I was reminiscing the other day with a WH friend about some of the trips we have taken to pick up Horses. It made me wonder how far some of us have traveled to buy a Wheel Horse. I am sure I have not went the farthest and would guess I would land in the middle of the road trip pack.
I picked up a 520 once in Indiana 5 1/2 hours one way. (that is probably my limit!).
Found another huge Wheel Horse auction in Ohio of a deceased collector, ART PEOPLES .
Sale bill states :
"45 WHEEL HORSE LAWN TRACTORS IN ALL SIZES INCLUDING TWIN CYLINDER MODERN ONES, SEVERAL CUB CADETS & JOHN DEERE, LOTS OF ACCESSORIES, ROTO TILLERS, SNOW BLOWERS, WHEEL HORSE PARTS, ENGINES, OLD REPAIR MANUALS, GENERATORS, LOTS OF SCRAP METAL, TIRES & RIMS, LAWN CARTS, LAWN TOOLS, SPRAYERS, YOU NAME IT."
Location is about half way between Dayton and Springfield. http://maps.google.com/maps?q=219%20W%2E%20MAIN%20ST%2E%20MEDWAY%2C%20OH
This one looks to be of about same size as the other OH Wheel Horse auction I posted about one months ago. Can't believe this one is scheduled the same day as Portland.
Found a large WH auction on AuctionZip ( http://www.auctionzip.com/ ) in Ohio on May 21.
