C 160 information

Recommended Posts

FAST41

Hello, my son recently bough 2 Wheel Horse tractors. The C 160 is total hydraulic. Just wondered if many of these models were sold?AD60F8CC-0A28-416C-BA03-0B70C4E08AA3.jpeg.bf543d0136a68d4a95abb44d20fd80c3.jpegFAD7EF5C-3776-4FEF-A6CA-CCF660BDD11B.jpeg.3e20ad9379f4aaaf86c1a539f0abe304.jpegAD60F8CC-0A28-416C-BA03-0B70C4E08AA3.jpeg.bf543d0136a68d4a95abb44d20fd80c3.jpeg

Your son has a great find there. 

The C160 is considered a holy grail tractor for many folks. 

 

I don't know if there were ever production volume numbers published. 

There are certainly many of them as hydros.

C-160 is one of the strongest tractors, reliable...

              powerful Single Kohler made in my opinion...I have one, will never part with it.. BEAST of a machine

Agreed. 

I have 4 C160s. 

2 Kohlers, 2 Tecumseh engines. 

The Kohlers are one each of manual and automatic. 

Both excellent.

I have a C160-A (like yours) and a C161-8 you cannot beat them. They are bullet proof tractors. As long as you keep up with maintenance they will run forever. The K341 is the best engine put in a Wheel Horse in my opinion. 
 

They aren’t too common like a 312 or a 520-H but they aren’t super rare. Amazing tractors though.

I forgot to mention.... my C-160 has a Jim Kemp stack...and it thumps like nothing you have ever heard......Super sound..  Time to put on another coat of wax !!!

 

     .I firmly believe the 16HP Kohler is underrated @ 16 HP..   :bow-blue:

I had the C-161, early one before they turned into " blackhoods" Many call them the "Cadillac" of Wheel Horses. I removed the shaker mounts and was glad I did.

Looked long and hard for my C-160 Hydro with hydro lift. Put a sleeve hitch on that thing and it will do anything I ask of it! My favorite tractor. Its a beast like my 416-8! You will enjoy it!
