Thank you, I will. Just couldn't turn the money down. Would've been bad business to refuse. Thanks I'll hold on to the handle for a while. Kinda sad, 2 "kids"in 2 days.

There is a cure for that, bring an empty trailer and a full wallet to the "Big Show" and I'm sure you'll find one or more!     :ychain:

Still got 2 greens, so not outta the game, but have a whole new excellent perspective of wh and the wh community. You guys second to none! On a happier note, going with my dad to look at a 900 hr 417a for $500 for him.

Thanks again to all until I return.

I'm sure I'll get razed over this but if any of your green turns out like the 1 I'm picturing that would be cool, maybe find yourself an xi series and go at it like this, Jeff.

As a matter of fact Jeff my 214 looks exactly like that. Weights, hydraulic lift,(it's a 1980!) Integral hitch, and ALL the attachments and goodies. No pics in this new phone but I promise you it's CHERRY. btw that 14hp single runs smooth as my kt17!

I never count someone out who has owned a :wh: at one point.  There is something about the simplicity and sheer durability that these tractors possess.  Once you own one, it is hard to be without...

 

Even without a horse, no reason to push away from the community‚ÄĒat least in my opinion. ¬†There is such a great group of guys here and people like you add diversity and good natured humor to the bunch. ¬†I would encourage you to check in periodically and follow the classifieds‚ÄĒyes, I‚Äôm trying to tempt you to find another horse!:rolleyes:¬†¬†

Speaking of buying a horse, what would be your top three¬†:wh:‚Äės that you would like to own if you could?¬†:popcorn:

Always liked the black hoods. 520's and the 417. There's a 67, 877 automatic for sale locally, with small cart, deck and front blade for sale that's all original and beautiful. The owner passed and his son is selling it,  but thinks he's got a gold mine @ $2500. Way too steep.

Nice choices across the board!  I’m speechless on the $2500 877...

$2500 is ridiculous,  right? It  is beautiful and the attachments,  but I was thinking  $1000? Anyway,  as we speak I'm on my way to Raleigh to pick up a 54" 4-way hydraulic front blade for the 317!

You never know. Can make a ton of money down here if it snows and you got a blade for residential customers. Doesn't happen very often obviously

I found this thread and thought it was worth bringing back up because . . . I just bought that 877 as mentioned here. Originally bought in March 1967, with the deck and front blade for $9xx dollars. I have all the original paperwork from the sale, all booklets, brochures, about everything you could think about.The cart was bought at a later time, but is WH as well. I'll post some pics when I get some good ones. It has never been restored, has it scratches and such, but really a time capsule for 51 years. It has 621 hours on it as the owner added an hour meter when he bought it  :) oh .  and I didn't pay ANYWHERE near $2500 :)

      Hello all. I am looking for suggestions on adapting the pto from my C series tractor to a harbor freight predator 420 13hp engine. I know the predator motors are a controversial topic however it is the route I have chosen for this particular machine. The intent was to mostly use it for plowing so no PTO required but it would be handy to have. Looking to hear from someone that has successfully done the swap that may offer any advice before I attempt to transfer it over. Just looking for any general pointers that will help me along the way to make it go as smoothly as possible.

      I am new to this group. I have my sons collection of Wheel Horse tractors that are definitely rare models. He still has one to pick up that’s dual wheel and was purchased from Peabody Coal Co. This is the perfect site to get involved with. The best advice comes from folks that are hands on.. had to be their own machine shop. Nothing compares to the knowledge in this group.! But my first topic is this 19hp Craftsman INDY 500 limited edition model. I was reading a topic on here about the 18hp and 20hp models, but cannot find a single replica of this tractor on ANY site or e-bay. We live near central Ohio, so I’m assuming it’s a regional release.The Briggs engine lobes like a medium cam in a V8. We thought it was an intermittent miss, but it’s not missing a bit. The engine is the strongest riding tractor I’ve ever operated. It will literally cook the deck belt in high grass before dragging the engine down. Very wide and lower to the ground. I never got the size, but the rearend is all tires.! Looks like a dragster from behind.. almost  gives the appearance of shortened axle tubes in a hot rod. Just wondering if anybodys ever seen this particular model. My next top is will be about the C160 total hydraulic Wheel Horse he just acquired. Claim they were specially made for snow removal.

      Well here I am again. In the " other brand " section of a Wheel Horse Forum. Its like my own little section down here. Picked this up today. Went to look at it last week made an offer and it was turned down. He called me today to see if I still wanted it. I always " want" I just never " need". So I went and got it. International Harvester Cub Cadet 106. Not exactly sure of the year. 1969 - 1971. It was owned by the same family since brand new. Father bought it new passed it down to his son. They each owned it roughly 25 yrs a piece. It is in some desperate need of some loving but I think it is in OK shape. All original Has a 10hp Kohler. 42 inch mowing deck, and a 42 inch snow blower. Has chains under the seat but I am not sure if they are tire chains as I have not pulled them out to see. Has original manuals. Runs and drives. It is a TANK ... very heavy. It is covered in greasy dirt. Need to clean it see where its coming from. Engine dosnt smoke when starting or running. This is my first tractor with a shaft drive and it also has disc brakes which is also a first for me. I hosed it down to clean off some old grass clippings and mud and oil and grease . After that I couldnt get it started but I am assuming its because I hosed it down good and coil wire wet. Fingers Crossed it will fire right up in the AM as it had previously done several times beforehand . I look forward to all your comments, opinions, advice....etc. May have paid a little more then I wanted too. Your opinion on its value as it sits I would like to hear as well. You know I will posting pictures of its progress as I try to fix it up some. I still need to go over it and see what I think it needs. The ratchet strap was just there to hold the deck up level. it was missing an R clip to hold it in place. I already put new clip in and its fine now.

      Well I got a phone call this AM about someone wanting to buy my homemade tractor. Guy said he would be over in 30 mins to see it. Meet him out by my garage and I opened the door and he was excited to see it full with tractors. I learned that he wanted to use the Homemade to plow several driveways with it. I explained to him that it really wasnt the tractor for that and should look at the Simplicity or my new to me Cub Cadet. I pushed all four tractors out into the driveway. Gave him the history of each one. He wanted to drive the Cub so I started it up showed him how to operate it. he drove it down my driveway out into the street where he stopped and tried all the gears and reverse. Made a few passes up and down the street. Now he turned back into my driveway and headed towards the garage were he proceeded to smash right into the homemade tractor and T-Boned the Lambert. I thought he was going to ride over the Lambert and through the neighbors fence. He was panicking I jumped over and killed the engine. WOW cant believe what I just saw !!! At first I didnt see much damage. Paint was scratched, small dent in the rear fender on the Lambert. I though no big deal. The guy felt awful about it. Said his fault and would pay. i told him dont worry about it. I would repaint the scratches no big deal on the small dent. So after he left I started pushing all the tractors back into the garage. I get to the lambert and go to push it this is what I discovered......... U G H H H H H H H !!!!!!! Never ocured to me to look at the other side. He pushed it up against the curbing on my driveway. I only had 2 of the three wheel bolts in because I cant find a third. I do not know if that helped it or hurt it. I am relieved the fenders didnt get damaged. The hubs didnt get damaged. Looks like just the rim. I called him back, he came over to look and I decided that 100 bucks be fair. Now I do not know anything about rims or how to get a new one the correct size..... lug pattern.... center hole ... the offset..... i understand none of it. Did I say U G H H H H !!!!!!! yet ? I know you guys can help me. Where do I start?
