About two weeks ago, somebody here posted a link to a Ford (I think it was an LGT125); at the bottom of the ad the lady said she would also be posting an add for a Jim Dandy that he family has. I looked, and could not find the ad, so I emailed her. She said she had not posted it yet, she also sent me pictures and the asking price. Since they had not even tried to sell it yet, the family did not want to negotiate any, and that was fine with me.

 

On Friday she emailed me and said that the tractor was still available, and they would come down on the price. Well, they came down quite a bit! I did not even try to negotiate, I do not want to loose the deal over a small amount of money, when I am getting it for a great price anyway.

 

Like 95% of ads, it "ran when parked" but not anymore. It is a deluxe version, so it has electric start, a body tunnel, and it should have a padded seat, but I can not tell from the pictures. It also has a mower deck, snow blower, discs, and a 10" plow. Since it has a snow blower, I am hoping it has dual transmissions... but I can not tell with the tarp on it. That will be a surprise for when I get there!

I have not went to look at it (it is that good of a deal) so I am not sure of the mechanical condition. The lady selling it states right in the ad that she has no idea about this stuff, so I did not wast time asking her. I don't see why I couldn't save it and use it, so I plan to get it going, put a small refurb on it, and use it to mow!

 

It is an hour and a half away in NJ, and I am leaving here about 3 o'clock. I will post pictures of it tomorrow night when I get it home!

Rysn,

Neat deal and with all that stuff too!

I just picked up a 1962 jd without any equipment. It has the round hood still and is an elec start Briggs.

Good luck with all your projects. I have the tow mower deck on saw horses so I will be able to take some pics of the wheels and height adjustment parts.

Actually, I found the wheels and brackets! You must have missed that post. Thanks though! Still make sure to post pictures of it for all of us to see!

I would also like to see pictures of your new to you Jim Dandy!

Did they offer the dual trans in the 60's and early 70's or were they still using the gear redution box?

I forgot to mention, this tractor is a late '65 model. I have a lot of literature from the early to mid 60s and it shows the dual transmission option was available by then; although, I am not sure when it was first offered. It is possible that this tractor could have a gear reduction box, I had not thought about that!

I am behind some, neighbor Dave is taking me to get it, and we had trouble with the lights on his trailer. We left about 15 minutes ago.

Just now seeing this thread too....I'm slipping!  That's quite am package deal, and I hope the attachments are in fixable condition.  Looks like then tarp died a long long time ago.  Rusty looking just means ya get it cheaper!

It was kinda tricky to get it out, but it is on the trailer and headed home! Unfortunetly, it does not have the dual transmissions.
