What are the rarest wheel horses?

Recommended Posts

I'm sure it has been posted before but couldnt find in the search. I know production numbers were not kept accurately, but was asked how rare a 418A was. I have not seen many and just wanted to see what the forum thought. I know the early Rj's and Ponds were rare, but would be more interested in the later models. I am aware they only made around 560 C195s and a limited number of 1045's. ANy information would be good to know. Thanks

418a is not a rare tractor. My rare tractor list is a s follows:

1) RJ25

2) RS83 Senior

3) Lever steer

4) RJ59

5) 420LSE

6) 1046

7) C195

Don't forget the 520-8... very few of those made. (like 250 or something.)

Of the latest style of tractor, those and the 420LSE models are the rare ones, and even "rare" is maybe not the right word. There are more than 100 of each... I'd say they're more of a hard to find and buy kind of thing. Not often for sale... like the 1046 and C-195 Pat listed. Not like the Pond tractors. Those are very few and far between. (unless you're Clay, Vince or Steve.... then you just open the garage and they come running to you. ;):ychain: )

I think this model had a very limited production run. I've only heard of one ever being found.

You're being modest. I don't see why you couldn't whip up a few thousand before next year's show! :ychain:

I would Add 1045 , 754 , 520-8, early RJ35 W/alumm steering wheel & cable steer

I personaly do'nt think a RJ59 is rare just miss labeled but I would keep it on the list just the same

Okay, somebody fill me in on the 520-8 because I'm new to Wheel Horses. We had one when I was a kid we used all the time to mow with. It had a 60" deck and chrome hub caps.

I have a 418-A

and I live 3 miles North of Boston

so it wears a snowblower year round.

its a beast!

all the power I need,and the fluid hydro drive is  simple.

hopping on it is like puttin on your most comfortable boots.

Cast iron 50 LB's in the rear,

and a newer model single stage tall chute that gets a nice rooster tail of snow flying 35  feet away.

As to my post in 2012 I am rethinking this as I still think a 607 is very hard to come by. It took me 3  years or better just to find one. I have not seen many posts on this model. Just my :twocents-02cents: Enjoy what ever you have.
