My New GT12

Hello all. I recently picked up this GT12 a couple weeks ago. It runs good and works like it should for the most part. It came with a mower deck and a 3 point hitch. The Kohler engine does leak a bit so that needs to be fixed and my headlight switch does not work. I am really liking this tractor though. It is a lot heavier built than I first thought these were. As I repair and upgrade this machine I will update this thread with photos and info. Thanks all

Nice. The light switch shaft stuck or just doesn't work?

Thanks! The shaft moves but nothing happens. It moves a bit too freely as well, it does not click into place either on or off. I can unplug it and jump the wires and my lights do work but the switch is broken internally.

Take it off and take it apart. Nothing is lost if it never works again and the fix maybe simple.

Hello - Really nice GT12, you are right they are strong tractors. I also like the flip up seat pan - always thought it was a feature that more manufacturers should copy. Thanks for all the pictures, looking forward to your updates.
