In my research I have found that the 2000 Eliminator (5000 series), GT2000 (5100 series) and DGT1700 (5100 series) appear to all share similar parts. I think they all have the 2 speed rear end. I was wondering how close the Eliminator 2000, GT2000 would be as far as parts tractors for a DGT1700.
It looks like they all have the cast iron front end. The DGT1700 and the GT2000 seem to have the same hood while the 2000 Eliminator has the Eliminator style hood but other than that the bodies and parts seem very similar. Thank you for any thoughts on this.
