Yep shes in great shape just needs paint. it appears to have been used very little. It came with mower deck, plow, disc, & cultivator. Hope to get it repainted soon. I adapted a Sears electric 3 point to it just for show. I have been told the axels are weak and to not put it under a heavy pull. Any truth to that?

Keep in mind ...I do realize this is YOUR tractor, and you are free to do with it as you see fit.

But What the Sam Hell are you doing? This is a 'classic' tractor and should rightfully be restored back to its original condition to appreciate all of it's glory. That said would you take a 'restorable' 57 Chevy to a demolition derby? I hope I know that answer...I mean really couldn't you find a Mid 80's ingersoll for $300 to work? all the implements for any kind of work is out there... I guess I am kind of sensitive to the 180 in that my buddy has all of them...except this one (well he technically has one...but it is in Oregon and we're havin a hell of a time gettin it back to Michigan), and they are not that 'common'. We spend our weekends restoring tractors and implements - the good ole 180 has come up several times...

Congrats bud...that is a nice specimen of a really sweet tractor...

Don't get your pnties in a bunch bud, I never said anything about it working. The 3 point is just for show. Hardest thing it has done since I have owned it is push a little dirt with a back blade. I plan totally restore it when I get the cash to do so. At that point the three point will come off and go on one of my JDs.

Gary, if you had taken that pic from a bit lower angle, it would look very much like it's larger cousins. Nice tractor and be sure to let us in on the restore when you get to that. Thanks.

Nice tractor. I see no harm in bolting on mods. If it doesn't alter the OE parts, then no harm done to the originality....can be taken back off if you want. Bolting on mods is hardly taking it to a demolition derby!

While it is still just a lawn mower you do have a pretty nice and kind of rare one there. :thumbs:
If you are going to take it demo derbying then get you an ejector seat like the guy at 2:23.

Jim not all of us have more money than the Fed Reserve and enough tractors we have to move a dozen to get one out (or have a "buddy" who does either). We do with what we have.

That is FUNNY! We all have more money than the FED, they are so far in debt they will never see the end...plus none of them work...they rely on us for GDP which they are exporting...to China

It would be impossible for the private bank known as the Federal Reserve to have debt, as the debt created by them, for the federal government's expeditions are sent to you the through inflation and the IRS

Nice 180 there! I don't see the harm in using the old girl just takes time to find parts! I have a 195 with the blade, deck and caster and the 'ol guy still earns his keep. I have been slowly doing a mechanical restoration on it over the past summer and fall. Got everything done except the engine. I have 26 antique farm tractors also and all of them get used. You have to or else they go to crap on you.
