Starts and mows very good. Runs good too but it needs a drive adjustment. I believe this was made in 1998 with a 36" twin blade deck. It's zero turn and has the old style mechanical z drive... not hydraulic. The mechanical Dixon transaxles are much cheaper and easier to work on and the "cones" last for 20 plus years. Engine starts right up with no smoke and runs idles nice.The z drive does go well in all directions it's just needs adjustment to run well. Hills are tricky with it as it is now. New chains all around. It has a "custom" safe n secure Craftsman seat. Real comfy ;)Issues....
slight bend in right axle wheel/sprocket wobble a bit. Maybe that is why the chain pops off when torqued hard.
Older tires... pretty dry but do hold air (one front has tiny pin hole leaks.... fix a flat should do.
Few flaws and cracks in body work... 3 of them. All in close up images.
Some slight surface rust peeling in spots. Nothing major. Deck is very sound and strong.
I few missing teeth in starter flywheel. Only once have I had to many turn the motor (grill on top) to get teeth to engage for starting. But when I did it was simple n easy. Turn it 2" done start.Come take it for a spin ;)
