Well the 130 that Hydriv forced me to buy some time ago arrived yesterday. I had to endure 2 hours of stop and go traffic, but it was worth it. It has an original C 36 Lambert 2 stage snow blower attached. This is the earliest I have ever had a snow blower on a tractor. I usually wait until there is a foot of snow on the ground.

Hydriv is trying to pursuade me to video the blower in action to see just what it is capable of. I don't even want to think about snow.130left.jpg

Great looking tractor, & the blower looks very heavy duty built to boot! They don't build them like that any more!

Well thank you KBear. I kind of like the little tractor. I left the blower on to try it out as everyone suggested. I will have to find a brave soul to take pictures and a video.

I have to decide how much restoration I want to perform on the 130. Here is the problem. Someone along the way painted three of the wheels black. They just painted over the Red. I tried to see if I could get it off without disturbing the Red without sucess. So I have to repaint all the wheels. Of course the red used on the tractor is substantially different than either Flambeau or Power Red. So when I paint the wheels I am afraid I will have to paint the entire tractor. So the three black wheels are staying for now.

I was contemplating purchasing the 180 on ebay recently as a big brother for the 130 until someone used the BIN for a mere $2,000.

What snowblower is that in your picture? My apologies if the answer is an obvious one. While we have had our 130 for a long time we never had a snowblower. Is the original C36S now made out of unobtanium?
Thanks,
Dan

My manual says it is a Lambert C36®. It is the only one I know of. Steve Guider tells me he once gave one away. I am sure there is one hiding out there somewhere. It is bound to pop up sooner or later. Jack

I am surprised I missed this thread. That is one nice Case 130 you got there Jack. That is one heck of a snow blower too.
