Well I'm old school. I would have had something like this instead of my cub, but, I needed something quick and really didn't have time to do alot of searching, **** I live outside richmond and had to go all the way to blacksburg,va. to get the cub brand new cause all the other lowes where sold out, Its been a good mower though, just wasn't made to tow heavy things, I have over 300 hours on the 24 horse briggs while most other folks only get about 60 max..lol funny thing is since brand new Its had two speeds wide open or stopped. Only thing I have done to it I did have to remove the engine and replace the case halve gasket other than that, its been a good mower, but thats all it is a mower.

You just bought a 35 year old tractor that you will hand down to your grand children. Great find and a really good price I might add.

Anyway I could install a 16 HP kohler in place of the 10 hp unit?

Yes you could certainly do that but there is no need to do so. That K241 you have in there will do the job very nicely. Plenty of power.

Sweet, nice score, and that machine can do 10 times what that Cub can do. :thThumbsU

One obsevation is the decals are wrong they can be ordered through Maple Hunter, and should look like this.

That 10hp will do a lot of work, as was said, no real reason to put a 16 in there.

Looks great, nice truck too. :thThumbsU

I did alot of work with it yesterday, Under a hard load it seems to struggle a bit. I have almost stalled it a couple of times...it doesn't smoke, and doesn't seem to use any oil, I used it almost all day yesterday.
