I inquired about this GT1142. $300 was on the sale tag. I offered $100 and he took it. I needed the mower deck. I took the Jim Dandy on my trailer to pull it up with. It worked fine. He said my tractor looked like a beast. He said the Wheel Horse had been sitting there 3 months.IMG_0259.JPG IMG_0260.JPG

Every tractor has a story. I would not drive it without that belt guard! And what happened to the flywheel?

Belt guard, engine blower housing, and all the miscellaneous came with it. He was having trouble with the spark and other electrical problems. I'm just hoping there is no rod knock after reassembling everything. Didn't so much need the tractor, but I did like the looks of the mower deck.

Looks like a good deal for that price. Won't your Gard'n Mast'rs be jealous?? You probably won't put it in the same barn.
