It's a GT for sure. Built 1987-1991.

There was a 30 inch mechanical tiller available., as well as a 42" snowblower.

The only undesirable feature in my opinion was that parking brake style mechanical lift on the fender.

Yep,
The no/no-go criteria is whether it rated for ground engaging capability.

Before you write that check, how much are you spending? What does it look like? Have you checked on how much the optional PTO and tiller run?

Not for one in bad condition, seats can run up there in price, I would offer them 550 or 575, because the seat will cost about 50, I would suggest for the seat go to a dealer or your local TSC. Not sure about attachments though, I am more of a sears guy myself, I am geting a Custom 10xl tomorrow. I dont mean to take over the thread...

I couldn't say without seeing it. You need to hear it run and drive it as well.

this is a 4 year production run tractor, so parts and accessories will be fewer, though the same accessories fit other models. Do you know which models implements you need? Do you know which other models tractors used the same implements?

This is the kind of stuff you need to know before you make a decision.
