Bought this 420 LSE. It’s #37/200. More of a worker than a show tractor. I’ll probably continue to use it as a worker. Needs some cosmetic elbow grease more than anything. Came with 48” deck, & wheel horse grass catcher system, Snow Blower, 2 aerators, (plug & spike type), & a grass thatcher.
So about a year ago jimt1971 started talking with Pilgrim regarding a worker 420LSE. Long story short the neighbor or friend (I can't remember which) purchased the tractor to use. We werr okay with this as we were told that if the person who got it didn't like it, he might get it back. Fast forward to a few weeks ago, Jimt1971 got word that pilgrim got the tractor back and wanted to see if he was still interested in purchasing it. The price was agreed to, and we hoped that Pilgrim could make it to the WHCC show😥 unfortunately he was not able to make it, sooo we agreed to go out to his place to pick it up. We left at 5:30am, and started our 12 hour road trip...got to Pilgrims, and got to spend a small amount of time with him and his wife before having to head back home. I have to say that Pilgrim and his wife are two of the most genuine people I have had the pleasure of meeting. They were amazingly sweet, and a pleasure to do business with. Today we got to take a better look at the tractor, and we plan on restoring it back to its former glory. The one thing thatvwill remain is the decal from the mower shop that it came from to preserve its history!! Without further adeau, here are the pics
Well I didn't want to buy any more machines. I am out of space and have no time to spend with them like I used to. So at the last minute I decided to grab my boy and take our 420 LSE and Jacobsen Chief to a parade/show about 25 minutes away with some good friends. As I was lined up for the parade, one of the other club members came up to me and said a fellow across the field has some Horses he wants to sell. I almost didn't go, but I have learned a long time ago that you follow up on all leads. He mentioned to me he bought one at auction a while back and was planning on fixing the broken axle, but never got around to it. I almost lost interest until he said it had chrome rims and was a special edition. So needless to say I cruised on over to his place after the parade and we struck a deal. I am glad I had my tractor money with me at the time. the bottom of the seat is ruined....but hey maybe I will ship it to KenB and have him do his magic. Also as you can see the axle is broken.....of course that will be fixed. In some ways this one is better than my first one and in some cases the first one has better parts. so needless to say #2 is now home waiting for some love. The first photo is how I got it. The last two pictures are after a quick 20 minute wash. Only 580 hours on the meter but no clue on what number this one is.
