Wheelhorse 702 or 855

Recommended Posts

Which would you choose if you could only buy one?

Both need work but thats not what I'm considering

They are both very good tractors and both have good strong kohler engines. It’s a hard choice to make. I would go with 702 though just because I like round hoods. That’s my :twocents-02cents:

Also :WRS:

Holy Cow...your asking to make a choice between the world's best Round Hood and the world's 1st short frame square hood??  :bow-blue:

 

Here is how I handled this situation.  I have a 702 AND 2 short frame square hoods...an 857 and an 876.  :occasion-xmas:  The only answer to this question...you have to go get both of them.  Then you will have your favorite 7 hp Kohler and your favorite 8 hp Kohler at the same time.  :handgestures-thumbupright:

Amen to that ^^^^. I couldn't possibly put it better. I let one 854 and an 876 go, a mistake I will not make again either.

If you're going to actually use it for doing work, 855.

I would go with the 702. I have had several of them and still currently have a stock and modified 702. The 702 has always done every chore I needed it to and a little more. Also they just look AWESOME! Everyone loves the look of a old round hood, weather it be fresh paint or a nice patina.

Don't be fooled about the 702...the only thing different from the 855...the 855 has better steering and 1 more horse.  Other then that...the 702 will get you a ton more thumbs up while mowing or moving snow...or just going around the block.

I hate to make decisions. If you don't get both you will regret it later!

Exactly why IMO the 855 is a better worker. A 702 needs about a 1/2 acre of space to make a 180* turn without backing up. You'll almost be going around the block every time you need to turn around. :ychain:
