Are the LGT 125  LGT 145  and LGT 165 tractors the same physical size?  Only HP increase?

 

Thanks.
Conrad

As far as I know they are the same tractor, just different engines.

They are the same size and capabilities other than hp , only very slight differences between them, like the 125 has manual lift with hydraulics being optional. And on the 145 and 165 hydraulic lift is standard, with the 165 having an option for aux. hydraulics at the front (only on late models thou 78-83)

 Other than these minor differences they are identical. Oh and the 165's had larger fuel tanks on both generations.

Syryder2,

 

What was different about eh 165 that it could accept aux hydraulics at the front?  Im assuming if I put a FEL on the 145 it would need an aux pump.

 

Thanks

Any Gt will need an auxiliary pump to operate a loader at the proper speed, non of them have enough flow to move the loader above a crawl. Case even used a second pump on their loader tractors.

 They had an extra valve and 2 ports up front to run power angle on a plow and broom attachments . As stated it will not run a loader, way too slow and also not enough oil volume in the transmission case for it .

I have a 145 that has the aux ports , it has a four way plow on it

You could do it to a 125 too if you wanted it, but it was dealer installed . The 165 had it as a factory option . :thumbs:  :beer:
