Hi I am a first time Wheel Horse owner. It has the front plow and the AC-6 cultivator attachments. My guess is that it was the recipient of a DIY restoration in the late 1990's but not certain, based on the darker red, B&S engine and newer tires. Runs and drives perfect, everything works awesome.

I need a trailer for it if anyone wants the cultivator.

:text-welcomeconfetti:. Nice horse!!!  Looks like it might have a seat off of something else.  Does it have a stick supporting it in back?  Well worth $400.  Looks to be a 58 or 59 - someone who knows more than me will chime in soon.  Would love to have the cultivator, but you're just a little too far away.  Congrats - you'll love it!!!

Obviously, I am not an expert but I think its orginal...just tired or the prior owner was country fed. There is a pipe supporting it from the bottom. I am always internet horse trading, you will never know what I can fit into a Priority Flate Rate box ;) . A trailer would be a tuff move though, I think I will just keep an eye on the local ads and hopefully find something with the slot hitch and make it work. 

Can anyone tell me what the right side clutch pedal was used for? Currently it is floppy, not hooked onto anything. My guess was a mower deck?

I think it is to engage the PTO, for decks, and anything else driven by the engine

That pedal is used to release the index pin in the dozer blade so you can swivel it from the seat. A rope is draped over the hood and attached to the top corners of the blade so you can pull it after releasing the pin. "Old School"

Pedal connects to the pin with a small chain.

Use a piece of 1/2" thick flat steel about 8 inches long with two 1/2" holes, one in each end to fit inside the slot hitch. One hole gets pinned into the hitch and the other is used to attach the trailer.

yes

I will get a picture of it for you guys that are curious. The weird part is that there isnt a different color paint under it where it is slightly torn. Could the maroon be original?

Can you still read the number? 

Remade sticker? Or is this what your tractors look like?

Looks like an original decal...

and a few signs of factory paint exposed underneath it.

Vinylguy (Terry Dennis)   who is a decal vendor on Red Square makes a replacement  Serial Number decal  if you are interested in one.

I'm curious, did you ever try to try to un-crinkle the foil and see if you can get the 5th digit of that serial number?

      I'm looking for an RJ-58 transmission mushroom gear and bull gear matching set OR either an 11 tooth mushroom gear or and old style bull gear. I have an 8 tooth and a newer style bullgear now. also a left side tranny cover for an RJ-58. Let me know what you have and price. Thanks

      This is my RMR-32 that I use on my RJ-58. The deck and RJ were purchased new together by my grandfather.
       
      It's painted with valspar's IH red tractor and implement paint from a rattle can instead of the single stage ppg paint in IH-50 that I use on my other Wheel Horse stuff. This way it's an easy (and cheap) touch up job when I slam it into a fence post.
       
      All original hardware. No new nuts, bolts, washers, grease fittings, or gears. Just new bearings, cotter pins, and some old sickle blades my grandfather must have had laying around way back when.
      Not a bad kitchen table centerpiece!

      Check it out!  I found this RJ today as a lawn ornament. I knocked on the door and the guy ended up selling it to me for $200 with a plow and mower deck in awesome shape and all the manuals and receipts and even spare parts! I couldn't believe it. Hood has been repaired but its not destroyed, no muffler guard (typical), but its the original engine, belt guard, serial # sticker. Attachments are in remarkable shape compared to what I've seen. The skid shoes on the plow aren't even worn. Heres a couple pics, Ill take more tomorrow.

      Good morning Wheel Horse experts!
       
      I have a gentleman that is interested in purchasing my 312-8 because the hydro rear end went in his 70's vintage charger 12. He'd like to be able to use the existing attachments he has with the 312 and asked me if I knew if they were compatible. I did a little searching and couldn't find a clear answer so I thought I'd defer to you guys. Will he be able to use his charger 12 attachments with a 3 series tractor(mower deck, plow blade, etc.)? Or are they not compatible. I know c series attachments are compatible but not so sure about the charger tractors. Thanks!
