512-D with sweeper, upgrades and modifications
sjoemie himself posted a topic in Restorations, Modifications, & CustomizationsHi all. This topic will be dedicated to the upgrades and modifications I'm going to do to my 512-D with sweeper attachment. The plan was to complete my mini IH 1468 before starting to work on the Wheel Horse but since the leaves are coming down quick I developed an 'itch' to get working on the Wheel Horse. First things first, I had to get it running again. New ignition switch and new inline fuse, aswell as cutting out all unnecessary (for now) stuff solved the non-running issue. Dashboard wiring seems to be OK This is a mess. Two unnecessary relais, one unnecessary switch and a bunch of unnecessary wires everywhere. Next up will be a new battery and probably some modifications to the pto-clutch and new oil all around. Also I'm on the lookout for new filter elements for the oilbath filter for the Robin DY41D engine. Done for now. Major upgrades and or restoration will have to wait until after I finish the Murray to IH 1468 project. Running again. Listen to that THUMP! Almost forgot to mention.. probably needs some new rubber mounts Greetings from the Netherlands, Mark
Front mounted tiller
sjoemie himself posted a topic in Implements and AttachmentsA while ago I picked up a Canadiana 5hp heavy duty tiller. It features forward and reverse control and you could buy add on implements for it. My example unfortunately suffered a catastrofic engine faillure a.k.a. 'window' in the block. Hence it was cheap so I picked it up. The idea I had for it was to mount it on the rear of my 'Murray to IH 1568' build. However since I bought a Wheel Horse i've been thinking about mounting it on the front of that tractor. This is what i'm thinking..

Newb from the Netherlands
sjoemie himself posted a topic in Euro IntroductionsHello, new member here. My name is Mark and i'm from the Netherlands. The tractor virus is running in my blood since I was a little kid. I have a few hundred 1/32 and some 1/16th scale model tractors. And since a few weeks my second garden tractor. Stumbled upon this goldmine of a forum after purchasing a Wheel horse 512-D with sweeper recently. Only after buying I found out that these tractors are not too common with the Robin diesel engine. I've already scrolled through several threads and many beautiful pictures. Hoping to learn a lot and maybe add a little of my own knowledge here and there. Greetings from the Netherlands, Mark
Hi from Australia Diesel 512-D
Bliksem posted a topic in IntroductionsHi All, Just wanted to introduce myself and my newly acquired 1990 Toro Wheel Horse 512-D (well almost, I pick it up in a couple of weeks!) I've been researching these for some time and managed to find one in excellent condition. From what I have read these were only supposed to have been sold in Europe, but apparently they must have also been offered in Australia too. I also noticed it seems to have the seat option with arm rests... not sure if this is a retrofit or an additional option, maybe someone on the forum knows? Anyway looking forward to learning a few things on here and getting to know a few people! Bliksem

Scottwilson posted a topic in Euro IntroductionsHi all I’ve just acquired my first Wheel horse and it’s a 1986 512-D with the Robins Diesel engine from what I can see it was a one year only model into Europe. Any info anyone can give me would be great .
