This C81 is a pretty nice tractor the only issue that I have found with it so far is the worst worn out hub that I have ever seen. I had a spare set on the shelf so I pulled the worn hub off and put a fresh hub on. Now it's ready to push,pull,or mow ! I hit the paint quick with rubbing compound,I still need to finish that up,paint the wheels and replace the seat. I also recently picked up a very solid complete 42 inch rear discharge deck in great shape,including the covers. The only issue is there is no paint left on it. I hope to get it sand blasted and painted before spring. I plan to use the tractor for a back up mower this year. Forgot to add that the hub was so loose it would spin an 1 1/2 inch or more on the axle before engaging and was held in place with collars with set screws,one behind and one in front of the hub.
