Cool puller! Did you run it?

My dad got an old 4 hp WH in the sixties. It came in pieces from the PO in boxes and he put it back together. We cleared paths and more in a 2 1/2 acaer abandoned apple orchard. Really, it was a blast using that WH :) There's more ... the house had a dirt cellar and central sewers were mandated. Good thing, we were on shale. Had to dig out for the install. Dad rigged a box and welded a trailer together that I still have. He built a hoist and an elevated rail system to lift the box out of the basement via the coal bin, push it out over the trailer and dump it. Reverse the motor, lower the box back down into the basement for another go round. Told ya all that to tell you this... we had to go down the hill to a neighbor that wanted the fill. Day after day I did this after school. The old man love me for doing this and I couldn't wait to do it either. So here's the punch line. After many years the rear left loose when I was taking a load down the hill. I road it out and never jacked the load! My shorts changed color :shock: We worked the hell out of that little 4 hp WH for quite a few years and it died when I was about 14. I'll never forget it!

Bought a C-85 (8HP) with mower that had been mowing a Post Office in central NYS for ever (Coeymans). Put it in the truck and have mowed for 5 more years - no problem and I do a big area. Just bought a Raider 12 HP with a 42" deck. Guy Bought it new and his dad mowed the lawn for 40 years (VERY well maintained - you WH fanatics know how to look after them). Now dad is 85 and the son thought he needed power steering this year so I bought it and keep two 4 acre show horse pastures mowed with it - whizzing along at high speed 2. I am so impressed that I've got my eye on a D 250 - now that is a brute but the guy wants too much money for it (for my taste anyway) but I am trying. Perhaps I will have to sell the weedwacker I gave my wife as a Valantines Day present. Rated at 19.9HP (to meet regs) but must put out 35HP with that Renault B800 engine.
