Need a key for Wheel Horse 212-6

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I broke the key off in my Wheel Horse 212-6 lawn tractor. The part of the key with the threads is still in the ignition switch so I can still start the mower with needle-nose pliers, but I don't trust it to last for long. I need a new key. My existing key has the word "INDAK" stamped on it.

 

I have read online that the keys for these old mowers are fairly interchangeable. Is that true? Can anyone point me to where I may get a new key, or maybe someone here has one they can part with? This is a 30+ year old Wheel Horse 212-6 lawn tractor. 

 

Any help with this issue is greatly appreciated.

@GlenPettit  a vendor on the site here sells them.  Send him a PM.  :)  Glen has had something going on lately...if he does not answer you, I may have an extra one here for you.  :occasion-xmas:

:WRS: Your local Wal Mart  may even carry them, most hardware stores have them as well.

You should be able to find one of these most any place!  My Ariens and Toro snowblowers have these, and I know some of the old snowmobiles took the same 'Indak' key.

Mine looks a little different, it's from an old Toro and has their old logo with their trademark 'bullhead' on it.  I treasure this old key! :)

Yes just about any lawnmower key will fit...I've got a whole jar of them in my shop, every summer there are several junked out mowers that show up at the city dump...I pull the keys out of all them I see and put them in a jar, never know when you might need one. It's saved me a couple times either from losing a key or buying a tractor without a key

Small vise-grips with a red handle would make a fashion statement as well... :)

Thanks for the advice folks. I was able to get a new key today at Tractor Supply. And it even works!

Appreciate the help.
