My '73 12hp "No Name" automatic, '68 Raider 12 and the '90 520-8 came out for a stretch today. It did feel like spring is on the horizon. :dancingbanana:

 

The other two, '88 414-8 and the '85 416-8, decided to stay in. Both have their plows 'n chains on, these two Stallions were playin' tired but, always ready to go! Never even mounted a snow blower!   :thumbs:

 

Looks like the fleet'll be ready to romp in the fields, grazin' on the moist green grasses!

OK Jarheads, let's do it!  :rolling:

The '90 520-8 is currently being restored but, runnin' great. I have to order some decals, get 'em on!

 

I have a restored 48" SD deck ready to go. The one I got with the 520 works but, needs TLC.

That'll be a warm springtime project. I'll get the Grandsons to help. I have six decks for five Horses, so, not racin' against the clock. The guys with the plows mounted are a '88 414-8 and a '85 416-8.

 

Have owned many WH's. The 520-8 is the best to date, power and I do like the sound of the Onan (my other four Horses are Kohlers, great engines).  :thumbs:

The "project in restoration" came out a little today, needed some sun!

 

Decals on, almost all of 'em, and sporting it's 48" SD deck.

 

This Stallion is chompin' at the bit to graze on the new spring grasses. Where is spring anyway? :wave:

Spring has been put on hold due to the lawsuits against Puxatony Phil!
