Sorry to start another thread, but the 7200 is finally in my possession! I tossed a new battery into it, started it up and drove it right onto my trailer. I'm feel like a little kid with this machine and I cannot wait to rip around in it!

Couple minor discrepancies....
- most of the rubber hydraulic lines are weathered and worn
- battery tray rotted
- seat sucks
- when the clutch is engaged and I shift into gear there is some minor grinding and hesitation before it accelerates. Manual says adjustments have to be made and it should be good to go after that.
- fluids are junk and need to be flushed out and replaced

As most of you can see the tractor is solid and the attachments alone are worth some pretty good money. The machine was never used alot, just for planting shrubs and making new lawns which was not an everyday operation for my friend. The tractor needs some TLC, but for $2500 total, I am not going to ***** one bit about my buy. These look to be very easy to work on, and parts do not seem too pricey so things should go pretty smooth! I have all the manuals and receipts, but they are very old, so if anyone has any good advice on what to use, what not to use, and any other tips on maintenance practices to keep this machine tip top would be greatly appreciated.

Enough words and here are some pictures:

I think it will be! I'm going to call the local dealer tomorrow to get all new filters, radiator cap, seat, new lines for the bucket, and all new fluids. I plan on dumping a few hundred into the tractor off the bat because those are all essentials to keep the tractor running healthy.

Did you ever do anything with this?? As for the hydraulic lines I go to the local Taylor Rental and they make the lines for me. Alot cheaper than the dealer any hydraulic shop should be able to do it. My tractor has been great the only problems I have had is old rotted hydro lines also. Just picked up a 4' snowblower I was going to mount on the front for the winter but not having any luck finding a front PTO setup.
