My grandfather bought a 1973 Cub Cadet hydro with a brand new 12 hp Kohler engine for $60 it had a problem with the pump on the trans, but we had another trans layin' around from a '72 109, so I took the pulley system off and changed the trans set the points and adjusted the carb. and it's nice.
It came with a tiller and a snow plow. The plow is great for spreading gravel, but I don't get much snow and the tiller was hard to find a belt for but we found one. It's ax144 if wondering. I like to explore a bucket to put on the front 'cause it also has a rear out-drive so you could hook up a hydraulic pump back there all in all I'd say it's a 10.
