can't wait to try cutting grass with the 195. i cut about 4 acres today with my john deere 400 which is comparable in size and horsepower. still want to change all the fluids first and do a tune-up before i take a chance on hurting something.
i always think about a diesel repower but i don't have the right motor to do it. i have a 16 hp Kubota 3 cylinder diesel looking to be installed in something but i don't think it would pull a 60 inch deck under the 195.
i didn't know that all 195's had the rockshaft installed, that should make it pretty easy to fab a 3 point hitch. what rear tires were more common on 195's, 29x12.50-15 or 26x12-12? the runner has the 15's and the parts tractor has 12 inch wheels.
