Has that Rugg or Springfield look to it. I am sure someone on here knows exactly what it is.

That is a Springfield for sure, you can tell by the hood. It is a mid 60s model. I will get my manuals out later because it is definitely a good find.

That would be great. I was thinking possibly Springfieldby comparing to some pictures on here. I would certainly love to know more.

The way the mower is bolted to the frame says to me that the rear tires / tranny all move up and down to raise and lower the deck.

Good luck & neat find.

Actually it is the engine and deck that move up and down. There is a knob behind the seat that you turn to adjust it. The tranny is on the same plate. Not sure how the tranny works yet. Lots of levers to figure out. One on each side of the tranny. One on the left side at the rear of the engine also that looks like engages the blade. Foot pedal on the right also looks to engage the blade though. When you press it it pushes an idler onto the belt that I think goes to the tranny. It then turns to chain drive. Got to say I never saw a brake system like this before. You push down on the foot pedal in front of the rear left tire and it makes another bar rub on the tire to stop. You guys should see all the stuff this guy has. Some of everything!I may see about getting a few pics from around his yard.

I downloaded some manuals and found that it is a Springfield LT 425. 4 hp 25 inch cut. Made from 63-66. I would say in those years the might have changed the Steering wheel. The brochures show round ones but the one i'm looking at is different. it is kind of V'd in at the top. They were all yellow, so I would be able to match up the paint off the rear fenders if need be.

Ah, I never thought about the manual section, Bruce must be uploading all the manuals he has onto the forum. Glad you found the manual here. So is the tractor yours or someone elses?

It is not mine yet but I think it will be soon. Another guy wants it too butI am pretty sure I have first dibbs. Any idea what it would be worth?

Couple hundred bucks for a Springfield is reasonable. I hope you get it.

That is what he's asking. I may trade him for my G10 that need an ignition module. He's a little interested. I'll keep you posted.

Any time you can ditch a Bolens for a Springfield is a good deal. (Sorry Adam, Bob, Doc, and any1 else, I had to take the cheap shot LOL)
