Would like your opinion on this tractor, I know the price is a bit high ,but I have a 25hp outboard motor that I'm not using, and he might take on partial trade $400.00 off the price. I'm more interested in the two stage blower because we get allot of wet snow out here.

Those are pretty stout tractors and the two stage is a little harder to find.

I have two close side ford that are just a little newer than that one, but a lot the same. I think they are great. 2 speed rear end, Hydro lift, limited slip rear end, shaft drive to the hydro unit.

I havent ever used a blower, but have bladed snow and have pulled a plow with no problems. I think these Ford LGT's are over looked by a lot, and are very capable garden tractors.

I have 3 LGTs of that vintage...a 10 and two 12 hps...They are strong...A 16 would have no problem with a blower. I was looking at that ad earlier....Wonder if it comes with a deck? 42" and 50" decks came on the LGTs.
