    It looks like a cross between a snowmobile and a tractor- its cool looking. A couple years back i had the chance to buy a pair of liquid cooled honda tractors- one was for parts, the other sort of ran ( needed a starter motor) - the guy only wanted $200 for both of them- unfortunately my financial advisor ( my wife) wouldnt let me get them.

    The 'unwritten' rule is anything over $100 i have to ask her first - a couple years ago i bot 4 tractors up the street for $350, they all needed alot of work but 2 were GT craftsmans, one was a LT11 craftsman and one was a 12HP MTD- i figured just for the heavy duty GT's the price would be worth it.

    I ended up using the MTD for parts ( motor ran), im rebuilding the LT11 ( motor runs also) , the GTII i rebuilt and it runs excellent ( those motors running and the running GT make it worth it) - however the other GT 6000 actually turned into a parts tractor for my GTII ( the GT6000's deck was mint, but the 20HP onan isnt running yet).

    Ive seen plain motors on craigslist sell for $200 alone - twin cylenders are posted for way more.
