Damn that's one mean machine jon.
Is that a 2072?

Got any other Pics of that Beast?


Dr.B is that a 42 inch deck and a s8d 8 1/4 hp?

My neighbor is trying to sell me his restored 850 with blower and 36"? deck but it's really lacking in the Power department.The engine is a fresh rebuilt s8d.I think he only ran it 3 times scene the complete restoration.
He uses an old 1254 with 12hp Tecumseh to plow and mow his jungle of a yard.

The 850 has its original 8 1/4HP engine. The red deck is a 42''
I dont seem to have any power issues when I mow with this machine. The 850's were usually sold with a 38'' deck though
My 1050 has the TR-10D 8 1/4HP and I use that to plow, pull things, and snow blow the drive way without any power issues.

This is my main pair. The slightly larger mower is a 1953 Farmall Super C. It has a 72" Woods belly mower. The Farmall only mows grass and its been that way for better than 30 years. The only repairs required in that time is a new water pump for the tractor and four sets of deck bearings, four sets of blades, and four belts. The deck only has one belt and it is 285 inches long! Costs about $70 each. I did put "newer" tires all the way around in early 2010. 36 inch rubber is hard to find used and then its hard to pay for if you can find any!
The Cub Cadet is a 1971 model 109 with a 44" deck. I mainly use it to trim up close to the house or as a backup. I have mowed the entire place with it during wet conditions but it takes forever and uses a lot more gas.

Thanks all! This one is the '66 and it is about as original as one can find including the cracked and broken hood and welded long ago deck. A good friend of mine says that the patina of time gives it character. :D
