Right up front ...I`m a Ford homer....cars trucks and now tractors/garden tractor/mowers. I got into the Tractor business about a year ago with a 1500 from a local county auction. Had bought a Shibaura 14 a few weeks before.
After looking here and other forums I am amazed at the number of different models Ford GT/Lawnmowers and how some have had stuff added to what appeared to be just lawnmowers. I`m seeing 100`s with what appears to be gear drive PTO`s on the back with tillers etc.
I decided early on I wanted a 14D or 16D but after much looking ain`t finding much ..at least for sale. I really like the diesel models and prefer those but am seeing a lot of gas models with the accessories.
Were the add ons available when the seemingly lawnmowers only were sold or are they like aftermarket stuff. The tractor data is about the best I`ve found for the different models but no info on add-ons . I`ve got an opportunity for a GT-85 but the 75 and 65 were diesel....are add-on available for those. The 85 looks to be just set up for lawn mowing but would be interested if add-on for PTO and or 3 pt hitch were available
Where would be the best place to get the info for add-ons for the different models? Manuals don`t seem to have all the info I might be wanting. I know the forums are a wealth of info but picking thru it can be time`consuming and the OPs may not be available for timely replies !
Any help would be appreciated.
