I found this on craigslist  . He wants $125 for it. I get paid on the 12th and I might just go pick it up! What do y'all think ?

Any idea on what this is?  00k0k_10

The ad reads as follows : was in my dads garage for years. I,m sure it needs work, maybe use it for parts. mower has no belt or blades, is loose from the tractor. may run with little effort, I don't know! Sold as is. jerry

EDIT: I looked on Google for a Hesston frontrunner 200 and I can't find ANYTHING about this thing. Not sure if they are rare or this dude does not know the brand / model

Alright so I've been talking to the dude back and forth with emails. It belonged to his father who has passed. His dad was a "pack rat" who collected many sears tractors. He told me that it is an kohler hp unknown horiz twin gas and it turns it is not froze. Look at the pictures of this thing! Any idea on what this is?  Unname10
Any idea on what this is?  Unname12

I am going to ask him about the sears / any other mowers he might have up for sale

He has 5 or 6 sears for parts and 1 with an onan twin on it. $100 for that.

He told me $175 for both. He has not posted the sears on CL yet so he has no offers on it

I have a few questions I am wondering if you guys could tell me if you know

-Model of the sears
- Does the engine look like it is all there on the frontrunner?

I did more research after the dude told me that he knows it as a hesston frontrunner 200. He sent me this picture saying that this is the only identification he could find. and I still can not find anything that looks like it. All of them are 4 wheels and this one is 3 wheels. That sets something off in my head thinking it is rare or not many made. What do you think ? Any idea on what this is?  Unname13

It could be one of those special ones that are made for golf courses or something. If the motor is stock you may be able to find a year on the model# of the motor. Then, find the year the machine was made.

My main goal is to purchase the Front runner. From what I have talked to him about it has sat inside a garage for like 9 years and was his dads pride and joy, Kind of upsetting to see him sell it this cheap. The last time it ran was 3-5 years ago and other then the belts and blades most of it it there. I don't think I would keep the deck since my lawn is gated and that would not fit in the gate. Looking at the pictures hes sent me it does not appear to be in that bad of shape other then cosmetic. I am currently trying to work on a price with him and I am going to see if he will deliver otherwise I have to hire my friend to haul it home.

How did you come up with 400 miles apart?
Trust me I have the tractors
Well to tell the truth Just the sears ss/16
Started restoration today
The Hesston wasn't worth my time
it looks good in the pics but ruff doesn't begin to
describe it

There is a chance that he DID buy them, The ad is no longer on CL.

But how did you know to come to THIS forum ?
