I have wondered that if you had a garden tractor with a 14 hp gasoline engine with a 48" deck and was cutting two acres of grass and you had the same tractor with a Diesel engine, would the fuel consumption be less or more with the diesel ???? Pros and cons ? Noel

Nice looking tractor, very rare in my area.

You'd use less, while having more torque.  You typically get more bang for your buck with diesel.  Diesel engines typically last longer and require less maintenance but are often harder to start.  Diesels sound better imo but are known for being louder than similar gas engines.

Very nice tractor! You don't see them around where I live very often. My neighbor has a LGT 16D but its in pretty rough condition.

This one wasnt real bad when I got it, all I mainly had to do was strip it apart and clean real good and paint.

I agree completely! My 20 hp Ford 1500 pulling a 5 ft brush hog mower burns less fuel per hour than my 318' 22 hp Poulan Pro. Or my 22hp Murray rail frame.
Yes that 2 cyl diesel is louder, but other than fuel and oil it requires little maintainence.
I had a couple of times the first winter it was hard to start.
But once I learned to keep the battery in top shape and fuel treated in winter, it never fails.

Does anyone know of a mower deck for sale for the LGT 14D? Or are there other brands out there that would be compatable?

Currently in the process of striping mine down for paint and fix a few things. But im just missing the deck to have a complete set up.

All im able to do with it right now is push snow. would like to find a deck and use it to mow again.

 

Thanks Guys
