I recently picked up something newer so my GTX 18 needs to go.

This was my primary tractor since 2010 and I hate to see it go but I only have so much room...

 

If you're not familiar with these, they're the same as the Bolens Duratrac tractors.

horizontal Kohler Magnum 18 / shaft drive / Eaton 11 hydrostat / Bolens single speed rear axle / power steering / power implement lift / 800lbs / shaft driven, ground following (like Simplicity) 48" deck

These are a big, heavy duty garden tractor along the lines of the John Deere 318 of the same time period.

 

This has 677 hours and is in very nice overall condition as can be seen in the photos. It has no leaks. It's had annual oil changes and the hydrostat oil was changed two years ago. Also, the PTO coil was replaced about five years ago.

It has Carlisle All-Trails in back and Vredestein V-61s in front.

 

The tractor starts right up but it's had an issue for the last two years where it sometimes surges when not under load. The carb has been rebuilt a couple of times, which didn't help at all, and last year I adjusted the governor which helped somewhat but it could still use some tweaking. It hasn't really affected mowing, as the engine smooths out when the deck is engaged.

 

The deck works well and one of the spindle assemblies has been changed within the last few years but it'll require a small welding repair at one of the hanger mounts. It ripped out while using the deck with my Cyclone Rake last fall. The spot is shown in one of the pictures.

 

I'm located in York, PA

Asking price is $700 but I'm open too all offers.

Feel free to ask any questions or request any other photos.

holy crap that is a nice looking tractor! a tractor that large they didn't have a 42" as an option did they? Reason I ask is my grandfather needs a new mower and this is perfect but the deck would be too big for him.

The OP manual does show a 42" deck for these. It would be Troy-Bilt model 14025. I can't say that I've ever seen one advertised for sale before, though. As far as I know, and I'm sure one of the Bolens guys could verify, the decks for the Bolens Duratracs should fit this as well?

I wish I needed that, it is in great shape & relatively low hours.  It would be a nice addition to my Duratracs but I cannot bring another one home or I won't have a home.

 They are great heavy duty machines & the red is much nicer than the white/green! :D

 

To Vintage Iron, take the 48".  What's 6 inches?  Besides good decks for these aren't abundant.

my grandfather needs a small deck for his property because there's lots of banks and a large deck gets hard to get into the dips at the bottoms of the bank. if not this would be a perfect tractor for him.

I have a 48" deck on my Duratrac,my yard is far from level and has lots of dips,it does a super nice job cutting,those 48" decks are the best cutting deck I have ever used

Is this still available... my father had a GTX 18 and the drive shaft broke and he got rid of it. He loved that tractor and has been looking to replace it.
