Found a 1973 140 H3 today
Guy wants $700 ish
Has 2 tillers ..1 good with new chain and 1 for parts.
Mower deck that is Solid with newer looking blades and possibly spindles or else it was just never used much at all. It is the BELT driven one!
Theres a front blade but I don't think its for it.
Has new starter.
Seems like there is something else...besides cobwebs. Turns over ,was out of gas.
They used till He bought His 1023R last year.
ohh yea..Calcium filled rears ( in tubes)
About a turn of slop in the steering.
Looking to get this for my nephew as a stepping stone to something bigger.
The more I read about these the more I like them.
Am I an Idiot to even consider this or is it a decent solution to replace a junk craftsman Rider??
Give me your thoughts good or bad...I want a nice mix people!
Thanks ..Dan in Oregon
