Priceless! My Dad used to pull us around on sleds on his first Wheel Horse he bought in 1960. I was 6. He brought the frontend up many times and even got tossed off a couple times but never got hurt. Wonderful memories brought back. Thank you for sharing.

I HAVE ONE MORE PICTURE OF THE RJ. I NEED TO TRANSFER TO A COMPUTOR. THAT TRACTOR IS LONG GONE NOW. MY FATHER TRADED IT IN ON A 1967 857, I WAS A TEENAGER THEN AND I RUIN IT. THEN HE TRADED IT IN FOR A 1975 B80 THAT I STILL HAVE. I PARKED IT AND BOUGHT A NEW 1982 SK486 THAT USE A LITTLE NOW FOR LEAF CLEAN UP. I USED 1999 314-8 NOW AND JUST BOUGHT A 2002 315-8 BECAUSE IT WAS NICE USED TRACTOR. I WILL POST MORE PICTURES MORE LATER.

Great pic, brings back memories when dad would pull me or I would pull my younger sister on a sled behind our 401 that dad had picked up used in the 70ies.
