    Did a little TLC on the 855 today. it had duals when I bought it but I had to take the outers off to load. the inter was 8.5 x 12 and the outer was a 6 x 12. also found out the inters were not loaded so I had a pair of loaded 6 x 12 so I put both sets on and some hub caps I had laying around. also put a more comfortable seat on. still got to put some counter weight on back & clean up

    I have never had any problem. I have shipped with them three times. Once I initiated the paperwork, the other two times it was started by the receiving party. I used the link that Craig posted above, and within hours I had a quote or an inquiry to clarify details. The only time that I had an issue was when I wanted to send something to Denver, Co. They are too busy at the Colorado locations to take 3PL shipments. Must be all that marijuana.

    Just wanted to show off my new Toy. I think it's my fathers day gift. It was at a auction today. Wasn't going to go because I didn't think I could afford it but my dear sweet wife said you never know & told me to go anyway. It's a 855 with a Freeman Pony Loader.

    Aldon I myself think you got a deal on that tractor. I also feel I got a deal from Ken on my C175. But somehow I know this guy made money!!! I just haven't figured out how!

    Well it's been awhile since I dust these beauties off. Between remodeling my house,landscaping,Working 2 jobs and chasing my 1 year and 3 year old around today I had some time to get some of my wheel horses out. The 3 cream puffs have less then 300 hours on them each and time to work them a little. Anyways wash and clean.

    I got the news that my blood counts have stabilized and I wouldn't need another transfusion today. After seven units of blood and three units of platelets since Thursday this was very good news for me.

    I thought I ought to start a thread to show progress with my rescue horse. It is a 1972 800 3 speed that was destined to go to scrap. It seems that a number of people had had a go at it and given up without ever getting to the bottom of the problem. As the coil appeared to be missing I was guessing a lack of spark might be in there somewhere. Well the coil turned up in amongst the leaves in the gap under the rear mudguards on top of the transaxle. I took it and the battery to the workshop. The battery turned out to be U/S so (new one on order). I tested the coil and it sparked as it should. This afternoon I had a bit of time so I whipped the points off, they were pitted....(new points and condenser on order), for now I have just tickled them up a bit, gapped them and connected all the bits up. I rigged a starter battery and turned it over.... I have a nice fat spark! There is no fuel in the tank so I need to take mrs Rog out shopping later... I will get some fuel and video my first try at a start up, I will be back

    I needed a new push mower since my old one completely rusted out around the rear wheels. I had looked into a string trimmer mower, and while very handy for trimming, not much for what I needed (thank you all for the feedback on that). Well, today I found a big box by the garage. It's a new Toro and self propelled! I am used to the very cheap mowers which take some effort, but this one is like driving a Lincoln after getting out of a Yugo! Grass is too wet to mow, but I was able to use it around the steep hills by the pool and it worked great! So happy having the self propelled.

    NO Problem! Take it for a ride with your son too! Actually, ANYONE who asks is more than welcome to take her for a spin. Very simple centrifugal clutch drive so just put it in gear, hit the gas and go. This one doesn't pull wheelies like the last one, bunch of added weight up front this time. Don't worry about anything breaking either, it's still under warranty!

    I dont have a part # or measurements handy Buzz, but it is a commonly available bushing. McMaster Carr should have one, and I am fairly sure I have bought one from Tractor Supply as well.

    Uh Oh, I had my canopy rip to shreds down there a few years ago from the wind during some of those isolated T-storms. Kind of funny now but it wasn't at the time it was happening! Just hoping for the best at this point since I'm going no matter what the weather is going to be. Me and Saltywright were just kicking back talking at the last Zagray show when a small gust came up quick out of nowhere and shot my canopy straight up 90* against my van. That one was kind of funny when it happened because we were so surprised!

    I have used Fastenal 3 times and have had pretty good luck. Once they shipped something to my buyer that I didn't send and there was confusion there, but they did get the correct item to my buyer...Always wondered who was missing another red part though! I used the 3rd party web address that Craig posted and get a response within 24 hours. Had lots of quotes but not all sales were made.

    @zieg72 I find that most of the clerks in the store don't even know what 3PL shipping is. All the managers should. @squonk If you have trouble with the help in the store, call Fastenal's toll-free number. There is a store liaison who will address the problem. I had a clerk laugh at me when I asked for 1/4-20 x 1" dog-point set screws. Then she said "oh no, we don't have whatever that is". I looked around, and when I came back to the counter with what I was looking for, she was a bit embarrassed. She no longer is employed there.

    My introduction to Wheel Horse began in the summer of 1997, immediately following high school graduation. I worked at Howard's in Coudersport (former Tucker's) until November of that year. I assembled new units, and did maintenance & repair on Kubota, Wheel Horse & Ski-doo equipment. I remember seeing pictures of the 520xi that fall. If I recall, we got one unit in the fall just before I left. I always thought they were pretty neat. Well I got one last week in ROUGH shape. So far I got it un-stuck ( motor was ceased) & running well. I have some questions on this machine, and after reviewing several sites & pages, this looks to be the best "spot" For "street cred" I have attached a link to my shop video. Karl J. Crowell (say Kroll) Cheers ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gsPayJAGZU

    Neighbor was trimming hedges with some electric trimmers a few years ago. After he cuts his last extension cord, he hollars over and asks to borrow one of mine! No chance in he** bud, but you're welcome to use the gas trimmer that the other neighbor gave me...

    Hi Karl, Welcome to Red Square. I'm assuming that you have a Kohler Command version. There are a few of us that are pretty familiar with the 5xi series. I'm sure that a few others will chip in. I own three. I'm hoping that all you have is grass clippings packed up inside the engine shroud. The Kohler Command has a design problem with this occurring. In the engine manual it calls for the heads to be cleaned every 200 hours. The design has metal baffles around the cylinder head underneath the shroud. The only way to remove the shroud to remove the baffles is to pull the engine from the chassis. It's not difficult but getting at the four bolts isn't easy. The engine needs to be raised vertically to clear the engine drain assembly. the tractor is really designed well for dis-assembly but unfortunately creates a process to do it. Make sure that you mark the driveshaft for reinstalling the coupling. The other cause could be rocker arm damage from overheating but check the clippings first To make it easier for cleaning next time, Kohler does sell an access kit to be installed so that you can get at this area again in situ. The firewall clearance is the problem but Toro at least left some clearance once the access kit is installed. For example, the Simplicity Legacy uses a similar version of this engine and their firewall is right up against the shroud meaning the engine must be pulled each time.

    Still haven't put the tins on yet. Have to wet sand them and see how they come. In the mean while I was able to pick up an original JD three point hitch for it. Took awhile to find one as they sell for huge money. I was able to pick this one up for a great price and it's in great shape. I'm going to add the rear hydraulic connection setup for future rear attachments.

    My Horse Barn is located (in Henry County) right where the Ozarks meet the Plains....does that make me "bi-local"? BTW..I maintain a listing of WH guys in MO and KS.....and since 1972 have acquired a "secret knowledge" of several WH's hidden in the Ozark barns!!!

    I thought you might like a bit more background info on Multipower in Effingham. When my father worked there as a salesman way back in the 1960's they were: Mid Surrey Garden Centre. It was horses from there that I used to drive at the Surrey show. I drove past the premises around 8 years ago and they were still in business as multipower machinery, but a quick look on street view shows that they are now MPS garden machinery.

    I just now read that to my wife. She asked me if there was a certain emoticon I could post for her. Well, actually she showed me. I told her no because this is a family oriented forum. Glen, I'll introduce her to you at the show.

    Prior to the wide spread use of chemical weed control cultivating was a big part of farming. Tractors were specially designed with high clearance to avoid damaging the crops while getting rid of weeds. Cultivating is actually making a comeback amongst the organic grower crowds and some of the 50-60 year old tractors and their cultivators are getting back into use.

    I love it when a plan comes together. The knowledge on this forum is amazing. The best part is that even though folks are all over the country, it is like having a nice neighbor that can help.
