I had to step past the "No Tresspassing" sign to take this pic with my phone, best I could do... It's at an abandoned driving range, sitting just like this for 8-10 yrs... I finally got a line on the guy who owns it. I'm stretched pretty thin time/project/fund wise but hate to see it sit. Guy is a business man and it might not even be for sale IDK. I don't have his ph# yet, but should have it w/in a week. Guess I'll call him & see... What's fair for a "fair" condition? No attachments, he used to drag reel mowers with it. It does have the dual rears.

Closest pic I could find to what it looks like:

NO idea as to it's worth, but restored they sure do look cool as can be! The hood makes it remind me of my JB tractors, but on massive steroids! Put a 3pt lift on the back.........wow!

Keep looking for the owner and one of us will own that thing. Call it a hunch.

Now that is a neat looking rig! I hope you can track down the owner and snatch it up.

I've left 2 messages with the real-estate agent for the owner. (property is up for sale)

I've not gotten a return message yet. Guess this is one I have to walk away from and watch rot. Oh well. Sniff.

Looks like a Jacobsen G10 that was purposely built to pull a 3 to 5 Jacobsen gang reel mower around a golf course. The orange paint on the restored one was a big help.

Found this on Yesterday's tractors:
"Mostly used for pulling gangs of reel mower's on golf courses and parks. They were made for pulling lighter loads and had dual wheels for lower ground pressure. I saw one at an auction a few years ago that had a loader on it. Wouldn't work worth a darn with a loader because 1. It is too light and 2. It is geared too fast. I think they use a standard truck 4 speed trans. and rear end. They go about 40 mph so you could get to the different job sites faster. I would guess in the 40 to 50 HP range. Probably the same HP as an AG tractor with the same engine. My dad used to sell them years ago but I don't have any idea what they're worth. They were made into the 70's. Jacobsen sold a rebadged MF20C turf tractor as a G20 in the 80's. Dave"

Maybe the owner is out of state. Anyway to look up tax records on the property to find the owner?

They are out of state. Colorado, I think the guy said. IDK on the tax lookup, but my guess is it's some sort of Real Estate group who bought it from the PO to flip it. Then land went down the tubes.
