I have had my electro 12 for over a year now and I am quite happy with it. The hydraulics leak a little, if you let it sit for a wile the deck will drop. The tires are good and it has all four painted wheel horse hub caps. It also has the original seat with no cracks in it, I have been told that this is extremely rare to find. It also came with a lot of the original paper work for it.

Very nice Electro you have there, that was the cream of the crop in 1968-69 for Wheel Horse.  If you are careful with a piece of wood ( 2"x2") with the end kinda rounded off and sand bag. you can work the dents out of the hub caps by rubbing while pressing hard over the dent with the cap sitting on a sandbag.

I like your Wheelhorse.  That seat is worth something.  I'm sure you do already, but I can hear all the originality people screaming right now: "KEEP IT INSIDE NO MATTER WHAT!"

I keep it in, our shed has a dirt floor so we have it up on boards. Never really worried about the dents, not that noticeable when their nice and shined up.

Also were I am, my school has a small festival and we are aloud to drive our tractors if we choose to. So here is a pic of last years festival with the electro 12, two more of my tractors and my brothers cub that a few of my friends drove. And the rest tractors that other people drove up.
