I just happen to notice a Deere model 88 rider sittin next to an old outbuilding in overgrown weeds and I was just curious if it may be a sought after item or really worth the time and money to restore . It looks similar to the 68 model rider . But I haven't found much info on this model 88 . Can anyone shed some light on this particular rider mower , like what years they built them? I did see it had a briggs engine in it . Would this be an original engine ? Next time I get that way I'm going to get the numbers off of it and try some more research on it . But I thought in the meantime I'd check here first . There is a whole lot of knowledge here I know so hopefully someone can have some info . It looks to be in pretty fair condition . I don't know if it runs or not but I don't think that would be much of a problem . I'm hoping to hear some good news here .
