Anyone Want A Super Sized Riding Mower On Steroids?


This is a big rider, from days past, an International Cub Cadet, like the schools and gold courses used to mow, and I do not use it now, so it is available for adoption. 4 cylinder, water cooled, hydraulic lift, turf tires, and a 60 inch cut. Mows ok, runs ok.....drives ok.

I love trades....interesting trades, nothing that eats, no wives, children, horses, or whatever. But if you need the biggest rider on the block, lets trade!

These things all shined up can go for $2500 or more, but this jewel is available for $1500, cash or trade.

I like the exercise from walking behind my 48" POS Lesco. Cool looking mower though.

Nope, just when mowing.

I always wanted one of these, and then got one, and mowed our vacant lots with it for a few years, but I have a Z Force (ztr) mower now, and this one isn't getting used. But I bet it will outlast the hydrostat ztr by decades.

Re: Anyone Want A Super Sized Riding Mower On Steroids?


screw that thing, after buying a zero turn no way I'd mow grass with any thing else.

I use my kubota to brush hog..

I have FEL for a low boy sitting out back.

Re: Anyone Want A Super Sized Riding Mower On Steroids?


Nope, just the 60 inch deck. This machine is a mower....they had 3 point attachments, and you can find parted out stuff on eBay to turn them into garden tractors. Even a snow blower I would guess. Used to see these on golf courses and around schools all the years I was growing up.

I have a John Deere model A, 1939 model, that my grandfather bought brand new. It is on my list of restoration projects.
