I started looking around about 2 months ago for a replacement riding mower. My Murray Select LT Widebody that I picked up off CL about 7 years ago owed me nothing and I was ready to move on to a hydrostatic.
After watching CL for a few weeks I came across a Cub 2135 with 500 hrs that needed some clean up & maintenance but had an engine that seemed strong and hydrostatic that was strong so I picked it up and started the re-hab. Thank you to Windyhill for some advice during the process. Got it running real good and cut the grass with it and was very satisfied even though it was a little smaller deck than the Murray and HP was a little less. I am set for another 10 years or so I thought!!
Anywhooooo.....Early last week I happened to click on the search tempest bookmark I have with the intention of trolling for a coal stoker to work on this summer for resell by fall. It still had the search data for mowers and up pops this sweet looking 2155.......uh-oh......42" cut like the Murray, more HP than the 2135......must resist urge.....
I successfully avoided it for a couple days but looked again on Friday and it was still there......I had to call......dang, it's still available......went to look at it on Sat morning and saw it was as nice in person as the pics indicated.......even better condition than the 2135, about half the hours, all maintenance records, original receipt and user manual, absolutely nothing needs to be done to it......
.....brought it home since I didn't want the trailer to come back empty! This thing runs and cuts fantastic!! So now I am certainly set for another 15 years!!
So now I have the Murray and the Cub 2135 up for sale. This accumulating of tractors must be the summer version of accumulating coal stoves in winter.
Gotta get back my play money and clear out space in the garage for that stoker project I haven't found yet! And I did clear out those CL search fields of all mower data so this won't happen again........I hope!
