I thought I'd seen it all, until I saw 'ride em cowboy,' from Neil!

 

I'm wondering if there are any better pictures of this gang of W/H tractors?

 

It would also be good to know if this fleet was just stationary or did all this actually move?  If it did move, how did they do it and how was it controlled?  Was just one tractor running and the others were just being pulled?

 

I wish I could read what the stage coach wagon says on it, I can see that it reads Wheel Horse, but I can't make out what the rest says.

 

This is super great stuff!!! :)

Can't remember his name, but a machine shop owner in Kewanee has a six-horse team pulling a stage coach in a parade in one of the facebook threads. I'd look for it, except I've been Locked out for for not having my picture in the I.D. info. Trying to thin out members ?????  Dunno.

I think that's the same guy that hits some of the parades - not totally sure. FB has gotten weird, I'm about to un-install it completely.

 

Love the vintage pics, btw.

A vintage pic of my grandma on her new GT-1142 on its maiden mowing voyage. She always loved to mow and especially loved her wheel horse tractors. I have her Work Horse 700 that she used before they bought this one, but unfortunately i didn't get the 1142. 

 

She passed away 2 weeks ago and this thread made me think of her. I blame her for the fact that I have a building full of wheel horses lol. I'd like to find a tractor like this to restore sometime. I spent quite a few hours as a kid mowing her lawn when she would let me.

Sorry for your loss Mike, sharing pictures like this helps keep her memory alive. Glad you are the third generation owner of her 700.    :text-bravo:

Today, my mom found found an old photo of my dad's brand new 1962 Wheel Horse. I was six years old and my sister was five. My dad sold it to a neighbor sometime in the 1980's. My uncle found it in 2011 and returned it to me. It was in really bad shape when I got it back... Took me over three years to completely restore. I am so proud to own this tractor again and have the opportunity to ride it again at tractor shows.

 

 

Do you have any pictures of it today? That is so cool you have your Dad's tractor. I would trade my 68 Roadrunner for my Dad's 1963 633!

OK here's what's interesting Norm Steinman from Bourbon , IN who had a Wheel Horse dealership had a similar set up for Christmas parades. As I remember it had links to the tie rod ends for steering and used one hydro tractor to pull three gear drive tractors. I wanted to purchase the set up but feel in love with RS-83 Senior he had instead which is now in my collection.

I had documented right here in the RedSquare forum, many photos of the restoration process that I went through. This is a collage what I started out with in 2011 and what I ended up with in 2014.

I have been bringing my dad's restored 1962 Wheel Horse to the Big Show in Arendtsville, PA each year since 2014. This is a photo MrsRules took of me riding around at the WHCC show last month.

... And this is a photo that my sister took of me riding in the tractor parade just this past weekend at the Menges Mills Historic Horse, Steam and Gas Show near Jefferson, PA.
