Family friend has an L and an LA. Takes him a while to change attachments. Neat looking tractors.

It is cool....You would think they would have put the steering down the other side.

I wonder if it's manual lift and most people's right arm is stronger and would be easier to raise ?

Not that powerful. The L was tested (Nebraska Test, 1938) at 9.06 (drawbar) & 10.42 (belt).

Original price (1946) -- $517!

I like the small foot clutched JDs, those L/LA machines are neat be even better if they had a 3pth and pto. I chose an M for those reasons and also a bit more hp.
