The 1966 Suburban 12 is coming along nicely with a little TLC. This tractor starts,runs,shifts and steers about like new. Gotta love these old Suburbans.

Nice suburban!
I have the same tractor in the 10 horse version. In my opinion the suburbans are just about the best garden tractors ever built.

You know I don't think so but I would have to look to be sure. I never mess with the old style decks. I always use the '70 and up style when I use a Suburban to mow. This is a very nice old style deck though so I may find out when I pull the cover to check the pulleys and belt underneath.

Thanks all. I'm really pretty amazed at the overall condition of the tractor (and deck). It looks like something that one person owned and took very,very good care of for a long time.

no they are not, the center of the deck is pushed out 4-6 inches for the front spindle, just like any other un-timed deck.
