    D200 18 Automatic electric pto clutch?

    Thanks Pete You were right, repairing the manual clutch was the way to go (and more original that fitting and electric one), A local engineer was able to make me the parts needed to repair the PTO clutch The Beast is back
  2. Hi I managed to get the clutch re-built. Someone local built some unavailable parts and managed to manufacture some clutch linings I think the thin rings that Sarge mentions were part of the problem (what I would call thrust washers). Anyway I think the mower will be in action again early next week Thanks for all your suggestions
  3. Thanks for the info on the electric PTO option it seems to be the most feasible option (but expensive), maybe I can find a good used one. On the original Manual PTO front, in 2011 the clutch bearing disintegrated, I sourced the parts and rebuilt it (I had to re-use the thin rings that Sarge mentions above) It worked for a while but the pulley never really engaged properly and the clutch would slip with a heavy load. Now it needs a new rebuild and parts are becoming scarcer. I agree that it would be more original to rebuild but, unless I get some parts made, I doubt it would be possible.

    Hi I am not a regular visitor here. But I have had a D-200 since 1995 here in Berkshire. I had it out in the sunshine today (but rather cold) A couple of pics attached

    D 200

    A monstret project indeed, but the rewards are great. I have a D-200 here (in the UK) where I have used it for cutting grass since 1995. Sourcing parts has been challenging A few years ago the PTO clutch seized, eventually I got the parts and re-assembled it. But it never quite recovered and if my local mower shop cant fix it, I guess I will have to sell it on to someone with better mechanical skills. Shame as you get attached to the BEAST. A few pics for you to enjoy

    Hi Gazza Nice restoration Gary - looks like new I live near Twyford (between Reading and Maidenhead) My D-200 wheelhorse (and its 42-inch deck) is sadly sitting in the garage and in need of TLC. I had some issues a couple of years ago when the PTO clutch seized (bearing disintegrated). I managed to find parts and re-assemble it. Since then however I have never got the geometry right to re-engage the clutch fully. So the lawn is now cut by another ride-on but I do miss the riding around on the wheelhorse. Steve
  14. Hi I am from reading Berkshire. I own a fully restored B111 with a new 36in deck. I show each year at great Dorset steam fair.

    Hi I am new to this site I also live in Berkshire UK and have a D-200 with cutting deck in my garage (I will get round to registering it and posting pics one day) I have owned it for about 20 years but I am thinking of selling it.soon I have managed to obtain spares, but not always easy My biggest challenge to date was sourcing parts for rebuilding the PTO clutch Pearsons Mailorder stock (and can obtain) Wheelhorse spares (watering.co.uk, email at anyname@watering.co.uk) they even have an online enquiry form for wheel horse parts https://www.watering.co.uk/services/toro-and-wheel-horse-spares-enquiry-form.html but you need to know the part numbers first. I find the following sites useful for identifying part numbers: https://lookup3.toro.com/partdex/index.cfm?xCaller=Toro (where 01-20KS00 is the D-200) also http://torotractorspares.co.uk/part-lists/ Hope this helps
