Penn State Puller!
I've continued my quest for a new mower, hopefully one that will replace my LA150. Someone directed me to a craigslist listing about 15 minutes down the road from my house. It's a 1981 314 with a "new" shortblock (I would assume Kohler?) motor in it, repainted, 46" deck, and 317 taillights. New battery and belts. It's $750 too, which is pretty awesome. I like the 314's, as they're about as close as I can get if I don't buy a 318 at some point. I may consider trading in my LA150, hopefully I can get over $750 for it. I'd like to act as soon as possible before another thing breaks on it, most likely going to be the transaxle. Any 314 owners out there? Are these nice tractors? My grandfather will be happy I bought something with a shaft drive and a Kohler, not a Kawasaki, and I like this tractor, so I think it may be a deal.
