    Rear end strength questions

    The Raider I guess from new only had one large set screw but the replacement hub I got from a member here has 2 set screws.

    Rear end strength questions

    Yes, a few months ago the keyway broke and then destroyed the hub. I guess it is fairly common when pulling, or so I have been told.

    Shifter boot and Ignition switch I got off eBay and all those other parts right from my local Toro dealer.

    Awesome! Nice machine! I really like the sound of a twin and over 4000Rpm is even better!lol Are you running quick change pulleys? I need to get an assortment of those for my sons new tractor. Is that a transfer sled?

    Rear end strength questions

    Nice! I am really impressed what these tractors can do! We just trying something new and to get the edge on the competition. Lol We are trying to keep maximum strength and deliver the most power to the tires. These tractors were only meant to do limited work. Pulling is really pushing what the tractor was designed to do. The nice thing with Wheelhorse is that the weak link is either the belt or keyway in the axle. Our newest tractor is a 14hp engine with lots of engine work. I am going to do some more work to it before next season and have it dyno'd. We are thinking it should be around 22hp when dialed in. We pull in 3rd gear at 4000RPM. So we need to get those tires turning.

    Rear end strength questions

    A few of us here in Connecticut have been talking about this recently. One guy is thinking to remove unnecessary gears in the 8 speed. Less rotating mass. Another is thinking he has located bearings to accept the 1 1/8” axle into the 4 speed rear end. Then another guy has some extra special top secret super slick gear lube to pour into these gearboxes.

    Is that a satin finish on the 657? It’s got a great look!
