    1978 Wheel Horse C-141
    Tractor is all original other than usual maintenance items
    Starts and runs like a champ, has has had for the 10+ years I've owned it
    Used only as a plow tractor for the last 8 years or so since I have a zero turn.  Starts right up in Michigan winters.
    I believe I am the second owner, purchased from a gentleman from the Flint area.
    Regular oil changes, checking the points, recent drive belt, and tune-ups.
     
    42" rear discharge deck, hasn't been used in years but had no issues with the spindles, would grease before using.
    Mule drive for the deck.
    The larger 42" blade is larger than what was available initially on these tractors, it was made in 82-89.
    Wheel horse wheel weights.
    Tires are loaded with safe windshield washer fluid that won't hurt animals or the environment.
    Terragrips chains for the rear tires give a lot of grip but will not ruin a paved driveway (they're a few years only, I learned my lesson on metal chains).
    Newer original style seat with no rips/tears/etc.
     
    I grew up on wheel horse tractors and have had a number of C/3/4-series horses and helped family members purchase them.  This is the one I personally held on to all these years.  Its just one of those ones you get lucky on and never have a single issue.
     
    Selling because I inherited a subcompact, and honestly plowing snow with this is much easier but the subcompact is more versatile with the loader, etc and my wife says I only have room for one.  I really hate to see it go.
     
    More photos or videos on request.  Original paint isn't bright and shiny, but I like it being all original.  Always barn stored by myself and the previous owner.

    Just google terragrips.  I think I got mine on amazon but they are on ebay, etc.   Great customer support in my experience. Get a size larger the size chart runs a bit small for the turfsaver tires on a WH.  I highly recommend them.

    Happy to report this tractor went to a new home, 3rd owner in over 40 years, and she and her husband have a great respect for wheel horses and will put it to good use - use it but not abuse it.  It was hard to part with, but this was what I was hoping for and it will certainly bring them another 40+ years of enjoyment.
