So there's this wheels horse up the street. been there for 10 years that I know of. Out side but covered. I talked to the old gentleman that owns it a few years ago and although he was interested in getting rid of it he wanted to talk to his kids first. Fast forward to today. I've been thinking about stopping back in and talk to him again and decided to today. when I get there a few people are outside. Ends up the old gentleman is going to a nursing home. They are definitely wanting it gone. All I know about it is it appears to have a Kohler (spit balling it as about an 8 h/p) on it and its got a 3 speed with hi low range. It will need tires and battery at least as it hasn't ran I don't know how many years but the engine is free. Comes with a deck and blade as well as wheel weights and chains.

Wanting some info on possible model and what would be a fair offer for this. Its in over all god condition. surface rust but things look straight. There appears to be no rl place to put you feet with the deck off of it.Took a couple of pictures with my phone. Ill have to figure out how to get them here. I want to keep it all together and here in town. Would be cool get it going and make a trip to the Nursing Home in town and show it too him going again.

I can't help you on WH, but it sounds like you are in the right spot, at the right time.

It is mid to late 60s. It has stirrups for your feet. It is missing the pto which can be expensive. It does have the best looking grill(IMO). Maybe $100 for it all. That is assuming the deck is rotted(they usually are) and the plow has the tachmatic hitch(which is often missing). Wheelhorses are real nice to handle tractors but parts can be a pain and expensive. Good Luck, Rick

I was going to say $100 to $150 tops.  Yes, as said, the remainder of the clutch might be pricey, plus there will surely be lots of other expense to get it up & running.

A 1267 would be a 12 hp KOHLER (K301S-4712B) 8 speed (3 forward, 1 reverse with hi/low) Wheelhorse rear-end #5060.

 

I would say $150 with attachments stated in your post.

Owensvlle isn't that far away from me...better snatch it up! :watch_over_fence:

One more question. Does the missing PTO on this unit power the deck?

Yes it powers the deck and a snow blower (if you have/use one) and a rear garden tiller. It is needed to power any/all attachments.

 

I'm going to send you a PM (personal message)

 

This is what a manual PTO looks like.

Here is an electric PTO....Don't know which one you need.

A good thing about WHs is that a lot of them were made and you can find parts on ebay all day long. In addition, we have sponsors on here who, I am sure have parts as well.

The 12 hp Kohler is arguably the most popular GT nengine of all time. I don't want to spend your money for you, but if your handy with tools, that's a good project right there.

 

If your looking for a model number, there should be a plate on the left side of the dash stand.

Another thing to add is this is the first style of the long frame tractor. That itself makes it more desirable to me. As a matter of fact the 66-67 long frame tractors are probably my favorite Horses and the best looking in my opinion.

That would be a real nice candidate for restoral, very sharp looking tractors.
