  1. Fun with a Sawall

    I use a Hackzall as my go to tool! Just a miniature sawsall, but portable!
  2. Vermont wheel horse

    JAMS, I am in Colchester and have all the implements you mentioned and know what is needed for each and how they are installed. Let me know if the manuals are not enough Welcome to Red Square
  3. I've lost power

    Also check the idler gear for the drive belt. It should spin smoothly without a wobble. Toro 7473 is one of the numbers for it (bought one two days ago when i replaced my C-165 drive belt for the same problems. Works great now!
  4. Newbie with 414-8 questions

    to A front mower is a rare implement! Usually used to mow without front tire grass knock down stripes. I also like the grader attachment!
  5. C-145 A drive belt size?

    Thanks! I went with a 108501 WH belt. I believe the one manual I found on RS said they were 81.5 inches.
  6. I blew a drive belt on my 1983 C-145 hydro and the belt measured 82". I looked up the correct belt and have seen many different sizes called out. Is 5/8" x 81" correct? Is 5/8" x 81.5" correct? or Is 5/8" x 82" correct? I also saw 98" using the same wheelhorse number???? Any help would be appreciated, Thanks!
  7. 1992 520H price for used

    It might be there to help remove the pin in use for the engaging lever. It is also good to have a spare hanging around too.
  8. Looking to buy my 1st wheel horse

    If the motor ran 10 years ago and you can turn it by hand, you should be able to save it. Since this is in the deep south it probably has not seen freezing temps much. I would go for it! Welcome to Red Square!
  9. Lost power

    Vey nice! Is this a WH unit? Looks like something I need to build or find!
  10. Looking for a 50" grader blade and misc parts

    Need a few parts to complete a rear mount 50" grader. 1) grader blade 92-6317 2) Assembly Latch Handle R 113155 3) Link Latch 113156-01 Please let me know if you know where I can find a blade, the other parts I can buy new if I have to. Thanks! Randy
  11. Where's The Snow?

    Went Skiing today at Smugglers Notch in Vermont. The only snow is a thin strip down the mountain. We need snow!!!!! The C165 has been sitting with the plow on and the C145 with the blower and cab for the last month and a half....
  12. Quick 500 mile run

    Nice score! I like the rear weights. Are they WH?

  14. What was your first wheel horse?

    My first WH was a 257H with many implements and used it for 15 years to mow and plow snow. Then I was at a dealer getting parts and picked up a derelict C145 Hydro with a 42in deck and a snowblower for $100. Then I found a C165 8sd for a bit more. Well you know ….
  15. Ethanol Fuel.... JUNK JUNK JUNK

    I guess I am lucky. I have over 8 stations within 5 miles that sell non-ethanol gas. I use it in all my tractors, 2 strokes, boat and my cars. Costs more , but works fine lasts a long time. I use to travel alot and would fill up with real Hi test gas and get 33 mph interstate. I noticed on the return trips after filling up with 10% ethanol Hi test would only get 29 mph and have to down shift on hills due to lack of power. This is a great site to get the locations of about 10,000 stations that sell real gas. http://pure-gas.org
