I know of another c-160 in the southern third of Ohio. I just bought too many tractors recently, or i would jump at it.   Rules against posting it here , however. 


I am looking to thin out a couple two or three machines myself, but the deals keep me going the other direction! :D

Same here, I am out of garage space and now they're beginning to congregate outside!  It is hard to impossible to say no to a WH in the double digit price range.

Kevin, I'm really excited to see close up pictures after you get that baby picked up next week! I'm most curious to know what that Clinton engine/spec # is to confirm it's original and jives with the trend data @rj35hunter (Clay) has educated me on and we've been documenting together. 

 

Congrats again! I think it's especially cool that you now have both the original Pond made Ride-Away Junior and Senior - that's a really special, historically significant set in my opinion.

Nope nope nope... :rolleyes:

 

Mods said no politics... :naughty:

 

I was referring solely to the fact that my garage looked fat with The WHrat WHrecker in it and @pullstart “needed” a Black Hood to round out his herd... :handgestures-thumbupright:

Nice!

 

What’s up with that tractor train?!?!? Don’t tell me the SL&WHN RR has some local competition...! 

You better get over there and buy that engine, looks like he has a coal car to.  You won't have any competition if you buy it all up. Think of it as an up grade your just a big kid  and it will be a lot more fun. .

I picked this up, just stopping for some lunch!  Wendy’s pretzel bun beer cheese spicy chicken Sammy!  Yum!

 

The brothers who sold the property were there, they told me stories that their dad bought it new and let the kids ride it around in circles in the living room until mom told them there were too many fumes in the house!

Home safe and sound, with 10 minutes to leave for Girl Scout Cookies!

 

Good thing I started to add another 12’ of racking last night...

This wasn’t even the best part of my day!  @ACman Jeff, it was great spending a couple hours with you today!  Your 520 and 1057 sounded great!

Thanks for the Clinton info! I'm happy to confirm that's the original engine and indeed a 1956 Wheel Horse spec engine. I'll add it to our registry next week and let you know where it falls with the others recorded. 

 

I'm thrilled for you; such a great find there!

I decided having this since November 12 and never playing with it, it was time.  It needs a carb float unstucking as it floods all over, but it runs great!
