Here is a very nice 1987 roper gtk-18 garden tractor for sale. This one has low hours and easy use.
It has an 18 horsepower horizontal shaft kohler opposed twin that starts right up and has plenty of power to do the work this machine needs to do. It is equipped with a 6 speed transaxle that has hi and low ranges which both work great. The tractor is in very good original condition with only some minor cosmetic defects but still very presentable as an item for a local small engine show. The seat on the tractor is original and still in great shape. The gauges all work and are accurate, the electric clutch work as it should (recently replaced), all the tires are in great original condition with little to no blemishes and no leaks at all. The 50 inch mowing deck is in great shape with no rot bends or flimsy repairs. It works well and mows nicely and quietly. It will however need a belt to drive the mower deck due the one that was on it when i bought it was to short and i have none to fit it. The only other thing of mention is that the throttle seems to go higher than normal when throttles all the way up.
Seems like a governor adjustment is needed. It is useable as is and runs very well. I love the tractor and i would keep it here but i need space and the roper takes up plenty of my garage. I will not deliver any further than that 120 mile radius. Thank you for viewing my listing and please be sure to check out my other listings for more great deals on small engine items and diecast.
