Every since seeing Daniels Unico I have always wanted one. This one popped up on eBay. Came with the tiller and front blade. Does not run, no spark. But for $183 hard to turn down.c2a011e6c018df901651c1f130ae9042.jpg02940b7c5254136c05307615ad2fd992.jpgc10089e3f5edfe580de8226bb8a430dd.jpgebaca146be49b4401081d9e413a5bd0c.jpg

Great deal. I would love those attachments for my MTD 860. Check the points first, then remove the engine flywheel cover to get the mouse nest out. Chances are the mice damaged the magneto. Try cleanning it an use liquid insulation to replace the chewed of wiring insulation. Good Luck, Rick

That is a great find. 1972 with tiller, 3pt hitch, front blade, good tires, dash not shattered and the seat is not too bad. Neat little muffler. Do you have the front blade sub-frame?

 

Looks like the engine has been swapped? The starter is not original with some kind if heat exchanger on it.

 

Keep us posted and holler if you need parts.

 

I like your trailer with the power winch.

Wow!  Great looking tractor!  Even if the engine it not original it shouldn't be easy to find one that will make it original looking.  The paint looks to be in great shape!  At the price you paid that would have even been a good price for just the 2 attachments around here let alone the 3 point set-up!  Please take lots of pictures and share with us what you're doing with it!

P.S.  Buy a lottery ticket with that kind of luck!

She's beautiful......it doesn't look like it was used very much, and what a great deal!!!  I'd say this is a great barn find.

Daylight pictures after being power washed. Are the front blade guides factory? I am missing 1 hanger for the blade frame

Front guides are factory. Should be easy to make the missing piece. The engine sure looks like the original 15hp Briggs. Can you post a picture of the starter generator? Curious what that is about.

 

Sure is in very good condition. Even the deck wheels are not broken.

It has a 15hp sticker on the motor - he said it had been converted from points to electronic ignition

First image didn't post, Scott!

 

Thanks for fixing it! I wasn't sure how to edit it to work.
