The 1100 Work Horse is basically a 312-8 painted silver and uses a briggs instead of a Kohler. Not rare just cheaper engines,  Any attachments that fit the quick attach from 1973 and newer go right on

In the late 60's or every early 70's a Company started producing a GT with the name Work Horse. Wheel Horse took them to court and won, then WH registered the name themselves and started producing a less expensive GT under the Work Horse name. As stated above, WH used a B&S engine because they were less expensive then a Kohler. WH continued selling the Work Horse for several years and they were basically a C or 300 Series Wheel Horse. All of the attachments will interchange.
