Hi all! I had ask this before but I think in the wrong place. Please bear with me. I have the chance to purchase a nice ltg 195 tractor with a snowplow and 3-point hitch. Also has ag tires. I was wondering if these were good tractors and how much it would be worth? I have never messed with ford lawn tractors although we have large farm tractors(8000) which I love. One of the smoothest tractors I have ran. Any or all help would be appreciated. Thanks, Paul

I had a friend (who has since passed away) that had a LGT 195 and he absolutely loved it. He had all the toys for it. Used it for gardening and plowing, snowblowing, etc.. I don't own one but believe it would be a good tractor. Can't help you on price. I would guess , depending on condition $400.00  JM2CW.

Good Luck. Roger.

They are good tractors. Two speed rear ends. I had one in the past, only dislike was the turning radius was poor and the power steering can act funny when the front end gets sloppy.

If that's the one I think it is? I'd say go for it!
I'd go a little over $1,000 for it, if it were near me.
Not running is a risk. But if it runs, that's a great tractor!
I have a Jacobsen version of it.
At over 1,000 LBS, it's a big tractor. About halfway between a lawn tractor and an 8N Ford.

My pops has a 195, and it sure is a sweet machine. His has a backblade, loader, and a mowing deck. I have used it to mow his lawn just goofing around, and I have to say it cuts really, real nicely at a good clip. With all the goodies hung on it , and the large turning radius, it is a challenge manuvering in tight quarters.  Overall, the 195 seems like a stout machine, with a really robust rear end.


As other have said about the power steering, it can act wonky, but I have only noticed that when bumping the front tires against things in a manner in which they are not supposed to be . :poke:


For value, I really cannot say, though I have seen a couple go for around a grand in really decent shape. What is the selling asking in your situation?

Sweetheart of a machine and in real good condition it is worth some decent $$$ !! At least $1-1.5K in my book.
