My latest find.
Lots of Pics
 

I picked up this Jake over the weekend.  This one is a 1450 (14 HP Kohler) Hydro with electric PTO and lift.  She runs and drives and came with a single stage snow blower, a push blade and a 48’ deck.  The deck and blower have some surface rust but no rot or major rust or dents on the deck or blower.

I have one bearing on the deck that needs attention.  This tractor even came with a Jacobsen tractor cover. The tractor may also have a factory rear lift? And yes the lights work and the battery cover is there.

I am wondering if anyone knows where I can find a manual for it.  I have already looked here as well as some of the other groups but I cannot seem to find the right Manual for this Model. I would love to find manuals for the attachments below.

Also would like to know the year (1970?)

Not sure how to help out the lift cylinder not working properly, is there a reservoir for the fluid?

Tractor Model 53260 S\N 5896

Deck Model 59782 S\N 5174

Blower Model 59643   S\N 7361

Looking for all info and feedback folks

First off, that is one sweet machine! You even got the 48" deck for it. The rear lifts work nicely as well. Hope you have some fun with it! :thumbs:

Nice find!
I've never seen a Jacobsen manual.
I just use the corresponding Ford manuals.

I have one of those also, but not nearly as nice. My electric lift is broken/not working. I have a tiller with mine.

This is the best we have for a parts list for these.

I figured the Ford 140 was the same.  Was not aware the 120 is also interchangeable.  
The electric lift is giving me a bit of trouble.  It is real slow and sometimes does not want to cooperate.  Any adjustment or fix that you are aware of?

  the ford 120 is identical to the Jacobsen chief 1200 but most parts interchange except the grill and other small things.

You are right the 140 was Ford's version of the 1450.

Are the parts from a 120 still interchangeable with the 1450?

Yes and no. Most parts are but some are specific. I've never seen a 1450 up close so I couldn't say for sure what all isn't interchangeable but I know that the grills are different.

The hoods should be interchangeable. Only other thing is engine parts that isn't interchangeable. Hope this helps!

Nice find!

I would put my money on either the up/down toggle being bad, or the brushes, and comm. in the lift motor need service, or a dirty connection. Start simple when troubleshooting. This particular lift unit works something like an actuator.

Little side note, looks like the blade is missing some bits, and looks like the snow thrower is missing it's brackets. I have the thrower brackets you need hanging on my wall. Pm me if you are interested.

Can you post photos of the bracket?  How do you get to the brushes on that lift?
