I do not presume to know too much about Wheel Horse, so am asking you out there in WheelHorseLand if this is anything worth salvaging and perhaps reconditioning and fixing up. Or just let her sit there and slowly rot into oblivion? :confuse:

I'm not a WH guy either but I would still drag it home. Some of the tin looks to be worth salvaging. There's always some one lookin for tin.

Free for the taking is the price. All I have to do is go and pick it up.

Well, I took the picture today, but did not have the trailer, and the wife did not want to get out of the truck due to the tall grass, and many ticks. This is on a long abandoned farm in the middle of nowhere, so more than likely will wait until early fall to go and get it. Go see my other find in other hobbies & toys.

Ticks would not stop me. I would even put up with a couple of snakes as long as I had my "45" with me. Just make sure they are off the tractor before you pull the trigger. Those thing can do a lot of damage to a small engine.

Any tractor, even an LT, at that price is at least worth trying to save. If for no other reason than to save it for someone else who will love it and give it a new home.
