I am thinking of selling my early 70's Ford lgt 145 .   It has always been kept inside, runs good, but now seems to use a little oil.   Have a 42" (rusty ) mower deck, and a 42" two stage snow blower.   It is hydrostsat drive and hydrolic lift.   Wonder what the value might be!

That depends on so many things it's hard to set a value on them!

Welcome to GTT. The smoking may just be that it needs a tuneup. You can download the Manual from our Manuals Section(3 for free per day). Try these:  http://gardentractor...erators-manual/   and  http://gardentractor...service-manual/


As Kenny said it is too dependant on condition of the tractor and the local market. For instance old Allis Chalmers B10 tractors are plentiful in my area and a running one can be found for $200 to $300. In the deep south they seem to be scarce and may go for $400 to $500. It kind of depends on what dealships were in the area 40 to 50 years ago.


I think you should consider doing the work it needs and keeping it. To get a replacement with the same abilities would be $5000+ but still wouldn't be as well made. I have: an LGT120, an LGT125, and an LGT145. None of mine run yet but they were very cheap. The 145 was a case where I bought 5 attachments and the tractor was thrown in. The LGT120 was a freebie a friend dropped off in my yard and the LGT125 was $65 with a blown engine but included a nice mower deck and plow. They are great tractors and I plan to keep them. The 125's engine is on the bench an almost ready for reassembly. Good Luck, Rick
