It did come with a cutting deck.. That one is off my 74 112.. It came with a new seat and new battery.. and a few new parts on it. Then his wife said to him after tuning it up.. Why not buy a new one.

Nice!!:fing32:

How about more details on the "trip report"? Wasn't there a road trip involved here?

Every time I see one of these, I know I will have to get one someday. There is just something about them....

Certainly is pretty, man! And in good shape! I'd been WONDERING how long it was gonna be before you let folks know about this one! I wasn't sayin' anything in case you'd gotten it home and some thing bad had happened.... (eg "You take that back RIGHT NOW!", or "WTH, I've just hauled a CARDBOARD CUTOUT 500 miles!!! Where's my TRACTOR?!?").

Now we just need some comparison pics of you on IT, and you on the 60... To see which one looks more like it fits you! :thThumbsU

Yes there was a road trip.. There where other things (some for my wife) that i had to pick up along the way.. But the 140 was the farthest away.. worked out to a tad over 1000 miles round trip. so 225 to 250 in fuel. I found a few other items along the way. I am now waiting to hear back from these guys..

Nice find Gerald. How about a Thread on what you are doing to the 317. I got one and am trying to soak up all the info I can about them. :fing32:

Great score, even if you had to do some driving to get it.

I just hauled three pick up loads to the dump. making room for more tools. i have a set of sheet metal rollers and a bender that needs to find space. :dunno: That pile of steel and stack of plywood in the corner is finding a new home very soon..
