Just brought home a well used 1630. This is my first garden tractor. Engine not running, might be electrical according to info from previous owner. Included with tractor a well used (rusted out) mower, 2 furrowers, disc set, and a rear drag blade. Needs a good bit of tlc. Will post pics soon.

Wow, the whole collection looks nice. Is that bumper OEM or added? Looks nice either way, just wondering why so far out in front?

A lot of them have the same style bumper. Dealer added maybe. Length is be able to open Hood to add fuel and access engine. CA hold weight to hold down front end.

what a lot of people don't understand is just how big these tractors are, sure in the pic you get a feel for it, but when it is parked next to another garden tractor then you see they are monsters...My S-24 is wider and longer than my Case 446 which are on the big side for garden tractors, and the 1630-32 are Bigger yet...

Are the wheels on the 1630-32 16s or 25 inch rims.
