For light tractors, I've always had respect for Murray. Easy as pie to work on and very comfortable. If the grille is still in good shape don't throw it away. They are almost impossible to find unbroken and sell for decent money.
It's always irked me that Case doesn't have greasable mandrels yet Murray does.
I was meaning to post these in the Murray forum too, but here is a good look.
I have nothing but good things to say about the old Murray. I have had a few duds, but this one has been a hard worker and dependable going on 15 years old.
She was free from my Dad who thinks mowers only last 5 years at best. He's rough on equipment. He never figured on me taking care of it as well as I have.
Bought my case so I could eventually retire the Murray, but that may not be for a while.
Really impressed with the I/C 16 twin.
I know I could have done a better job scrubbing the deck, but it was getting
dark and I was kinda slacking.
outside in the leaves. Getting to be that time again...
Parked safe and sound in the garden shed....
I think it looks much more like a tractor with the hood off. I may wire up some headights on the muffler guard. Topless. I dig it.
