When it arrived, I unpalleted it (the crate was scrap) and snapped these pictures:

The seat, rear battery box, and fenders were disassembled.There was some upholstery on the seat back, but that bottom would NOT be comfortable!

The interior of the front compartment didnít look too promising, though everything was there.

image004.jpg

I donít think thatís supposed to hang loose like thatÖ

image005.jpg

That one either.

The lower edge rust on the front panels wasnít too bad, but they would have to come off to fix the frame, and they were rusted solid.

The frontÖ

And a closeup of the bumper.Yes, it has a lift, but the strap isnít visible here.

The other side was a little worse.

The dash looks more dirty than corroded.

Well, OK, the dash panel is corroded, as is the throttle assembly.

I donít know about the support arms or the casters.The casters are bent, and the arms seem to be, also.

New (or rebuilt) mower motors!

No project would be complete without a few miscellaneous parts!

The deck.As you will see, itís pretty bad, but all there.

Thatís the remnant of the crate in the foreground, and the dissolving blocker plate on the deck.Itís the only part that was actually rusted through.

The back end was pre-disassembled.

The deck support arm pegs were the worst point of rust on the frame.
