A friend of mine ( who does foreclosure trash-out work) just picked up a submerged Case 195. I just invited him to join up, as he wants to restore his 195. Yes, it was UNDER WATER :shock: up to the bottom of the hood, so I'm told. He found some options on it that I have never heard of, and one I know existed but I think is rare.

Hydraulic impliment lift option

light and turn signal setup

rear output shaft drive pto

three point setup, not attached...may have been for something else

two foot dig depth post hole auger, also not attached.

The only one that I recognize is the impliment lift, which I have seen in sales ads pictures from when these machines were first made. The rest of the stuff I am guessing was custom built to work on the tractor when it was still in use. :headscratcher:

Anybody know anything about these options?

I don't need to see pictures in order to figure out what was done. There's nothing really new because it would be the exact opposite to what has already been proven to work when putting a snowblower on the front of an AG tractor and powering it by the rear 540 RPM PTO. On those, there is a sprocket that is splined to slide onto the PTO shaft that drives a chain which is wrapped around another sprocket lower down. That sprocket is connected to a series of drive shafts with U-joints on them just like you see on a long wheelbase truck chassis. Those shafts come all the way under the tractor to the front of it where another shaft connects to the snow blower.

On the 195, they would use a belt off of the front PTO clutch instead of a chain but the rest would be pretty much the same. The shaft would come to the back of the 195 so it was available to power the post hole auger. Naturally, at some point it had to be geared down. That could take place partially at the pulley selection at the front of the tractor and by way of a gearbox reducer at the auger head. No matter what, this is a mechanical nightmare compared to using hydraulics.

However, by all means .......... post the photos.

That's what was described to me. IF he takes some pics, I'll be sure to post them. We don't cross paths too often, but if I get a chance to take a look at it I'll take pics of my own and show you all the mess that was made of this machine.

Uh could we ask what it was doing under water, I mean I have gotten to close to my pond on a few occasions and once flipped a Wheel Horse on top of me in the pond and managed to keep from drowning... oh never mind I'll have a hard time explaining that one myself. :mrgreen:

My friend said he "pulled it out of a swamp with a pickup behind a foreclosed house" . Knowing the nature of swamps in W. Wa, they are dry in the summer and fill up about three to five feet in the winter months. I'd say that somebody was mowing, the thing quit, and it got left there. Just a guess, we will probably never know. If you see a new member under "Paul" or "York" or "engineprof" those are usually his screen names. I don't think he's joined here yet, but I'm sure he will soon. Best I can do is tell you all that next time I see him I will ask more, try to ge pics.
