I actually saw this yesterday sitting in the guy's driveway. I was gonna drive down today and get pics but ended up working in the garden and didn't make it. But tonight George and I were going to go right by it on the way to the tractor club meeting. Tonight he had it sitting right along the road with several other items. I took the camera along so I could take some pics. I don't know anything about these machines but was hoping some members would at least enjoy the pics.It looks to be all there but rough. The guy said that it belongs to a friend up the road and he wants $100 for it.

Thanks for posting the pics Gorge! I've seen a few of those at shows from time to time and I think I got some decent pics of one last year at the Saegertown, PA show. That doesn't seem like a bad price for it if it's running.

you should have brought it for that cheap price, the parts are worth that much or more.

No I didn't have any interest in buying it. Just thought that since they are somewhat rare the folks might like to see some pics. Had it been an old Bolens tractor, it probably would already be sitting at our place.

I don't know Alan. It is a walk behind and we already have some stored at our place that will eventually go to Texas. While my main interest was posting pics of an unusual machine, I had no interest in buying it,just post some pics for the members. But I sure would not want it to go to a scrapper. I can't stand the thought of any of our old machinery not being taken care off. It may not be restored, but it will be preserved hopefully

If I saw it, it would be been loaded in my truck before the sun set. I have been looking for something like this myself.
