Hey Guy's just wanted to say hello and tell you about me new to me 73 Sear's SS/16.
I just purchased a very clean version with a bunch of atatchment's! It came with a mower deck,Snow Plow,Snow Blower Broadcast spreader,and a litter wisk that will need to be recanvased. The tracto is equiped with the Techomsea engine. It is running a little rough at the moment(I suspect the usual) Bad gas and sticky needle valve but other than lubbing things up good it's what I feel is a decent deal. What do Guy's feel a rig like this with all the attatchments is worth? I want to feel like I didn't pay to much Lol!

I would need pics to make an accurate guess but I would say the whole package should be able to fetch around $650.

:welcome:to GTTalk! Price depends on so much... Condition, paint, abuse, location, the buyer and seller. Pics may help us better determine your deal "grade".

Sounds like a nice package, can't wait to see it.

I don't know much about the value of the Sears tractors. I know that my local parts guy offered me an SS12 for $350 and that was without any attachments at all. I have a feeling that I could get him down some on the price, but that seems a fair ballpark for a tractor in decent original condition. As far as the attachments go, I just don't know enough about them to say. I think that as everyone else has said, pictures would make the estimates a lot easier and more accurate.

Hey Guy's thanks for the advice! I think I will drain the tank and fill with fresh gas then runIMAG0072.jpg sea foam through and then if it still does not run I will have to pull it apart...I will try to put some pix up of it for you to see...

I got one looks about like that for sale right now, mine is rougher looking but runs great. Oh, and it is only a 10 hp. Has a snowblower, mower and snow blade. $400, I have had a lot of action on it but no takers so far.

Guy's I have a question I'm looking at the front of this tractor and it looks like there is a piece thats missing? Or is this just like this because the belts have to go to the atatchments here


I am pretty sure you are missing the bottom section of that hood or at l least part of it. Look on ebay for suburban hood parts, you can at least see what you are missing.

he is missing the snowblower piece, most people when they first put the blower on they took it off and lost it. I was lucky to get the piece with my suburban 12.

Nice tractor and welcome to GTTalk. The drive belt from the engine to the transmission is a 5/8" x 81". The part number from Sears is STD325810 and is available. If you have the model number for the mower and snow blower than I may be able to find you belt size. Enjoy your new tractor.
