Been wanting a larger diesel scut/super garden tractor with proper 540rpm rear pto.   Found this close by, runs excellent, 60" mmm that will be up for sale soon as I want a 3pt mounted finish mower.  And its from the Allis clan, just from the Deutz years.    Should clean up real nice.  I have all the shields for the deck, and brackets to lock the deck in the raised position so I can use the 3pt hitch.    Mike

I do have a nice JD 318 with lots of extras that needs to go down the road fast so "she who must be obeyed" can put the money back in the account to cover bills next month. Had to take a leap and grab this while it was available.  Everything else was 6+ hour drive to go get.  And this size of a tractor with the deck on it pushes my little trailer to its limts.  Mike

Nice looking outfit.  I would keep the center mount mower myself.  Never could see why one would want to drive over the grass with 4 big tires to mash it down then try to mow it. Bad enough with just two ahead of the deck.  Guess that is why I like my front mount so well.  Good luck with your new prize.

Thanks, its more about being able to easily ditch the mower to do other things.  I mow mostly with my wife's 1811 Cub Cadet.  The tractor is more about getting ready for our move to the country in the next 5 years.  It will take all we can manage financialy to make the move, so it was decided to get the tractor now.  I plan on getting both a small finish mower and a bush hog for it.  Just going to clean her up, do a little repainting on the frame and engine and take her to a few shows.  You definatly do not see many of these around anymore.  She is of mid 1980's vintage.   Mike

Nice looking machine.  :thumbs:

I agree with chieffan. Try the three point mower before selling the mid mount. Your tractor will be worth more when you go to sell it if the mower is included. That deck won't take up much room if you lean against the wall in a shed.

I will keep it for now, but it will be against a fence with a tarp over it and wood under it.  Don't have a shed for it yet.   That pic was taken at the sellers place.   I am going to build a lean to off my privacy fence to keep her somewhat out of the elements.  Mike

I might just pull the mower deck off and use her as a butt buggie at Portland in 2 weeks.  She is about size of a 430 JD Super GT but with taller rear tires.  She is quieter and easier on fuel than my wife's tempermental Cub Cadet 1811.  Mike
