Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum. I though I should share the purchase I made this morning. It is a LT 75 Ford Lawn mower for only $75. The man said it ran just needs a battery, he used last fall.He was selling on the internet so i called him he was asking $100 so i asked him if he would take 75 and within 10 minutes it was mine and it was on the way home in a few hours :D . I will try for pictures on monday

Its worth it for a rare ford lawntractor , specially since it does run. Nice score.

I've had my LT75 for some 5+ years. Replaced the carb. and battery. Added Amp and engine hour meters and had a plow rebuilt (replaces the mowing deck) for winter, gravel driveway work. Runs really well, strong (for a 7hp engine) and chains for the wheels. Also, installed a trailer hitch for towing around my road trailer for moving firewood and giving the neighborhood kids hay rides.
