You didn't get one of the yard rollers? Good for smashing cow pies. Great fun.  :thumbs:

 

Yep, got a pair of those as well, both slightly used.....store returns.

I did too much today.  Not feeling well from all the lifting and stuff.  Neck & shoulders aching, fingers more numb than usual, and stomach not feeling right.  I'll need to take it easy on myself tomorrow.  Seems every time I have a good day, I pay for it!  Will I ever learn!

Normal aches & pain levels today.  Got all the stuff unloaded & tucked in the milking parlor and some in the shop.  The YLT4000 Craftsman mower is parked in the shop, along with the power seeder.  Both run like new, and I mean literally like new.  The Craftsman was only used to pull & test vac wagons, and the deck wheels have never even been adjusted to hit the ground and still have the mold line plastic flash.  There is still a tag on the seeder stating all hours spent testing...85 total hours.  Has the 2 oil change hours marked down as well.  All it needs is a slicer shaft with blades, which I found on ebay brand new, delivered for $80, and a gas cap, which the Brinly guy said they borrowed off it.  The list price for this exact seeder is $3,985!  I should do well when I sell it.  The mold tits on the drive wheels still show some, and front tires have all the tits on them.  It's like new other than some dirty.  Came without stickers, but I have pics online and can make them myself.  When I finish it, I'll take it around to local lawn care businesses and likely find a buyer.  

  The JD tractor was rough, but had compression, so I paid $70 for it just for the engine & like new tires.  It won't do more than cough, acting like a sheared flywheel key, but I suspect it's the ignition ignitor bad.  

  I'll post some pics later this evening.  Got to pull the JD under roof, and put away a couple more things.

Never been to a sale where I was able to buy stuff like you did. Sure would be interesting to be at a sale like that. I'am pretty sure around here the prices would be what you'd have to pay in the stores. On another note it looks like the grass is still nice and green , sure envy that.

I went thinking to just get a few things I could use, but seen there was plenty of room to make some extra cash from buying more to resell.

What do you use those reduction engines for?

I've never had a use for one as I always use side shaft engines for go karts and minibikes

They are used a lot on mixer equipment such as mortar mixers.  What Brinly did with them I don't know.  I believe once the reducers are removed, you have a normal crankshaft there.

I picked one up removed stuff and had a funky stepped crank on it. Please post what you find.

The one I had I replaced the side case, crank ect to use it in my application.
