Thumbs up 1970 Sears Custom 8XL (New Addition)

Put the new truck to use today again and found this custom with deck and plow.



I think the deck is magnesium.



the plow...



And it came with all the manuals!



This was originally owned by a fellow in PA but was brought down here to the sunshine state where I have now acquired it. It will need a little TLC but overall a fairly complete machine.
Not sure if they are the originals or replaced at some point but all the tires appear to be originals or NOS at some point as they are all branded Sears and are in unusually great condition.

Don't expect to see anything happen fast.... LOL, just lining up the retirement projects

Very nice! Great to live in a climate like that where you don't have to worry about rust. That looks to be a very clean deck.

You'll be glad you have that plow when the next storm hits!

I don't have to worry about the salt from the roads but I do have the salt air and humid climate to contend with... Remember, this came from PA, LOL
It seems like all the nice old tractor/mowers I ever find seem to be brought down from up north. The ones that are local are unfortunately left outside covered in leaves and moisture and rot away, then the owner wants to sell it for a fortune
