 :cheers:  You're welcome Moe.  I still got about three more sets to go too.  I have not scanned that bunch yet and irrigation problems kept me busy today.

Thanks OE.  Don't see many of them around where I live.  My neighbor in Colorado had one but didn't use it much.  Your unit looks to be in good shape and perfect for mowing long runs along my driveway.  :)   Amazing that it is in good shape after 35 years.  Glad it works well for you.

I looked them up and did not know that Toro bought them 1986 and used the name until 2007.

  Thanks for sharing,  I am always amazed at how long those old tractor last and still run strong,  we have a late '80's era Craftsman with a 20 hp. Kohler engine, it's done our snow plowing for the last 8 years, it was well used when we bought it but it's given great service,  it's starting to get tired,  so my son picked up an '86 Bolens with the same Kohler 20hp. engine,  it comes with a wider plow, mower deck, and harrow,  all hydraulic.
  He took it all apart and rebuilt the front end,  put in new rear axles, hydraulic lines and wheels, brakes, tires, and starter,  now he's got the engine out of it and assembling the parts to rebuild it,  it wasn't supposed to be a total restoration,  but that's the way it's going.

Country and Rural Living Skills / Wheel Horse 312-8 garden tractor

Hey folks!  Here is a 1985 Wheel Horse 312-8 I picked up a while back.  Did some major tune up/maintenance work but she's looking and running great for a 35 year oldish machine.  Nothing was broke when I got it but it needed lots of refreshing.  It's got a good old Kohler 12hp K301s engine.  Had a 42" side discharge deck in really good shape with it.  Just this week I found a snow plow blade for it.  It's got lots of surface rust but I can clean it up and paint it before winter.  Anyways...here's the tractor:

Day I brought it home



After refreshing





Here's the plow put on!



I will trying to accumulate sleeve hitch attachments as good deals come available.

So anyone else have a Wheel Horse or other brand garden tractor to share on?  I'd love to see and hear about it!    So post it up!!!

Here are some of Moe's smaller bags.  Once again some really good stuff.  Tobacco tin and fire starter kit as well.

Very neat stuff Moe!  Heck even the blankets they're on look cool.  Love the era of those items.  The knives look awesome and Old Philosopher better be using that bowie!  Thanks for the pics Moe and Stan

Nice collection crash!  My first "real mans" knife was a Buck 110 when I was 13.  Still have it.  I inherited my wifes grandfathers Buck 110 from the 60's.  He used it while serving in the Coast Guard and then the rest of his life as his main user until he passed in his early 70's.  And when I say inherited I mean I stopped it from going to the garage sale when we got the call from her grandmother to come have a look before the garage sale opens  :-\  He'd be much happier knowing it will stay in the family and know his grandson he never got to meet will have it...heirlooms like this are the best to me because the utility, the vintage coolness, and the memory of loved one you may or may not have met all go with it...

OE I would like to see a couple of photos of the Wheel Horse garden tractor if you should decide to post any.
