Re: Ariens YT12 inherited...
I have 3 YT tractors. One I bought new back in 1986 with snow blower and has been working hard for me all those years. I aquired another a few years later just so I wouldn't have to change back and forth from mower to snow blower. Then I found another I got for parts but ended up fixing it up to run even though I didn't need it. They are great machines and too bad Ariens stopped making them. Now Ariens has Husqvarna make 2 models for them and labeled Ariens. They just aren't the same quality and ruggedness although still a good value for just mowing.
