The bad news is the seller's father passed. His father was the second owner and owned the Landlord for 20+ years and everywhere you look you see recent maintenance and it runs great. Tractor was at the deceased house, which is also very nice and very well kept. The asking price was $400, which I was delighted to pay. Doesn't that qualify me more for Interpol or UN sanctions or something? :O

Replaced the seat and eyebrow fenders and hardware with restored stuff I had on hand. Lost the tail lights. Too funky. Dang, the server seems to be locked up, can't download the pics. Will try later.

The deck is something strange. Has a 2.5" pulley instead of a 4" which means it is overspeeding:


The blades are modded:


The deck has a rubber baby buggy bumper on the leading edge:


The PO passed away and these modded blades were hardly used:


This is supposed to be a '66 deck and all the spindles are sealed bearing with no zerk fittings. They are also totally silent with no bearing noise so that's good. This was set up for one of those vacs with, like, a 5 horse Briggs on the vac trailer. The outlet of the deck is all modded up for a vac connection. There is no outside pulley for a rear mule drive (no problem, I have a spare pulley and mule drive) so this was a self powered aftermarket vac. I think the deck will tend to clog if I don't remove the mods to attach the vac as the deck outlet is severely restricted. May have to remove some mods but other than that the deck is in top shape.

Remember, the zerk fittings on the spindles were not there to lube the bearings, the bearings were sealed parts. The grease fittings can be added to fill the cavity with grease to keep out water. It looks like the POs were attempting to make a cheaper vac system work more efficiently by adding all those mods. That's a nice looking "lightly used" snowblower.:D
