Back in December I bought a Power Ho 12BB chassis off ebay and finally got around to get it. Was a good deal for the money because it had the kick stand and rear hitch on it (which I didn't have).

The only thing it was 90 miles from me (not to far but far enough) and didn't just want to drive all the way down there to get it. So it finally made plans to go pick it up and stopped halfway to get some parts for a car I'm working on at the shop. When I talked to the guy amonth ago he said he had a sleeve hitch cultivator he would sell. But by the time I got down there he had sold it already. After he told me that when we were standing there jawwing I asked if he had anything else, he then proceeded to take me back in his "inventory" to show me another walk behind he had. As we were walking back there I noticed a pile of sears attachments, but didn't say anything about that yet. This is what he had. A Monkey Wards.....Trac Ho I think thats what its called. Forgot already walking to the house from the shed.

If I would of got there last week the frame on the front would've been straight yet. He had his bobcat back there to get a couple of things and this was in the way froze to the ground. Oh well nothing that can't be fixed. And sitting right beside it was the blower, a deal was made then we talked about the pile of sears stuff. Being more of a Bolens guy than anything wasn't after to much sears things, but there was a planter/seeder in the pile. Again a deal was struck and loaded it all up onto the truck.

The only real bad thing is all the seed discs are rusted through and don't know if they can be salvaged. Kinda excited about the planter ( the Power Ho chassis too), been wanting one to plant my corn and sweet corn in the spring.

Also got a line on one of them LTs with the little box on the back. The guy said it was a Gambles, but wasn't positive. Someone on here posted some pics of one awhile back. Haven't found them yet.

Why is it that some guys can fall into a pile of S - - - and come out smelling like a rose.

Good finds, by getting more than one thing on your trip you actually saved money overall versus a trip for each item.
