No way to tell if she's rolled over, and I'd bet it has and has over 720hrs on it at least. Good looking tractor no matter the hours! I don't think she's ugly!

I think the hour meter has rolled over i mean she has some minor oil leacks but it starts so easy. I dont know what to do with it this makes 9 tractors now it has no deck but it will be a good tractor to pull and move stuff

Nice straight tractor. Pretty it up and find a deck or other implements. After market lifts are available for these.

She's not ugly, just wearing work clothes. Looks like she'll make a good tugger, good find!

Nice tractor. I have a 782 and just love it. Hydro linkage is getting a bit sloppy and loose but that can be fixed.

That thing is in very nice shape, looks like just a bath and a little wax and she would clean right up and not even look like it is wearing work clothes. I vote also that he hour meter has rolled over. Might be a little rich on the low end if it starts without choke, especially when it is cold out.

that is not entirely true. if it is a series I 17hp kohler yes they had issues with oiling and loosing connecting rods. the series II fixed the problems they had with the series I and they are a very good engine
