  1. Lets see the snow rigs!

    I see so many of those great looking red cabs. Can anyone point me to where I can get one for my 1979 C-161? Any help appreciated! Thanks! Jack
  2. Those nice Red Cabs look some tempting!!! Where should I look for one? I doubt those are WH OEM, right?  I'm thinking of gettin' one for my '79 C-161! Thanks! Jacques

    It's not "auto pilot" it's "chaperone pilot", lol... a little known precursor to the dreaded self-driving techno-hell coming our way! 🤠
  5. Lets see the snow rigs!

    Well had fun with my 1979 C-161 B&S 8 Speed with the single stage snow thrower... during the last blizzard that dumped 16" on Eastern Long Island. Did the first pass during the blizzard and a second pass afterwards. Ran like a charm though with 10F weather and nor'easter 50 mph winds the side cooling grill would get frozen and the engine almost over heated in the arctic cold. So kept a snow scraper to keep air-flowing through the grill And it's self-driving too as you can see with zero computers Made in U.S.A with American hands! #MAGA Click to See Youtube Video. As I can't figure out how to EMBED!!!!! lol https://youtu.be/bxKlqe8UkkI
  6. Looking for 1979 C-161 mower belt?

    Hi folks, Thought this would be easy. Couldn't find it the manuals or the the forums! I'm trying to locate a replacement mower belt for my '79 C-161 8speed. The It's the 42' three bladed mower that attaches under the tractor. Can anyone help me locate the right belt which loops around to the PTO. The belt is about 99". Any cross-reference numbers or help appreciated :)!

    My 21.5 foot 3,500lb SeaRay is an easy park in my tight driveway thanks to my '79 C-161. Before going out or after coming back. I just use my C-161 with 16HP B&S to park it or pull it out for my truck.

    Amen!.... Same goes for a pickup truck. Always get a kick to see these suburban Subaru or Prius drivers try to fit a box or a piece of lumber in their nano-golf carts! Can't do the job, if you don't have the right tools!

    Thanks Sylvan. A fun little video production to close out a good exhausting day!

    Jim, Wheel Horses are one thing. Wives are a whole different thing, lol. There's a whole lot of blogs and resources on em and still none of em know anything for sure. Way above my pay-grade to answer that!

    As we have small goat farm, there is no way that I'd be able to do the work without it!. I use it all year long. From moving logs, to mucking out goat and chicken manure, to filling in the potholes on our road with RCA, this is the beast that does it all! And purs like a kitten. Pretty much a wrench, some drivers, lots of oil changes and lubes and an occasional belt and it keeps on running

    Yes it did. That was the more tedious part. Luckily the soil is very sandy and the manual labor wasn't to strenuous! lol

    Thanks WHX11!
  15. Had some fun today, and moved a pine tree with my '73 Auto 18 Wheel Horse with and Ark front end loader. Had my wife film it with her iphone and decided to share with you a little fun of what amazing work this tractor does for me everyday! Enjoy!
