I saw a 128 on Craigslist for $200 and couldn't stop myself...she's rough but certainly fixable...

The muffler was custom made and is stainless steel with welding padding inside...or so I was told. Looks like it will outlast me and the tractor...lol

As tough as they are, they can be dented...must have been a heck of a hit cause I can stand on the fenders and they don't hardly move...thick stuff!

THE END!

Nice find, The 128 is one nice machine. How well does the K301 run? I had a 129 that I mowed with for several years, I always liked working on that tractor because it was so well designed.

The 128 didn't have a working carb on it when I bought it but I had another laying around and put it on. It fired up and sounded good but smokes a little. But man those old Kohlers just sound sooooo sweet!

$200 is a great deal! No deck?


No deck, but I have another one of those laying around too. Just need a quick attach frame for it!

All in all, it was a good deal even with the short comings. I drove it around to the back yard and put it under the tractor shed...under it's own power!:smile1:

I have to say, Cub Cadets and Wheel Horses are like finding gold nuggets down here in Florida...I count myself lucky...3 Cub Cadets and 1 Wheel Horse in the stable.

You got a great deal on your 128, David! I'm looking for a tractor to plow with. I'd love to find one in that price range.

That 128 is in great shape. The paint is still in nice original shape, other then the dent on the left fender but that looks like it would pop right out. Great deal :thumbs:
