I had a guy come over last night at 9 PM (was supposed to be here at 6 PM) to pick up my Trakcycle. Here is what I got it return. I majorly over-traded for it, and he didn't even end up bringing the right Brinly that I picked out specifically. :mad2: I'm not too impressed with him, and I don't think I'll be doing much business with him in the future. Well, I got a rough, but solid, Model 10 lawn cart. I plan to fix it up, and add some paint and bed-liner. Does anyone make decals for these? I also got a pretty rough, but functional, Brinly plow. The one I had picked still had most of its paint still on it, and was all loosened up. This one needs a LOT of love (time and money...) Yeah. I'm not excited, but I can work with what I got. I really needed to move the machine I did before I started tearing parts off of it. He went to leave and his battery was dead... Great. I had to jump him with the Deere. I'll try and clean the stuff up and get some good pictures while its still daylight.

:shoot2: :D

Trailer has potential. On the plow, soak all joints/threads with a good penetrating fluid ( I like the Acetone/ATF mix myself). Once it's loosened up, take apart and paint. You'll end up with a couple good usable attachments out of them.

I figured I would. Its just annoying that I specifically ask for an attachment, that I know he has and is in extremely nicer condition, and he brings one worth half of the other... I wanted something that I don't need to restore ASAP, but would still look nice behind the 140 or just sitting in the garage... I wanted the Model 10 for my "fix it now" task, not both. Oh well.

Well, at least you have two units with potential and the cycle is out of the garage.

Good luck on the restoration(s).

Since he brought the wrong plow I think I would have loaned him the phone book to call a tow truck for the jump start and went back in the house.

Lol. Maybe I should have...

Little update:

I tore down the plow and cleaned the joints/bolts, and greased the adjustment screw.

I cleaned all of the mud off the cart, and blew it off. Not in that bad of condition. Needs all the metal straightened and it has 1 tire that won't seat, and 1 that is leaking.

Or the old ones off the front of the 140 once I get my new ones. :thumbs: I have a set of V61s from Miller ordered, and a set of Carlisle Ags.
