    Wheel horse or other???

    Ok thank you guys for the replies i will pass them along, so come to find out in the basement is a cultivator and the actual unit itself. My father in law told me tonight, he just didnt know that it all went togather. So what would ine if these be worth?? I will try and grab some pictures tomorrow
  2. So my inlaws bought a new house and this sicle bar was in the garage. Does anybody know if it goes to a wheel horse or what it goes to??? It has a shaft that comes back and is chain driven and has a pulley and a belt to drive the chan off of the motor. Any help is appreciated.

    thanks guys hope this site helps me when I need it, didn't figure I would have trouble getting rid of the 60" deck but need to trade it for a 42-48" deck found some on ebay but man those are pricy but they also had a 60" on ebay for like $899 and mine is in better shape than that one. I will try and get some pictures up in the morning she is a bit dirty she has been in the barn for 3 years with hay and birds coming in and out when the doors are open

    Hello guys, My name is Josh I live in west central Indiana and am totally new to the wheel horse. I just picked up my 1996 i believe 520h from my dad who bought a new zero turn 3 years ago and decided to part with the wheel horse, it has been kept in the heated pole barn ever since he has had it since probably 2000. its a 1996 520h 20hp onan with 700 hrs on the gauge 60" deck. the tractor is in imaculate shape but the deck has got to go as i do not need that big of a deck. so i look forward to learning about the wheel horse and enjoying it, it wont just mowe it will plow snow grade my driveway and whatever else in need it to do...
