That looks in really good shape hankll, fine example of a 600 series or "square nose" as we Murray guys say.

I called him about it, and had my wife not decided we were going Christmas shopping, I would have run over to look at it. He said he was getting rid of it because he bought a new Huskee 25hp/50" cut rider from TSC......I didn't say a thing! I was nice. If I get a chance based on his schedule, I'll try again during the week.

This must be a new listing, or I missed it on my Friday Searchtempest Murray search. I know pics hide a lot, especially low res. CL ones, but that Square nose looks to be in really nice shape. The first tell tale sign someone respected the thing is that the discharge chute is still on there. If I were buying that for myself and it looked as nice in person as in the pics and all was well with the mechanicals, up north where I am $350-$400 to me would be a good deal.

I am accused of pricing these machines on the high side, and I suppose I do, but buy something as capable as that Murray and you are at $3,000.00 new. If someone like one of us Murray guys gets their hands on that GT it will still be cutting grass for another couple decades. The new orange one :dunno:.

yep, Dec 2nd. You are absolutely right, and it's not likely to happen with his new Huskee. And the shute deflector jumped out to me also. He said he wanted to not start it until prospective buyer came to look at it. He says engine is tight and doesn't smoke even from a cold start, with a puff pf smoke, you'd expect from an older engine.

I don't wanna highjack thread but, I have a Murrray delima. I have a 18hp tractor like the one above, another older one that has a 3 speed iron axle 18hp. I am needing to thin the heard and can only keep one. I have a sleeve hitch that looks like it would go on either one, but is on the three speed now. Right now I am leaning toward keeping the 3 speed, and letting the square nose go.

Is the 3 speed a GT?

No I don't have pics at this time. But the square nose is just like the one pictured above. The older one looks a lot like that Sears of your's, excet red with a twin. I am sure you have seen these before as well. I have a huge tarp that they all need to fit under and I have a couple to many now. I have a couple of Murray LT's that are going too. One is a newer wide body, and a red frame 12hp? I will probably just scrap them.

Any updates hankll? I found the ad, price seems fair if the condition proves to be good, up here in New York anyway. Are you looking to flip it or keep it?

No, I'm not going to get it.....I've just got too many already that need some attention. Plus I have some engine work on my Freebie Murray to get done and I have yet to fix the hood. I really need to get the ones I've got up and going and ready for sale in the spring.

I'm off today (grumble) so if he were home, I'd still maybe go look at it, but weather guru's are talking snow flurries today. Nah, think I'll just crank up the fireplace.
