JasonMc posted a topic in Transmissions and transaxlesHi guys, I purchased my firs WH - a 1976 C-120 Automatic. I have a steep hill on my property and before I go down the hill, I want to understand how my braking system works. I’m aware that this year/model didn’t include disc brakes, so is the breaking purely hydraulic Via transmission and controlled by the speed lever? Has anyone encountered issues with this? Is it safe to use on a steep hill? Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks! Jason
For years I have been struggling with the brake on my Wheel Horse 1067. Forward motion down hill takes left leg full force to stop and reverse motion down hill is impossible to stop. So I did a little research and ended up buying a new brake lining from RMaynard (Bob) here on Red Square. Instructions with it are simple and they work. Put the brake shoe and new lining on this morning (used Goop to attach the lining to the shoe). What a difference! Stops on a dime, on a hill, forward and reverse. Thanks, Bob !!
Hello all, I have a 312-8 and slight problem with the braking system... As my last wheelhorse didn't have brakes I want to make sure this one does rolling down the side of the mountain is only fun for the first ten feet. Anyways my brakes currently work well for the tractor or tractor with a heavy load behind but the problem is is that if I try and brake lightly it surges and rips the lawn that I always replace. Is there a way I can correct the problem with out buying new band or drum? There pretty costly... At least to me they are. Thought about using a piece of pvc with sand paper around to sand the band down a little bit because I don't think the drum would warp would it?
