R72. Found it on craigslist for $150. This was day one with it, but it fires right up, cosmetically looks real nice (decent recent paint job) and the deck is solid with no holes. The only issue is steering. Gear shaft isn't meshing underneath. I mowed with it today and I can make the steering work if I pull up on the wheel. Will probably need to replace the gearing because it is showing some wear. But overall I'm pretty happy and honestly kind of amazed at how rugged this thing was built. But if anyone can point me in the direction of a reasonably priced tech manual it would be much appreciated. Can't seem to find one for under $80 on Ebay. Jim
From southern Maine, Greater Portland area. Yeah I wasn't aware of the introductory post or my name would probably be different. Every other name I was typing in was already taken. Not trying to offend anyone, just looking to talk tractors/riders.
