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!

Just take it easy on your back. Set backs are way to easy to happen. Good Luck, Rick

LOL Thanks guys! I been truck driving for over 20 years and warehouse type work. Guess I knew it was coming, I was very overweight for most of that time. I wore all my joints and such out. Went from 409 to 270 pounds now. Guess I am partly there karl!! I'm on comp right now trying to get better so I can go back to work. Not sure of where though, my current job has no light duty and no were to go in this branch!

Nice run on the tractors. Be careful with that back. I am in the process of filing for my disability due to back and neck injuries. Seems like every time I get to feeling better I screw up again. Good luck.

40% disabled according to this guy. Then next breath says I can work? Not for this company? God knows what the future holds!

Hope things improve in your neck so you can go back to your job . We have a guy at work who fell during hunting season and hurt his back . He's having a heck of of time getting the co to let him back . He's been to company Drs to prove he can work now they sent him for mouth swab drug and alcohol tests . He's the first I heard them doing that to as far as returning to work .

Hi it's actually my lower back that's wrong. Thank you , have to wonder what my job will do. Won't put it past them to fire me since there isn't anything for me there.
