Well, this has been a nightmare and a blessing the past week. I was scrolling across Facebook marketplace and came across a tractor I had never seen nor known about. I have(as far as I know) all advertisement and manuals on the Work Horse line and had never seen a RR-832! Even after doing a lot of online research, barely anything seems to be known about these. I found one manual that includes A-81/A-111/ and mentions the RR-832.
Anyways, I attempted to contact the person selling the Work Horse on Facebook and purchase, however she thought I was a "scammer" and didn't really want the tractor. Within 30 min it was listed as sold So, I started doing everything I could to track another one down. I found just ONE example on Youtube, and that gentleman sold the unit years ago. I found another SINGLE example on this forum, however it was slightly customized and the owner hasn't been active for awhile. What to do now? Well...buy a A-111!
I put out a post looking for a RR-832(Still willing to buy a true one with cash in hand from any state) and a young man offered the below A-111 for $150. I couldn't complain with that price! So, we worked out a deal, I had him payed, and I set up shipping. Four days later it was sitting in my driveway. I'm going to go through the process of "converting" the A-111 to the RR-832. Give me some good luck If anyone has any information on the Work Horse, I would greatly appreciate it!
Hi I am trying to resurrect my fathers 1966 wheel horse lawn ranger. I have gas leaking from the carburetor and I need a replacement. I can not seem to find any accurate resources for the correct one needed.
Here are the specs for the tractor. I am also in need of a seat for it if you know which work for this model.
Thanks in advance!

First post on this site. Any info would greatly be appreciated. Looking for information on this Raider 12, picture has model and SS#. It has a Kohler engine, mowing deck and cultivator. It was my parent’s and I used growing up mowing yards and plowing tobacco. Around 1990, dad replaced motor with original short block and replaced mower deck. Mower has not been used in 20 years, but the 3 blades turn freely. Tractor has been sitting in shed and not ran in 5 years. Motor turned over with jumper cables but did not start. The Cultivator plow has had some metal added to place Concrete block for weight, that dad and I added. I don’t know if I should sale for scrap metal or for someone to restore. Any recommendations?
Here’s a walkthrough video I took today.

I met up with a fellow member here today. He has two C175's, one of which had its engine replaced with a gray Kohler Series 2 short block. Is there anyway to tell if it was replaced with the correct, Wheel Horse spec, short block? It's currently missing the engine tins. Is there a number somewhere on the block that would identify it as being a Wheel Horse spec engine with the proper thrust bearing. Thanks. Bill
