    Theres a lot of people around here running those old machines. Most are retired from years of commercial use and will serve as homeowner mowers for a long time. I just serviced one last night and that guy is looking for another. For the record, thats not a hydro transmission and not a 22 hp engine.

    Stay away from that antique. More trouble than it's worth.

    I know its not a hydro because my first job out of high school was as a mechanic for a yazoo dealer. That lasted about twenty years so I know a whole lot about something that just doesn't matter :) There is a strong following for these old machines but don't consider it for anything more than once a week homeowner use.
