Hi guys, Im an allis chalmers guy but my uncle gave me an old wheel horse t1056 yesterday. I see its a 10hp machine on tractor data. Im hesitant to want to keep any tractors smaller than the 12hp allis chalmers b112's i have. Will this 10hp machine be any good removing large amounts of snow? 

 

I just dont know much about WH, and not sure if its going to have any power. thanks for your time.

You'll be surprised how hard that WH will work.

Very easy tractors to work on and maintain. Try it and I think you'll like it.

Wheel horse tractor's are great machines plus anything 1966 is cool.

that would be nice. too bad. i like snowthrowers much better than plows. but for info purposes. you dont have a pic do you? and how wide is it? single stage thrower like mine on the b112 or actual two stage blower?

cvans, thanks for those pics. wish i was closer. ill pick the plow up for it and get it running. i figure i can use it for the wintry mix 3 inches of slop storms. but its going to be tough. i just finished getting my new 68' b112 loader done and ready for snow. its going to be hard to get me off of this for awhile. :)

I think your really going to like this tractor. Let us know what you think after you've moved some snow with it. It'll do a good job with dirt and rock too.
