Hello to all!
My name is Larry and I reside in Jamestown Ohio. I just purchased a GT17. It needs help cosmetically but seems to run well. It appears to have been in a front end accident. A couple of the grille slats are missing and the hood has its mounting holes re-drilled so that it fits correctly. The hood is also broken on one corner. I have tried moving it back to what I think is the correct set of hinge holes but this makes the leading edge (where it fits around the instrument panel) stick out towards the seat by about an inch+. The steering wheel is also bent which gives further evidence of an accident. Like I said the tractor runs and performs well. There are lots of cut wires and missing connections (safety switches etc.but nothing that can't be corrected. As it sits I paid 550.00, don't know if this is a good or bad price. I was able to find a snow plow for it for 150.00. Now I just need chains and weights and I'm set for the winter. I may have an opportunity to pick up a 48" snow blower but don't know if it's better to plow or blow at this point. I'll try to post some pictures and you guys can tell me what you think.
