I figure this will get KennyP's attention at least. I'm not very knowledgeable on these to know if its a good deal. http://terrehaute.cr...3614019079.html Eric Sent from my SPH-D700 using Tapatalk 2

Doesn't sound too bad for 3 tractors. But I wonder why he took the 16 HP out of the 165?????

I was wondering the same thing. Maybe its me but I would've fixed that one up first then rebuilt the others. I would think the 165 running would bring more. Eric Sent from my SPH-D700 using Tapatalk 2

Not to jump the thread but i saw what looked to be pretty nice 125 up in Kentucky. What does a good one with a deck bring? The owner was asking $500....I am not interested in buying it as much as interested in the value of these Gt's....it does not look like the ones in this picture....it is al blue and has the hood scoop.....if anyone is interested I can give you the link to it.

Scott, I believe you are describing an open side  LGT125.

That's a great price if it all works. Those open sided units pull real good too!! And are very very rugged !!

Just a little tip for anyone looking to purchase one of the open sided rigs..look at the choke device on the dash! If it has a solid rod and turns to actuate it is the oldest version of that generation. These have the lesser desirable Eaton 11( really a 10.5 in my books) and may or may not function as you might think! They do not have the cushion valving and dampners internally like the next versions did.

Not really , they are rugged and work and transfer power well, but can be mushy feeling and sluggish . This is all due to the stator plate , it does not have cushioning pistons and basically can allow the primary pump to cavitate for a bit . It doesn't seem to hurt the hydro components but it is annoying when you drive it . You might not ever notice , until you drive one that doesn't do this, then it becomes unbearable.
