This is a craftsman 4-speed 11hp geared tractor.
It's the one that has the cherry bomb muffler with a baffle and supertrapp exhaust.
#!&* happens so we got a stay-at-home order that expires tomorrow night for me.
Part of my home time was spent mounting the mower deck and building a mini-ROPS that will mostly keep me from falling over backwards in the path of the mower.
It cut grass!  But the grass is growing very slowly and I had cut it recently with the small Lawn Boy mower.
I also covered the torn vinyl seat with strips of new gray duct tape.
I also took the 5 speed transaxle out and put the repaired 4 speed back in.
That's the one I welded the pinion on after the clip disintegrated near the differential.
I drove several laps around the yard and it did ok.
The blue tarp keeps the rain off the motor area when the tractor isn't being used.
I have material for the hood area but time has run out.
This tractor cost $50 on Craigs List but it wasn't in good shape at the time.Tour1's 88 Craftsman 20200512
