I hate to do it, but I'm afraid the time has come to sell my 1984 C-195. My Grandfather bought the tractor new in '84. After he died, my father had it for a bit, but really didn't care for it the way he should have. He eventually gave it to me and I did some minor repairs so it runs pretty well. I used it to plow and mow for a number of years. What's included:
1984 Wheel Horse C-195 black hood edition
19.5 hp twin Kohler engine
3 point hitch (NO rear PTO)
60" heavy plow
51" mower deck (That's without the guide chute attached; not sure if that's considered 60". )
36" Snow thrower
60x30" wheel horse wagon
original owners manual
Wheel weights (Tires are also filled, gel I think)
Chains on front tires and parts for chains on the rear (rear chains in picture are not available)
An assortment of other part, including heavy bar for the snow thrower, a pull chair, spare oil filter, etc.
The tractor starts and runs well. It has some cosmetic issues but not what I would call damage. It's big, powerful, and a lot of fun.
It starts, but the current battery is undersized, so while it starts fine in the summer, I've been using my truck to jump it in the winter. The easy solution is battery with more cold cranking Amps.
The mower deck has been redone with some welding (heavy duty steel) where it rusted through. The center guide wheel it missing.
The snow thrower works, but is currently missing a link on the chain, and the sprockets are worn.
I moved a few years ago and now have less than an acre to mow. The house I bought came with a very new Cub Cadet and a Toro snow blower, so I haven't had much of a need for the Horse. I've been debating what to do with it for some time. It's a great machine, but needs some TLC, and it needs to come from someone who has more time to put it into it, more experience, more resources, and a better shop than I have. I think this is an ideal restoration project and that's what I would love to see happen to it. I really prefer to sell everything as a set. Please email me if you're interested with "C-195" in the subject line. I live in Upstate NY along the PA line.
Just joined the forum and it seems this placeis a wealth of knowledge....
Anyway, I am currently in the middle of a small restoration job on a C 125. The tractor was given to me by my grandpa and he was the only owner. The tractor was in pretty good condition to start with, just a few small problems. Sorry that I dont have any starting pictures but ill try to find some.
I'll try to post updates as I progress through this project. Hopefully this post will spark some good discussion. Thanks for reading!
