Hydra drive, all original, needs new seat cover, great shape.  MF720 blower is early style, have most of parts to hookup.  $400 or interesting trades?

IMG_4658.JPG Update: I spend some time with the tractor this weekend.  I have added some pictures.  It is in great all around condition.  The tractor starts. Drives and cuts.  Hydra drive is tight and clean. The deck shell is solid, no holes or welds and new blades. Has all original knobs and decals.

 

I am not sure if the tractor has the original engine, it has a different oil fill tube and someone hacked up the engine deflector (see picture) other than that it looks original and the tins are original.  It runs great.

 

It has a couple of issues, the deck is noisy and may need bearings.  The seat is shot, but the seat pan is OK.   It has a new started, but it grinds at times.  The front grill near the air cleaner is cracked (see picture)

Update #2.  After some research it turns out the tractor did have a new short block at some time in its life.  The metal tag on the engine reads SBH-6248A and SER 6281F.  The SBH stands for Short Block Horizontal.
