Will the plow I am using on my C121 and C160 work on a 876?  
or is the plow frame different?

Thanks

Bob

876 being a short frame, it isn't the "correct" plow frame if it fits a C.

 

But- it might still work. May just stick out farther in the front?

My 855 has a long frame plow and it fits OK. The blade angle lever clears the right stirrup and the lift aligns OK. Like @kpinnc says' , it just sticks out further in the front.

My plow frame actually has the dual holes for use on short or long frame tractors, but it is installed in the rear set of holes designed for a LF  tractor and it works OK on the SF 855.

Good point Ed! I completely forgot the 2nd mounting hole on the newer plow frames.

I concur. 

Trina's Pigpen 867 has a plow from a '74 C160. 

Works great. 

We also keep it mounted in the rearward set of holes.

The others have already covered it above but I have used  the same snow blade on a 606, a charger 12, and a C-161. I did move the rear crossbar to the front set of holes for the 606.

Where did that end up placing the Angle lever for you in relation to the right foot stirrup?

Here's the LF plow on the SF 855.   The pin is in the rear holes and you can see the angle lever is in front of the stirrup.

If the pin were used in the front holes, the plow would move back where the angle lever would fall behind the stirrup and may be easier to reach.102_2984.JPG.4e3096b3a3c601e1665ed1b665a13c12.JPG

Doesn't get in the way of one's foot???

 

 

I ask for Trina. She does quite well enough the way it is but if it could be made a little easier to reach, why not?

Here’s a pic. I use this plow on the charger 12 currently so I can’t remember exactly how much clearance I had but it didn’t hit anything.  I have a 54 inch l now use on the 161 and it takes a different direction handle that I had to take off this plow and install on it so that it would clear everything. The handle that you see on the 606 works with it and the charger 12.  I use the rear holes on the charger and the lever is positioned in front of the floorboard.  Let me know if you need me to try to grab some pictures of it.C1831886-9840-4BA4-AB84-90202F6CEF07.jpeg.1933e832af9da34231f5a887f2e2a1a0.jpeg7F8A1F30-0B3E-4605-A62B-14F6FCF5E9E5.jpeg.e3d9e2c01ba70af45845793bcebb6cbe.jpeg

Perfect illustration. 

Thanks guys.  

 

Perhaps we'll try that connection next time she moves dirt.

@ebinmaine my son is 6’5” and weighs about 250 pounds and even with heavy clothes the lever did not get in his way. On ours it sits very close to the Tractor. It’s actually very comfortable because of the short reach required to move it right or left. I think Trina would love it.

I never plowed with this 855, but I do believe there would be several advantages to mounting it in the forward holes.

1. the total rig would be a foot shorter taking up less storage.

2. the angle lever is easier to reach

3. there would be less side push on the tractor if the blade were not extended so far in front of the front wheels

      Just wanted to show a modification I did to my 1990 310-8. I recently picked up a 36” tiller for my horse and I tried it out on my new garden area. After hitting a rock, it knocked one of the axle brackets open dropping the right side of the tiller. On a manual I viewed, it had clevis pins to hold the lever in, but my bracket did not have them. I drilled a 1/4” hole through on each lever and mounted a 1/4” clevis pin and hairpin cotter to reinforce the lever. I read on another post to just tighten the bolts on the levers, but I think this will work a little better. Hope this helps someone!

      Good afternoon, looking for some help regarding a plow assembly for a 1999 520xi model # 73542.  I'm told that a traditional Wheel Horse plow assembly will not fit this tractor, that the xi series requires a special plow assembly.  Problem is, most of the people selling plow assemblies don't seem to know what they have, and I don't know what I need!  I have included the supposed model numbers pulled from the Toro website, including that of a retrofit kit, but I'm not sure what that retrofit kit does! Does it enable me to fit a traditional Wheel Horse plow to an xi model? Don't know.  One guy selling a plow knew what type of plow he had and told me it would not fit my tractor, stating "Lift link and handle are in the wrong locations."
       
      Any help would be greatly appreciated. Just need to know what the hell I'm looking for, which might help me find it!
       
      From Toro site:
       
      Model #: 79355
      48" Snow/Dozer Blade
       
      Model #: 95-4090
      48" Dozer Blade Retrofit Kit
       
      Thanks!!!

      Hi guys I'm new to the wheelhorse world and i recently picked up a for 416-H and I'm looking to buy/install a plow put on it. I have found one on craigslist but I can't tell if it will work on my tractor or not, it is a wheelhorse plow though. Can somebody please send a photo or even a video of how to hook up a plow to a 416 or equivalent tractor?
      Attached is my tractor and the plow I'm looking at. Will it fix and what's it missing ?!
