    Had a sign left over from my old horse hauler just sitting around. Thought I should mount it up so I wouldn't get damaged. Sent from my tractor seat.

    Oh, you meant the tractor! I was like: "Wait a second! Steve is like 68 or 72 yrs (or something) old!"

    Nice. It looks a lot like what I did with my C-160, but I used some rectangular 55w Halogen lights. I thought it looked close to original.

    Hi all, I once made my own front and added led lights on project C4. This time it is project bendy in need of lighting and whilst I have a cast reflector, I thought hell...why not make the whole lot... I bought some really nice 12v led bulbs with reflectors knowing I could mount them quite easily. So out with a sheet of ally and a template Some 46mm holes and push them through Cut out a piece of lexan and add a new headlight sticker And here it is in place on bendy When the hood is painted I will mount it all properly

    They are saying it is a record snow in Chicago land...the 702 did great...bring it on. Some channels are saying it is the 5th biggest snow on record. This video was taken at the 1/2 way point of the storm.

    That little 702 did a great job and wasn't even working hard. Thanks for sharing.

    Great to see! It always amazes me to watch my neighbors with 18 to 20 horsepower lawn mowers that can't plow snow. And my 8 HP Wheel Horse pushing the snow all over the place. But I am jealous of the Hyd. system. My left arm gets a work out when I plow.

    You need a belt designed to withstand the reverse bending over a flat idler pulley. The more common fractional horse power (Fhp) belts are for use on low horse power electric motors but use the same numbering system and will not last. The Wheel Horse/Toro belt is # 8334 - Size B x 84.8" The green Gates # 6985 belt is a suitable replacement - Size 5/8" x 85" The same green Gates belt made for Napa # 5L850W - Size 5/8" x 85" Garry

    If the tow valve is stuck, use a crescent wrench to back off (out) the top nut several turns. The whole valve comes out, then cleaned it up refit it.

    That 702 was a snow moving machine in the video. The hydraulic lift is the "cats meow"! Thanks, and keep it up north!!

    Kiotiken: What you need is an RJ or Suburban "ball burner"/ "nut roaster" ! The heat off the motor will run right up to your beard~! Probably easier and cheaper to find than a CAB too! Plus - it's just a lot more fun!

    I thought about this! But at the same time, it feels wrong to put a Kohler on a work horse! It's the whole reason it was called a work horse, because it didn't have a Kohler like all the others. It's the one thing keeping me back from thinking about doing that.

    According to the paper work that I have...the Raider 8 was only made in 1972. Model # 1-0330...Kohler 8 hsp engine # K181S-30461D...8 speed Wheel Horse transmission # 5086. (4 pinion differential with 1" axles). Welcome to Red Square With the 10 hsp Kohler in it, you might as well call it a 1972 Raider 10...model # 1-0301...the trans is the same. Here is a picture of my 1972 Raider 10...

    Good news today, I was able to get my current shed moved to my neighbors yard. Now I am able to have my new shed built without the city getting bent out of shape. It took seven men, three hours, six pizzas and two cases of Bud lite. No humans were injured or killed during the move.

    I love all of Bobs creations, but I gotta say that that one (with the big wheels) gets me all hot and bothered,,,

    Whats up everybody, alot of you guys kind of already know a little bit about this project. There comes a time of when you can do things and finally its has come to life as we know it. It moves, runs fantastic. Kind of like excited if you know what I mean. Anyways I am not computer oriented so if I don't succeed at this I am pretty sure that Bob will get it straightened out. Well here goes.

    I listed the 520-H a while back on this site for sale. There was no one interested. I loaded the 520 on the trailer and decided to take it to my house from the farm and list it on E-bay. While I was going home I rationalized.....hey what's wrong with 3 tractors at home. I must have at least 1/3 of an acre lot. And it has to take at least 30 minutes to clear the drive of snow. My wife was at the farm a few weeks ago and saw 4 WH in my shed plus 2 at home. She said do you really need 6 tractors? I didn't have a good response. Well I made room in the garage and all 3 fit. She doesn't know that I'm always trying to make more room! I'm not going to totally restore it. I'm going to have the tins bead blasted and repainted. I'll do the rims eventually. Hopeully I'll have it done before the snow flys. It has a cab too! I'll post pictures of the progress. I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions also.
