  1. Tractor finally with me here in Somerset, UK As far as I can tell she's very original. Belgium built, and from the model number I think a 1977 B-100 long frame (or C-100?) badged as a Raider 10 8-Speed. Runs well but muffler rusted out so I think she'll be getting a vertical stack soon, along with a lighting kit, and a service.

    Well, tractor is now home. I think from model number it is a 1977 B-100 (C-100?) badged as a Raider 10 8-speed. Runs well, but exhaust is pretty well shot, so a vertical stack is in it's near future, along with a lighting kit and a service

    Hi Jake Just wondering what shipping/handling cost would be to send one to the UK? Cheers

    Thanks very much. Yes, I'm definitely more of the oily rag school, it only has it's history once! I believe it also has an original pair of narrower rear wheels fitted with chevron tires (sic) so may also opt for some 3-rib fronts to suit "the look" if I can find a cheap pair of front rims.

    That sounds like a great drink Ed!! 🍻

    The farm workers in ancient Somerset would travel from farm to farm at harvest time & would be partly paid in cider produced on the farm itself, so the better the cider the more workers a farm could attract. There is also a fine tradition of 'rough' ciders, better known as scrumpy, which leads to your legs becoming disconnected from your brain after only a couple of pints (providing you could drink 2 pints! It sometimes had to be strained into the mug!! 😨) Cider is perhaps our best known gift to the world! http://www.madapplecidercompany.com/cider_facts.html

    Yes, sorry, Somerset UK, where REAL cider comes from!!

    Hi everyone, My name is Ian, and I'm a Wheel Horse newbie. I've just bought a Raider 10 8-speed on fleabay, but am still waiting to collect it due to circumstances beyond my control. I think it's a 1972 (ish) model and am itching to get it home and start playing! It has a roller with it, and a 42" (I think) side discharge deck. Have been studying the manuals and have read "From the Horses Mouth" to try and learn all I can about these fantastic little tractors. Hopefully I'll be able to post a few pictures soon! Best wishes and Seasons Greetings to you all !! P.S. photo of my Raider from fleabay

    Perhaps an even easier solution would be to weld a bolt mounted tow ball to the top of a 5/8" hitch pin after removing the loop handle?
