You guessed it!
Two LGT 165's!

1.image.jpg

Brought home a second one this weekend.
My first one came with a 42" deck a two stage blower chains, and a weight box.
This one came with a 50" deck a single stage blower, chains, weight box, tiller and a snow cab.

Already started working on some minor issues.
First was really sloppy steering. I thought it had a bad Ross steering box.
But, it was just that someone replaced the roll pin in the spindle with a too-small bolt.
I fixed that problem for seventy cents!

Next will be a broken connection between the lift cylinder and the scissor assembly.
Then a hydro leak. It's makes me feel needed to have some thing to tinker with!

Not a bad haul. But the question is: what's better than an LGT 165? Answer: a diesel LGT 165 with all kinds of attachments and power steering ;-)

Those are 2 fine looking Fords! A cab, and a 2 stage blower sounds like it will make easy work of next winters snow!

This one was listed on another brand GT site.
Never put it on C/L or Ebay.
I'm sure I'm the only one that contacted him about it.

I don't think I've seen that one in Brentwood.
Ithe one in South Paris would have to be in really nice shape to be worth $1,000.
The tiller and rear pto are worth some money.

I haven't even put a battery in it yet this year!
I don't have any attachments for it. So, it's just a cool ride!
I've got to get all my Ford/Jacobsens out on the lawn for a family photo!
