Found one of these at my dealers the other day, they are selling it on consignment, and I didn't get the price... This is one weird looking machine to say the least. I think it's a 48", but it looks bigger than that, but that's what they told me it was. Also unsure if the Hp of the engine. Being a Kaw. engine it's written in greek. I know that the flywheel is HUGE compared to most other engines. I think they assumed it was a 17 hp. I also have no dealings with them, it's a belt drive, i THINK... The belts are not exposed on the sides like most mowers. All I can see from underneath is the transmission. It needed a jump start and fuel in the tank to get it running. It looked a little rougher than I wanted to go for, but I LOVE the crank height adjustment on the deck... Hours and age was unknown, like I said it is electric start, and it did turn over some till the battery died. There's a red light on the pannel that shows something, not sure what, but it worked. Not sure what kind of grass catcher would fit this unit either. the way the discharge is sort of bent downwards and angled It looks like it would be difficult to find something that would fit... I know they had factory catchers, but I'm sure they are long gone. Accelerator maybe? Iv'e seen other posts on here of people resurecting the older crank deck JD's. Just how good are they? Lets assume that this machine is in fair condition, would it be worth buying, and how much $$ would you give for a decent one?
