Was poking around in the storage area of the garage and ....

If it wasn't for Brian's pics of the 900 he bought, I wouldn't have known wht tractor it was for

What does the tag on the back say? I've seen that same set up for Cub Cadets, but I think the mounting set-up is a little different on those ones. I also see that the tag on top says Brinly. I wonder if they made one for their sleeve hitches as well. Anyone out there have a brochure?

Nice Find! :dancingbanana:
Good thing you didn't get rid of it.

I think that may be a reason why they are so hard to find. Its such an odd looking attachment, that most people don't know what it is...

Thanks for these pictures. My decal's are almost completely destroyed and now I know what they actually say :bounce:
I got a favor to ask.......could you please take the measurements of the decal that says 150 pounds for me. And if you could, take a closer up picture of the smaller decal on the side.
Incase I decide to restore this I want to have the correct decal measurement. Thanks

Here is a link to the Brinly Brochure thats in our manuals section.
I've searched and searched but there is very little information on this attachment.

Well I found the one that Brinly made for their sleeve hitches.

brinly dump.jpg

The hook up is just a standard sleeve hitch receiver.
And I guess that picture is pretty worthless. maybe I'll try a link instead.

Brinly Sleeve Hitch Dump Cart for Garden Tractor

Try that instead. ...And by the way, that was an awesome find!:smiley-score010:

Here ya go. The 150# decal is 2"x8"

The other tag is the Serial#. It's just in a different place than yours.

Man is that serial tag in super condition. If you repaint, do mask off that tag & save it.

At this point. I'm not thinking of doing any painting.

The 800 and the front blade are 'semi decent', and I do like the unrestored look.

I've almost got the 800 running. I'm getting it to pop a time or two on Starting Fluid, but it needs carb work.

I'm thnking I should just get a new carb, as the tab for mounting the 90* bend part that the air cleaner mounts on is broken.

Aren't you glad you never got around to putting handles & a wheel under it? :bounce:
