Just saw this ad .....no pics


sears 16hp lawn tractor
I have a 16hp lawn mower with a 40`` snow blower and about a 3 blade, 48`` deck attachment for sale. it will need some work to get going again but it would be great for the lawn mower races. it isfrom the 70s

Wondering if anyone might know the model from that?...Wants $300

SS16 would be an Onan twin, ST16 would have the Tecumseh OH 160. Either way, sounds like a deal if it is actually a 70's Sears.

I stand corrected, I'm not a Sears guy but I like the Suburban's.

Sorry about the pics


Did you borrow Maynards camera again? :poke:

I have a version of x-ray vision called GT vision... It allows me to see thru years of grime & bird poop to see the inner beauty of GT's... And that's a beauty!

Congrats on your new Suburban! :thumbs:

PS, is it missing the side piece on the grill?

Not sure....there are some cover pieces that came with it......It was in a dark barn and was dark when we loaded it and when I got home.......Sort of bought it sight unseen....lol

Will try and figure some stuff out and get better pics on the weekend

VERY nice find!! I think you'll like that old tecumseh. I have a couple tractors with the old cast iron tecumsehs and they run like a swiss watch.

Nice score on the tractor. Is that a weight at the rear hitch? Kind of looks like a big blob of lead.

Sometimes, Maynard's camera will make things a lot larger than normal, also!:bigrofl:

The side grill is removable (and often lost). It must be removed for the blower belt routing, I was just wondering if it had been lost to the years.
