I've not seen one of these before. I have no interest in buying it or anything, I just thought it was worth sharing. Do you think it has hydraulic lift? Is it a single stage?

While we are talking JD stuff, do you think this one is original or restored?

I'm almost certain it has hydraulic lift. Our school system had these. Mowed with them in summer. Had sweeper attachments for the driveways too.
As to the other one. It may be all original. I had a 1976 Gilson 8/26 that was totally original and was about that clean.

Yeah, the first one appears to be a mower, with a blower attachment. They seem to be more institutional, with the front PTO operation. I have used a version of the JD F series as a mower.

Not sure why they never caught on with homeowners. Must have been price.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.
