Well, it's been a LONG 5 days. I know, the sow was 3 days, but it took a day to take the Bolens down, and another day to bring them back.

Friday, was something of a bust as it started out cool, and then got cooler with rain. Cleared off late, with the promise of better weather.

Saturday, was an absolutely gorgeous day. Temps in the low 70's and low humidity, it couldn't have been better. CaseGuy stopped by and we chatted a bit, but he had to keep moving since there was just SO much to see, and he was only there for the day.

Sunday, was pretty much the same as Sat. Only difference was that there were fewer people, and the Amish were absent.

I did buy another Bolens at the show. This one is something of a "Franken Bolens". I'm not gonna say what it is, but I will give ya'll a hint. I have only seen ONE like it. Seller will be delivering it sometime this week, and of course, pics will be posted.

I also have a line on a Large Frame hard top cab. It would go well with the HT20D for plowing snow this winter. I'll be checking it out later this week, and if it's not too high it will be coming home with me.

Anyway, I didn't take all that many pictures this year. Instead I took a few videos which I now offer for your perusal, and will post the rest of the few pics that I did take.

With the exception of the Sawmill vid, the other are all taken in the tractor/engine area. There was also a huge Flea Market area that was easily 2x the size of the tractor/engine area.










And now the pics:

Note...the Yellow York TURN-O-BOUT belongs to another GTTalker, DougT. Danged interesting piece of equipment. It's lever steered and Zero turn. Had a nice chat with him as well. I wanted to get a pic of that itty bitty G8 along side of the HT20D, but the battery went south on it and I couldn't move it out so we could park them side by side.

The front mounted sickle mower on the front of the Cub Cadet is one of the rarest attachments made for a Cub. I believe only a few thousand were ever made.

Thanks for the pics and Videos.
Do you happen to have another picture of that Ride-a-matic that shows the decal on the belt guard decal better? I need to find a good pic of that decal so I can have one made when I restore mine.
