Ordered a walker tractor muffler and some new blades (Oregon replacement Murray blades) for the tractor last week that arrived today. Have a rain cap for it on order but it went backorder and with the impending canadapost strike I don't know when it will come in. Also have a line on a replacement hood and grill in significantly better shape than mine. Anyways thought I'd share a few pics of it with the stack.

Yea I have one that I put on when not in use until the rain cap shows up. Thanks, I'm pretty happy with how it looks and it's a bit quieter than the old pancake muffler that it had on it so that's a bonus.

That's probably the same as I have on Alice. I like it real well!

If you put the tractor in the shed you don't need a rain cap.  Hardest thing in the world on a tractor is the elements.  I guess stack are OK - if you like them.  My Cub 1512 has a short one that don't get in the way of low branches, etc.  That one looks taller than what I would like.  But it is probably a lot quieter than my short one is too.  Good thing we don't all like the same thing.  Nice looking MF you have there.

I was worried it'd be too tall for my liking but it's slightly lower than my head height so if there's a branch low enough to hit it, it'll also hit my head, I just keep those branches cut enough to not cause me trouble. This pic might show the size/height a little better. Had to let the boss check it out...

Cardinal Sin.  You don't carry kids on a piece of equipment, including a tractor.  Please stay safe.

I love the look of the stack with these tractors, makes them look even more like their full-sized brethren. 

 

Where did you get the mower blades?  I'm assuming I'll need to look for something aftermarket.  I need to replace mine - I love the way the deck cuts too much to retire it just because the blades are worn out

Ordered them from a place in Ontario (Canada) called bantasaw. They're 15 1/32" Murray blades. Haven't had the deck on yet to try them out but they've got to cut better than the old worn out one's I've been using

Banta saw I find are good to deal with, 2 day delivery for me as I'm in Ontario.

Shipping to here was just under a week but that's pretty typical for here. I'll definitely deal with them again. Will be ordering a head gasket for the thing next, most likely from them.

Growing up my father always had old massey tractor's, mostly a 135. So mine's been dubbed the mini me.

I like the stack. It gives a nice look.
That is a good way to get a boy hooked on tractors. My son spent many an evening riding along learning to drive.
