Got this tractor for free on roadside in Oct. 2011, the owner said it didn't start or cut well, but he had used it until that spring plowing snow. So me and my friend brought it home, put a new solenoid and battery in and it fired right up, ran great. Still had fresh oil and gas, all clean. The reason it didn't cut- blades were on upside down and cut short to prevent them from hitting, because they were installed improperly. New blades fixed all. Made a somewhat home-made 3 point for it last spring, and modified a regular walk-behind tiller to attach to the hitch. After 2 years of using it for all my yardwork I tore it down and gave it a new paint job and some tune ups.
