Pretty sure it's a golf course tractor, either a Toro or more likely a Jacobson. Cool Tractor regardless.

I think it's a Toro golf tractor as well, without the gang mowers.

I think I've got it. Jacobson G10 172 CU in Ford 6 industrial with 4 speed transmition and could have 3 point hitch. Darn I want one!
I' try to post a picture but have never done it so we will see.

Yep, Jacobson... There's one near me that the guy won't sell. Wants to sell it with the driving range. This one has a 3cyl I believe.

No, they're tugs. Specifically designed for pulling. Built for gang mowers, but saw a picture of one used at a marina for pulling the boat trailers out of the water.

Three CYL might be possible too on a later model. One ad I found listed one with a Twin CYL Kohler(no picture or specs). I saw a Couple Ads for Worthington-Jacobson Turf Tractors. I know Worthington made a lot of Turf tractors and kind of pioneered that market, I wonder if Jacobson bought them out.
I als found ads for Worthingtons going back to 1939 model with a Ford B 4 cyl. Honsestly I know nothing about Turf Tractors, other than the Ad's Arnold Palmer used to do for Toro or was it Pennzoil. But like to get on a tangent and see what I can learn about things like this. Worthington built some on the Ford 8N powerunit with a 1/2 ton front axle and a 3/4 ton transmition and rear axle.
It apears as if they used Truck Transmitions and Differentials so built much stouter than a golf cart.
One ad I read listed top speed at 35 mph.

Since my entire 8+ acres is one big hill, I think the stability of one of these could be useful.

Exactly What I had in mind!! Ags on the back tri ribs on the front.

I plan to turn my hill into an Orchard,Berry, Hazelnut and Produce Farm, in a contour format and possibly make hay on the grass strips between the rows.

It is a Jacobsen G10. Mower. Some have PTO Some don't Some have 3 point hitch, some don't. some have power steering some dont. In 1953 they used a Ford Jubilee Tractor Engine,a Ford Truck transmission, and a Ford truck rear end. I just bought 2 of them this summer. one was fixed up the other is my project. I need to find an engine for the project. attached is a photo of the nice one.
