Iseki TX-2160 HST 2WD (Same as TX-1500 and Bolens 187)
Posted by Chris on 08/03/2012
This has been the best purchase in my entire life. I bought this 1987 model in 1994 with 640 hours. I sold it in 2012 for the same money that I bought it for. I would not hesitate to recommend if the price is right. I had the 2WD model, but if I could go back I would definitely get a 4WD instead.
Model year: 1987
Date Purchased: 01/10/1994
Number of Hours: 2200

Originally I bought this tractor with a mid mount Caroni mower of 1200mm. The mover rotted away in 2000. I replaced it with a rear mount rear discharge Caroni of 1500mm (59"). Since then the poor Mitsubishi K3b engine had to work real real hard, but this engine is indestructible.
