1056 4 speed with 10 hp Kohler,
Last owner's father purchased it new.
He told me the Kohler had been rebuilt.
Runs strong, no smoke.
All gears are good, transaxle came with clean oil.
Has a slot hitch.
And the original dozer blade.
Though weather checked, the original
Wheel Horse logo tires all hold air.
The pto was removed and the mower deck was given away.
Have the parts that were removed from the pto.Local pickup only
I just bought my first ever tractor - 1989 520H. One of the front tires has a slow leak, and they are both showing signs of age, so am looking at buying new. When I look at some of the options on the Miller site, they have 3 basic types of tires as options in the 16x6.50-8 size ..
circumferential ribs (either equal sized or central rib larger diameter) ag style chevron 'super lugs' turf tire - quadrilateral overlapping treads
What are the considerations for considering these different tire types ?
The current rear tires are turf type, no weights, but with chains.
I have 1.5 acres, quite hilly, and am using the tractor for some mowing, tilling, and garden plowing.
Appreciate some perspective, suggestions.
I just bought some Carlisle Turfmaster 24x12-12 rear tires to replace the 23x8.50-12 tires I have on there now. I was wondering which rims I should buy to fit these bigger tires. The charts say an 8.50 width rim but should the offset stay the same or does it need to change? Any other dimensions I should be concerned about?
Thanks in advance.
Hope everyone is healthy and well!
Had my Panzer out yesterday when I moved some things around in the barn. When I rolled it around, one of the old front tires let go. It had been sitting flat when I got it and had bad cracking in just that area.
The other tire seems fair, really no cracking, but very hard . I looked at Miller Tire, but didn't see much in this size, especially nothing with an old looking tread design.
I think these are original -Goodyear Super Rib 5.30 / 4.50 -6 I,m going to post a Want Ad to see if anyone has one like this. However I'd apprecite any suggestion for new tires in this size. I'm open to all suggestion, ribbed tires, old looking tread design, etc.
Here's what these original Goodyear looked like.
I know yaa''l like tractor pictures, and just realized the only one I have of it is when I picked it up quite a while ago.
The Briggs engine needs an overhaul. The cylinder is worn .008/.009 ths oversize. It will run about 10-15 minutes before fouling the plug.
