Wheel Horse 18 Automatic

Memorial day weekend is a busy weekend for us each year. My daughters march in the parade with the Girl Scouts and I with the fire department. It’s also the weekend of the yearly local Amish benefit auction which they use to pay their medical bills. As such we like to spend some time down at the cabin and attend the festivities. This year I also spent some time and used our Wheel Horse to put in a very small garden.

Small would be an understatement. 12×15 and only planted with potatoes carrots and sunflowers this year. Hopefully next year we will expand.

To start we had to break sod. Our field was a farmers hay field 20 years ago. It has not seen a plow since.

We have a tiller that runs off our Wheel Horse 18 auto that we have never used. This seemed like a good time to try it out. Famous last words

As you can see in the video the PTO is cutting out on us. There is plenty of clutch material so I’m thinking the problem is in the adjustment. Looking for any insight anyone might have.

The into time-lapse is just some playing. Still learning and getting my feet wet.

I took a couple of photos of the PTO parts. If more would help let me know

I took a couple of photos at the auction being careful not to photograph any Amish
