Im thinking of lifting it 2 or 3 feet maybe even 4. its a HUGE and BUFF tractor. too bad they still dont make em like this any more. Wont be able to do anything to it for at least 3 weeks cause im going to norway :S but who nows maybe il get some great ideas there!

Have fun in Norway Arild! Im away upto Bute today.

That is a seriously stout mower. What kind of transaxle does it have, any pics of it?

Nice machine- looks like a 3 speed with a heavy duty trans. The twin is a definite plus. Should be fairly easy to lift.

Id keep it just for the running twin and beefy trans/large rear tires - selling the deck alone ( since it mows) would be worth $300 - craftsman deck mandrels new go for $100 each - lil cleaning and paint and could sell it easy.

I really dont know what to do with it. Im really tempted to lift it a couple feet and paint her a general lee style or restor and sell it. cause I love that its a twin and i also really want a nother mudder for when dynamarkpickup comes over. How much do you guys guess i could sell this beast after a small restoration |(paint, fully fonctional, everything working, engine tune up...)?

Sounds about right - if plain single RER's go for $600 down here- that should be worth $600 and up.

Eventually for my 86 GTII i want to get a front plow blade and sleeve hitch for the back - just in case i ever want to sell it , itll be worth quite a bit more.

I'd personally keep it and mud with it. Those dont surface all that often either. Unless you can find another garden tractor (with the 1" axles) to replace it I'd definatly keep it!
