You just don't find many unopened cans. These are 1 gallon jugs. Picked them up at a tractor show over the weekend. A dealer friend had a few of them and there was a guy at the show that had the complete setup on a cub.Only thing is i told him that i would not sell them so he gave me a few cans.

Bob, if you ever change your mind about selling a can, please let me know. I have one of these fogger set up's, and would really like to display an original can with it. No hard feeling you choose not to, but I'd be very interested in one if you did!

Great find. I cant imagine there are many left that are full and in that good of shape.
I hope I can find one of those blitz fog setups for my Bolens someday....

Sorry but i made a promise to my buddy that i would not sell them.

There is no date but he thinks they were from around 1979 or 80

Wow that's pretty cool.Usually cans like those rust out from the inside and leak.

Well I'll be.Pyrethrin is very good stuff for killing insects like large bees and every small bug that happens to get in it's way.

Had no idea it has been in use for over 100 years till I read about it on Wikipedia.

It's a good read.

Bob, I have one of those old blitz foggers brand new in the box. It came with a quart of the stuff you have. I can only imagine just how not EPA friendly that stuff is.

Ken,
What brand of tractor was the kit for? I'm assuming its for Bolens?
Did it come with all the mounting hardware?

They were universally sold. Mulitple brands. They all used the same ad sheet, and changed the logo in the corner. The list of brands they were accepted for is here.

I knew they were sold "Universal" but was wondering if they had different mounting hardware available depending on which brand.

I'll look, but it came with a lot of nos bolens stuff I bought. It was a sealed box, the hardware is in there.

I'll dig it out and take a few pics.
