Today, I finally caught the owner of this "GT salvage yard"-I'll call it---after a couple of years of trying. He gave me a very short-tour after I inquired about a Case 446 I noticed thru the fence. I HAD NO CAMERA so the pics will be late.
I know nothing about the 446-Can't afford to buy another GT'til my M12 is done, then he showed me 2 446s-enough to build one complete. $400 for the pair

Also, inside this fenced-in area-best I can remember

10 or 12 Cubs including 3- 104s, a 13??, a 11??, a couple "large cubs" maybe CCC cubs?
2 Masseys- 1 a nearly complete MF10 and the other a MF?Hydro
1 Large Bush Hog with trailing style mower
1 nice looking c130 WH, that he cranked over + another WH
Numerous small John Deeres at least 1/2 dozen
A complete Sears SS/16
3 or 4 Honda Mowers.(riders)
A Roper and a Jacobsen small GT
2 small fords 1 with 12.5 on the hood.
Countless MTDs, Murreys, Craftsman etc.
suprisingly few push mowers

Most of these looked in pretty decent condition with the expected paint weathering

So I'm asking myself the question you all have on your minds "Whatcha gonna Do??

Yup, that's what I was wondering. Which one are you getting first was another question.

Congrats on getting into that nice honey hole. Keep us posted.

Out of fear of persecution for not having pics, AND at the risk of life and limb, here are pics taken over and thru the chainlink.

Notes: Most of the cubs are back by the blue van and couldn't get there (except the 13?? near the carport)
I think the big machine behind the Massey and left of the JD is a Bolens Husky??
1 of the Fords is marked YT??
JDs legible from a distance were 60/or 80, 103, 111, 213

If you are talking about the one in the last picture...to the left of the Deere and with the propane tanks in front of it...I'm not positive, but it sure does look like Bolens Large Frame.

Wow, he has quite a bit of garden tractors and parts in there. It is amazing what some people stash away. It is a shame to see them sitting out in the open rusting away but it looks like there are a lot of salvageable ones in there.

So which one you buying first?

It does have the Bolens decal on the grill center

Remember the old joke about the young bull and the old bull on a ridge, looking down at the frisky cows below''...

Im at a loss of words right now. Looks like there is a lot of fun hidden behind those fences. Hopefully you can get some good deals, and a lot of them!

Nice find and thanks for the pictures.

Glad you were warned about what happens to people who find honey holes and don't take pics...
Anyone remember when member "Snufalufagus" did that? No one's heard from them since....

Thanks for the comments guys-I guess I'd better start learning more about these-and quick- I wish I could have got pics of the cubs,
the other 446 and the SS/16-but I think there will be time for that. By NE standards this may not be much but for this neck of the woods its a pretty big deal--I may have to send a bus to get you all in this.

I think I agreed to buy the 446s-one w/deck and 1 w/engine, I need the Masseys , the SS/16 looked pretty good and all those cubs are heart-stoppers. :mecry: :mecry:
