I have a chance to get a tiller and snow blower for my Wheelhorse but I don't know if they will work on either of them.  The tags are pretty messed up but I'll give it a shot.

 

Tiller: T121147?

Blower: 26117?

 

Either of these look like good numbers?

 

Tractors are a 2003 315-8 and a Raider 14.

After looking at the picture again, the "T" in the tiller number could be a 7 if that helps.

Just about anything on a C series tractor will interchange from 1973 on. That's the beauty of a Wheel Horse. Make sure you have all the accessory parts to hook them up. It's really expensive to buy the mule drives for the tiller. . .    or the lift rod and flag for the blower.

Tiller may be this one

At the very minimum the lift hardware is different for the 315-8

A 1985 model has a serial number 26147.

The only difference in those two numbers is the lift flag. One has a spring assist.

Ask and ye shall receive.  As you can see, the tag isn't in great shape.  Seller says it's tight and dry.  I have no reason to doubt this guy.

Model number on the ID plate is 7-1211-7 and serial is 873419.  The dash 7 (-7) minus 5 = 2 = 1972. They added a 6th digit when model numbers ran for more than one year. This way they could identify the model year. You will see 6, 7, 8 and 9 on the tractors at the time also representing 1971, 1972, 1973 and 1974.

Thanks Garry.  As usual you are an absolute wealth of information when it comes to Wheelhorse.  I'm on the fence here because I have no time to go look at this thing.  I already told the guy to sell it if a buyer comes along.  I would hate for him to lose a sale waiting on me.  Having never owned a tiller for a tractor, I really have no clue as to what to look for.

That does look like the tiller that Garry mentioned in post #6. Notice the rear idler pulley on the axle bracket instead of the tiller frame. That will work on a newer model. It has a 2 belt drive setup with pulleys mounted directly in front of the transmission. I didn't like that so I converted it to the later single belt drive. I utilized the older style axle bracket, did not use the transmission mount pulleys and used a later mid mount (under the motor) idler setup. I don't remember the belt length but it did take some experimenting. The slot hitch can remain on the tractor with that older tiller. A piece of bar stock in the slot hitch and a short chain connected to the tiller for the lift. When I was all done I liked it better than the newer style tillers. The only disadvantage was that the axle bracket wouldn't work with a snow blade. That didn't matter to me because the C-160 had a blower on it in the winter and I used a blade on a GT-1100. Obviously you can easily swap brackets if you need to.
