Ok, just took these pics today during a break in the snow. Here's the wheel horse 416-8, onan powered, 985 hours, rebuilt by onan at 800 hours. I am told its either a '93 or '94, (he couldnt remember which). I just got this tractor in October... for free, from the original owner with the owners manual. So far Ive got about 30 dollars into it, as it needed a voltage regulator when I got it. The hood needs some work, the fenders need work, a few things here and there need work, but overall this tractor is very sound. Its dirty and looks rough but I know that mechanically it has been maintained, I know the man it came from well.
Got it with a 42in right hand discharge deck that mows beautifully, but its getting rough. It also came with the front and rear wheel weights the previous owner made, I dont know what they weigh yet though. I picked the snow blade up from craigslist shortly after getting the tractor, and as you can see in 2 of the pics, I took it to work and made some shoes for it out of scrap stuff that we had laying around. They work wonderfully. I just sprayed them with some black paint just to keep them from getting too nasty over the winter. Next year I plan to sandblast the entire plow and repaint it. The grayish black paint on the plow blade is graphite paint applied by the previous owner, and it works great! Ill definitely be putting it on again after the plow is sandblasted.
And i just noticed that in one of the pictures, the illusive Northern Pennsylvania black wolf can be seen... Just kidding, thats our black german shepherd, Walker, laying in the snow... 1 1/2 years old, and 120 lbs of absolute spoiled brat... But an excellent companion and guard.
There are more tractors, and when I have some more time Ill put more pics up.
