Portland has several GT14's for sale. Most around $400. Looks like a nice big unit. I was unaware of this model. Labeled as Automatic. Is that a hydro or some other type drive? Was thinking of getting one, but not sure I need anymore units. These pretty workable and able to find parts if needed?

Have a look at this link Grumpy. It looks like a really nice GT to me although it would be roughly 40 years old. Not sure on parts. It may be an issue.

GT14s are great tractors, but sort of a loner in the Wheel Horse mix of things. While most attachments fit across the Wheel Horse model range, GT14s had some unique attachments. Parts are also harder to find. But, they are an outstanding tractor. We have a couple of members here who have a vast more knowledge of Wheel Horse and all things Wheel Horse that can be a better resource for your questions.

The 953, then the 1054 were Wheel Horses first entries in the large frame arena. A few years had past after the 1054 before the GT14 came out. The 953 and 1054 were gear drives while the GT14 were hydros.

Several at show, one really nice one. Talked to fella towing one after purchase and he also said most parts are specific only to that model. I think they are neat, but passed on it. I DID buy a D-80 tho to play with and will be back with questions I'm sure. I'll start with ID tag when I get it home. It has a hydraulic lift some guy put on, but that is coming off, doesn't look too nice and doesn't belong there.
