I have just stumbled upon a cushman frontline rear steer tractor with a 60inch deck, and a 20hp Mitsubishi diesel engine.
the engine needs work and the tractor is not running.
the owner is selling it for 200$
this area of tractors I know nothing about, but the price seems very attractive!
I originally planned on pulling the diesel for other uses, but if I can get it running why take it out of the cushman.
cushman is part of Jacobsen/Ransomes
so im assuming parts are good to go.
I looked at one of these a while ago, and from the research I did at the time, I found that engine parts were extremely difficult to find, and extremely pricey IF you could find them. If everything else is in good working order, and you plan to re-power with another engine, it may not be a bad deal.
