That's a very nice package. It has the hydraulic snowblower and the hydraulic mower deck. Pretty rare to see a package like that for sale.

If I had some money to burn I would be bidding on that up to the $3000 mark.

Looks very nice, appears it was treated with respect. Just can't help noticing the hydraulic lines underneath the GT flopping in the breeze. I wonder why Ingersoll put them down so low and exposed, potentially in harms way. :222: :446: Best Regards, Rich

That rake hooks to black bracket on front mule drive for mower more common see that bracket on ATV and UTV and rake lifted by winch cable hooked in eye bolt top arm.
Gator.... you're going to have to find a link and post it so we can see that rake mounted on an ATV or UTV. I Googled "ATV front rake" and came up empty.

Even if it does mount on the front as you say (and I'm not doubting you), how effective can it be? Here's how a York landscape rake is supposed to perform.

Is this tractor mechanically and functionally superior to a belt driven 4000 series or is it desirable because it's rare?
That's an excellent question to pose, Jonathan.

In my opinion, the answers are no to the first part and yes to the second.

The All Hydraulic Series were only made for three years. That fact makes them rare and eventually, they will become a highly sought after collector tractor.

Let's say that you own an older 4018PS with a worn out engine. So you decide to repower that tractor with a 27 HP Generac engine that allows you to continue using the OEM electric clutch. With this tractor, your mowing deck and your snow caster are going to FEEL the 9 extra HP produced by the Generac.

If you put the same Generac engine into that 4116, the deck and snow blower would not feel the 11 extra horses to the same degree because the hydraulic system will deliver a preset amount of HP no matter how large an engine is used to power the pump.

All of that aside, those are very nice machines to own.

The all hydraulic tractors perform just like comparable tractors with the mechanical PTO. The benefit of an all hydraulic tractor is that you don't have to mess with belts though I think the value is subjective. The downside to acquiring one of these machines is that some of the OEM hydraulic components are no longer available so they can be problematic if you need to replace the motor deck or snowcaster motor. Another "issue" is that the pump on an all hydraulic tractor has a higher gpm output and that means that some attachments designed for a standard pump output will run faster on an all hydraulic tractor. For a multi-tractor household there is value in being able to interchange all attachments among various tractors.
