HI EVERYONE! I have lots of garden tractors most just for my own use. I bought one that I planned on restoring (using) but after having it decided it just wouldnt work for me. I have always liked the tractors with the low high/range feature.Unfortionatly after buying a tractor i thought would be right I found out it was wrong! LOL basically I have bad knees and cant handle the foot operated controls. So anyway my first question is how do I post a for sale ad in the classified section? John JACOBSON 001.jpg

First, :welcome: to GTTALK! Glad you found us.

Second, if you click on the classified tab, right under it is a tab to post a new ad. Not many steps & pretty easy too.

If you do have a problem, question, etc. The best place to post for a rapid response is http://http://garden...uestions-forum/

Thanks for joining.

welcome, a Massey 14 or 16 would be a nice fit for you; a two speed final and hand operated hydra-speed. Good luck!

A Massey 14 or 16 is on my list of wants. Would be perfect from what you described as tractorgarden suggested. Welcome to GTtalk.

I ended up buying a John Deere 318. No 2 speed but I bought it right and I fit on it well. Plus a friend of mine has one and he has a way of finding attachments I can either buy or borrow from him. He already found me a snowblower but I would like to find a 4 way plow fairly cheap and if I live long enough LOL maybe a cheap 3 point hitch. For now I have to sell a few. I posted the Jacobson but I also will be selling a John Deere 165 and probably a Lawn Boy riding mower. Much newer but they take up space and tie up money .

I considered doing that but I came across this 318 for $600.00 and between it having power steering and how easy the attachments hook on. I guess i caved in. If no one is serious about the jacobson I may just have to add that handle and bring it to my cabin. Can I get some honest opinions isnt $600 a good deal for the jacobson with the snowblower and the deck? John
