Dad and I went over to New Jersey this morning to member Bruce Dorsi's house today. Dad bought a Bolens walk behind from him last year and we just now made it out to pick it up. It was about a three hour ride each way. The walk behind had wheel weights and a snow blade. Bruce told dad that he might have other stuff he would be interested in.


I got to meet Bruce at last year's Dover show but dad didn't get a chance to meet him. It was nice seeing Bruce again and nice for dad to finally meet him. Bruce took us out back and there were two doe standing there and they slowly walked away. Bruce said he used to feed the deer. It was amazing how they have adapted to being that close to humans. When we were getting ready to head home there were three more in the neighbors front yard.


I tried to get a couple pics of them.

Bruce had us take quite a few things with us and when we get the truck unloaded I will get pics of everything. One item was a Danhauser(sp?) which I think is for a little larger tractor than a garden tractor. Another item was a Reo powered reel mower and also a Lauson powered edger. There was also a Snowbird snow blower, a single blade trim 12" to 16" wide trim mower and some other stuff. I will get pics of everything tomorrow when we unload it all.


Here is a pic of the pickup load with dad and Bruce before leaving the family dealership building and going back to Bruce's place.

Thank you Bruce for your hospitality and taking your time to tell us and show us everything.

I tried posting it from my phone using tapatalk and it butchered it. I just got done editing the post from the pc. There was also a Snapper shredder and a push mower that I will have to wait till we unload to remember the make and model as it escapes me right now.

Wow Great Haul George!
Looks like you have enough projects to keep you busy for quite some time!

I cant believe how friendly those Deer are. The Deer were walking around in the back when we were there in July.

Looks like you guys need a bigger truck for the next time you visit! That's a lot of fun looking projects to reel in all on one trip! The deer are very tame up here as well. They are getting accustomed to humans. There are large numbers of them (up to 10 at a time) at my dad's place and they keep setting off his motion sensor lights. Lots of Oak trees nearby and they feed on the acorns this time of year.

Thanks for the kind words! ....I guess I was successful in fooling you guys! :laughingteeth:

It was a nice visit for me, as well. ....The 3+ hours together passed quickly (for me, at least)!

Did you take the time to stop in Hamburg on your way home? ....If so, what did you think?

We did stop at Hamburg but only for a bite to eat and to get some gas. We would have loved to of went in to Cabellas but we are going to make a separate trip out there some time so we can spend more time there then what we would have had yesterday.

We had a productive day getting things unloaded and getting them running. Only thing we couldn't get running was the Reo and that was because it is locked up. Might tinker with it some more once I get my Bush Hog back together. Will be posting some more pictures of each piece later tonight.

Glad you all had a nice time. Grand, if your going to get any more loads like that, better tell that kid of yours to order some helper springs.
