Hello all,

 

My very first Jacobsen was a Jacobsen Chief 1200 with original weights, dozer blade, and an unused 42 inch mower deck. A couple of weeks back I was scanning Craigslist as usual for Jacobsen's and the like. I came across a Jacobsen Chief 1200 that was actually local to me. Normally I skip over ad's without pictures, but for some reason I decided I wanted to get more information. I texted the owner and got pictures of it. It was my first Jacobsen! I confirmed it by the hose clamps on the lift handle, broken steering wheel, and the redone light wiring. Sadly, the mower deck was no longer with the tractor, but I have extra one's and I will redo one to get it mowing. To say the least I am quite happy about having the Jacobsen that started my addiction. I'll have updates as i get it running again. I only have the one picture for now, but I'll be sure to post more as the project progresses.

It had nothing do to with not wanting it. It had everything to do with being broke and needing money to be able to pay my bills. I did what I had to at the time, and I am now in the position to be able to have it back and take care of it.

Yes it did. It went through two owners after i had it. So I guess you could say I'm the second and the 5th owner. haha
