  1. A year or two back I purchased this with a Bolens 1886 and a GT10. I don't know anything about Bolens tractors, I own three Kubotas. I thought that I would modify the loader to fit a B6000 that I own, so my son would have a small tractor to 'work' with me. It's also large enough to squeeze onto my B7100, and the specs compare to the B1630. But I had second thoughts once I discovered how rare it is to find one in this condition that is purpose built to fit a Bolens. The loader and tractors were in a barn under cover, so apart from expected surface rust, everything was in great condition. I sold the tractors, but kept the loader. The loader is missing the four front pins and the lower mounting beam that I know of. There might be other parts required for mounting to the Bolens and another tractor. I'm including the manual which has good drawings and lists all the parts in case something needs to be fabricated. The loader is a Workhorse Model 14 (nearly the same as Model 24). The specifications are posted on the booklet photo. It has v-belt driven pump that turns and feels like it's still pulling/pushing fluid, but I haven't tested it. The hydraulic lines were full of clear fluid, and all the cylinders are fully functional and tight. I had my son work the spool valve so that I could push/pull the cylinders, and they moved with difficulty like I would expect, but smoothly without any binding. No obvious signs of any leaks on the spool valve or at the cylinder seals, or hoses. However, I did notice one pin hole leak in one of the steel hydraulic lines on running across the support above the bucket when I worked one of the bucket cylinders. Other than that, the hoses actually look pretty good, although there are a couple of gashes in the rubber covering here and there. The pins on the lift cylinders hardly show much wear at all, and all pin bores are concentric and tight. I think it's safe to say the loader wasn't used much. The bucket has a high carbon cutting edge that shows very little wear. The bucket was primed when I got it, and it does have a bit of rust scale and shows pitting through the primer from where scale was removed before priming. It's still rings really solid. Spool valve operates as expected and I had to have my son operate it so I could push the cylinders in and out the take the pictures. The cylinder rods are in great shape, no evidence of rust or wear in the seal travel zone on any of them. There is some surface rust outside on the ends near the pins as shown in the pictures. The loader frame looks rusted, but this is nothing but surface rust, it's obviously made of good quality steel. I'd like $1500 for the loader as shown with the manual. I have many additional photos, but the site limits the number I can post here. I'll likely post the loader to other sites, and advertise locally as well. I should be able to ship the loader on a pallet to your locale Fastenal, for $125-200 depending on your location. Or, you are very welcome to come to Portland, OR and pick it up in person. conrad503(AT)gmail(dot)com is my email address, and that's the best way to contact me.
  2. Toro Front End Loader with Weight Box for Xi series tractors. The loader is in excellent condition and was removed from a tractor with 70 hours. It is complete with all the parts including the stands. I will also consider a package deal with my Toro GT550 (522Xi). The GT550 has 1,000 hours and has some cosmetic issues, but runs and operate good.
  3. Didn’t get to swap the loader out for the 44” 2-stage snowblower and cab on the 520-H before the Christmas Day storm. I had the engine out to redo the top end (decarbon, clean and reseat valves, New gaskets, New fuel pump, tubing, filter, plugs and properly seat camshaft Welch plug) so no time to switch over before storm. It’s just another excuse to use the loader! Merry Christmas everyone🌲🎅🏻
  4. Never saw one before so I had to build it. 200 lbs of rocks and gouged out an old stump. No fail. The little son-of-a-buck wouldnt quit. I love it. The little LR will never plow a field but dont ever say its not robust enough for ground engagement. Thats nonsense. Just another example of how they built lawn equipment in the 60's. I have a bone stock LR from '66 that I would never change. Great to have both a Jekyll and a Hyde.
  5. Selling my Wheel Horse Front End Loader removed from a 1979 c-141. The loader works great and I just had all the hydraulic hoses replaced 2 weeks ago and added quick connects for easy removal of the loader. The unit works great, no rust, no issues at all. Only reason I'm selling it is to make room for a Kubota. The sale comes with the loader, the mounting brackets, hydraulic pump and all hoses and hardware required to mount and operate the unit. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

    Pennsylvania to St. Louis area

    Hey folks, I'm trying to get a 520 with a loader and rear weight box from Pennsylvania to somewhere at least close to St. Louis. I don't suppose anybody is making that trip anytime soon? I know it's a longshot but I thought I would ask. Even if you can get me within a few hours of St. Louis that would be a big help. Thanks very much. Craig

    Kwikway loader

    I want a Kwikway loader for my wheel horse. I am either going to put it on my charger 12 or buy a D200 for it. Either way contact me about whatever you have be it Kwikway, Johnson, or Ark.

    Westendorf FEL?

    Westendorf has a FEL called the TA-52. It is rated for minimum 10 horsepower. I have not seen anybody using them on their horses, so I wandered if it was an option or not. I have a Charger 12 Auto and am open to any suggestions or better companies to get a FEL. I would try to get a Kwikway, but nobody within the state of Indiana seems to be selling one. Like I said before, all feedback is appreciated.

    Charger 12 FEL question

    I have a 1969 Charger 12 That I am thinking about putting a front end loader on. That being said, I would either like to buy one for a good price or fab in one myself. I need some advice as to whether I could possibly run it off of the hydro tranny on my tractor or if I needed a hydraulic pump. Another question is if I needed a hydraulic pump, how would it perform with a FEL? Would it have good enough pressure for that application. Heck, I don't even know if my Charger would be a good choice for a FEL. All help is appreciated.

    My D-180 project

    Unfortunately not allowed to upload more pics here... But you could se my D-180 project if you are interested - with some mods at my site: http://www.bengan.com/predator/ In the meny to the left - click Wheel Horse. I believe that it's quite unique... =) Sorry for the only Swedish...
  11. Kwik Way FEL I picked up at Steve Myers Service in Cridersville, OH recently. I was asking a friend Nick (WH857) about a project loader I had seen on Clist that was missing all the hydraulics. He mentioned that they had this Kwik Way in at the dealership. I made arrangements to go after ASAP! This will be going on a 310-8 speed with a mix of 520H parts....unless I can find a reasonably priced 520H locally. Will update the thread with more pics once I start throwing it together tomorrow.

    Decent Buy?

    I just picked this up. Its a 1998 522Xi with kwik-way Front End Loader. for $2800 the hour meter is showing 327 hours. The guy claimed to be the original owner. Im new to the wheel horse's but very much becoming a fan. In my eyes Its a great little tractor. I just was curious if was good buy as I couldn't find anything to compare it to for sale.
  13. Well as I fix one thing on my good ol' 1973 auto 18, the next weakest link needs attention. The tractor an ARK 550 was working like a charm as I moved chords of wood from on old oak that had fallen. Then all of a sudden when I engaged the clutch lever on the left side of the tractor, to engage the hydro pump powering the ARK 550. The FEL stays down. No motion at all. It appears that the pulley that is some type of clutch directly off of the front of the engine doesn't engage and drive the belt anymore. I'm not sure exactly what the protocol is. So before I make things worse wanted some feedback on someone who went down that road. I took a few pics of the problem area. What do I take apart and where do I start? Thank you again for your guidance and wisdom! Jack

    I found a D-250!

    So, long story short, I was looking for something interesting for my next Wheel Horse. I was keeping my eye out, and then I saw something that kinda stuck in my mind. It was so unique. And luckily, I was able to snag it. I talked it over with my parents, and they helped me out with it, and my dad took the 6 hour one way trip with me yesterday to pick it up. Without further adeiu, here is the info on the D-250 and my findings so far, and some pictures, and a video! So, The tags on the tractor make it a 79, 80, or an 81. but the front loader tags, say 80 or 81, so I am going to call it a 1980 D-250. The tractor runs absolutely beautifully and smoothly, It has just under 590 hours on it, there is a slight belt squeal from time to time, and the alternator light will sometimes flicker, but I will figure it out. Everything works, from the front loader to all the levers, gears, dash lights, steering box has no play, ect. The only problems with it, are that it is not a beauty queen, the headlights and tail lights do not work, the rear fender is broken because it is plastic, the foot throttle is a little weird, it doesn't work perfect, and there is a hydraulic leak in the front somewhere, not large, but noticeable when the tractor sits. With all this said, I have done my research, and will take care of this tractor. I understand how rare of a breed they are, and want to make sure it works for a long, long time. I looked at all the weak points that people say to check for, and everything seems to be alright. It does need some fixin's here and there, and it will need to be treated with TLC, but, this thing is absolutely AWESOME, and I LOVE it. I didn't realize how large it actually was until i brought it home. Click on the pictures to make them larger Oh, and it came with a tiller, with some obvious weird repairs This is how we had to transport it, because it was about a foot too long with the bucket on our 5x9 trailer. This will make some people happy:
