    Hello folks,

    I was wondering if there were any Wheel Horse owners out there or anybody that had some experience with them. Me and my dad have two C-body types that are about 25-30 yrs. old.

    I'd like to converse with you if you have experience with Wheel Horse. [​IMG]


    hope that works.:(

    Do you use JD equipment commercially? (e.g. ZTR's, WB's)

    Not only that but both Kevin's have partially the same signature!
    nu83, check here for prices to sell yours, just ask 'em what they are worth with a good description of age condition, attachments, etc. http://www.gardenweb.com/forums/mowers/

    Back to the original question, I have a 1993 Wheel Horse 520H with 20hp twin Onan, hydro and hydro lift, 48" side discharge mower deck and 36" rear tiller. Great tractor, very little problems to speak of and has 967 hrs on it thus far. I'll try to attach a pic of it's striping action (needed new blades thats why it looks like a 3 wheel rider mowed it :p )
    Eric - ps Kevin email me eric@cuttingedgelawncare.biz would like to talk.

    I'll try to attach a pic of it's cut and stripe. Normally it wears 23x10.50x12 Dico Turf Trac turf tires, they do good even on large hills. I had the lugs on for winter though. A blade mounts to that frame underneath (was removed from frame at time). Oh yea, several friends and relatives have Wheel Horse classic 300 series and grandma has a old C-101 8 speed with 10hp Kohler and 42" side discharge deck. They are great tractors...

    Eric, no wander why you have a had time getting more accounts. from the pics it looks like ya live in the middle of know where. In my area its rare to even see a empty 1/4 acre lot without a house crammed in.
