Drove dads lgt today with the m18 engine WOW!!!!!! What a powerhouse!! And man is it smooth holly smooth!! That is a match made in heaven!!! If i showed you what i was pulling around you would say i was nuts, but it handled it as good as the 8n does! Now i see why he was all giddy after he mowed his lawn with it, its a sweetheart!

No... please... what WERE you pulling today? Pics please!  :wave:  ...That does look like a great repower option. I'm sure your dad will enjoy!

That is the same engine/tranny I have in Alice and it does pull good! I think it does about the same as the FF20.

My Tundra could barely move this thing last year... Then yesterday we moved all the hay equipment up to the garage with it!! Cut-ditioner was the hardest, needed an extra 150# on the nose to steer LOL. No pics of that...

If you dont want hemroids then dont put a Kohler m18 in your lgt tractor!!! Why you say? Because you will be sitting in the seat for longer than normal times and not want to get off it!! Good thing ford didnt put this combo together back when.. They would not have ever sold anymore newer units. That machine is just ridiculous, only issue i see is a rear pto setup, that wluld be a real trick to get to work. Dad is going to wear that thing out .. It mows 4 hours at a time nonstop and he moves full hay wagons around with it too!! And it does it ,this blows my mind. And others as well!!

I have found that Alice has unknown potential with that M18! Awesome engines!

What amazes me watching this video, is not how big that trailer is, and how small the LGT is. It is how small those transmission gears in the LGT are pulling that big trailer is.

All I can say is WOW!

It is always interesting to see something small pulling a large trailer. The real question is can it stop it once it has started moving.

That's a good running Ford. I have a M18 in my Gravely, but I doubt that I could move that wagon.

The LGT is very heavy, both rear tires are weighted seriously, so it has wicked traction and those LGTs just pull really good , my LGT 125 that is completely stock, pulls unbelievable?? I can bury a plow and pull it with out any weights added on that rig, also it was used for 3 seasons of Tractor pulling and took 1 first place (for the season) and 2 seconds then I retired him and we built another . They are an amazing little Tractor for sure!!
