I'm going to paint it soon but I would also like to find a deck and a hitch for it.

nice thing is wh parts are easy to find, I found a sleeve hitch on ebay for around 30 bucks. I picked up a 36" deck at a show for 20 bucks but the gears were shot. I probably put another 75 into the deck restoring it but it's all fresh and néw and cuts like a champ, now if I can get the charging issue figured out...

I might need to use this until the ground dry up it doesn't get stuck as easy as a truck.

I have the deck with the rear discharge. During the summer my WH is only used for pulling a trailer and mowing in between rows. 

 

I have a deck, garden cart, plow , and snow blower for this. Pretty easy to swap things over to with the tach-o-matic

That rear discharge deck is nice. You can mow close on both sides and it doesn't leave a wind row.

You can also back up and mulch what you just mowed as well as blowing it behind you until you exit the row. 

 

 

I love my sears but I tell you this wheel horse C-120 is a monster, just as nimble as the Sears Just as comfortable. Only draw back for me is the need to use both legs one for the clutch and one for the brake.  Well built though and easy to work on.
