Just picked up a 65' 875 (will post picks later) with hydro drive and a fresh rebuilt K181. It has a slot hitch...which leads to my questions. Was Wheel Horse the only one to have these things? And what do you do with them? Do they make plows and whatnot for them? Thanks!

Can't wait to see the pics Adam!

Like you, I have never seen a slot hitch implement for sale near me, but I know that they exist LOL! What I did find however (on another forum :blush2:) is these pics of an adapter from slot to sleeve hitch that looks easy enough to whip up.

...But I always keep my eyes peeled for that distinctive tongue! Maybe one day I'll snag a few!

Adam, Wheel Horse came up with the slot hitch in the 50's. They had a full line of attachments, they built for their tractors.. I will try to find some pictures of the attachments this weekend.

The guy I bought it from says, "Yeah, I guess I never noticed it was different than the rest." He has about 10 wheel horses. I thought that was funny cause it was the first thing I noticed when I got there. I love different. Thanks for the responses guys.

Very nicw looking W.H.. You will need to get a lift cable to use your slot hitch. It runs through the hole at the bottom left of seat Support.

Also, anyone know how to figure out what belt these need? The one from the crank to the starter keep twisting or coming off, seems I can get it "just" tight enough. It seems to be too fat for the pulleys.
