    Hey GT, I've got a question.
    I've got a Sears SS12 model 917-25510 and by your manuals page that is a 1968 Super 12 (SS12) are there different models of the 12 in that year? The reason I ask is that I have found a mower and want to make sure I have the right brackets already on the tractor. I have added pictures to my post titled Need Some Help with SS12, also on that post is the model number of the mower.

    Well the old girl may get another chance, the Husq GT52XLS/Kohler KT745 is good for ~45 minutes mowing then acts like it's not getting fuel. Dealer says 'not the fuel pump', we'll have to get it in to look at it. I'm pretty PO'd $1000 +/- engine work on the OH140 is looking pretty fair right now.

    Below is a brief inventory:
    Sears Hydro-Trac Chassis AYP-Roper 917.25400 sn 1507
    Sears Hydro-Trac Engine Tech OH140
    Sears Hydro-Trac Sundstrand Hydrogear 9C 2054 (spare unit complete)
    Sears 42 917.253150 /mule, brackets and belt
    Sears 48 917.253161 /mule, brackets and belt
    Sears 14 moldboard plow 917.253020
    Sears Snow blower 917.251820

    Everything was in daily operating condition when last used. In addition an extra operational mule drive, spare mower deck mandrels, bearings, grease cups, blades, belts, pto cover and brackets, tie-rod ends, steering gear, seat spring, tire chains, etc. etc.

    I was thinking $1000 but the Husq hassle may decide it.

    Hi James, I posted about parting with my HydroTrac and your comments gave me much to think about. I do love the old girl but I think that hobby, one I spent almost 30 years on, has run it's course. Time to move on.

    Agreed, I want it to go to someone who can and will appreciate the tractor. I've gotten a little interest locally but I'm really at a loss to put a value on the stuff I've collected. Your dating makes sense. The first owner said he thought it was a '67 so that's what I ran with.

    I'm not intending on getting rich off this stuff, in fact I don't feel the old girl owes me anything as it served me well for almost 30 years, but I really don't want to get taken advantage of. I'd just like to have a little better idea of what a reasonable value range would be.

    Too bad you're so far away or I could make a donation to your addiction, nice line up you have going there. You do need an orange Hydro.

    I do appreciate any knowledge you're willing to share.
    Regards, Roger

    I posted a question on the attachment forum regarding he difference between a Sears cart and a Craftsman cart. Can you look over that post and give me some advice?
