Flathead opposed in a Lowes chassis, not bad. Id still try to talk him down to $100, but you dont see too many Lowes badges out there anymore since they mainly sell John Deere and Ariens.

Nice tractor, love that engine, I want it on mine Very Happy
Try and get him down to $100 like others have said but id still pay $150 for it. That engine is worth quite a bit on it's own.

Too expensive. Those engines are AMAZING, but I got two from my local dump for $0.

In these parts, a hundred is a fair price for that.

I guess it depends on how much you want it.

I've gotten equivalents for free, but I've also dropped 200, plus trailer rental for a classic. My RER John Deeres were freebies.

I paid 250 for my small Ford delivered to my driveway.

Up here its rare and worth it.

Down south, they are probably a dime a dozen

True that, I'd pay 250$ for that easily if I was close enough to pick it up.

If you live in snow country, wait til spring. That's when all the homeowners get out thier mowers from hibernation, and decide its time for a new one. On the other hand, it's probably always mowing season down south. I call it "dumping season" look foreward to it every year. Razz

Thanks for all the input guys, as soon as my kart chassis sells, I'll get a trailer and I'll pick it up
