Purchased my first Wheelhorse tractor and tiller today. After a couple hour field carburetor clean fired right up. Runs quite well. Needs the throttle cable repaired. And some operator training on how the electric clutch for the tiller works.
It is a hydro drive. Moves right along. Yet to figure out what the lever is for on the center console down by the seat.
Tiller raises but does not stay up, and per the previous owner, will not dig into the dirt, only bounces across the ground.
Model # 1 0420 6 Serial # 752795
Engine #'s: model # S Serial # 2151584 third # 601248

Welcome to the forum.

Your model number is just the 1-0420. The 6 is not used but if you subtract 5 from that 6th digit you get the model year. 6-5=1=1971

We don't have the 1971 operator manual but here is the 1972. I haven't checked to see if the engine and wiring is the same.

The tiller sold in 1971 but not necessarily the one you have.

Would anyone know of a front blade or a drag blade that could fit this unit? I live in the Portland, OR., metro area.
