:wave: Russ Welcome to GTTalk! Great to have you here! I'm not a Ford guy, but there are a lot of them on here. I see that Kenny has you set up with the manuals already. If there are specific questions that you have, fire away and I'm sure that someone will have an answer for you! I couldn't find any ready references specifically for Ford parts, but you could try our site sponsors located down the right side of the home page. Thanks for signing up and hope that you enjoy the forum a much as the rest of us do!

Forgot to say my motor is the Kohler K5325 4 cycle twin cylinder air cool 19.9 hp. an on the body is the Model # 09JC3526 an the serial # is 1740 So is there any place to put these numbers on here to find out for sure what year my tractor is? Wantin to try to find different attachments for it like a back hoe, a bucket for the front,, I have the 60 inch Rotary mower for it an in good shape, I would really like to trade my snow plow in on a bucket for the front of my tractor,, Well I guess I better slow down some an have most of the winter to get my tractor ready for spring,, But will use it as soon as I can,, She sure rides good at least I know that much,,

Russ, there isn't anything that I know of to tell the year except thru the engine #'s. Cool pics. I think a lot of us would like to find one of these. Finding a loader and backhoe would be sweet, but expensive.

I believe the 195 was made only 1 year but might have been sold for 2, 1983 . They are rare! They seem to have been all shipped to the central us, as finding one in the northeast is next to impossible.
Your lucky though, most all the sheetmetal is the same as the smaller rigs except the rear seat pan and tunnel cover .All the attachments are special to it as well. From what the NH dealer friend I know said, they were very pricey and just didn't have the creature features that the 318 Deere had, so they were a tough sale, at least here in New England anyways.

Well from what I am hearing from all in here so far sounds like I was right about keeping the lil tractor an bringing er home with me,, (had to make a 424 mile trip) but I sure feel its going to be worth it,, So far everything is working great on er, Just lil stuff needs taken care of cause it wasn't taken care of at all,,Got to find a pully for the front on the bottom where the belt rides on 2 of em for the 60 inch Rotary deck, I don't have anything that hooks up to the back of the tractor but a hitch, I going to put a ball on it an see how it will pull my bass boat round the yard for when I need it moved,,lol, Ya'll got me wondering what this tractor would be worth,, But I sure not going to be selling er thats for sure,,
