DLX w/ FEL

It looks factory.  I'm surprised they made a loader for the tractor.  A more functional Johnny Bucket.

Was the Landlord DLX considered a garden tractor?

My brother has a DLX and we have already replaced a front spindle just from grass cutting use.  A very good tractor for mowing lawn, blowing snow, but I can't see it as a very good choice for a FEL.

lower end garden tractor. Sales literature showed brinley hitch , tiller,  plow,  available for rear attachments. Must not have been quite tough enough though, because when the ConQuest/Prestiges came out to replace them, they had the same basic rear hitch/lift style, but factory added a heavy steel reinforcement plate  to the inside rear panel of the tractor frame. This part was part of the optional  rear attachment lift kit.

No loaders were ever offered for the Landlords, at least not by Simplicity.

Does not look factory to me unpainted edges on gussets & the faces of the gussets look like the factory finish on steel plate.  Cut with plasma, water or laser.  No diagonal bracing towards the front.  However I will say a very nicely done build.  Very clean looking.  Probably fine for mulch & other light weight items.  I'm fairly certain that the wheel laying on the ground next to it with the broken spindle had something to do with it being used too much or lifting something too heavy.  I'd like to know more about the hydraulics.  Pump, valve etc.

Yes, would be curious how he's running the pump off of a vertical shaft tractor with a K71 tuff torque and no auxiliary outlets.
