Found a 1962 Wheel horse 702 for sale. I haven't looked at it in person yet but in the pics it looks like a nice unrestored original. It has a front mounted? Mower deck. Any ideas what its worth? The guy claims it all runs and works like it should. I know nothing about Wheel Horses other than this is one cool looking little tractor! Thanks in advance.

The 702 is a nice tractor you should post some pictures of it here hard to put a number on something you haven't seen .

Does it have a rotary mower or sickle bar mower mounted to the front?

Rotary mower mounted to the front of the tractor. I don't have the pics or I would post them.

I'm jealous of the Challenger in that pic!

Is this a 702 or a 720? Title says 702, but your post says 720. We can fix the offending #'s, just give a holler.

Thanks, Hank! Fixed it for him.

I have a '70 Challenger R/T, 383 Magnum & 4-speed! It was hard to beat when I put the 4.30 gears in it!

When I bought it, I had a choice between it and a '70 Hemi Cuda!

Back to our regularly scheduled posting!

Pics would help a lot rustywrench but even then you'll get numbers all over the place. Naturally, the condition is a major factor but location has a lot to do with it as well. I'm not sure but I'm thinking that Wheel Horses in Idaho may be similar to here in Florida, rather scarce.

 

KennyP, that is sweet! The car AND the tractor.

Yeah, Ive never seen one around here before. He says it had been his grandpas.  He's asking $800 but who knows? I assume the mower is a factory accessory? Its about 2 hours from me and with my work schedule, I doubt I can even get there to look at it before he gets it sold. But keeping his number just in case.

Well rustywrench, that's is quite high in any condition. Maybe a primo restoration but still high. Again, pictures will help a lot.

I thought it sounded high too but never having seen one before with a front mounted deck......I wasnt sure if it was something rare.

Neighbors west of us have a Wheelhorse, don't know the model. DO know that it is wow q-u-i-e-t compared to our CubCadet LT. Muffler envy here😀
I'd bet that thar reel mower lasts ... maybe one season in Florida sand lots.
