Hi everyone. Newbie to the forum here and newbie to Wheel Horse. Just picked up a 310-8 about an hour from home off Craigslist. She runs and drives and makes the snow blower spin. Came with side and rear discharge decks, snow blower, chains, wheel weights, and the mule drive (thanks Walt!) I'll be lurking around and searching the forums for info, but if there's anything anyone wants to share I'd be glad to hear it.
Good Snowy morning! Lurking newbie to the forum. I know Redpaul does not seem very original for a moniker but I come by it honestly. I live in Redford Michigan, I drive a Red Ford Pick-up, I went to college at the University of Nebraska (Go Big Red), and most important I have 3 red horses. Also you may have guessed that my favorite color is red. You're wrong its purple, but I'm not perfect. I proudly own and spend happy seat time on an Onan powered 416 with a 48" SD deck. The sound of this tractor almost brings me the same response as the sound of my '69 Firebird 400 did back in 1983 BM (Before Marriage). I also have a plow blade which is going to work on the first few inches of snow in about an hour. I own, and hide under a tarp, a complete but trashed C101 with an RD deck, and a 12-38 XL with a frozen engine. I am going to rebuild the 12-38 for my grandson and grand daughters. By the time it's done they will be old enough to drive it. The C101 is for my wife so she could help mow and maintain 1.75 acres of grass and trees (Yeah right!) She said I can keep the old "lawn mowers" for myself. She is another work in process. I have very much enjoyed the information that is offered here. I know as I get into my project horses I can count on expert help and I hope I can start adding insight for others with the same developing or well developed addiction. I will post pictures but I am having problems rounding up the herd into one spot. I have a Catahoula Cur (AKA Catahoula Leopard Dog) which is a breed used for herding hogs. I guess that hogs are all they will herd as he is scared to death of my horses and no help at all. Now to my first question: Has anyone had any luck straightening out the ribbed section of a 400 series hood? Previous owner like to get drunk and show off his expensive toy, however; do to severe whiskey-vision he had a tendency to run into trees, bushes, his deck... pretty much anything that couldn't run away. (According to his ex wife who sold me the machine) Question #2: I need an idea for a cup holder for the 416. Obviously WH did not ask for guidance from the Doge Van guys (9 cup holders +) when figuring out the operator ergonomic niceties. I need a place for a cold adult beverage in the summer and an Irish coffee in the winter. Oh wait ..... whiskey vision, white out conditions, mailbox post....
