Hey guys, one of my customers knew I am into tractors and took this Wheel Horse C-85 in partial payment. My customer is in the well water industry and had no need of it and offered it to me. I assumed he would want big money and did not go see it for quite some time. Finally ask him how much after glancing at it at delivery and he said make him and offer. I offered $150, we haggled to $200! Best money I ever spent. All it needed was a battery,  cleaning and new fuel line! Also steering toe was out of alignment!

It had the 38" rear discharge deck which is perfect for my small yard! My dad wanted to sell it a few times and couple of guys tried to but it while I was working! That made me almost stroke out!! LOL :)

You'll like that alot. I like the "Black Hood" models, kind of the Modern Wheelhorses, but still the good metal ones you can still work on w/out bunch of gadgets to confuse you.  Nice big wheels even tho a smaller engine, but all you should need for a smaller yard and snow removal.

Took the WheelHorse out to get Bolens out today. First cold start of it in my hands, about 34% this morning.
