Gilson 16Hp Hydrostatic Electric
Posted April 11, 2012 - 09:01 PM
I would like to start with some assist on identifying what I have here and then work at obtaining manuals appropriate for maintenance / repair. This tractor runs well once started, but requires some ether in the air cleaner to get it going. Once running and warmed up she continues running and will re-start fine. There is a hydrolic leak in one of the lines which will be an easy fix.
Anyway, I've learned some from the threads already posted on the Gilson/MW tractors and will appreciate any help I can get with my questions.

Looks like your tractor is in sound condition. Generally I have found that the single stage blowers with handle anything you feed them but I have not used one with the large center drum like yours. Doesn't look like it leaves much auger flighting to carry the snow to the center.
From the photos your deck doesn't look that bad. If you can find a spindle it shouldn't take much to get it going again.
Good luck and thanks for the photos.
