    Today I saddled up the 1960 horse and put her to eating grass! Not the fastest but man it cuts great! Gets lots of looks as people drive by! Time to clean her back off and let her relax!

    Got home today after a long day at work, found this in my driveway, knew right away who it was from, a friend of mine original owner, says all it needs is a carb cleaning, and a battery and she will run, nice original condition. Think im going to clean her up, some fresh decals and use her as a general yard tractor.

    So in my Yahoo inbox today was an email from Photobucket.....I was never a big Photobucket user and haven’t accessed my account in probably 10 years. Established a new password and went scrolling. Mostly pics that I could care less about but this one caught my eye. I can’t tell you what year this was, maybe @nylyon can recall. Long story short Karl myself and Chris went on a road trip to Pennsylvania to pick up a “surprise tractor”. The young man on the right is Chris Sweetland, he actually started RedSquare as a high school project. That’s right! Hopefully his teacher gave him an A+ . Fun fact: Chris is member #1, he called me and asked me to join his tractor website so that he would have at least one member and that’s how I became member #2. Next to Chris is me, hands on my hips like I have attitude . Next guy is Dustin Messinger or DMESS he used to be a member here. I still talk with Dustin thru Facebook and Im picking up a parts tractor from him at the big show in a couple weeks. And last but not least, the character on the far right is our own Karl or Nylon. This was a great trip, my trailer, Karls Durango towing it, Chris sleeping for HOURS in the back seat and the C-160 surprise tractor! (Disclaimer; tractor in the pic is not the surprise tractor.)

    After 50 years and three generations, this horse is training the fourth generation (it was their great grandfather’s lawn mower). With some luck, it’ll be around for their kids. (Notice the wash rags. They clean it before they drive it - good habits start young.).

    Went to the show Friday, 6/7. Theme was J.Deere patio tractors, but there were just as many Wheel Horses. Had some flea market junk, lots of hit&miss engines, farm tractors, and garden tractors. Met a few WH collectors and some interesting tractors. I took the opportunity to go to the show because my son and his family recently moved to southern Indiana, but I don't think it was good enough show to go that far for again. Maybe it was just hampered by the rain forecast for Saturday.

    Sort of like the president of a major corporation using a golden shovel to break ground for a new building. Two shovels full for the photographer and the off to the Country Club for some refreshment!

    Well little bit of history, heres a picture of me when i was 14 on a wheel horse c141 my neighbor owned. He found it in a junkyard and did a little restoration on it. He took me and his son to a tractor pull and let me run it. So that pic was taking 16 years ago. Well after that neighbor having moved away and the tractor being sold off (i didnt have the money he wanted for it) I never seen the tractor again.... Until! I found it sitting in a back yard rotting away. Spoke with the owner told him the history I had with it and what not, he told me "I'll tell you what you give me a big bottle of jack and shes yours. I know you'll take care of it and actually use it." So I'm happy to say shes mine! After all those years its cool to own the horse i got my start on.

    Haha! Made ya look ! My two show put-puts for this years WH Show we’re still muddy from the spring Zagray show (especially the one I let @wallfish drive ). Broke out the electric pressure washer and gave both a good blasting. The front tire treads were the worst to clean. One less thing to do before the trip to PA

    Spent the weekend over in Yorkshire at the above show. To say it's big would be an understatement. Set off at 7-15am on the Friday morning, and drove over in glorious sunshine, with four tractors on the trailer. Set up camp next to Meadowfield and family and that evening the heavens opened. Saturday was a bit damp with very slight drizzle all day, till around 5pm when it brightened up. Sunday was sunny and T-shirt weather. Some photo's of some of what was there. I took these Saturday morning before it got busy. I didn't realise how many I'd taken, so they'll be in more than one post and no specific order. To be continued.

    Just rescued from another junk dealer. Sat in his yard for 3 long years. Got it home safely and put charger on battery for 5 min and it fired right up. Now to give it an oil change and new fluid in transmission. And clean fuel system. Traded a cheap $65 "bang- bang" for it. This will be my new plowing snow toy. Number 5 in my growing collection.

    Hello everyone. I was able to acquire a new tractor. This is my new C145. Picked it up from a great guy earlier this week. I was also able to get the plow blade with it. This is a great running tractor and it cuts great. I put it to work today. I'd like to thank everyone reference a post a while back when I was asking questions about what tractor to look at. This was my choice and I couldn't be happier.

    Just picked this up over the weekend for $250, has the plow attachment, wheel weights and chains, new tires all around and rebuilt generator. Looks like someone sealed around the gas tank to stop a leak. Do they make PTO's for these? Also what kind of oil do these old Kohlers like? I'll be plowing with this and doing some grading. Thanks

    I have been a St. Louis Blues fans since day one. I lived through the Red Berenson years, the Garry Unger years, the Bernie Federko/Brian Sutter era, saw Brett Hull score 86 goals, see the team win the President's Trophy, seen Chris Pronger and Al MacInnis defense years. I seen the team at it's worst when Emile Francis took over in the late 70s and saw Ralson Purina buy the team and rename the St. Louis Arena to the Checkerdome. I had to endure the Mike Keenan fiasco, and see The Great One come only to dissed the team for New York Rangers. After all that, to see the team teased the city and it's fans with great teams only to lose in the first or second round of the playoffs. Then, for the first time in the team's existence, from 1967 to now, to see the Blues actually win the Stanley Cup. It was almost as magical and unseemly as the Cubs winning the World Series. Finally!!!!!

    Been nursing my little sequoia sapling I brought from California last year. It has grown already over 4 inches this year. When it gets substantially bigger have to find a good spot for it in the place here. Perhaps 1000 years from now it will be close in size to its parents? In NJ of all places. Just to clarify it. Sapling was bought in Souvenir shop at Sequoia National Park. It was not removed from area. They only asked that it not be planted in Park.

    Well I was just waiting here in the wings to chime in to see what the others had to say about your dilemma so here's my solutions. 1) Quit hanging out with guys that find free 520's with batteries put in backwards and does triple scores for 100 dollar runners that don't he need one cause he already has that model. 2) No more auctions for a cheap but cool piece that ain't really even a tractor or even a horse but gets passed off on the Missus as a mower. 3) Visit the guy that bought the nice ranch from under you down the road with lots of room and out.buildings with a bottle of whiskey and a .44 mag and ask him if he wants to reconsider his purchase. (Might be a last resort here). 4) Get a bro down the road who is a half a$$ed sliver wizard and get him to help build said addition/new barn. 5) Give all yer tractors away to bros (including the 'shutts) call it a day and take up needlepoint with a SIL who can teach you the finer stuff. Maybe have to dig out the metal slivers out of your eyes case you have to have an MRI for bad shoulders from grinding on and bench lifting K series but still safer than explaining a new to me to the Missus.. Just sayin ......my

    Latest update Have all the parts assembled at once and it's really close now. The steering moves but the tolerances are too loose to keep it looking right. I'll be doing some more little things and sanding probably right up until I leave to head down on Wed but here she is. Thanks so much for all of the great compliments and following along on this little build.

    Hi all. Maybe no one missed me, but just wanted to let everyone know that I'm still alive and still vertical to the ground. Sorry I haven't been around lately and have missed a lot of good stuff I'm sure, but have been dealing with some family emergencies that have put all things Wheel Horse on the back burner for the last few months. Today is the first that I have even logged into the website since I can't remember when. Anyway, just wanted to check in and say and hopefully can get back into active participation in the near future. And also did want to mention, if the stars align right, I am planning on attending the Big Show and hopefully get the opportunity to finally meet many of you in person.

    So over the weekend I picked up a no-name eight horse power only to find out I think the motor is toast. But no avail I decided to take the foot rests off of it and put on to IRV ! It all bolts up pretty well. Now some might not like it because it’s not all original but I love it! Although I will have to do some more painting but the parts are rust free so should clean up really easily.
