Well, yeah, I prefer a horizontal engine on a real tractor, but this is primarily a lawn mower and a good one at that. When you look at other ones of its type, it clearly comes out at the top of the heap.99flhr said:Other then being old, cranky and set in my ways I can`t explain my general dislike for tractors with vertical crankshafts. Certainly works in my zero & brush cutter, makes a lot sense from a packaging and power transmission standpoint, but.. I just don`t get the same vibe.
Is it just me? :???: :???:

Now I've got an LT....
My buddy picked it up and notified me when my "relic" was safe at his barn.
Dont know when Ill get to it, but he's got the space, so it might be a while
Check the "album" button :thumbup:
I almost bought a 107 at an auction... I ran it up to $135.00 and backed off....... stupid stupid stupid, it sold for $140.00 THANKS FOR THE COMPLIMENTS!!!!tanandorange said:Congrats on your new purchase Old Abe. In 2002, when I first got a computer, it seemed I was the only one on any of these forums who had a 1XX LT in their stable. I'm glad to see a growing interest in these once-overlooked machines, as they were one of the last that size to actually be built to last. You should see Dave Beiter's daughter's 108, if that doesn't inspire you nothing will. It's almost too pretty to use, and is featured on the 108 T-shirt by Vintage Iron. If i ever stumble onto a 107 or 117 cheap enough I might have to get my wife a "backup" for her 108. Not that it's ever needed a backup, but seems like a strong selling point when negotiating with the "Purchasing Manager" :lol:
