I ran across a Ford GT18H that has a good mower deck and looks pretty good body wise but the motor is bad. :mad2:

 

What would something like this be worth?

I have to ask what is a GT18H? It's not a model I remember hearing before.

i have a yt16h that runs.  i dont think i would get much more than 500 for it ,but i am in a different area than you.  great tractor to mow with. tight turning for trimming. easy to use with foot pedal hydro. Noel

Ford LGT 165 was made by Jacobsen, the gt18h Ford was made by Gilson around 1990. There was a LGT17 Ford made by Gilson. It had the KT17 Kohler series 2 engine. Please correct me if i am wrong. Noel

Without a pic, no idea on worth. Next to impossible to find attachments for, however. Only made for 2 or 3 years.

Sounds like it is a newer tractor than the closed and open sided tractors we typically see on here.

That should have an 18 HP Kohler in it.

That is a newer version, and built by Gilson . it has the same type hydro as the Jacobsen built units but the brakes and axles are different. As is every other feature and attachments. They were known for bad steering and frames.

I have a Lawn Boy GT18H which is the green version of this Ford GT18H, but I got the Lawn Boy for free so I have no idea what the Ford would be worth.

The motor is a M-18 Kohler but the guy says it isn't any good, does have the hydro lift deck.

 

My Lawn Boy has the rear 3 point and I am hoping that I can pick up a Gannon Earth Cavator that this same guy has along with a plow and disk set.

 

If I can pick up this Ford GT18H for next to nothing I hope that I can copy the rear 3pt parts on my Lawn Boy and put a set on the Ford :thumbs: After I get the Ford running of course.

I would go up to $100 for the parts, if there is no attachments, but that's just me
