Hi Guys, bought 2 tractors today, dont tell the wife, i bought a wheel horse c 120 and a c160 both with decks, a rototiller and a snow blower which needs some tlc, weights, chains and lots of extra goodies , the c120 has a rebuilt motor (2010) both machines are gear, all for the grand total of $400, thought it was pretty good since up here in canada we arnt allowed guns ha ha ha, any idea on where to get decals for restore and should i keep both? or which one? i really want older ones (50s-60s) but this seemed to good to pass up, any idea what years these were made,ps a gentlemen offered me a wheel horse A90 in supposedly good condition , with deck and running $50 is it collectable, rare, or just run of the mill. thanks all, farmer john

I am going to tell her if you don't show us some pictures! The model numbers on the side of the steering tower will help identify the year.
Here is a web site of a fellow that makes excellent reproduction WH decals. Check him out.

That's a great deal farmer John!
Those tractors are mid seventies. Both tractors are the same just one is twelve horse
And one is sixteen horse. The twelve will do anything you need it to.
I'm working on a sixteen horse right now. I don't yet know if I'll be sold on it.
But, who dose'nt like more horse power?
The tach-a-matic system makes them garden tractors.
There are three different rear hitches available for them. A fixed hitch for towing, a Clevis hitch for wheel horse
Implements and a brinly sleeve hitch
An A90 is a lawn mower. Not rare or particularly collectible. But, a good small tractor.
