Hi

My name is Lasse and plan to purchase Jacobsen GT16 (Koler) with 4 implements.

The owner is old and had this GT16 last 5 years and have only used the tiller and it works good, he says.

As I understand it was sold under names as Homelite / Ford / Jacobsen

It is not easy to find Manuals for Snowblade and Snowblower.


1.
Is it hydraulic lift for those implements as Tiller, Snowblade and Snowblower ?

2.
Is it something special to be aware of when I see the GT16 before buying ?

3.
If you look at pictures, do you think implements are complete with accesories as hitch, belt etc ?



Thanks for your help.

:welcome: to GTTalk.

I don't have the information you are looking for, but I saw this was your first post & stopped to say "HI"

Looks to be a very solid machine. Nice find.

Here is more picture of GT16, it has been repainted the last 3 years, says owner.

Easy to see colour chafed around starting key, it has been used, but no one knows how much.

Many says these old "minitractors" is good and well built to function many years, compare to new cheap garden tractors.

Welcome aboard Lasse, that is a great tractor! All the attachments look good , everything for the tiller and mower are there, not sure about that plow or the snowblower , can't see it all, as for that leak, it can be fixed, but you first need to pin point its origin.
You have a rare find there with all those attachments , it looks like a really good buy if the price is right. Good. Luck .

welcome....Those are a tough machine...its the same as the Ford LGT165, both made by Jacobsen from 72-76.....Looks to me like most of the parts are there

BTW, from the way you spell colour, seems like you are likely from Canada....quite a few of us here

Welcome! In the 1st post, pic #2. The mule drive is missing the bracket, a piece of lumber is in it's place.

There is a parts manual you can download for this tractor, along with the owners and repair manuals.

welcome laseman , the only parts i see that you may be missing is the unversal joint shaft for the snow blower attachment that would go between the gear box thats on the front assembly thats mounted on the tractor and the blower , kenny that bracket for the mower deck mule drive is in the photo just not attached to the mule drive assembly , also that plow is not orginal , the mounting brackets and the arm that mounts to the blade and the lifting parts are orginal , but the blade itself and the pivoting assembly mounted to it is homemade

"the unversal joint shaft for the snow blower attachment is missing"


1. Is it possible to upload a photo of "unversal joint shaft" to thread, so I know how it looks like ?

2. Do you think it is easy or hard or impossible to make this "joint shaft" ?


Thanks for welcome me and thanks for all answers

Best regards / Lasse

i will see about takeing a photo of my blower tonight and upload it , it looks sort of like the unversal shaft for the tiller , i have though before that a small tractor U joint shaft or maybe a large steering shaft for a truck or car might work , although grainers fastenal or tractor supply might have something that would work , i believe they use shear pins to attach the u joint shaft so it should be pretty easey to make something work

Hi

Thanks for picture and help.

Well, that "unversal shaft" is not something that you create in 5 minutes from scratch....

Is the inner pipe part moving back and forth inside the bigger pipe/cylinder to fit length (see red arrows in picture) ?

i believe the two parts of that shaft does move back and forth , but i will check today to make sure , by the way in the manuals section you can download repair and parts manuals for the tractor also the jacobsen gt16 is the same as ford lgt 125 lgt 145 and lgt 165 so thoses manuals will also work

That shaft should be easy to fab up with parts from TSC.
Yes it is a slip joint to allow for raising and lowering.
