I hope you had some help manhandling the pieces and parts in place. I know it sure will help with the snow duty.

It all depends, the past 8 years here the first 5 had bigger snows as I went from single stage to 2stage blowers on the 520s then a having a blade and blower ready, to the last couple years just using the blade, but I will have them both for this rig ready if needed, I'm getting lazier the older I get, but the WHs aren't going anywhere anytime soon either. And yes that blade as heavy enough for dirt/stone work better than looking over your shoulders.

Yes for snow duty, unfortunately I seem to be a 1 man band as of late... Still haven't uncrated or drug the blower off the trailer yet. And cab is still in the box in the garage.

We barely get 1 to 2 inches a year here in Monroe, NC...and I NEED IT ! :lol::lol:

The only difference between men and boys is the price (and size) of their toys:lol::lol:

And with that I would have to have an enormous sand box !

I wouldn't have pics and vids of snow chucking if didn't snow decently over the years, some more than others, and even if I trade up a tractor size or 2 this set-up will fit so sorta like the WH era (BC34500).

Nice Gadgets Billy,

We have this year bit more snow than last Year.

Snowheight here also various.

Blade looks pretty Solid, time to get some Snow to play with.

Plow is 62" wide I haven't measured the height but I will say 22"+/-, and yes rears are loaded with methanol when I bought it, being somewhat steep here I think a bit extra weight the rear blade will help plus getting up to the garage door and pulling snow away from there. @Pollack Pete I don't suppose you have any action shots of yours during snow removal?

Yep now looking at it on a big screen and watching the vid the frame work looks very beefy.

The other day there was a post about having 2 tractors of the same year and model. I didn't think it was the place for my Massseys, even though they are red. I thought I could get by with putting them here.  (I guess I really should have started a new topic. Maybe a mod can move this)555838830_20180529_155336(2).jpg.0ef3ee0ae21b72ecb8b6b79513f81bb1.jpg

@Gregor, it's all good, I love my :wh:, but they aren't the only GTs, and those are when they made most if not all brands decent heavy duty machinces built for a lifetime if properly maintained.

There is a 68 Massey 12 I have my eye on but I dont know much about them or their worth. Seems like it is in decent shape. Comes with mower deck, plow, rear wheel weights and a " extra engine" .

!2 HP Tecumseh. According to many here, you are going to need that extra engine. :lol: I don't happen to feel that way. Hydro-static drive, but doesn't give anymore details. Sundtrand? Unless it's been totally redone and done well, I would say ~ $400 max. That's what I would pay around here anyway. Some people seem to think they have gold. Asking 7 - 15 hundred.

 

I should add...That being said, I wouldn't sell my MF 14's for anything...

@Achto and I got a buddy who is a MF collector and has a butt load of them. None that restoed tho :handgestures-thumbupright: as his are all pretty much originals and heavy workers. 

I grew up mowing on a early 70's Massey. High light of week back then was a mile of seat time to mow another property.

Up in this neck of the woods that tractor wouldn't fetch anything less than $500 on its worst day. The wheel weights alone are worth about $2 a pound...

I can't believe what what you have in Virginia. I am using a 1969 7hp Ariens snow blower in New England.

It's more of the adage the difference between boys and men , in my case the toys got bigger and more expensive, and my sand box got even bigger... now where I live I am stuck between two ridges of the Appalachian mountains (Blue Ridge and Shenandoah Highlands) along the I-81 corridor, up until the last 3 or years we have had at least 1 if not multiple 12"-24" snow events  per year even where I am originally from about 70 miles away home of the tallest peak (Spruce Knob) in WV, here's a few pics why I have and want the equipment... Last pic of me as a young lad of 7 or 8yo and we used that little 7hp CC original for many years ALL seasons. The video just shows what a 20hp opposed twin does with a rebuilt 2stage.

      For sale. 1981 WH C-175 Kohler twin series 1
       
      1. Tractor has brand new ag tires all the way around, brand new seat, new points and condenser, new rear blade quick attach bracket, lights have been rewired with LEDs, it has a brand new lift cable and bracket,seat pan is from a 410... it's surface rusted but at least it isn't busted up like the oem plastic one, starts and runs but smokes a bit on startup if it's been sitting for months but she runs smooth and strong.
       
      2. Tiller is like new. It had been used only about once when I bought it and now it has been used 4 times more. Tines still have much of the factory paint on them.
       
      3. 42" mower deck works perfectly, 4. snow blade was/ is rough but I repaired it so it is quite functional,
       
      4. Brand new rear grader blade,
       
      5. Wheel Horse brand plow,
       
      6. Wheel Horse brand disc- I added a piece of motorgrader blade for a drag. I also welded a post to the top to hold weights,
       
      7. Wheel Horse brand cultivator,
       
      8. Home built furrower. (Makes good rows)
       
      The original Wheel Horse plow/disc/cultivator originally came as a modular kit and in order to use it the draw bar and clevis hitch had to be swapped back and forth. (big pain) I fabricated draw bars and hitches onto each piece so this is no longer necessary.
      I think this is a fair asking price at  $1,800 for all. text (ate-oh-fore) too free nein - too oh too sevin

      Toro - WheelHorse SnowBlower fits “XT” Models.  Model 79483 Serial 240000164. In great shape, has high chute, wide kit installed and has belt.  Skids show little to no wear, so I’m guessing not used much.  SnowBlower only.  No mule drive or lifting hardware.  
      $250/BRO
