I have a Ford LGT 195 tractor. This a very large tractor. Two speed hydro drive. Power steering. The motor is a kohler two cyylinder with the oil filter. I also have a motor that has some good parts but is rusted tight that will go with. I have a 6 foot deck that is in rough condition. This tractor could have 3 point but I do not have the arms. It has the lift cylinder and brackets for the 3 point arms. 507-469-9782

I'm not trying to be disrespectful, but what good, or how effective are the headlights mounted where they are? While driving the tractor, wouldn't your legs block the ray of lighting? Do all Fords have the headlights mounted like this?

That is a great tractor. It looks to be repainted. I would be suspicious of the condition. I would look at it. The price seems alittle high but these LGT195s are few and far between. That is the only one that I know of with the lights in the fender. Good Luck, Rick

Only the 195's had the lights in the fenders. Also, had lights in the grille like the 165.

I've yet to see a 195 around here. Some large tractors had the lights in the fenders as well but were wide enough to make the lights useful. Those don't look like they would work very well.

My Bolens GT2000 has the fender lights and I wondered the same thing until I turned them on at night. They would be great for looking down at the edges of the deck when mowing in the dark. Even for loader work they would be good for watching the front tires.

Ditto.  My Troy-Bilt is the same setup as your GT2000 and my first thought when seeing those lights was all they would do is light up the back of my calves.  Boy was I wrong.  They're more useful than the front lights.

That's funny as that's exactly what came to mind when I saw them.  Wrong.
