7016 Just Fell In My Lap

Recommended Posts

Tom_Byrne
I posted a while back about a 7016 Hydro I had spotted in a yard. It had been sitting outside for two years, has a lot of rigor-mortis but the motor turns and it has a grass catcher and 42 inch snowblower. The owner wanted someone to make an offer, I directed several friends to it and no one went after it. That was almost a year ago. The guy called my house yesterday and said he was moving and it had to go. I got it for $200.00 and he says he has "other stuff" for it as far as attachments:D. Don't know much about these newfangled RBT's but for that price I'll learn. Pic's later.

Sure souds like a good deal, 16HP and hydrostatic, and the blower. Definately worth it, I just wish I could find a briggs up here to drop in the 410. Since the 10HP kohler has a bad knock and has maybe 20hrs on it since the rebuild?

Maxtorman, The reason RBT were added to FDT is because the ladies that were driving them were complaing about geting durt up their dress when working the tractors in the fields. { this should generate some good conversation ,,,,lol lol j/k}

Sorry Kirk, the FDT will stay with us for quite some time- I think Gail would kill me if I got rid of "her" tractor even if I wanted to sell it:D! I may get rid of the "enigma 707" though- I'm rapidly running out of space! Didn't hurt much when it landed in my lap Dutch, but it was a good hurt! Unfortunately it looks like I'm leaving for Aberdeen, MD late next month for extended police training until June so I wont get to do much until thats done[V]. Having it sit there is REALLY going to eat at me!

Im pretty sure RB's were added so you could keeep your feet. Besides, I have always been able to prevent the tractor from tipping even with them. Stick your foot out further, also, Whenever I get something stuck, Its stuck for a while. All those things people say about FDT's are no good for me. I still wouldnt mind one though:)

That is true only if you are not vertically challenged like some of us old guys are.
