I did notice one other thing... the fan for the hydro that is one the driveshaft is missing two blades. That doesn't look like a whole lot of fun to replace.
Glad to hear I am not the only one in the freezer. The coveralls have even been dug out.
Here in Western Illinois, it is suppose to be in the teens tonight, it's a little early for that @#$%^&*
I think the exhaust is different on the GT18, appears to be routed out the upper right hood. The 1720 are a pair of pancakes, dual exhaust!!
I was just looking at the spec sheet again and noticed that it is page 1 of 10.... is this from a manual? Where might I get a copy of it if it is?Sorry could not read the numbers on the posted picture. Anyway you have a keeper especially if it has the optional rear pto. Has it got the 60" or the 48" deck. Either should work fine. I have had the 60" under the 16 in tall thick grass you just move slower.
Anyway here is the spec. sheet.
