Hello there. I am new to the forum as well as the Garden Tractor world. I have found two GT's for sale in my area (seems to be a very reasonable price $100.00 each) and I have not seen them yet in person, however, I have a few pictures. From the pictures and the Craigslist description "Does not run". I have emailed the guy for more pictures and info, production year, mower deck shape, manuals, why did it quit running, leaks, is the engine seized up, what shape the transaxle are in, has it been rebuilt before, or has it been parted out, etc... Here is all of the info I have about them so far. One is a Simplicty Sovereign 3416H and the other is a Ingersoll 224. Neither run (which should not be a problem, I hope. I have rebuilt a few motorcycle engines and old riding mower engines when I was younger and my brother just completed his tech school small engine repair. We are both new to GT'S, however; I think we can figure out how to get either one, or both, running with the help of this forum, online research, and our somewhat well supplied tool inventory). I am expecting that both will need quite a bit of work, a fair amount of $$$ and plenty of time, but I think either one or both would be great projects to work on this coming winter and hopefully have it running by next spring. The idea behind getting one is to run a Tiller for the wifes garden, my mother inlaws garden, pull a small trailer sprayer, a small box blade for the long gravel driveway at my inlaws house. I wanted to post this and see what advice I could receive before I go check them out and which tractor would be best suited for the tasks at hand. Both have the mower decks, and neither one comes with attachments, which will be another time consuming project of trying to find some attachments these GT'S can operate.
