This has been my workhorse for mowing for the last 15 years. I used it the first few seasons to plow snow until I wore out my elbow/shoulder and got a plow for my truck.

Originally purchased new in 1993. I bought it in 1994. Still very original.

Sheet metal is all straight and solid w/some very minor surface rust (worst rust can be seen on underside of hood/grille in picture).

Paint is a bit faded but good original. Decals are excellent original.

Hydrostatic Transmission is and always has been perfect, except the disengagement lever under the seat is stuck in the engaged position.

Engine loses power after warming up. I think it is carb but no guarantees.

Headlights do not work, slight crack in each visible on back side of lamps.

Mower Deck is noisy/ready for spindles and blades. Otherwise in very good condition.

A vane on the blower fan blade is bent. I am including a brand new fan blade (correct Simplicity part).

New turf tires about 2 years ago. Left rear has a slow leak (wheel). Tube to remedy wheel leak included but not installed.
