I had never seen a MM garden tractor in real life, before I saw one in the back of a truck I passed on I-75 Monday on my regular commute. Oddest thing to see here in GA, two MM and two rear engine JD riders.

Boy thats a sweet collection. I ran across a fella mowing with one a month or so ago at a local corn maze. Turns out he is a big Oliver and growing AC ag tractor collector, and handles his small lawn areas with the MM and an Oliver variety gt. He had no other lawn and garden equipment and seemed far less impressed by what he had than I was. He was NOT, however, interested in letting anything go =]

I bought one of those at a local scrap yard years ago. This one (if I recall correctly) was green and red and was called a Jacobson Chief ? Sound right ?

Cost me 100 bucks and would have been a pretty good machine but the transmission was shot and a few other things. After the tornado a few years ago I pulled the engine and hauled it away for scrap.

It had 3 lug hubs on the rear if I remember correctly and the hood and dash were aluminum. The engine is the sweetest running Kohler I've ever seen. I have a Power King I hope to set the engine on.

Very rare around here as your pics are the only others I've ever seen. Kind of wish I had kept it now but in the aftermath of the storm I had more going on than I could handle.

Gratz on your find. Good looking machine.

id="quote">Yes...they were rebadged as several brands, if I'm not mistaken. Ford, Oliver, MM, etc. were all to the Jacobsen, as Allis was to the Simplicity of the era. Some, were much more scarce tahn others, and any GT with a 'Big Tractor' brand, seems to drive a higher price than their L&GT-only counterparts.
