I might be getting this 2001 Murray Select MER soon. It was left behind by some people who were living in one of my grandfathers rent houses but sudenly moved out. I asked my grandfather if I could have it and he said do whatever you want with it. The problem is my mom wont let me bring it home until I get rid of a tractor first. So I need to sell my 1978 Sears GT/18 Hydrodrive before I can bring this Murray home. The motor turns good and everything looks okay but there is some minor electrical problems. Anyway heres a pic of it

That thing sticking out of the front is a rope tied to the axle to pull the mower. It was parked in the yard and I pulled it over to the porch.

Well I'm not going to get the MER or Fencerower. The MER got sold by my grandfather (he forgot that he said that I can have it) and the Fencerower has just been forgoten about and I don't think it will ever be delivered as well as the Agri-Fab Hard Top Chip-N-Vac that came with The Ultra when my grandfather originaly bought it back in 2006 or so.

Heres an updated list of my Murray equipment as wel as some stories about how I aquired my Murray's

Tractors

1998 Murray Ultra Widebody 20/50
20 HP Briggs & Stratton Twin II engine
Hydro/Automatic Transaxle
50 Inch mower deck
AKA The Ultra

2002 Murray Widebody 17/42
17 HP Briggs & Stratton I/C OHV engine
6 Speed Transaxle
42 Inch mower deck

Other Murray Equipment

1998 Murray Sleeve Hitch

2004 Murray 5/22 Push Mower
5 HP Briggs & Stratton Quantum engine
22 Inch mower deck

K-Grow Power Pro 1.6 HP Mini Tiller

Heres some stories about how I got my Murray equipment

The Ultra
I got The Ultra June 15th 2010 from my grandfather as a gift. My grandfather got The Ultra somewhere around 2006 at an auction in Muskogee Oklahoma. At the time of the auction The Ultra was a running mowing tractor that included a working 2001 Agri-Fab Hard Top Chip-N-Vac. The Ultra sold with it's lawn vac for $800. The person who brought The Ultra to the auction was an elderly man who bought it brand new in 1998 and used it very little. He always kept it in the garage and he serviced it annualy. The lawn vac was purchased new in 2001 by the same elderly man who origanaly owned The Ultra.

2002 Murray Widebody 17/42
I got the 02' Murray October 16th 2010 from my grandfather as a gift. My grandfather got this tractor from Wall-Mart in Ennis Texas in 2003. The tractor had been returned by the origanal owner because it kept flooding the carb. It was on Clearence for $500 so my grandfather perchased it. The origanal owner had bought a bagger to go with the tractor but for some reason the people who worked at Wall-Mart decided it was best to sell the bagger seprate but they left the bagger bracket and the weight on the tractor. When my grandfather bought the tractor it was brand new and had never been used.

2004 Murray 5/22
I got the 04' Murray November 11th 2010 from my mom as a gift. My grandfather bought this mower brand new in 2004 for my mom because she got a new house in 2004 and this mower was a gift.

1998 Murray Sleeve Hitch
I got the 98' Sleeve Hitch July 13th 2011 with a 1998 Murray GT that I got in a trade.

K-Grow Power Pro Mini Tiller
I got the mini tiller July 25th 2011 in a trade.
