Greetings from VA

     The 300 series are very popular for many reasons.Out of curiosity when did WH switch from the 1" axle to the 1 1/8" axle  on the 300 series? Rexemouse has said that his dumpster find 300  had 1 1/8" axles..I like the idea of the beefier transaxle but the 300 series seems tobe easier to come by than the 400 series I would like to know which years have the heavier axles.Thanks in advance.JAinVA

Go to any Toro parts seller online such as ProPartsDirect.net, put in the part number for a 1-1/8" axle  #5961, and do a search. It will reveal all models that used that axle. Your 300 series machine will be listed with model ID and year.

      Will a 36" side discharge deck off a C-121 fit the 300 series tractors?

      Just thought I'd post my new (used) 2000 314-8 I found at a local dealer, only has 215 hours, with a 42" RD deck in excellent shape. This makes the 5th one for my herd.  Looking forward to mowing next year with this instead of my SK 482.

      Can someone do a quick measurement for me? I need measurements of the front hub dust covers/grease cups used on most of the Wheelhorse Tractors. (300, 400 500 & C-Series)

      I don't have one on my bench anymore and the one I wanted to measure on my C-175 won't budge and I don't want to ruin it just to measure. I have none on four of my machines and I'm tired of the crap they pick up.
       
      I need the Inside Diameter
      The Outside Diameter
      The Depth or length

      Didn't see anything on the dimensions while searching the site.

      Thanks in Advance!

      Tom, one of the owners of Boyden & Perron of Amherst, MA, the Master Toro/Wheel Horse dealer who sold me my 1998 314-8 Wheel Horse Garden Tractor came out in the middle of a snow storm, at night, after a full day of work,the night before Thanksgiving to fix my tractor when it broke down after 30 feet of snow blowing. Turns out, when I got out of the cab, I kicked the gear shift which caused the safety switch to turn off the engine - as expected. I'm a big guy and new to the more compact nature of the WH controls and the confines of a snow cab.
       
      Apparently, when that happened, the magnetic part on the gear shift broke off. I'm new to wheel horse and had no idea and since I only had the tractor for just shy of 24 hours and I was standing in the dark in the snow with now way to get my car up the driveway (it's a Honda and doesn't like steep grades and snow - both describing my driveway), I gave them a call figuring he could walk me through some stuff on the phone. He did but none of it helped, so to my surprise he came out.
       
      Unfortunately, when he got to my house, because it was dark and snowing and the mailbox is in between my driveway and my neighbors and a bit confusing, he chose the wrong driveway and being even steeper than mine and not plowed, he slid off into a ditch. He than walked over to my house to get my tractor working again (we jumped out the gear shift switch) and then he called a co-worker to get him home. Unfortunately, he had driveways to plow with that tuck and couldn't get it out until Thanksgiving.
       
      Some time on Thanksgiving morning, when he came to get his truck out, he delivered my tractors bagger tube that got left behind when he delivered the tractor. I felt SOOOOO bad for Tom but that just speaks volumes about the level of service you get from Boyden & Perron! I can't recommend them enough!
       
      Here's a video of the poor guy testing out the tractor to make sure all was ok (and probably to kill time waiting to be picked up).
