I couldn't say how many were made or how many are left, but as far as I know they were part of the White lineup for 1970. Thus, most of them were probably built and sold around late '69 through 1971. It was a lower cost entry-level model, so I would imagine they sold fairly well. Just like anything else that was sold for only a year or two, they are not as common as other popular makes. However, I think that particular Jacobsen LT design was built from around 1968 to at least the mid to late 1970s so parts shouldn't be too difficult to come by.

I owned one once, an auto and never liked it.  Sold it to another MM collector for too cheap, not sure if he still has or not. That was in MI, near Detroit. He has barns of MM's and other tractors.

Does anyone here know if this is gear or hydro? Thanks

Only reason I ask is because all of the gear drive ones have the shifter coming out of the seat pan whereas this does not. Also the hydros had the right footrest wit a "cage" around it.

Looks like someone replaced the hydro with a gear drive transmission. Only the 108 Hydro would have the "cage" around the right foot control, but there is no mistaking the gear shifter. You can see where the metal was cut to fit it in.

What model Jacobsen is hydro and what model Ford is hydro so I can start to look?

I believe a Jacobsen LT885 is a hydro one. I'm not sure what Ford is hydro. This tractor is a 1971 I believe

I'm not that familiar with these, that's why I ask. If someone has a pic of a hydro in one of these, I hope they post a pic!

Mine was hydro, but 10hp. Didn't think small ones offered?  Any, the dumb drivel lever came out of side of tunnel and was really short. It was UNDER my leg when sitting on it. Had to move leg over everytime I wanted to change speeds and directions. That was one of the things I hated on it.  With a snow blade on it, you needed extra arms to run the blade and tractor actions, much like a stick. Hydros should all be foot control to be easy to use in my opinion.  I can't find a pix of mine now, might have wiped it out.

I saw that white Town and Country today, and it left my place around 4:30 this afternoon. The new owner should have it tonight or tomorrow. Not sure when he was planning on delivering when he left!
