I've been pretty quiet about this, but FINALLY got to pick up an attachment that I had arranged to buy last month. The seller and I started negotiations on Sept 4, and our schedules finally aligned.

I turned this trip into a "Two Fer", and picked up a Brinly Dump Attachment for Newpaws493 while I was at it, since it was just a wee bit off the route I was taking anyway.

It's the one that was in this CL ad: http://akroncanton.c...3308574855.html

It's in REALLY good shape, and the pic in the ad doesn't do it justice. Not to mention that was SUPER cheap!

After picking up the Brinly Dump...I continued on to McDonald, PA, and there is now a Sweepster for the Large Frames sitting in the bed of the F150 along with Newpaws' goodie.

It's in pretty decent shape. It does have a patch or two, but it should be serviceable after a bit of lubing, etc.

I'll get some pics and post them here on the morrow.

That dump attachment was a steal. Been looking for one myself, but nothing around where I'm at.
I'm assuming the Sweepster is one of those rotary brooms, right? Looking forward to the pics of your new attachment (having not seen one before).

Granted, it was a nice package, and I sure wouldn't mind havin' a 900. Costwise, the Brinly dump seemed like a non issue item to the seller and made it a perfect budget-buy for me.

Yeah, I just got the Dump Attachment for Newpaws.

In fact, I didn't even look at the 900. Seller knew I was coming and had it on his back porch when I got there. The 900 was in his garage, and I really didn't spend more than 15 mins there before I was on my way, as I still had to go to McDonald to pick up the Sweepster.

That Hydro lift looks good.

You will definitely appreciate that rascal when you need to lift/lower attachments like a tiller or snowcaster.

I have another one that I want to put on one of the G11s, but need to get the mounting bars modified, because of the Briggs engine they have.

It was a good package he was just asking to much for all of it..
