    D 200 disappointment

    I should have titled it d 200 frustration instead of disappointment. I put about 50 pounds of washer fluid in each tire, but that’s not enough weight. Not disappointed in it at all, just disappointed that I didn’t get the seat time I was hoping for. I have chains and rims for the 26-12-12 tires, just not the tall skinny ones. In my mind I was thinking those ag tires would just dig in and push. I was way off. That is the fun part, playing with different set ups to see what works and what doesn’t. Time to track down some 26 inch turfs

    D 200 disappointment

    Well I finally got my d 200 back together and ready to dig out from the weekend storm. I didn’t get 5 feet out of the barn and was stuck. Got it freed up and made it 10 feet before it happened again. I’m pretty frustrated with it, got the big Ag tires and filled them with washer fluid and all it does is spin. I have a set of chains but they are for the smaller tires so they don’t fit. And then I found out the new fuel valve I put ini is still leaking. About ready to throw my arms up for the day

    Does the width make a big difference? As long as its an 18 1/2 inch blade with the 3/4 hole it should work right? Or am I thinking incorrectly?

    I’ll have to check if the model tag is still on the deck

    C series confusion

    My c 85 fenders are all broken up. I have a set of metal ones off a gt workhorse to put on after the go from grey to red. Not sure if I need to change the floor boards or not because of the height difference in the front edges of the 2 fenders

    C series confusion

    What would have been the purpose of going to a plastic rear fender set? All the other models around the same time frame kept the metal rear fenders?

    Mower blades

    I’m looking for a pair of mower blades for a 208-4. The blades measure 18 1/2 inches long and have a 3/4 inch hole

    C series confusion

    What tires are on the front of that, are those the Firestone’s?

    I never would have guessed that was a 2.5 gallon tank

    C series confusion

    Did they increase the tank size when the moved it under the seat? My 160 has it under the hood and it seems pretty small. Not sure how big it is but I would say it can’t be more than a gallon

    So they redesigned the same model during the production run.

    C series confusion

    I was just wondering what the difference was between the 2 c series tractors. I have a black hood c 85 and a c160. They look nothing alike but are both c series designations
