Thanks for that link. I had no idea that there were that many models. I bookmarked that site. I need to go back and check out all the info.

Spent some time today to see what I got here, tried to mount both attachments and both are missing small parts to make them work. Of course I never seen or worked on these tractors before so it's a learning process to.

I'm not sure I think they say 18hp???
I can see why they would make a good Garden tractor, you sit on top of 4 batteries 250lbs, plus the main drive motor is mounted behind the rear axle, all of this extra weight right on top of the rear wheels is not there on a gas tractor.

Smaller about the size of the 10s, 12s, lower hood height but it probably weighs the same or more than the 14s, 16s.

You should make up easily removeable dual stacks for it. Round up some business for the hearing doctor, when your neighbors see you cutting
the lawn.LOL

That's in good shape.
And no grease/oil to clean up.

Now for the bad rust, from what I gather and have seen in pictures battery box rust is a big problem, this one is no exception.
Inside each battery box there is a plastic try on the bottom, then a plastic bag lines the box, then the batteries go in.
This is what mine looks like.

This tractor came with a 42" rear discharge mower, I tried to mount it and found some parts missing that I'll have to find or make up.
The lift strap is not there, 1 of the 4 L shaped arms is missing and a 3 link piece of chain.
This mower uses the electric lift on it.
2 of the 3 motors turn freely the other is very stiff, but overall a solid deck.

Doug, that looks like a Peerless transmission. If so, it should be relatively easy to get parts for it. There is a bit of rust damage but the panels seem to be all straight, by that I mean not curved, which will make it easier to weld patches in or make new panels. Overall it is in pretty good condition.

I also got a 36" wide snow blower that has wings on it to give it a 44" width overall. The blower is in really good shape, turns nice and free, has the shoot rotater that works, the scraper edge has next to no wear on it the skid shoes are set low and are worn out, looks like this thing will work.
It is missing a few parts that I'll have to get.
The bracket that goes on the front bumper for the lift strap.
2 small brackets for the lift assist springs.
The front strap for the lift.
Some pins.
The biggest problem I have is the black main mounting bracket, it slides into the slots in the tractors frame, there is suppose to be pins or a rod that goes though the bracket and the frame to hold it in place.
The problem is there are no holes in the tractors frame for this. I don't know if this is the right bracket or not??? Are you just suppose to drill the frame for it to work??? That would solve the problem.

I don't know what I'm going to do with this blower, I'll never use it, I'm thinking about selling it and put the $ towards new batteries.
