I've heard of a Lennox Kittytrack but have never seen one. I have a subscriber asking about one that they restored...what model year. Anyone have a resource for the Lennox? I'm clueless.

I know a guy that has 2 of them that he has restored. According to what info he had found they were built for only 2 years and yes Lennox is the company known for house furnaces. This guy has 3 attachments for them, mower deck, snowblower and dozer blade. He is planning on coming to our show in June so I will get some pictures of his crawlers and some more info.

I don't imagine that track would do much for the lawn when cutting grass.

I was thinking the same thing. I seem to do enough turf damage with my zero turn if I'm not careful.

thanks for the pics! That is one funky monster! Seems like it would chunk out the yard, don't you think?

My dad has one, he sold Lennox furnaces his entire adult life in the family heating and plumbing business. He has had the kittytrack more than 30 years now. It is in excellent shape and you would be surprise the tracks are not as bad as you would think on the lawn. We have it in storage now and has not run in many years, but always starts and idles great when we do run it form time to time. He also has the complete owners manual!! He also has the mower deck, but not the blades. We saw one in an on-line auction this last winter and it went for about $3,000 and was in rough shape, engine did not run, no seat and no attachments, paint was also in rough shape. I can post pictures if anyone is interested.

Wow that brings back memories. My dad had a HVAC business in Michigan and was a Lennox dealer. He received one of those for a sales promotion. We used it around the house for a while until some guy was going by, saw it and made dad an offer he couldn't refuse. I really liked it. Had the front mower and push blade. Thanks for posting the pictures. I don't think anyone at our house took any pictures of his. What a shame.

:wave: zoomedic Welcome to GTTalk! It's great to have you with us!

My dad has one, he sold Lennox furnaces his entire adult life in the family heating and plumbing business. He has had the kittytrack more than 30 years now. It is in excellent shape and you would be surprise the tracks are not as bad as you would think on the lawn. We have it in storage now and has not run in many years, but always starts and idles great when we do run it form time to time...


Thanks for the story Doc (Vet, I assume) It's great to hear stories like that connected with this hobby!

He also has the complete owners manual!!


That would be something of great interest to the guy that Kate was talking about. Maybe you could scan a copy into the Manuals Section?

...I can post pictures if anyone is interested.


:wewantpics: Absolutely! WE :love: :camera:

That's a cool little machine. Kinda looks like one of those Bolens snowmachines. Can't remember what they where called.

What's the mechanics of it?
