Another What Is It ?

Recommended Posts

OK, I know it's an open end wrench, but I'm sure it has a specific use.     Flywheel nut,  crankshaft lock,  ????  5aa724a9162a1_IMG_0001(1).JPG.9e6817455e97a32c2b631256eeaca722.JPG

Fits the hex fitting on the mower spindles, can't remember the year but some had that big hex.

OK, now we know what it was designed to be used for and what it could also be used for.

Now, how rare is this wrench?

Isn’t that one of the ‘thin’ Wheel Horse wrenches especially designed/made to fit the nut above the blades on decks like the late 80s early 90s 42” SD? For removing these blades for sharpening, etc.

They aren't too rare. Several are listed on Ebay and I know of a member here that had several for sale. Definitely handy but really not much of a wrench with the skinny handle. I had one before the Florida move but opted to mill down the open end of a combination wrench to do the job now. :)

The wrench was given to me by my neighbor yesterday.  He purchased it at an auction on Saturday.   

Guess I better go plow his driveway this morning.    We got about 4" last night.

 

Thanks for all the info.

Ebay, $20.00 - 40.00. Got one, keep it in the truck tool box, use it to change the hitch ball.
