I came across a sears gtv16 on Craigslist for 75 bucks. I wanted it for the Tecumseh OH160. Took keep for a spare for my OH180 in my gt18. Incase it ever poops out. I got it home and it had the quick hitch plow. Mount. The same as on my suburban but without the mule drive channel it just mounts to the front. I have never seen a suburban quick hitch plow with the lift lever that mounts to the floor board mounts like the one on my gt18 but they made them because I got one. All I had to do to get it to fit this blue tractor was drill another hole in my plow to get it to on because the height of the mount, isn't as high as the suburban mount. And then drill holes in the floor boards to mount the lift lever. I figured I would use this tractor as a "beater ". So I could hog on it and not worry about it like I would one of my suburbans. So after doing some work to it. Ie. Putting a bushing in the carb. Making it direct drive, and not vari drive as it was missing pieces. And putting a starter on. now it is a 3spd, because of the varidrive removal. Adding wider tires. Chains and 55lb wheel weights I figured I would have a good plow unit. I was really excited to try it out , but when I did I wasn't so happy with the tractor. I plowed with my gt18 and other suburbans with no wheel weights and just tire chains and they went very well. All this thing does is spin and get stuck. Especially when backing up. Does anyone have an idea as to why ? And why my suburbans go alot better . I know they are heavier. But I never had wheel weights on them and I have them on this 16 and the suburbans still went better. They cant weigh that much more. Or does anyone know what I can do to help it go? And I apologize about the pics. They load sideways no matter how I hold my phone when I take them
