702 Tow Truck Tractor

Recommended Posts

Necesity is the mother of invention and here is living proof. With too many Wheel Horses in my yard it became apparent that I need to get them moved around easly when they were not running so a "A" type framed towing set up was made out of 1 inch square tubing. Then a boat winch was bolted to the frame with the cable hooked to a peice of bar stock placed in the slot hitch. The bar stock has "underlift" type hooks with a pivot so manuvering with a tractor hooked on the back could be done. This set works real well and will pull any Wheel Horse from a RJ-35 to a C series with no problem. The 702 was pulled out of the woods then tuned up and with the carburetor rebuilt and running ever since.

Another action shot.

Traction is unbelievable with a tractor on the back as it has towed a Wheel Horse through mud 6 inches deep and the old Kohler 161 7hp has more then enough power to get the job done!
