Well the Horse hobby has been very good to me lately. We had a fantastic turn out at our show this past weekend and to top it all off I was able to score some good items and pretty good deals.

The first one is a C-195 Pedal Tractor made by Roadmaster. This one will go very nicely with the other Wheel Horse pedal tractor I have on display. Was very happy to get it.

Second of all I was able to bring home a very clean 2000 Toro/Wheel Horse 522xi with a 60" deck the day before the show. This thing is a beast and one that will be fun to use.

Finally added another great looking 1045 with the HL-5 headlights to go along with my other 1045. Was able to do some Horse trading with a friend and ended up with this beauty.

So all in all.......it has been a great Wheel Horse week for me!

Nice scores one and all. I like the pedal tractor, I've never seen one. It's really cool. Congratulations on the whole lot.

Just received my "Tee" shirt from the show, and it is very nice. My wife thought the Indiana Logo was very nice too.

All very nice finds Scott, but my favorite is the 1045, although the 522xi sure will make a great worker! :thumbs:

Al,

That machines sports a 22 h.p. air cooled Kohler. You can get it in an 18 or 20 h.p. as well. They also offered an LXI which is a liquid cooled Kawasaki. To top it off there is also a 523DXI which has a diesel power plant under the hood.

This machine is a beast compared to the 520-H that we used to own. The power steering makes it so nice to drive. I am a die hard Wheel Horse guy and though this is Toro's invention.......I love it!

Nice additions, Scott!

Those XI's are way too new for me, but I'm hoping to using a 60" deck next year, albeit a bit older than yours. :peace:

Thanks Dale! They are really too new for me but I got a price on this one that no one would have passed up. I love mowing with this machine. What a great machine to say the least!

Gee, Scott, while I do prefer the older stuff, I just priced a belt for this particular mower. $166.06. Sure hope I don't need one any time soon!!!

I prefer the older stuff as well. I figured things might be a little pricey on this machine to repair. It is way over engineered to what I am used to. Keeping my fingers crossed that it will be a unit that needs very little maintenance!
