    Cushman, The Other Green Machine

    Well guys, its safe to say I have a problem with craigslist. Came across a 1999 Cushman Turf-Truckster (model:898652) and brought it home... The seller claims he was selling it for his brother who moved out of state before replacing the starter - starter is currently missing. I did manage to move it while in gear so the engine seems to turn which is a good sign. This weekend I'm debating having my wife drag me down the driveway with the 1025R to see if I can turn it over before investing more money in a starter. Not to say I'd part it out if it turns out to be more than just a starter. If anyone knows anything about the trucksters or knows of a starter for <$175 let me know.

    It also needs new tires all the way around - fronts are 20x10-10 and rears are 24x13-12. It seems like I could probably add at least an inch of ground clearance before the tires would come close to being problematic. Anyone have any thoughts?

    And yes, I'll be taking pictures soon.

    I'd need to see photos to offer much, I can't recognize it by model number. I've worked on more Cushmans than I can count, but mostly the little industrial carts. They're great little machines and can bring a fair price.

    There's one for sale not far from me with a full cab and tracks. I don't know what they're asking for it, or what I would ever do with it but it sure looks neat.

    "Only" 900 hours too.

    One of the first projects I do will be coming up with a way to mount a receiver hitch in the front so I can keep a winch up front.. and move it to the back when needed.

    I may seriously have a problem with CL.. just came across a guy looking to trade a Honda quad for a garden tractor. Guess I may finally get rid of the "tractor" I used before getting the 1025R.

    Yes sir.. unfortunately the original starter for my model was discontinued and a new one took its place. Since all of the originals were junk it seems to be hard to come buy a used working one... old and new designs. That said I just ordered one from Robert's and Son, for $200
