    picked this up from my Aunt. It was bought new by my Uncles dad, back yeasr ago, my uncle took possesion of it after his dad died. Well my Uncle was killed by a drunk driver in Feb of 2007. The mower has sat since then. The weekend he was killed he had jus taken the deck off to replacethe pulleys. I decided to bring it back to life! Put a lil blood, sweat and tears into it!~ It has a 12hp diesel!!

    Looks like a fun toy to tinker with, especially with the diesel! You should clean it up, then run it on grease/vege-oil!! Post pics when she's all dolled up!

    My grandfather has one just like that! I had to change the deck belt on it a couple years ago...talk about a job! The gearbox has to come off, of course, and being as old as these things are, it didn't want to come off. I ended up having to drill out the bolts because they were so rusted and rounded, and then drill new holes and put in new hardware. I liked mowing with it after I fixed it. It'll chug some black smoke in the thick stuff.
