1977 B80...79252 Plow pictures?

Recommended Posts


Howdy all you tractor geniuses...
I have had the good fortune to acquire a 1977 Wheel Horse B80 recently and have already started to make needed repairs/improvements. One of which is the addition of a model 79252 plow which appeared to have everything attached with the exception of the rear axle bracket (which I have already ordered, received, and put on) a means to attach the frame of the blade to the lift mechanism on my tractor. All of the drawings I have seen call the part I am missing a "plate" with two possible numbers (105-1384-03) or (79551001).
My question is, "Does anyone have any pictures of this plow mounted on a B80?" I am just trying to ensure that this "plate" is all that I am missing before ordering it and paying $70 for it!
Any and all information would be greatly appreciated as I am pretty new to this, but am trying to keep my new found love of Wheel Horse alive.

dmhill, :WRS:
On  my B-80 (1975) there is a short chain attached to the "rock-shaft" and the plow.Some folks have a solid piece of steel from their rock-shaft to the plow. This allows you to apply down pressure on the plow with the lift handle.

Thank you,
Is there any chance you could send a pic or two...?
My number is 7204345626, I'm in Denver.

If you could/would send your number I have some pics of my set up on my phone.

that model 79252 is NOT for the B-80.  You need a dozer blade as in these pics, or have a good weld guy on hand to prefab parts.
The correct dzoer blade does NOT hang in the front tach-o-matic hitch....it hangs from a chain or flat stock bar from the rock shaft, which is raised / lowered by the implement lift handle.  The back end of the dzoer blade locks into the rear axled hithc.

Very nice looking B-80.
When I saw the photo I realized I have never seen a plow hook up like that!

Thank you for the information..... Albeit not good news. Wheel horse  tractors and parts in this part of the country are impossible to find. I seem to be one of the few....the proud....pony owners in Colorado.
I suppose the search continues. I now need (want) a plow, wheel weights, and chains.
Thank you for any and all assisstance from both who have contributed to my plight.
I do wonder why this plow fits so perfectly into tbe front hitch and the  rear hiutch.......i wonder if i could fabricate a bracket for the center lift to make it work.
Thank you all.

      Will the plow I am using on my C121 and C160 work on a 876?  
      or is the plow frame different?

      Just wanted to show a modification I did to my 1990 310-8. I recently picked up a 36” tiller for my horse and I tried it out on my new garden area. After hitting a rock, it knocked one of the axle brackets open dropping the right side of the tiller. On a manual I viewed, it had clevis pins to hold the lever in, but my bracket did not have them. I drilled a 1/4” hole through on each lever and mounted a 1/4” clevis pin and hairpin cotter to reinforce the lever. I read on another post to just tighten the bolts on the levers, but I think this will work a little better. Hope this helps someone!

      Good afternoon, looking for some help regarding a plow assembly for a 1999 520xi model # 73542.  I'm told that a traditional Wheel Horse plow assembly will not fit this tractor, that the xi series requires a special plow assembly.  Problem is, most of the people selling plow assemblies don't seem to know what they have, and I don't know what I need!  I have included the supposed model numbers pulled from the Toro website, including that of a retrofit kit, but I'm not sure what that retrofit kit does! Does it enable me to fit a traditional Wheel Horse plow to an xi model? Don't know.  One guy selling a plow knew what type of plow he had and told me it would not fit my tractor, stating "Lift link and handle are in the wrong locations."
      Any help would be greatly appreciated. Just need to know what the hell I'm looking for, which might help me find it!
      From Toro site:

      48" Snow/Dozer Blade

      Hi guys I'm new to the wheelhorse world and i recently picked up a for 416-H and I'm looking to buy/install a plow put on it. I have found one on craigslist but I can't tell if it will work on my tractor or not, it is a wheelhorse plow though. Can somebody please send a photo or even a video of how to hook up a plow to a 416 or equivalent tractor?
      Attached is my tractor and the plow I'm looking at. Will it fix and what's it missing ?!
