Between the engine, and the hydraulic system I would say it is easily worth that, given it all works.

:iagree: Would need more surgeries to please the eyes, suppose once again this was much more about function than form.

I'd probably just leave it as is except for some paint. No other WH's in this yard, so it wouldn't feel out of place!

That thing is scarry looking!! Looks to have an old 8hp Briggs Model 23 on it, or thats my best guess. If I were closer I'd give him $100 for it, but I think the rest of my herd might be afraid of it. :bigrofl:

I would use the fool out of that thing. Leave it exactly like it is except for adding some kind of a bucket to the front in place of the slow blower. Not much use for one down here.
