Tom from Belgium

Recommended Posts

hi everyone,

i'm Tom i live in a small town called Werchter, some off u may know it from the festival Rock Werchter

i'm 26years old and have a Wheel Horse C-120 bought when i was 14. The lawn shop revised it, so almost everything would work, but they didn't do a good job so i've started to do it myself...

Taking apart was easy but the electrical plan is a bit harder then i guessed, my old Citroën is easier...

yeah, my dad bought it for me because we had a small toro lawnmower but because the work was a bit too tough for it it had to be replaced, and we saw the WH standing at a lokal garage so we tought why not, and 2weeks later my old man surprised me with it...

Hi Tom,

Good to have another Belgium member on the forum! My wheelhorse addiction also started when I was 14. If you ever need any help or maybe parts, feel free to ask as I live not that far from you.

Groetjes,

Pieter-Jan

A great machine to mow, even on hills like 30° and more, it feels a bit strange at first but once you've done it you'll get used to it

ik ken het raider-model alleen van naam maar ergens logisch dat ze op elkaar gelijken want ik geloof als ik me niet vergis dat de C-120 de opvolger is van de Raider 12

      Very good condition 48" Wheel Horse mower deck. Freshly serviced, repaired & renovated ready for use. Underside of the deck was cleaned to bright metal then coated with 2 coats of "Easy Slide" graphite paint to protect the metal and reduce grass sticking. Blades are sharpened, all gauge wheel axles greased, spindles greased. One patch was needed near the discharge chute (see photos of top-side patch and bottom-side patch. Top side was painted to cover bare spots where paint was missing and to Match the patch to the rest of the deck. This paint job is not a show paint job, but one to preserve the metal after all rust was removed. Overall this deck is very solid and should give many more years of service if cared for properly! The price will go up in the spring, so don't wait, these decks are getting harder to find as time goes by! Mule drive is included. 
      If interested, PM me for complete album of photos.

      Selling my 79' C-161. She runs great. The tires are new and alone cost over $500. Wheel weights are included too along with the plow. No mowing deck.

      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 good:
      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. 
       
      The bad:
      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.
