Hello,

I just bought a Ford 120 hydro with a cab, NOS 2 stage blower, and a rough deck.  It is a working unit, but I am sure it will need some tinkering.  Thanks for looking!

Joe

It is aluminum.  It looks lie someone drove over it or hit something big, it is bent down in the middle and cracked, big chunk out of the side.  NLA?  Not Locally Available?

Thanks for the warm welcome!

Yep and if it is busted up bad enough might be better as a parts deck.  They often come up on ebay.  they are good decks, no worries about rust if you live in a wet climate.

Welcome,

Pull up a stump, grab a beverage, and show us your pics.

Nice cab, wish I had one.

Hello,

Thanks for all the replys, nice group!

I cranked it up to clear the snow today.  I started with a Cub Cadet 70 when I first bought a house, and that has done me well for the past 8 years.  A friend gave me a Bolens ST140, and I got it fixed up and added a snowblower.  The Cub has decent power and gets the job done (8 HP Kohler, not original).  The Bolens was a little more power (14 HP 2 cyl Brigs) but has much less torque than the Kohler in the Cub, and kinda light for blowing snow.  I Like the Hydro though.  So, now for the Ford-it is head and shoulders above both of my other tractors.  It is heavy, and with chains and ag tires it really digs in and turns well, and the 2 stage 36" blower does well.  Oh, yea, and the cab is great! 

She needs some tuning, and some paint.  It has an occasional miss, killed because of a loose connection on the solenoid, and a few other issues, but the thing sure is nice!

Joe
