  1. The white overspray on the rear rim tells me it's probably not a quality paint job, just a quick rattle can spray bomb job done without much prep. I would be way less than $400. Maybe cut that in half even. Is one of the front tires off the rim/bead? Mike......
  2. Very nice!! Like you I could use some extra "out of the weather" storage room. Mike........
  3. Those lights are very bright! Shouldn't have any problem plowing at night. Mike......
  4. I'm going to be the wet blanket here....but I think $3600 is a bit steep. The '88 520's don't have the swept axle and are not as sought after nor worth what the swept axle models are. Are you sure about the snow-plow size? The biggest offered with a 520 was 48" unless someone made their own. My method of pricing out tractor packages is to assign a value to each piece. Here's what I came up with...keep in mind I have not seen pictures nor spoke to the owner to get the "story" on this tractor, only going by what you posted. Bare "straight axle" 520-H --- $600 48"deck ----$500 Blower -----$600 Plow w/axle bracket -- (55"??) --$300 Chains ---$60 Weights (rear, plastic) ----$80 Weights (front, plastic) ---$60 That's puts the package at $2200...if the weights are all official WH cast iron weights and not plastic the package is closer to $2400. If the guy has records (proof) of any services it has had AND is the original owner I think that ups the value as well. He does state "Or Best offer" so I would start with an offer of $2500. Just my opinion....Mike.......
  5. Dig into the Resto/Customization/Modification section and drool over what some of these guys are capable of. http://www.wheelhorseforum.com/forum/45-restorations-modifications-customizations/ Matts foot control is offered up in the classifieds (Vendor section) as well as everything else you might need and want (exhaust, brake linings, decals both stock and custom, clothing/hats). Mike.........
  6. Haha! Yep, cats are like that. Mine jumps into any spot just vacated on the couch (warm). Mike.....
  7. Never knew they made an all electric machine. Is it 4x4 or 4x2? Mike....
  8. That does not sound like a good time! I don't enjoy going to the dentist for a simple cleaning, cant imagine having all my teeth yanked out!! Mike......
  9. This is the vendor section Jerry. George is our newest vendor. Mike....
  10. I remember when my kids were young and a ride in the yard trailer being pulled by the WH was a treat!! But my son is almost 22 years old, 6'3"tall and about 215#s....those days are over!! Mike..............
  11. I hear ya....my motorcycle is "sleeping" in my basement. I would so rather be riding it than pushin snow!! Mike.
  12. Great video....thanks! Mike....
  13. I was home alone so no action shots...but my Ariens walk behind and my "mutt" GT-1600 handled it just fine. Mike....
