Hi guys,finally went north to pick up my goodies a 1974/1975 c 120 and c 160, i am new to collecting wheel horses but really like them, the c120 has a rebuilt motor and has never been run, has a snow blower but needs a new chain, and a good mower deck, the only thing missing is the seat. the c 160 has a very good deck and a tiller, i was very happy to find it had a mid mount mule drive as i did not own one and was looking for one for my 414-8 with tiller, along with this came a few boxes with the lights, belts, tire chains and spare parts, all for $400, i am ony posting the price so people can refer back and get some concept of what the tractors go for, i hate seeing a nice tractor being posted here as bought and no price, could be a deal at $50 or a not so well thought out buy at $$$$$$$$ i also brought home a jd 210 with mower and snowblower,integral hitch, loaded tires, side panels ($225) i was not going to buy it but i needed and attachment for my jd 212 , i also have an 1974 jd h3 but i am going to sell the deeres and only keep wheel horses

Nice find and good price. Unfortunately price depends a lot on location. Looked for months on craigslist and about the only thing less than $400 were MTD type lawn tractors or non-running GTs.

Congrats! A very nice group of tractors. That JD was very cheap. Hard to find even a junker around here for less than 400$.

Looks like you got a good deal. If you are planning on selling off the Deere's I take it you plan to flip the 210 to make a few $$$.

WOW! Fantastic deal! Those c series tractors are very well built. I would love to own a c160 someday, just haven't found one for the right price yet. ~Jake
