck, Rick

Let me know if you ever decide you want to gain shelf space...
