    1984 C195

    Found this one on Craigslist. As you guys know, the 84s with 3 point are getting harder and harder to find. This tractor is certainly not a show tractor, but it should make a good worker. The deck is solid and sounds o.k., but I'm not going to mow with this one. Over the years, I have purchased 5 C195s--one each in Missouri, Kansas, Illinois, Indiana, and Oklahoma. My wife says I have gone far enough, both figuratively and literally!

    Farm Auction find

    When I saw this tractor on a farm sale bill, I had to take a look. I have always liked the 417A, and this one is clean and has been well taken care of. I talked with the PO at the sale. He purchased it new on August 6th, 1986 and paid $3539.58 . He gave me all the manuals, tractor, mower, motor, parts breakdown, and other sales literature. It starts right up, no smoke, and runs like it looks. The tractor was this clean when I bought it, all I have done is load and bring home.

    Bronco 14 owners - help with hydraulic lift

    Trouty 56 - Thank you very much - that's what I needed!
  12. I have a Bronco 14 with the hydraulic lift kit in a box. I found online that the long hose coming from the cylinder goes to the back of the hydro. I could not tell from the picture where the short hose connects to the hydro. There are two plugs side by side on the top of the hydro - does the short hose connect to one of these plugs? Thanks for any help.

    Under a tarp - in a barn.

    Pullstart - the Bronco 14 is still on the trailer. I will post some pictures the first of the week. Jake - Since the decals have been replaced, the tractor has probably been repainted. I do know that the PO always stored the tractor in a garage or barn. I am going to ask him the next time we visit.

    Under a tarp - in a barn.

    This 551 has been under a tarp in a barn for the last 15 to 20 years. The PO bought the tractor new in 1961 and has had it every since - 54 years. I knew the tractor was there, but I had not seen it for at least 20 years. This past week he called and said it was time. We made the deal on this and a Bronco 14.. The 551 is missing the foot rests, has the wrong decals, and the fluid has worked over the front rims, but it has the correct H55D - 2113 -(serial 55209). The muffler and belt guard are both there and it looks to be in nice shape for tractor 54 years old.
