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.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:.
Is the 3 speed a GT?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.
I hear you loud n clear hankll. :fing32: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.
