I have one , and its in good shape with the snow blade and deck

 

I can get you pics of whatever you need.

That would be great, as I haven't had much luck finding anything for this!

thanks Chopperhed  i'm looking for a picture of how the deck attaches to tractor. I'm not exactly sure what its called.  I do have part of the assembly but not quite sure what i am missing.

Okey Dokey, it may take a few days, i'm in the middle of spring yard cleanup, and I still have the snowblade and electric lift attached. I'll try to get it dismounted and get the deck on in the next day or so. In the meantime, i'll get some detail pics of the mouns as much as I can.

I have no idea where you can get parts, but it looks be all built from 1-1/4" x 1/4" flat steel bar, and 3/4" round bar.

That's what i was thinking. Looks just like the one on my LGT165. I redid it a while back. Fixed a lot of worn rods and the swivel  bolts.

They do look a lot similar, but the LGT unit would be a bit bigger, and IIRC there is some difference in the way the deck attaches.

 

I have both sizes, I'll take a look when I get home.

I don't think I would pay that much for a vertical shaft mower.

 

Where are my manners??

:welcometogttalk:

I did, delivered to my door, in good running condition with a snow blade, and deck. Not original engine though.

They are defiinately different, just from measuring the decks. The lgt sytem hooks at the rear, and latches up front and is 10" wide on the mounts, and 23" front to back roughly. The LT75  deck is 3" shorter and 1" narrower, and hooks up front , latching in the back.

 

The lgt is covered with stuff in the garage, i'll see if I can get a pic or 2.

I took a close look at the LGT lift setup, and it looks basically the same as the LT75, just a hair bigger. Its built from 1-1/2" flat bar instead of 1-1/4", but otherwise the designs are the same. The LGT setup could be modified to work on the LT75 with a little bit of work.

 

My 73 LT75 doesn't have the spring like the 77 LGT100.

The spring holds the linkage up against the frame when not in use,
