This is interesting and advertised in the CT area. I'm not interested but thought that some members would like to see it.


wheel horse dump truck <----------4 sale or trade

This started out as a late 1960s wheel horse. It has a k181 8hp cast iron kohler .the motor was 100 percent gone through. The rear end is hydro that was rebuilt back in the early 1990s when the project was completed by a hydraulic mechanic who built this truck. The truck is equipped with neutral safety switches and all. The lever in right side of unit towards the front is to engage hydro the one closest to the rear is your drive lever. Everything from steering to the drive train was made from a wheel horse tractor . The bed does dump easily from the seat ! The unit has all new electrical including rectifier to the battery. There was close to 500 hrs documented that was put into the machine. It was done correctly with grease fittings and all. The wood on the dump is all stained and clear coated.the tractor goes to shows driven around never used to work yet! Any other questions or concerns I can be reached 860 681 3610
Unit is located in ct 06489

I wonder what the sticker is for that.
Looks like they did a decent job with the modifications,

The guy selling it just bought it from the guy that built it. He bought it just to mark up and flip it.
