I bought one a few years ago, wonderful tractor.
Was a little hard to start if it wasn't used for a couple days, or when cool out.
Once it was run, it started like a champ the rest of the day.
New battery cable and starter did wonders for it, can sit in the shed 3 weeks and will fire right up. It still doesn't like cold, but its like a different machine, the old starter was slowing down and not enough oomph.
