312-8 brakes surging
Wheelhorse Fanatic, in Transmissions and transaxles
I own a 1990 Wheel Horse Classic Model #31-12KE01. While removing the rear tire I noticed what I've posted in this video link. I assume that's my brake wheel (product name is problem wrong 😄). Does it look normal as it appears loose to me? The only brake issues though I've had is the tractor rolls when on an incline which I thought was a parking brake problem. So looking for some thoughts.
Hi 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!

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 !!
I have a d-200 here in shop. first time working on something this big. customer says when brake is applied the tractor still rolls ??? I noticed when brake is applied transmission shifts to neutral. should tractor stop immediately??? is there an adjustment??? I found the owners manual but a little vague.... unit does not have the brake kit on it
