Well we recently purchased a 72" Turf Tiger from the city that was used by some park employees to mow the park. It is a 2005 with a 29 horse DFI Kawasaki liquid cooled engine. It has the 830 hours, and s 72 inch Advantage deck. As many would expect it wasn't treated all that well. The maintenance was performed though, because the park director was in charge of that, and he has to use his budgeted money to buy the mowers. For this fact we decided we would possibly be able to buy it cheap and have a cosmetically horrendous mower that was still in good shape mechanically. At this point we threw in a lowball bid so that if we won it was a great deal, but if we did't we wouldn't be disappointed. Long story short no one else puts in a bid and we get it. Since then we have completely restored it so to speak. We stripped thw whole mower down to nothing but an engine and frame. From there we sanded and painted most everything, unless it was in good condition already. Mechanically all we had to do was put new bearings in the spindles, get a leak in the radiator fixed, reweld the seat frame where a guy had broke it off while using it, and weld somewhere around 20 cracks in the deck. Here are some of the before pics.
