And it's really over priced in my book !! He will be moving it to his new home, unless he's selling it to make the down payment !! :wallbanging:

Wouldn't you think for $3500.00 you would at least clean the dust off and maybe have original tail lights???

 

I am also thinking the blower is not original??? Wouldn't it drive off the front PTO if it was??

 

Granted I like it but...... (as Brian put it) :wallbanging:

I think the blower is MF? I know the chute rotate would be hard to reach.

Welcome to the Minnesota GT market. That's why I would drive to OK to pick up a rebuild project. We like to get top dollar here!

It certainly is nice and well made and if I was going to spend that kind of gild on a GT I would choose it over a new one .

Nice looking tractor. New tires, paint, etc. if he paid $800 or so for it, then added new tires $350-400, then paid for sand blasting and a paint job, I would suspect you could easily get up close to $1800-2000 just in actual cost and if motor work is done even more. Has 3pt option which is nice to have. $3500 was way to high, I wish he could get close to $2000 for it since he most likely has close to that in it. But I expect it will bring much less than that.

At $2,500 I think he will get some interest. I wish there was a pic of the deck, and some info on the snowblower.

Well hello, gttalk. I am the owner of this fine machine. that is in fact the original snow blower as I have the original 1969 invioce with model number showing it is in fact for the jabalina. I even have the original wheel weights that came with it. The reason I do not like to show the deck is to a non-enthusiast it would look like a nightmare.

Thank you for joining up and clearing that up, we appreciate it.

That's a great collection of original literature you have with it. Are you the original owner?

Absolutely, I am not the original owner. But I bought it from the guy that was about 15 years ago

Thank you for joining up and adding this info. This makes the package a lot more interesting and gives it a lot more value. Thanks again for sharing.

 

Also, I see the PTO shaft lying on top of the mower deck, is there a bearing out or something?

The shaft is actually two sealed bearings(the two shiny spots lol) that are clamped underneath the machine and are out in the open!
