How do these two compare? Is the LGT 195 a bigger machine? Or, just added options? I can fit an LGT 165 into the back of a full size 8 foot bed GMC. Would a LGT 195 fit as well? The 195 is heavier, about 200 lbs? I don't know why it would weight 200 lbs more.

Anybody know?

Thanks,

Joe

Joe, The 195 many different parts. I know this because I am searching for a steering assembly for my gt 14 on ebay. The 195 shows up and the parts are different. The fender pan is different as well as they have lights up near the seat. I think the motor was a kohler 18 hp. All this may add up to the added weight. Also these tractors seem rare. You may find more info on Tractor data.com I have not looked it up. As for the 165 fitting in a pickup, it will. I think the wheel width is around 38".  It is under 8' long. The only thing would be a mower deck depending on the width if it would fit between the wheel wells. I had a Craftsmen with a 42" deck and tripple bagger that I borrowed and had it in my Ram with a 6' bed. I could not close the tailgate but fit otherwise. It was about the same width as the 165 but not as heavy.

Hope this helps,

Buck

 

 

Sorry, I had just read your post again and I thought you were asking about the 165 fitting in your truck, not the 195. You going to New York to get that 195?

I'm thinking about it. I sure would like to have a three point hitch and power steering. But the logistics have me wondering if its worth it?

Thanks!

The 195 is a total different animal, and very hard to find parts and attachment for. It was only made for a year or two at best and didn't sell that well in most parts. From what a dealer friend told me ( he grew up selling and servicing Ford tractors) that the 195 s had a ton of issues from the power steering to engine overheating. So they discontinued them? Whether this was true I can not confirm, but I will say this, I would like one !! As it would work real nice with a diesel under the bonnet.

Here's the dimensions:

Wheelbase .  . . . 56"

Length Overall . . 84"

Width Overall . . . 49" (without mower)

Height Overall  . . 46"

Ground Clearance . 10"

Weight . . . . . . . . 1030#

 

 

Just bigger all over. IF you find one with attachments, better grab it. Rear PTO is hard to find. Here's the operators manual. If you have the Parts Manual downloaded, you will see in there the 195 is separate.

Pretty rare up here. In fact I've never seen one even though the 165/145 are quite common. Looks like Fords answer to the large "Super"GT's like the big CC's and the JD400series.

From what I have read the 195 was aimed at being an entry into the compact tractor market.
Much like the AC 620 & 720, But abot the same time the japanese tractors were discovered.
Thats when ford started marketing the Shibara tractors

I just bought a 195 and already have a 145 and they are two very different tractors in several ways. I guess it depends on what your gonna do with it. My 195 is slated for a loader and the 145 i use for the 4-way plow and has a better turning radius. the 3pt on the 195 is a plus too.

good luck on your decision 

the 195 would be a tight squeeze in a truck, you probably would do better with a trailer, easier to load that for sure.

So,
It turns out that it will fit in the back of the truck rather neatly. It does completely fill the truck though! Truck rode fine. But, you knew you had 1,000 lbs back there!

As far as loading a 195 onto a truck bed I imagine that would be very difficult. I had to rent a U-Haul enclosed 6 x 12 trailer to bring my Jacobsen (same as 195) home. This tractor, as mentioned, weighs over 1,000 lbs and mine came with implements. You would need an awfully large bed to load this puppy.

Well actually, I drove it to the top of a hill. And we attached to my nephew's jeep with a long line because the brakes on the tractor weren't working and just rolled it in!

I have a 2005 GMC half ton. I was able to put the tail gate up for the ride home (100 miles). I had no attachments to load. That would have been another trip.
