Ruff like a dog?    :rolling:

 

The price is the deciding factor with that...

 

Oh wait-  You are getting out of the hobby ain't ya?>

NO!   Buy the 861 diesel behind it!  :worshippy1:

I grew up on 861's.  3 diesels and 1 gasser - we didn't change implements too often.  :smilewink:

You don't own it, therefore you need it.

Meh just a lawn mower.Does have a fairly heavy Hydro unit in it though.Steering gears are weak in those.Well more the plastic Steering bushing on the bottom of the column.Causes the gears to slip,strip and break teeth.

If it's cheap I'de get it and throw a $20 rebuild kit in the carb and fuel pump.The one I had here the deck kept engaging on it's own till I welded up the slots and the tab on the leaver.

 

Hate the mowers with this style mower engagement.They always wear out.Part to fix it is $16 and 5 minutes of welding and grinding on the lift leaver so it's not bad to fix if it needs it.
