Hi guys,

 

I picked up another Panzer today! It is a T758ES SER# 84164.

He said it hasn't run since this summer. He said it was his brother’s and he would never sell it to him. He passed away a few years ago and was able to buy the Panzer, mower deck and front blade from his sister-in-law. It has tire chains as well.

 

The deck is pretty well rusted out as usual with these. Behind the Panzer deck is the deck for my Snapper LT12.

He said he was selling it due to health reasons and a not having a real need for it since he has larger tractors. He said it didn’t have spark, so he took off the flywheel, sanded it and the coil and put it back together. He cleaned and gapped the points and hoped for the best. He said he charged the battery, cranked it over and nothing. He said he lost patience and decided he had enough. To be honest, I've lost count how many Panzer's and other GT's I have. This spring I'm going to see if I can line them up, take some pictures and straighten the shed up so I have room to work on some stuff again.

 

Here are some pictures of it already in my shed hanging out with some others.

There is a JD L110, Allis Chalmers B12, Penn 88, T758ES that was my dad's and a Gravely LI pictured, but barely visible.

 

Here is a Snapper LT12 with snow blower and twin cylinder Briggs. I have the hood off because I was putting the snow blower on when I took the picture.

Jacobson 20" snow blower.

I didn't get to mess with much today. I had to cut up some fire wood. A big dead tree fell down at the corner of a tree line across the field road and into the field. It's been dead as long as I can remember and the strong winds the other night finally brought it down. My brother threw the cut wood onto the trailer while I cut it up. It was kinda cold, but it had to get done.

That would be a rare tractor in this area. Looks like it is in pretty good shape.

Nice machine. Just curious is the gauge a stock feature on the later ones with ignition? I have been looking for a teal and white to keep the red and yellow copar company

Not this model. This one is supposed to be turquoise. You can see the original color by the key switch and a few other places.

nice. I picked one up last year that I am trying to get back together. I think it is the same as yours. do you have any extra parts you would get rid of? I would love to show this with the rest of our collection.

Not really. A lot of the ones I have are in need of parts themselves. Once I get them together I may, but until then no.
