i have been paying payments to a very nice lady not far from where i live, for another FMC Bean Cutler that showed up on craigslist. i went and looked at it on the 5th of this month, and put a down payment on it after she agreed to let me make payments for the balance. i sold some things on craigslist, and finaly came up with the rest of the money yesterday. i went over and picked it up, and the implements that went with it, and brought it home.
these are the pics from the craigslist ad
here are shots of the engine
the original belt guide, there are 2- the other one is on the other side
here is the engine ID plate, notice it says "Wards" gasoline engine on it, instead of Wisconsin.
this is where the engine lift plate was cut at one time, and bent over to its new location. i have seen this on only one other Bean Cutler, and i think it may be the way the factory called for it to be fixed, after some sort of repair??
its ID tag, number J 29610
the grader blade, mounted on the lift bar
the box of parts for the cultivator set
the disk set
the moaldboard plow, minus the disk
the plow has a name, " EMPIRE"
the cable guide system on the steering pulley. notice someone took 2 sets of the guides, and mounted them on one another....i think they didn't want the cable grooving the pulley?
and the wheel weight set.
i will get more pics later, and try to fire it off this week sometime, i will let you know how that goes.
