Thank you Chuck. What is the sleeve hitch?

It just another version of hooking an implement to the back of the tractor and being able to riase and lower it. A simpler version of a 3 point hitch.

As Chuck pointed out, these are very capable machines. I have a 16 horse and it ran the tiller without even a grunt, but it was in last years garden spot. Hoping I get to plow with it before long. Seal the deal, it's a workhorse.

RAVeman, if the price is good, that's a very nice collection of implements to go with the tractor. You would be surprised what that 14 horse engine can do. That tractor should be capable of all those implements without difficulty. Looks like a nice package. Good luck.

That's quite a collection of stuff to get with the tractor! That's several years worth of searching for stuff to go with it, all in a package deal! Best of luck in sealing the deal! Post some pics of it from all angles when you get it home! I like the side shot.

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


Roger,
Why are you sceptical about 14 hp being able to use a plow? Is it because today we see 20+hp twin cylinders on lawn mowers just for mowing grass? The 14 Hp motor is more than enough to pull the plow. Some of the first GTs had 5 hp and pulled them. The first walk behind tractors had as little as 2.5 hp and stilled pulled a small plow. The big issue is not the HP but the gearing and traction. This GT has the gearing, it will probably need more weight to get the most out of the plow. Go ahead and get the tractor and you will be suprised by what it can do. I know I was by my first GT, a 67 sears suburban 12.

Thank you all for your encouraging comments. Yes coldone that is the reason. That and I had a 14 hp Dolphan ( purple pimple) snowmoble when I was younger that couldnt pull much.
Just having difficulty connecting with the seller, to seal the deal.

Again thank you for all the encouragement and information. This is a wonderful resource and look forward to becomming a contributing member.
