Been seeing some of these around for sale. Always thought would be neat machines, long as you got big enough one. There is one local, that looks like newer Green/white model, but says trans reverse works, but clicks in forward gears. These things have same trans as tube frames or totally diff rig?  Sound like a problem to stay away from or easy fix with adjust or such. I'm hearing about the axle free-play all the time on tube ones that fixes many things.  Guy wants $400, which didn't seem like a good deal really, but it is close and thought might look. Has the engine cover missing on back, have seen one at a show and just kinda cheapy plastic thing on that one, seems would be same here. Says deck was worked on, but not what done.  Wait! What am I doing ....thinking another Bolens........slap me......have medicine?

Take two MM's and sleep on it. If problem persists, see a doctor. His name is Brian.
