    Hydrostatic Drive Tractors

  2. WTB - decent running Onan B43G for a 318

    Want To Buy
    Need an Onan B43G in good running condition. If you have a P218G, would be interested as well, but would need the driveshaft too. Hoping to find something close(ish) to the Canadian border (I'm in Ontario close to Toronto), or someone willing to ship (more ideal). Thanks!
