I picked up an 8453 tonight, it came with all its original accessories. Its got some features that I've not seen before. Heavy duty exoskeleton bag, hub nut rear wheel. Its lighter than an M. I purchased it from a friend and original owner, it was purchased new in 1983 for just shy of $900. I also got some spare parts, reciepts, manual, and a service manual. He claim it will make leaves disappear. He also threw in this old mulcher, Its probly a decent old mower, I don't know what I'll do with it yet.
