1973 wheel horse 16 automatic.  Well used but was running excellent until the mice ate some of the new wiring i did in spring when they ate some of the original wiring.  I'm sick of replacing wires.  Easy but annoying.  New battery over winter.  Cranked over and chopped up some mice but it's not sparking.  Points and coil new last year.  Hydraulic lift snow plow and tire chains.  Listing because frustrated with wildlife.

FB served up this to me yesterday.  It's out your way and struck me as something you "need".  With a handy Wheelhorse possibly leaving this might be the right replacement for "yard mule" work.

We have the golf cart still, it's handy around the yard but I really need to ditch the slicks and get something with tread.

Wish I was closer. My current Wheel Horse is a little older and I've been looking for a newer model laugh

You have a mower older than a 1973?

1968 Commando 8 for the mowing duties at my place, standard sized bearings and belts, cast iron Kohler, should be good for at least a couple more decades.

I passed on a '68 Indy 500 WH that was decent for $750.  Regerts in life.

I am very interested. Does it come with a mowing deck? What type of payment options do you prefer, paypal?

In reply to Chandler:

I can definitely arrange to meet you, I think Michael is near Charlotte. Let me know how I can compensate you for the relay

PayPal is fine, no deck.  It's cranking like a boss but not starting.  I converted the LF to a bolt on wheel using a harbor freight hub and the original bearings and a little drill work so it would take bolt on cheap trailer wheels.  One tie rod is creatively attached but has been that way for 5 years of plowing snow and pushing rocks.  I can drill the 2nd HF hub for you and include the new wheel for the LF and give you simple instructions?  Basically pop out bearings from original wheel, install in HF hub, slide on and use a 5/8 washer to take up the difference and bolt the assembly on.  It's well used but I've done my best to maintain it.  As we've both gone to awd/4wd dailies I basically quit plowing the driveway.  RR tire leaks overnight.

That tie rod fix sounds like what we ended up doing on ours. Can I trouble you for a pic of the hub mod? 

In reply to Dusterbd:

looks like about a two hour drive, definitely do-able, thanks!

Sounds like a plan. Looking at my schedule it looks like I could make the trip to Michael's on Tues, Oct 13th to pick it up. If that doesn't fit with your schedule Michael just let me know and we can arrange another day. yes
