It's a parts or rebuildable unit, some parts taken off, but are included. Not sure why I keep buying more, but hopefully I get time to work on them. But with buying this one, between it & the Snapper 1855 I bought from David (acrefarm2004), I'll surely have a great working tractor. Actually, with them both in decent shape, I should end up with 2 runners. Made the deal on the phone just now, and possibly going after it all tomorrow.
