Recently acquired this HT18

from believed the 2nd owner

looks ruff but decent machine

Checked tractor data and am confused

mainly with rear tire size-

they list the rear tires as 15 inch ??

it has the 26x12x12 this was a little disappointing

and also show this to be a 1 year only machine 1973

just wanting a clarification

 

came with power angle plow and is believed to never had a deck on it

Yes they were only built in 1973 and you could have the 15inch or the 26x12x12.  The 26x12x12 is comman on most large frames.
