i really like the looks of these machines looking for opinions of people that have them and how they compare to C-series in pulling power and other choirs have actually found a 953 with a snowblower a rear grading towed plow and a mowing deck other than the seat looks really good

They have one of the strongest differential gears of the 1 1/8" axles. They have the bevel gears instead of the 10 pinion or newer 8 pinion. Didn't they all have hydraulic lift?

I have a 953 and I love it! I found it a few years ago on Craigslist and have left it original except for fixing up the lights that didn't work and getting a new seat. I have a deck for it, but I never mowed with it or used it a whole lot. It was one of my "always wanted one" tractors so it is pretty much a trailer queen now. With that being said, I if I had a choice between a 953 and a C-160 to use for everyday purposes, I would choose the C-160. Not knocking the 953 but it is hard to beat a good C-160 auto. If you want more info on a 953 head on over to RedSquare for info on all things WH related.

The 953 is one of the best looking GTs in my opinion and are highly sought after by WH collectors, like to have one my own self.

well so far I like what i'm hearing.......... my intention is to do heavy pulling (up to 1000lbs rolling weight......chicken pen) and winter duty of plowing or maybe snow blowing mowing that's the wifes choir and she prefers her craftsman for that ..........yuk that's what I say to that LOL also I forgot to mention the 160 is my other favorite horse but I would have to have the 8spd

Aren't the attachments for these unique to these tractors?

I could be wrong but I swear I've read or seen some things that would interchange with D series machines

I don't think anything from a "D" series will fit.
If you don't get a snowblower with it, you may not be able to find one.
Or, any other attachment for that matter.
