Highway or municipal Lo-Boy

Postby 56cub » Thu Dec 13, 2012 11:02 pm

I just wanted to share a few pictures of a Loboy that a friend of mine has. I think it may have been used for mowing along roads becuase it has the balanced head mower on it. It also has most of the original foot throttle which I have never seen before. I tried to get him to sell it to me but he already promised it to some one else.

Yea, that's a hard one to find. I've never even seen an actual balanced head mower, and would LOVE to have one! I'd be pushing real hard to buy that if it were somewhere I could get my hands on it.

Would it happen to have a modified Serial tag on it.

I have seen one that also had the balanced Head mower and 2 gear reductions. That one doesn't appear to have a gear reduction on it. But I think I see the wiring for a factory horn.

Could you get us some detailed pictures of the factory foot throttle.

What was the main difference between the balanced head sickle mower and the standard No. 22 mower? In other words, what is the "balanced head?"

the 105 runs off a belt and will cut at an angle unlike the 22 that will only cut while horizontal

Where is that one located? I'd love to see it in operation before it gets sold off!

It may be awhile before I can get back out to look at this again. The owner is more of a friend of a friend of mine if that makes any sense. The current owner got this tractor for free from a neighbor after had been sitting for a few years and then freed up a few stuck valves and got it running. After he got the tractor running he gave it to a friend of his who bought a house with a few acres and needed a tractor. That hapened a few years ago and his friend still has to pick up the tractor. I erally wish he would sell it to me but he wouldn't.

When you go back up to visit, please take a lot of pictures ok? Detailed from different angles and lots of the mower too.
