There were a couple of nice ones around here for sale, one for 250.00 a 125 or 1250, another one a 100 or 1000 finally sold after 6 months on CL for 300.00, both were late models with side panels. Making a profit from vintage tractors isn't always possible by the time you get them in running shape, especially on late 70s and early 80's Jakes, Some of these might have been built after they were bought by Textron. I just don't see them as highly collectible ($$). They are great users and maybe good trading material

That looks like an LT to me. Gt's had horizontal shaft engines!

If it is in nice shape and can cut grass, it should always be worth $300 in my book so $50 is a good buy. The Jacobsen LT is very similar to the MM 107 and Oliver 75 also. Looks to be pretty decent. I'd go for it if it were me.

It's one I would clean up and rehome to a youngster to get them started, that gesture is worth more than money

The tractor has a orange hood not the Lt with a white hood. This tractor is newer than those.

:wave: Welcome to the forum! Your tractor sounds like what we call a 'lawn tractor'. But may be different over where you are. Does it look like the one in my avatar? Some pics would be nice, look at the bottom of this post for help posting them!
