Not sure of the year or model on this, it's been sitting at an abandoned building for years next to my friends house, going to see if we can find the owner and aquire it,, shhh, don't tell the wife, it looks pretty complete and restorable,

Best of luck,it looks to be a great starting point for a project tractor! Good thing it's not in my area or the scrap thieves would have already swiped it.

Wow! Most complete their. Looks like a 10 or 12 hp engine, a rear discharge deck (my fav.) and the pto clutch is still on it and belts. Not sure why it has that "lean" to it, but heck, might just be a low tire or dip in ground. I've been buying up old WH lately and they look that sad or worse. Once you've had and work on a WH, you'll be hooked on the ease of repairs and finding parts. Many years interchange. Go get it! Lots of models look the same, so hard to know at first look. C-100, chargers, etc. Some are stick, some are hydro or automatic as they say. should be a tag on it somewhere to check for model.

You can see the ID plate on the side of the hoodstand below the dash housing in the 1st picture. Would like to know the model number and serial number.

The starter/generator started to disappear in 1968. I think the hood ornaments were last used in 1975.

Because of the DCL (direction control lever) location it has to be a 1973, and the lack of headlights leads me to believe that it's a 10hp.

If that's the case, the model number would be 1-0470 or 1-0475 ~ depending on whether the hydro unit is a HydroGear or piston-to-piston Sundstrand.

I'll try to get the numbers of it next time I'm there, yea , the lean is from the left rear being on a slab of cement and the right rear is flat, it is a neat machine and will be my first Horse in the stable, is that an original saddle on that, not to familiar with them ? ,

Is there a 'legal code' by which something can be declared as scrap and taken freely??

I wouldn't trust e-how very far on legalities, but this actually talks about a mower on abandoned property.
http://www.ehow.com/...ned-mowers.html

I think the first step is to go to the courthouse and ask who owns that property. Also find out if it's listed as abandoned.
Locally, I would check with the property tax Dept and find out if backed up on taxes, or if the property is up for sherrifs sale or the stuff is decreed to be up for sale by a judge.

I would not ask around the neighborhood yet. If you do, be careful.
"Hey Bob, some guy was looking for you. Says he's really interested in your old mower. Yeah, you might be able to make $3000.00 here.... I say one listed on eBay...". :rolleyes:

Look up the county tax records online and see if there is an owner listed. Most of NC has a GIS site that will give you a map and tell you the owners and their listed address.
