I see you cut the fenders on the wheel horse! What tires are going on it that you had to cut the fenders?

I tried mounting the 26-12-12 turfs on it but even with cut fenders it would not fit . Building some wheel adaptors this weekend.

Man, that's quite the dilemma on tire choices.

The 26-12-12's are already loaded from being on the jd 430 . I'm building the wheel adaptors today and will post a picture tonight of the rear tires mounted.

Today I mounted five bolt hubs on the front axle and attached the old rear wheels on the front axle . Now it's starting to look like a big tractor, ha,ha.

Looks like one scary tractor, Don! Do you just put normal trailer hubs on the front? I see that one the WH and your other projects your wheel adapters are square, can you elaborate on them some?

The wheel adaptors are now the thrid or fourth set I've made and the square ones are much less expensive to make . If I keep going at this rate I'll be making several more, ha,ha. I can always bend four pieces of thin metal and bend them and tack them on each flat surface to give it a round look if need be.

Fenders and a big tractor exhaust finish off this weeks work on the newest addition . Might make another JD 4 wheel wagon too this week but a little smaller size . Got to work on the Komatsu bucket , dump linkages and hydraulic clinders .

Nice work on the Horse Don. The JD cart is a beauty as well.

I could not stand staring at the rusty Wheelhorse after a week in my yard. I just decided to grab the nearest can of paint and the paint gun. I got the sander out and did a bunch of hand sanding on all the rust spots . I was surprised to see the paint in the gun was green. Everyone is going green so I said what the heck !! Now this will preserve it until I get back to working on it again this fall. I'm done buying garden tractors :thumbs:
