Are my eyes deceiving me here?? Troy has a red tractor? There may be hope yet!    poke.gif

 

Don't get too excited there Doug. It's the only non John Deere that I own. The Previous Owner thought is was a John Deere since it was painted green and had round fenders. After I told and showed him it was a Wheel Horse, he lowered his price from $200.00 to $25.00, because I made the two hour trip to buy a "John Deere". My youngest son's name is Ryan James, and he is on the short side as far as height, so that is the only reason for me bringing it home and adding it to the collection. Plus, at $25.00, I couldn't turn down the offer. :smilewink:

I was going to ask if you had painted it green yet. Guess you didn't have to!

No, not yet Brian. I'll keep you in mind though if I ever change my mind. It's all complete, including the fenders and the tool box. Even has the original mower deck, which I believe is a 32" cut? Not sure though. The front tires were full of fluid, and are rusted bad, so I'll have to track down some front rims whenever I get around to restoring it. I haven't had it running yet, but the K90 Kohler seems to have good compression. When it comes time for restoring it, I'd like to find a nice set of hubcaps for it, and maybe a front blade. My father-in-law has a nice original Wheel Horse dump cart, and he said he'd give it to Ryan once the tractor is completely restored. I bought the tractor about three years ago, took it completely apart, and put it all on the shelf. Hope I remember how it all goes back together. If not, I'll give you a call Brian! :D
