    Predator Swapped C-161 is a BEAST

    Chains are definitely a difference maker. I just moved to a new home with a concrete driveway and am concerned that my chains wi. damage the cement. I will likely pick up some rubber chains if I can get a source. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Congratulations!! I retired two years ago and one of the hardest questions to answer is, what do you do every day? I just say it's like every day is a Saturday or vacation and I do whatever feels right. Love the freedom that comes with retiring!
  3. I heat a 32 x 44 two story barn with wood at my farm/ hunting property. Love the wood heat and I have an abundance of wood to burn. My house has a three car garage with a natural gas heater installed. We are just moving into it so I have not spent a winter in it yet but I look forward to using it shortly.

    Very nice looking machines. You should have no problems with thinning your herd!

    Hello, new owner here.

    Just reading your post from several weeks ago. That is quite a haul of goodies with the C160. Assuming you got it all home and putting it to work.

    Wiring Harness 414-8

    Is this harness still available?
  11. My "Horse Hauler" is a single axel trailer with 3500# axel. I noticed recently that the tires are wearing bad on the inner half of the tread leading me to believe that I have a bent axel, perhaps from hauling firewood last fall. Does anyone have any experience with correcting the issue or should I be shopping for a new axel?

    60" deck

    Wow, that's amazing. I saw two 520's with decks sell at an auction a couple of months ago. I have a few too many projects now and they were pretty rough; I just stood there and watched as the one that ran sold for $375 and the other one that didn't run went for $75. I sure wished I would have bid on them, if nothing else a parts tractor for someone.

    60" deck

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I didn't think it would work either. There is a guy wanting to swap a 60" for a 48" and seeing that I have a couple 48's I thought I would ask the question. As far as seat time, my wife does most of the mowing with her Dixie Chopper, but I get a fair amount of seat time at my farm with a C160 hydro. It really does an amazing job on the fringe areas and even opening up deer trails.
