Good day. I just finished a full restoration on my 62 Wheel Horse 702. Trans , engine have all new bearings and seals. Sand blasted every part with an epoxy primer and painted. Made one cut with it to tweak the set up and it works great. My issue is it looks too good to cut my grass full time.

My question to the group....what do you think its worth? I'm in Ont Canada. 

 

Thanks Chris

Excellent job!! :thumbs: That is one great looking Horse!! As far as a price, that's a hard call. I like to restore my tractors also but the trend has tilted toward all original, so pricing is a hard call. I've found that I can never get back what I spend on a restore, nor do I expect to. A nice tractor like yours could bring 4 digits to the right guy, but then a friend of mine picked up a nice looking 702 with an older resto for $500. I would check in your area to see what round nose horse's with a Kohler are going for. As always though you need to find a price where you & the buyer are happy.

It is too nice to mow with. Pick up a freebie LT, get it working and use it to mow. Save the WH for special occasions. Good Luck, Rick

You have done a beautiful job on that tractor, as an example I sold a 1961 551 WH that was not nearly as nice as yours and I got 900.00 for it so in my opinion yours is worth 1,200 easily or more they are very nice looking machines and cooool. Just have to find the right buyer, but I would not sell it no no no.
