Hello My name is Roger. I am looking at purchasing a Jacobsen Gt 14 hp with a Koler engin. This tractor comes with implements like a roto tiller and a ground plow. My question is, will a 14Hp really have enough power to pull a one farrow ground plow?

Thank you
Roger

Pictured in this ad is also a 8 disc harrow. I am spectical about the size of the harrow's to the size of the tractor.

The picture of the Roto tiller looks like there is a PTO shaft instead of an indipendant power supply, is this possiable?

A giant yes to all above ? , Raveman. If it is runs right , it will have no problem with the implements. They are a very good machine. Welcome to the forum and we love pictures!

That is same as the open side for LGT 145. It is a very cappable machine. The tractor in my avatar is a 14 hp ford lgt 145 It is a closed side model which is a little newer, but pretty much the same under the skin.

here is video of it plowing.

and yes the tiller, sleeve hitch and snow plow all belong with that tractor and were made by jacobsen.

the plow and disc are probably Brinly which will work with any GT with a sleeve hitch or sleeve hitch adapter on a 3pt hitch.
