Here's a pic of my 854. I use it regularly to push snow. In the spring/summer it pulls the yard cart. I usually take it with me to the GT shows.

It has front/rear wheel weights, 2 link chains. The headlights were added by the original owner, and since I needed lights, I restored those rather than pull out my remaining hair looking for originals! :)

Well, if your not familiar with Wheel Horses, the 854 was the last of the "round-hood" tractors. The "8" stands for 8hp (Kohler), the "5" stands for electric start, and the "4" stands for the year 1964.
I added front wheel weights, (mounted on the inside) and WH hubcaps. Not sure if either are correct for the year. Yhe rear weights are JD painted WH red. There's 65lbs of additional weight under the seat. The seat cover BTW is original/unrestored in perfect condition. (Not bad for 40 years old). The rear tires are 8.5's but should be 6's. I have a set of the correct ones. I don't know if you familiar with the WH blades, but they are adjustable from the seat. Which is real nice on my old body!

I've got a 655 snowbound in the shed in the backyard, I really want to get started on. But I've gotta finish up a 1966 Simplicity Landlord 101 first. Theres a pic of the Landlord on my web page listed in my profile.

Gotta run, my hands are hurtin from "Arther" right now... L8r!
