Hello All,
Went out tonight and picked up the wheel horse bronco 14 automatic. It is a barn find that I'm told has sat idle since the mid '80's. It has the rototiller, snow blade,wheel weights, what's left to a soft cab and some type of blower if anyone can tell me what it is I would appreciate it. Oh and a tub cart also.
Here's the pictures.

Take care,
Mike

Great find. You have the frame and blower for the Wheel Horse Lawn Vac system. I have the same one and I need to redo the fabric. Your frame mounts on the top of a WH trailer. Here's the thread on mine. Hope it helps. The Bronco is a great all around tractor, you should really like it. I bought one that had been sitting for several years and the exhaust valve was stuck. Pulled the head and freed up the valve and it ran great.

Also, check the lift cylinder rod under the left running board to see if it is rusted or not, hopefully it's closed up like mine was and was protected in the cylinder.

I would like to see better photos of the shield in the Blue circle, I believe it's the extra belt guard that goes on on the outside of the drive belt cover when you you the tiller and other rear PTO driven attachments like the Vac blower. The white circle appears to be one of the idler pulleys that you need to route the belt around the rear axle. The yellow circle is the top front of the frame where one of the flex hoses from the top or outlet of the blower attaches to put the stuff into the collector on the cart.

In the yellow circle is the attachment point for the tiller that hooks under the rear axle. It also appears to have another idler pulley on it.

Can you get a photo of the other side of the tractor and also the rear of the tractor under the rear axle.

Thank you Brian for sharing the knowledge. I will take better pictures today. The shield is definately for the tiller option as they have it marked so inside. I also have a very small metal shield that I will get a picture of as well. I also got the hoses for the blower.

Thanks again,
Mike
