That's how you need to look at it from time to time. Sounds like you are going to have a nice collection of Jacobsen tractors!

The 1965 model is one of the nicest looking Minneapolis Moline garden tractors in my opinion. I have two 65 108s among several other Molines and a T-1000. I've never come across a T-800. Good luck on your trip. Let us know how it turns out.

The banded 108 is just a beautiful tractor. I would love to have a t-1000. I missed out on a t-800. # 6 off the line

I am installing a hydraulic lift I bought over a year Go from Joes on tractor parts on ebay. I know it was missing the rockshaft, but it was missing more. One hose is completely fubr so I will get a new one. The cylinder is pretty rough and wasn't in the description. My fault for not checking. So here are the pics of the lift. I am need to paint the parts orange. I am glad this lift is not going on my T-80₩
