Bought my first boxer powered vehicle for an absolutely ridiculous deal.

Bought this amazing vintage 17hp kohler boxer twin powered Deutz-Allis 917H tractor that features Hydrostatic drive, front, mid, and rear PTO & hydraulic lift. It also came with a 48" mower deck and a roto tiller attachment. I got all this INCLUDING DELIVERY!!! for $100 bucks at a yard sale.

The tractor hadn’t been started in over 5 years. We hooked up the booster cables and it fired right up no smoke no nothing. The hydrostatic drive needs a bit of work but the motor is very strong.

I have absolutely no need for it since my yard is way too small to even use the mower. But the price was too good to pass up. I might just put a blade on the front and use it to push some snow around.

I also bought a vintage 60's CCM bike from the same guy for $15 bucks. The bike is mint. I pumped up the tires and lubed the chain and it’s honestly as good as new.
