What you have there looks to be a Gilson Twin 18 GT. The model # would be 53054. Contact http://www.toro.com/...es/default.aspx for more info. I tried using their Manual search on their website, but it wanted nothing to do with that model #. I think the best option would be to contact Customer Service directly. Congratulations on the new (to you) machine, and held og lykke!

I went to the site & scanned their lists. Closest I can find is model 53084.
Unfortunately, no version of that model has a manual online at toro

How did you figure out that it was the Model 401417? The number on the engine does not say so.


The Model, Type and Code are at the bottom of this sticker:

I couldn't tell what the fourth number was in the Model, but since the engine has a horizontal crankshaft, it has to be a 4.

I now have ordered the plans for the FEL from the site. 9 to 10 days delivery time.

Nice work. Which size is the wheel on the picture? Is it same size as the original wheel or did you make them bigger?

!st...welcome to GTtalk! :wave: Very nice machine! Has the Peerless 2500 series 2 speed rear end....likely an Eaton 11 hydrostatic unit. If it's roundish with finning, then it's an Eaton. If it's blocky shaped & no cooling fins, then it's a Sundstrand series 15. Again, a sharp tractor!

Thank you. Yes I am in good hands here. I appreciate it very much and if I could I would spent a :beerchug: for all. I have ordered the FEL plans so I have to wait until I get them. As soon I have the plans I will start to collect all the hardware (hydraulic cylinders, square tubes etc.) for the FEL.

Same size as original. 16-6.50-8. There BKT trencher tires. So far I am very impressed with them.
