Hi JakeNut,welcome to the forum!  I don't have any attachments to spare.  I don't know how familiar you are with the Jacobsen tractors.  Looking at your left rear hub, it looks loose.(there should not be a gap between the hub and the transmission assembly)   You might want to check the locking nut for tightness, and also make sure there is a key in place in the axle. The locking screw has a square head ,and is on the inside part of the hub. Making sure this is tight will prevent hub and axle damage.  If you are already familiar, please disregard everything!

Other than having to tilt the monitor, it looks pretty good! Glad you got it!

Welcome to GTTalk. I rotated your photos so Kenny won't have to tilt his monitor.

I'm eating at the moment, or I would have done that!

Nice Jake. Gotta love the old ones. There might be some impliments around here but you should be able to find something closer. Happy hunting.

These are all complete tractors priced reasonable, maybe they will sell a deck or maybe you can get a deal on a parts tractor.   When searching try both spellings jacobsen/jacobson, some early ford stuff should work too.  good luck

Some nice units there. Any of them would make a good companion to the Jake.
