There is a nice Jacobsen LT750 Chief for sale in my area and I was wondering if anyone knows anything about this model. It looks all original and also has a 34" deck. The sellers just got it from the original owner and are selling it for him. They don't know anything about it.  I cant find any info on this model myself.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!jacobsen.jpg

Welcome to GTtalk ghuds.  I'm not familiar with this particular tractor but I'm sure someone will be along soon that is.  Glad you decided to join us.

Look up Ford 80. Same tractor only more common.

Wow, quick response - thanks! The owner said the ID tag was painted over. When and how long were they built?  Looks like a Briggs motor. Same PTO as the 80? Searched Ebay for parts but couldn't find much.

Somewhere I saw a Ford LT75 that looked identical.  Were more Ford's or Jacobsen"s produced?  I'm thinking of buying this tractor and parting it out now that I know there's two brands that share parts. I'm thinking they might not be too common since I've never seen either until recently.

That looks like my Ford LT75, except for colour. Mines a 73, and looks to be nearly identical, a pic of the grill would help.

I've seen them as early as 1970 (claimed), and I "think" they were built until 78.

Powered by a 7.5 B&S engine with a 4 speed peerless, they also had a snow blade available.

I love mine, its my regular mower, and will be pushing snow this winter. It was repowered to a 8.5 B&S in 98.

Look for a foil plate on the lower right sides of the hood, right by the muffler. The numbers on mine were scribed into the foil tag with a pen, and the numbers had faded, but a little work with a pencil and magnifying glass let me read the numbers.

The arse end looks the same.

My grill is different, and I would suspect later than yours.

I'm not an expert on Fords yet.

Welcome to the forum. I really like the looks of that tractor, and wouldn't mind having it myself! It would come in handy getting thru backyard gates for mowing.

 

So, is it still for sale..... are you getting it?

If anyone is interested I'm going to part it out, unless someone wants the complete tractor.

I bought it today.  It's a cute little tractor.  That brings my growing collection to 27.  I'm not the original poster.  But we're both in the Denver area.

You're too late.  :)  I bought it today.
