Hey guys, I'm hardly new to the site but new to the wheelhorse forum. I'm considering buying an old wheelhorse 857 and had a few questions that hopefully somebody can help me out with. First of all I don't know much about wheelhorse tractors so if there's anything that I need to look out for with this model let me know. I think it's a '66. It has a 8 hp kohler which smokes but that doesn't concern me too much, I can rebuild that with no problem. The tractor is said to slip out of 3rd gear and you need to hold it in for it to work, this concerns me. Does anybody have an idea about what could cause this and whether or not it would be fixable, is this a common problem with these tractors? One other thing is the gas tank is mounted on the side of the hood. I can tell this definitely isn't this way from the factory, my best guess is it had fuel pump problems so this allowed it to be gravity fed? No real question with that one but just some more information about it. The other question I had was it doesn't have any attachment at all. I would eventually like to get a snow plow and deck and wondered if these are typically available or are they hard to come by? Any ideas as to value on something like this? Thanks for any feedback on this stuff.
