  1. hi men, a few years ago i helped a co-worker acquire a C160 with a tiller. i did my best to rig a hardware store system to lift the tiller. any way my co-worker reported that the tiller was leaking. i picked the tractor up and when i got it home i realized this old tractor needed some additional maint. both axle seals were leaking. so i pulled the hubs and replace those. the brake band seal was leaking so i replaced that. oil change, air filter and fuel filter for the kohler. grease all the zerks. then i replaced the tiller seals. next, i installed one of lowells rear rockshaft kits. WOW! fits perfectly. the tiller now has plenty of travel to till deep. yet, still when fully raised up it has plenty of ground clearance for traveling back to the garage. the quality of the hardware in his kit is first class. not exactly cheap price but, you get what you pay for in this life. hope this helps you guys mike in mass.

  7. ? on demise of Wheel horse

    hi cpete1, all the previous answers are spot on. back in 2007 the last classic wheelhorse (315-8) with a deck was $4500. at my dealer. not many sold. most people went to the big box stores and bought a "riding mower" which they thought was a tractor. little did they know. they thought that they got a real bargain spending $1000-$1500. i'm a horse-a-holic and i cannot convince the average guy that these little red tractors are worth their weight in gold. its a real shame. regards mike in mass.
  8. Ditch embankment mower

  9. hi greyghost, i got the por15 products at my local carquest auto parts store. regards mike in mass.
  10. hello sir, welcome to red square. wheelhorse tractors are addictive....... don't ask how i know. seems a little high on the price since one has a non running engine. without a running engine you cannot test the hydro rearend on the bronco. our beloved little tractors are real powerhouse's you can do many chores around your new property. seat time is always good. however they are not super quick mowers compared to modern day zero turns. best of luck mike in mass.
  11. hi men, i see on some cabs there is a provision for the manual lift arm. some cabs look like they are only set up for a hydraulic lift tractor. are there 2 styles of cabs? thank you mike in mass.
  12. love the exhaust work! tractor looks great. nice job. mike in mass.
