Found a Dexta on craigslist not far from me, figure I'll go look at it in a couple days, if it hasn't sold. I've bought enough tractors to know the usual things to check, just wondering if there's anything specific to the Dexta to look for? Thanks.

shift the tranny wrong, not in a perfect H pattern, and if worn, it will jam. Take a 1/2 wrench or socket, remove the shifter, align the gears and from then on, use perfect H shifts.

Great little tractor.

Yeah,
I had one lined up with new tires, ran out of fuel and owner could never start it after that... talked the guy down to $950 looking at nothing but a picture and the story, and it was 2 hours away. He got wind of how to fix it I guess, and decided to keep, but sale was dependent on house sell and he wasn't moving anymore... On the better deals, don't move, snooze and lose. Oh well.
I'm looking at buying another...Super Dexta. Really like these little tractors. Buying another is easier than changing implement and I have an open stall in my shed.
