Drooo0000ling

Twin cylinder Briggs on a Monkey wards With variable speed standard transaxle.Nom Nom Nom.

They are fairly hard to come by.Most of the twin cylinder powered Monkeys from that era were Hydro.
And you got a set of NICE BOLENS wheel weights.I bet alot of Bolens guys are drooling on they're keyboards over those.:rolling:

That seat doesn't look to be original though but it could of been an option.The 6 Monkeys of that era that I had either had the Seat directly bolted to the fender pan or to a sliding mechanism.


You got that right.:D

Quite a deal with with that Monkey Wards.

Thanks for all the comments, main reason I snagged this one is because of the hitch.
it's a tank just wish I could find out the exact year of it.

You guys may call them monkeys :mad2: but my monkey can bet any cab cadet and other brands any day.
Being you have the wheel weights it is a good time to make it into a puller. :smile1:

u got a great deal on that tractor,congrats,to find out the exact year look on the left side of the engine when ur sittin on it,if its the 16 horse single cylinder briggs,should have 326431 as the first six numbers,not sure on the next ones but i know theres four,then there will be another six numbers and that goes year,month and then day that the engine was built so should be the same year as the tractor unless there was a repower at some point,for instance 720119 would mean that the engine was built january 19 of 1972,hope this helps ya
