I just picked up my first WH, 75 C120 Automatic.  Found on CL for $250.  It has had 2 owners.  First owner mowed with it for 10 years, sold his house and tractor went with it.  Second owner mowed with it for 25 years and it has set or 5 years.  It has been garage all it's life.  Needed front tires, battery, rectifier, seat, and main deck pulley.  Was going to restore, all decals are intact so I may just clean it real well, clear coat and leave the patina.  Motor and Trans are good.

Very good deal on your WH.

I have come to the conclusion that the weakest part on a Wheel Horse is the seats!! Always cracked!

One of best model series.  Get a blade for snow, they can really push. Chains too. I never had weights on mine and it still pushed all snow I wanted. Easy to run with auto then too.

Great deal, excellent Horse!

 

Welcome, visit often!   :wave:

 

Yeah, those seats, ugh! I usually pickup new seats at TSC. You need one!  :shoot2:

Nice tractor!  And u got a sleeve hitch with it too!  I really don't think you will need a snow blade, as someone already suggested.  Unless in your part of Texas you get a lot of snow, of course!    But, they can be used to shove dirt and rocks, etc. around too. Too bad about that seat.  Finding another like it with the Wheel Horse badge on it will be tough, dang near impossible.
