Hello from Kent UK 512-D owner

Recommended Posts

Hi all I’ve just acquired my first Wheel horse and it’s a 1986 512-D with the Robins Diesel engine from what I can see it was a one year only model into Europe. Any info anyone can give me would be great .

Welcome to the forum.

We do not have a whole lot on this model but there are 6 files.

Type "512-d" with quotation marks in the search box. Use the down arrow beside the box to select Files.

Welcome Scott, that big old lump of Robins Cast Iron should thump along forever in that :thumbs:.

If you need to replace the seat, just search online for Kab P2 Pan Seat, or if you want a cheaper 2nd hand one, search for  Atco Auto steer. Enjoy it !.

I was actually looking for a far older machine but this one popped up and because of it being fairly rare I grabbed it . I’m still going to search for an older project though 👍

They’re good workers, I’m currently restoring an RJ-58, one of only a few I know of in the UK

      Can any one tell me what this is, other than just a Wheel Horse? The identification badging is missing, unless I am missing where it may be. The engine is a 14 horse Kohler, it is a hydro (both drive and deck lift), but other than that I am not sure about year/ model/ type of hydro drive/ if the hydro drive is one I can tap into for other hydraulic attachments such as lifts (3 point), etc...
      Thank you in advance to all you WH guru's,
      Darren
       
      P.S.-Is there a good way to get the steering wheel off without breaking it as I have another good one on the machine next to it.

      Have  a C-81 with a 48" Snow Plow, the current Steel Bottom Scrapper  Blade  is on it's last season..... I have noticed as of late that quite a few folks are installing the POLY blades.....  I plow a 100' macadam driveway and my concern and/or question is how well and how DURABLE are these blade. I did install feet on my existing steel blade plow (see pics) to limit the normal wear.   Thanks for you input
