I have had this tractor for years. The previous owner had let it sit and it ended up submerged for a week when the creek flooded. It smokes a little, but pushes a ton of snow! I need to get some new pictures to post. This is all I have now.

:welcome: to the forum!
I am a big fan of the 129. Easy on fuel and yet they have enough power to get the job done. I just installed hydraulic lift on mine and am looking forward to tilling with it this summer.
Good luck with yours

Welcome! Bet you were glad to have that last year. Tough tractors. After reading about it being submerged, I hope all fluids were drained, flushed and refilled. Good luck with it.

Yep, they are a work horse. I like the electric lift. Who's Kenworth is missing an exhaust stack?:D
