Was there any issues with the 16 Onan? I know they should be the same as the 18-20 hp models. Reason is I found a very nice one within driving distance and wanted to get it if no known issues.

What would a 1989 516-H be worth with a 48" SD deck in about 8 out of 10 condition with less than 800 hrs?

thanks.

The 516-H is a 1988 model number 31-16OE01. It uses the light duty 700 Eaton hydro so ground engaging attachments are limited to a tiller.
The 1988-89 518-H also used the 700.
Most other 500-Series use the 1100 Eaton transmission.

Couldn't work out a fair deal on the tractor. I didn't know these old WH's had gold in them.

I will keep looking.

I heard that! Folks are real proud of them down our way, aren't they :D

I saw what I thought was a C series w/a twin engine just down the road from me. The fellow was mowing w/it and it sounded real good. I was surprised to see it. It was about a 1/2 to 3/4 mile west of me on the right. I bet you know where I'm talking about :D I also bet he'll be mulching leaves w/it now too.

Saw another mowing in the subdiv right beside me. I barely saw it but could hear it. It was definitely an HST model w/at least a 14hp Kohler single. Real strong sounding.
There is either an 875 or 876 in Dandridge on craigslist. It only has a blade & no deck. It has been steadily dropping in price but it's still sorta high. He listed it real high at 1st :D
I'd be interested in it for a spr/parts tractor for my 876 bank mower but it's still alittle too high IMHO.
They don't come up for sale often and when they do it seems they must have put some gold in them :D

Good luck
Dave

Yep, I know exactly where you are talking about west of you. I stopped and talked to him one day, he has 7 WH's and did not want to sell any of them.

Oh well.

I bought a 417-H with a blown engine, and it had a 1100 in it.

For the most part- but not 100% of the time, Wheel Horses 300/400/500 series that had model numbers ending with "-A" used the 700-series Eaton. 312-A, 417-A, 314-A for example.

The "-H" designation used 1100-series Eatons with hydraulic lift. 312-H, 416-H, 520-H, etc...

Then came the 516-H, and 518-H with the smaller 700-series pump. Funny thing was, the European version of those same machines used 1100-series pumps with hydraulic lift. The domestic models used the smaller pump with manual lift.

Just another WH rule with a quirk that makes it not apply to everything.
