The picture is the one that was in the ad, ad lasted 1 day, I jumped on this one missed out on a few for different reasons.
Tractor looks better in the picture that it is but everything works, hydro, lift, pto all working. Motor sounds good no smoke no knock. 1975 model.
Tractor comes with complete snow blower, home made weight box, 2 link tire chains, mower deck and the tow behind gang mowers.
Still have to pick it up and pay the balance but the deal is locked in.
When I get it home I'll take some more pictures, paid $975.

You may find that the gang mowers are fairly old.
It's hard to tell with the small photo, but they look like the same set that I have for my 46 Bean Cutler.

Good deal there Doug. The 16 looks to be in pretty good shape and I like the gang mowers too.

Now that you have a set of gangs mowers will you still be looking to make an electric mower deck ( for your electric tractor ) ? Al

Nice tractor Doug. Are you going to do a restoration or use it as is. We see a few 14/16's down here in Nova Scotia but lately there have been more of the newer 1655/1855's for sale. It's funny how you won't see one for months then 2 pop up at the same time.

Thanks for all the comments guys, going to use as it is for time being, fix up any problems, not really interested in keeping the snow blower, I have 4 others.
Owner told the main job of this tractor was to remove snow from his drive, the mower deck was just put on, said it works good and the last time the deck was on the tractor was 15 or so yrs ago. Same for the gang mowers not used in yrs but every thing kept inside.
I post some pictures of the reel mowers they are at home now.
