While recouping from a bad back injury at work(Been out of work for a month already) I've been trolling Craigslist. Found quite a few good ones of late! I came across a free tractor on CL on Friday of last week. Went to get it after contacting owner, no pictures on ad so no idea what I was getting. Turned out to be a super score for me! A nice LT2000 with bagger! The engine broke a connecting rod but all the good parts on the engine! We loaded it up and came home. Next day swapped a engine out of a LT1000 we had and this machine is very nice! It acts like low hours! While messing with the swap see a fellow answered my text from Friday night for a nice looking DYT4000. Go and meet him in parking lot hour away and it is low hour,117 hour machine with a bad head he states. Look it over and pay him his money. Get it home and only issue was valve Guide pushed out on head. Dad swapped heads with a junk one we kept and fixed this one for later use. Fired up after carb clean and runs nice! The two bin bagger works good as well on it!
THEN find this newer machine on CL for only $100? A MTD based unit but looked like a good flip. Guy stated it made a bang and never ran again? We unloaded it and check for usual items, found exhaust valve on newer Intek hanging open! Quick adjustment and it runs fine!!
Been good picking on Craigslist for us of late!
