    Its several hundred yards from house... Ill leave him alone for now. He did get his bell rung im sure as one slug did go right through and crashed into other side. Dont know how he lived. Tony
  4. Hello all, Took my Mossberg 500 out and a box of slugs. Its that time of year and I added a scope to mine. Started smashing 1 ounce slugs at 1400 fps into 2 propane tanks I have out back. Man it caves in the side at a minimum and punches clear thru 50% of time. I hit both tanks and they go sailing and crash to ground. I pick em up to reset and this little guy is looking out all big eyed going WTF was that! Lmao... session over, Ill leave you alone (unless you move into one of my Kohlers!) Tony
  5. Hi, 520H maybe--520HC?? (Does the gear reduction make it an HC?)with 422 hours, everything works---all gauges and lights. Has forward swept axle and gear reduction steering. Eaton 1100 rear. Been sitting... put in new battery and got it running. Needs carb job as it surges at idle. Both cylinders running and at full throttle it sounds and runs good. Nice clean un-smashed or rotted 48" deck and mule drive included. Just dont need...I will try and get to cleaning carb. Not hard, just need to find an hour or two. Thanks Tony

    Twin GT2500 Anniversary Specials added to the stable

    HI, sorry... haen't been around in last 30+ days. I think you made out well... those are really nice machines and I for one like the Briggs motors.
  7. 12 year old Craftsman with Briggs 6.5... original oil, original blade, original plug, original air filter. I tuned it up and gave it a cleaning and the Briggs fired up and thanked me. Lol... check this out My friend Tim Norton use to call this "over maintenance..." Tony
  8. Good morning all, Saw the 1960 movie "Sink the Bismarck" on tv... watched it then was googling and reading about the two biggest battleships of the day... the HMS Hood and the Bismarck. Hard to imagine that we as humans can build such powerful stuff and yet in one weeks time completly destroy all of it and kill 3500 men while doing it. R.I.P all involved Tony
  9. Happy Memorial Day weekend, And thanks to all--both here and gone. Picked up a Johnny bucket laat week from @snowhound. Decided today to clean the carb on my 310 and get it running... then decided the Johnny bucket should go on it... then decided the 25" atv tires that were on a GT2500 I again got from Snowhound (Ed) should go on it... then decided the 6" fronts had to go and found a set of 18" ones. Put it all together and adjusted travel on bucket so it would scrape if I wanted. Need threaded rod and nuts / bolts for the weights--off to hardware store tomorrow. Im impressed with the huge ground clearence. Im going to use it alot for moving small things around. I also think my father is going to want to use it to move some loam / mulch around. Tony

    Has anyone put an Onan in a Blackhood?

    What RPM are your hp ratings... thats the difference... your 19 hp is probably at 2000 rpm. Plus theres alot more gearbox and tractor weight that motor has to push. Ill put a Kohler K341 or MAG 16 one lunger against an Onan twin 20 every day of the week... and Ill get the job done while the other guy goes for a broom and dust pan to pick up the rear valve seat and rod. If he wants a twin look for a Kohler KT Ii or Mag series and run it till the cows come home. Tony

    By the numbers yes thats what it means... Ive run a 48 through thick grass with razor sharp blades using a 10 K series... did it like it no... would I recomend it... no. But....

    Oh geez, look what followed me home this time...

    Love the Patina... Love the Jokes... forgot about that book! I gotta find another copy Tony
  13. Hello All, So a little story / thoughts on this big Wheel Horse circle of life. Several years ago Steve @stevebo sells his K series single equipped 416 to a seldom seen member here on Redsquare (I forget his screen name--his real name is Lou). Things go along and something goes wrong with the 416... it gets left outside, then it ends up at my place in a tarp shed, then the mice get into it, then I move the tarp shed but not the tractor and it spends yet more time outside. Steve contacts me about my 416 trade deal I'm trying to make but we never get together on that particular tractor...I end up trading that 416 for a GT1600 and a GT2500---both needing work but being a Briggs guy I couldn't help myself. A couple weeks pass and I say "Hey I have this 416 that is full of mice.. I think it was yours" and I send pics---he confirms and says "I have a pic of my son at 2 or 3 sitting on that. So we put a deal together and I end up with his 857 and he ends up with this 416 and another one of my 416s this time with a Magnum. While at his house we discuss his custom puller / rat rod with the Wisconsin yank start... and long story short I go home with that.... The funny part is I look at it close and realize that I had given Matt @grnlark the bare sand blasted and primered 70? frame and dash tower / rear fenders with no wheels or trans or motor or hood... Steve says---yah I got it off him and built this rat / puller out of it and a Wisconsin I picked up at Zagray farms... Its just funny how these tractors seem to make small orbits right back to where they came from... See you all at the show!!! Tony

    That Kohler will have no issue running that deck if you keep the blades sharp... I'm with Mike---give the Kohler some good maintenance, a good tune up and keep the deck in tip top shape. The Kohler will be more then happy to keep it going for you. Remember Wheel Horse's rule of thumb... 4" of deck for each HP. Tony

    Hi, I was waiting for someone to ask... it is indeed a Johnny Bucket Jr. Which is a cool little "scoop" / mini loader type setup. Tony
