If you want a solid, no nonsense garden tractor, look for a wheel horse. The front one is a 1968 built out of 2 junkers for about $400 23 years ago,must have a million hours on it by now,the next one is a 1966,was given to me, put a new motor on it 30 years ago and it still works. The 518 by the shed I gave $700 for about 12 years ago,put 800 hrs on it with just normal maintenance. The 520 in back left was the real deal $495 with nice 4 foot mower, snow blower and blade. needed head gaskets.
