Wheelhorse 416-8 with electrtic dump bucket and snowblower. Machine is in great shape!!! Motor was rebuilt at 900 hours and runs perfect. The machine has served me well and will be a great addition to someone who needs a true garden tractor with plenty of power. The snowblower is amazing for clearing driveways. It clears a 42 inch wide path down to pavement. Awesome machine. If your looking to save your back from lifting and moving wheelbarrows around filled with mulch and other lawn and garden items you will be very pleased to have the bucket!! With all the snow we have gotten over the past few years the addition of the front mounted snowblower is a must!! This is not a cheap lawn mower! its basically a small farm tractor and was used as such. I purchased this machine without a deck for mowing so do not ask for a deck. They are easy to find on ebay and craigslist if you want one but this machine is better suited as a tractor not a mower! It will also come with the rear wheel weights pictured, an extra rear tire, a pair of tire chains and a small rear mounted wooden bucket to add wait. This machine has served me well my only reason for parting ways with it is the larger machine I have recently inherited so i need the space.
She throws it pretty far! I'm trying to decide what I like more. Pushing or throwing. Throwing is cleaner for sure, pushing seems faster. I need to re assess with a foot or more of snow. I really like this setup, the only thing I don't like is the heavy steering. Seems like I'm going to break the steering gearbox! https://goo.gl/photos/FZW5sqHG8Uru1ja76
Question is, Is the rear fender also mounted on springs or rubber somehow? I know the seat has springs but the whole rear fender assembly on mine wiggles as if its sprung also. I haven't had the time to tear into it to look further and figured someone here would know!

First off I would like to say this is a great forum, heaps of information, helpful people and respect for machinery! This is the story of my Horse, it was traded in at work on a new machine (not sure what the customer bought but in my opinion they got the raw end of the deal), I was immediately interested in it as I have seen a lot of lawn tractors but nothing like this before, it was in a sad and sorry state it did not run but the panels were all straight and was complete. I got it home and replaced the battery and checked over the engine, it cranked and started once primed, the sound of the Onan roaring to life is amazing. I have done some cleaning on it, polishing the hubcaps makes it stand out, they are not perfect but look good still! My intent is to give it a good clean, fix anything that is on the way out or missing.
I am currently tossing up having to repaint some areas around the pump and bonnet, I know since it is after 1990 'Toro Red' is the preferred colour over Rust-Oleum Regal Red, what is everyones thoughts?
And here is some pics!
Love at first sight!
After its clean (looking good)
Getting down and dirty (Probably the heaviest engine i have had to move)
Yummy, frequent cleaning would have prevented this (and a air blower would help)
After its clean!
Will keep you all posted!
