By how big (horse power, deck size, etc.) you say it is, it is probably (can't say for sure) a LT. Even though it may be a LT, since it was made back when things where built heavier, it may still be able to handle some work, though not as much as a GT could.

:wave: Welcome to the forum. Glad to have you aboard. It's better if you upload your pice directly to the forum. Links get messed up and the pics will be lost from the thread.

@Gabriel its a 8hp Briggs & Stratton, 38" deck i believe. Since its an older one and probably built better than some of the newer tractors. Do u think it could handle towing wagons full of logs or dirt etc. ?

@JD.rasentrac my scotts is made by JD, its a 42" tractor with a Briggs and Stratton 17HP OHV (it knocks though, so it dont have much time to live.)

I have a scotts 1742 also.  It's a good mower. I charged my battery up this weekend, checked the dipstick and it started right up. As far as the wheel horse, I am not sure what you are getting so I can't answer about that.  Sounds like you live in a great spot.Have fun.

Welcome to the madness.Great to see young blood who is interested in tractors at a young age.

 

you posted 2 separate pics of Wh tractors, the one is an LT as you can see here is no lug bolts holding on rear wheels, rim just slides over axle.

The other one is a true GT, the bigger rear wheels and wheel weights kind of tell that.

 

 

It does depend on what model of WH you are getting. I had an old B-80, had an 8 Hp Kohler and was rated as a GT. From what you are saying though, the one you maybe getting is probably a newer model and maybe a LT.

Thanks :) i found some pics of a wheel horse that looks similar the one i may get https://www.icloud.c...#A1J0DiRHGQeZQP
Its an older one.
Also I'm hoping to get into welding (getting a starter machine from home depot for my birthday) so i would be able to repair any rust or make a new cool exhaust! Lol tractors sure are fun!

Looking at the two pics, the second one is a GT with the 12" rear tires. The other one is an LT and not suited for heavy load pulling.

:welcome: to GTTalk, thanks for joining.

I guess the best way to answer whether or not it can handle a loaded wagon with dirt, logs, etc., is to know exactly what model of WH it is your looking at.

If the B&S engine on your Scotts (JD) is about done for, would a new engine be out of your price range?

Well, i was going to get the WH and then give the Scotts/JD to my little bros to have some fun with while its working. My grandpa said we might be able to rebuild the engine to get some more time out of it...
How much does an engine like the JD had go for?
