Hi I just joined this site in search for more information on a tractor I just purchased.

I live just southeast of Pittsburgh, PA.

I purchased an older model Craftsman, model 917.255912, 18hp twin with 6-speed hi/low gear box. The tractor is completely rust free and runs good, but has a few issues I need to work out so that's why I'm here.

I plan to put up some pictures today.

We have plenty of grass here, but I didn't buy the tractor for that. I bought it for snow removal. It came with weights, chains, and a plow as well.

Brett, you're in Greensburg? I'm in North Huntingdon, actually heading out to Sears in greensburg in a little while here for some stuff for the tractor.

Welcome and good luck with the tractor. Sounds like a good 'un. Do you have a plow or snowblower for it, or is that what you're going to Sears to buy ? No matter which you have / get, I'd recommend getting a cab of some sort. :goodl:

Small world, I have a camp in Lantz Corners. :) I either go to Kane or Mt Jewett for supplies when I'm there.

very nice for the year, i have a 87 and 89 Sears Craftsman II that look like that but are not that nice. plow looks like the smaller one with a different setup then what i have on mine.
I'm not too far from you, over here in Indiana County about 30 miles from Greensburg. one of issues these machines have is picking up crud in carb and it will cause a lean condition or starving for fuel so watch for that.
you can PM me with questions on these, they are a good machine that will take a lot of use, don't be afraid to put weights on it they will take it.
