Found a super deal on a Wheel Horse GT14 with Ark Loader.  It looks a bit rough, but runs and the loader is fully operational.  I was surprised to see how heavy this tractor is.

 

Now I need to find out what year this is.

 

Model Number:  7451

Serial Number: 632324

 

Now I need to find a hood for this guy.

 

Here are a few pictures

From my research, this tractor is a 1970 model.

They are a pretty big tractor. Seen one for sale not too far from here but no loader with it. A little work and that will be a super handy rig to have around the property.

Your full 1970 model number is 1-7451.

Have never seen an operator manual for it but the 1969 model 1-7441 uses the same engine and transmission so it should work for you. The only two years the 6010b Kohler spec number was used.

Can download it from the Files of

Wiring diagram should be correct.

This is my GT-14 and a D-200. The loader is for the D-200, but probably would work on the GT-14. It is an ARK 550.

Neat! I have GT14, no loader. That bucket looks plenty big tho, might wanna see how much you can really fill it and load safely. Think you'll be OK with loose stuff, but sand and dirt full in that may be too much for tractor to lift w/out tipping and such. I would want forks and a snow blade for one if I had. Can move lots of things with forks and can keep stuff on pallets then if you have room. Put some chain hooks on bucket too to lift things that way.

Thank you,

 

It is a pretty big bucket and there are no rear wheel weights or weight box.  I don't think it is set up right now for very much weight.  Chain hood would be really nice to have, then I could haul heavy items around my yard.

I really like the rear blade on your D200.  Nice tractors.
