Wheel horse 310-8

I have a Wheel horse 310-8.

IT was built in 1985?.

My problem is the limit on available places to get parts.

Toro bought out wh in late 80's early 90's

Real hard time.

Hello: mechrus

Potential sources for manuals and or replacement parts:

BILLIOU'S 1-209-784-4102

L.S.THORPE CO. INC. 1-617-776-2445


I do not have any affiliations nor vested interests in any of these retail parts suppliers. Provided solely to assist with locating parts.

Small engine parts can also be found at your local small engine and lawn mower repair shops listed in the phone book.

Other small engine service and repair professionals, replying within this forum, may be able to offer you additional locations and or sources to obtain manuals and or parts.

Check back on your topic several times.

Adding on:

Engine parts are sourced from the engine maker (Tecumseh, Briggs, etc). Chassis and equipment parts are sourced from that OEM.

RCPW.com may be able to help out too.

Hello mechrus!

Wheel horse has been toros' name for a looong time. Toro parts are only available through a toro dealer. It is very inconvenient for toro owners who don't live near a toro dealer. Supposedly, this is toros way of keeping their dealers in business, but it also is one of the very things that hurts their business I believe. I don't have a toro dealer in my area...the closest one is an hour away. Some people have moved here and brought their machines with them, only to find out that they have to take a trip out of town to get parts when they need 'em.
