I'm new to lawn tractors, but have the opportunity to get one. One problem though, the engine is probably shot. I'm getting it from a widower, and she ran it without oil. I know it has one blown rod. It is a Simplicity 7119 with a deck and a snowblower attatchment. The engine is a Kohler KT19S. Her husband took very good care of it, but after he died last year, she drove it without adding oil. She told me I could have it for $200. I was just looking for some advice if this is something I should be getting myself into. I can't afford to get a new one and this would help with the brutal winters up north as well as cut my rather large yard. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
