Nice tractor Adam.  Where did you find it?  Is the deck in good shape?

The deck is good, missing the belt covers, picture of it is in the bottom row(with the back blade on top), third pic from the left.  A buddy of mine that goes to the same auctions as me showed me a pic of this tractor at the store where I work and told me his neighbor told him he was crazy when he offered it to him for $300, I didn't have much interest in it at that time, fast forward to the last auction in October and he offered it to me for $200 and I said as soon as I could get the cash together I'd buy it, ended up getting the back blade while I was there.  I had to remove the deck to fit it on my trailer(only 4' between the non removable sides).

That left rear tire has a unique tread. What brand is it? Tractor looks good.

Without looking at it, I'm not sure, one wheel is on backwards, probably for use on hillsides, I plan to change that, probably going to put ag tires on this tractor at some point.

Jus made a 3.5 hour (not counting dinner) round trip to Fulton, NY last night to get a snow blower for this tractor, has minor rust(may need to replace a couple pulleys), and missing the half of the PTO shaft that goes on the tractor(may have already found one), only paid $100 for it.

wish I could find a snow blower for one of mine, within a couple hour ride that isn't $500.  but I have other (non GT) irons in the fire right now, will get by with one of my walk behinds again for now.... my driveways (2) aren't that huge anyways (both 20x50) so I really don't need a blower that bad just would like to get one. if I had a long winding drive like some of you guys have described, it would probably be a more pressing issue than it is....

 

I have a Deere 828D, and a Sears Trac Drive 26" that I replaced the dead 8hp that came on it with an 11hp Snow King that has been collecting dust around here for a couple of years. I have not been able to try out the trac drive one as of yet.  then I have a 2 cycle 1 stage MTD (hey that one was free) for cleanup, and the sidewalks and porches.

I have those on my CC 3208 in 24/10.50/12, I'll see what brand mine are also.

Always amazes me that the S and GT models usually have good grilles

except for the ones that I tend to wind up with. the hoods are what I usually find beat up

This is the first set of 24/10.50/12's I've ever had or seen for that matter. I've had plenty of 24/12/12 and 26/12/12, but not this size.
