This is the first drive of a Murray or MTD built Noma Performance All-Wheel-Steer tractor with an 18HP V-Twin Kohler Command engine. We bought it for $100 last Sunday, and had just unloaded it from the truck to take a look at it. It appears to have been sitting a long time, but fortunately someone ran the gas out of it, so the carb wasn't damaged. The engine runs super smooth and quiet too. It's a shame the tractor itself is such a mess; the choke knob is broken off, there's no brakes, reverse doesn't work, and the steering gear is messed up which is why I had to keep getting off and fixing it. The scraping sound is the belt on the deck, which is also messed up. I'm kicking myself because just a few weeks ago someone nearby had 2 Scotts branded parts tractors up for sale on eBay, and they were identical to this Noma.
