We just pulled in the driveway a few hours ago from the Wheel Horse Collector's Club show which was held at the South Mountain Fairgrounds. Wow is all I can say! It was another great show. I don't have a final count of how many tractors showed up, but there were several hundred at least. The weather cooperated in that there wasn't any rain, but there was plenty of heat and humidity to go around! I was pretty busy socializing and shopping this year (the flea market is second to none!) so I didn't get many pictures. I did take a shot of all the goodies I came home with though.

We all had a great time at the show and the drives to and from were uneventful as well. I ran into some old friends from past shows and even some folks that I met this spring at PA plow day. I also got to meet member gapper for the first time too!

It was a nice day for a show today. I just remembered tonight that it was today, kinda late to remember. Sounds like it was a good show.

Sounds like a nice show. For someone like me who is still learning about the different brands, a club show like that would be a great education! Looks like you got some nice parts and that plow looks like it's in excellent shape.

That would be a good place to get an education on WH Gt's. Not many around this part of the country, either.

Steve, glad you and the wife had a good time and safe trip. We would have liked to have gone to meet up with you but we already had the fishing trip planned and just couldn't squeeze the show in. The Wheel Horse show is definitely a great show for Wheel Horse collectors.

Brian, he told me over the phone, but listening to an excited wheel horse collector is kinda like listening to a book on tape of just numbers. I am trying to follow along, but am unable to retain sometimes. I think he said it was for the 704? That may have been the hubs tho... Maybe the 564?

IDK, Steve will be along at some point to set me straight and call me later to beat me up about this post :laughingteeth:

I hope he gets his coffee first, otherwise he may not see or appreciate the :poke:

Good morning buddy.

Yes the plow is in excellent shape. I don't believe that it has ever seen the dirt! There isn't ANY wear where you'd expect it (inside the pin hole, at the end of the mount bar where it would go into the slot hitch, or on the share). I also believe that it has the original paint on it!

what model does the fenders fit?


They're marked "701", but I bought the fenders to go on the 854. They would fit several models like the 551, 701,702, 703, 704, and the 854... I'm sure I've left several out, but those are the ones I KNOW they'd work on. The tool box would work on the 702, 703, 704, and the 854. It's actually the tool box that I needed for the 854, but the fenders may go on the 551 :laughingteeth:

Sounds like a nice show. For someone like me who is still learning about the different brands, a club show like that would be a great education!

That would be a good place to get an education on WH Gt's. Not many around this part of the country, either.


It is a great place to learn about the models and differences between them! Many of the vendors in the flea market can tell you what parts will fit what models. There's even a "Tech session" hosted by Bill Pearson and a couple of other gentlemen who have been around Wheel Horse for a LOOOOONG time and really know their stuff! Bill is always more than happy to help with random questions too.

Brian, he told me over the phone, but listening to an excited wheel horse collector is kinda like listening to a book on tape of just numbers. I am trying to follow along, but am unable to retain sometimes. I think he said it was for the 704? That may have been the hubs tho... Maybe the 564?


Thanks for trying Alan. I'm sorry that my number soup was confusing LOL.

Steve, just jerking your chain, I'm sorry I didn't get the info to stick. I was actually interested... Out of my element, but interested.

Dang it! Steve, Wish I knew you were going! Would have liked to meet you! Looks like you found some pretty good stuff! I brought home some attachments as well for the RJ's! Did you see the Brian Marion's stainless sickle bar on the 854? Kind of a suprise to see that one. He usually post's all his builds on RS. That was truely awesome! I think I spent most of my time talking to old friends and making new ones! Maybe we'll hook up next year!

I'll throw a :ditto: on that! Sorry that we missed each other! I was set up very near to the registration and kitchen area. I had the three rusty ones LOL. The sad thing is we probably walked past each other 100 times! Brian Marion was set up directly behind me across the center field...and I didn't get to stop there this year. I spent about 20 minutes in discussion with him last year and really enjoyed the conversation! I did notice the "Lady Ranger" there this year...didn't get a chance to chat with them either though. We'll have to make plans to meet up next year for sure!
