1971 Workhorse 800

Recommended Posts

I call this tractor "Mission Imposible" :thumbs: because it was restored in one weekend with my two nephews who were 12 and 14 at the time. Boy-O-Boy did those kids like seeing the blue flame shoot out of the exhaust stack when Uncle Bill was adjusting the carburetor! :thumbs:

Here is the "before" picture.

Here is the "after picture", I paid $50 bucks for the tractor from my local dealer.

We started at 7:15 saturday morning and put the key in the ignition 9:00 sunday evening to start it up!

This was my first Wheel Horse and the last one I will ever buy with a Tecumseh motor. Everytime I cut the grass something would break. Motor still ran when I parked her, but was smoking and knocking pretty bad. She's now a parts donor.
