Picked up a relative of mines John Deere LA105 that the deck is pretty much non existent, dead battery, runs pretty good, hard to shift transmission makes lots of noise, and the brakes dont work :D

I am fixing it up and turning it into a mini tractor to use it to haul my cart around to pick up branches, mulch, dirt etc.

I just touched it and it collapsed!


Pulled out the deck and put it for scrap. Notice hole that I made is now even bigger.

Powering it is a Briggs 19hp intek, a couple more HP than my old Troybilt.


All cleaned up.

Almost looks “new” cough cough :P


It has a dana 5 speed geared transmission! I read that these things eat input shaft bearings, so im pretty sure the bearings are gone. I’ll do a rebuild when the weather gets cooler.

My old Pony. I kept it like new, but its all worn out and cant handle the huge yard. Engine runs like new and no rust! Sold it to someone that needs a mower.


My new John Deere riding mower for my new property for those that haven’t seen my previous post.

It’s a E130 V-twin 42 inch with a push bar and rear fenders!
