I was suppose to do this 2 weeks ago, but didn't pan out. So Fri. night I left for Indiana to pick up a few things and jus got back. Here's a pic of the load.

I'll get more pics in a bit  when unloading. I'm going to shut my eyes for a few hours.

Glad you had a good trip.

Got to give you credit, I dont know If I'd be able to take the suspense waiting to see that one item on the trailer :D

I wont say what it is but will wait to see if others spot the best piece in the lot IMO ;)

Would that be what looks like a reel mower? Rick

Nop, not the sulky or the reel mower. Although I'm happy I got both of them.

 

The funny thing is it started out being red and has a serial number of 2016.

The big tiller in the front right was my second guess.

Its a Bolens power tiller model 2071-01. I think it the same model as Brians can't remember for sure.  I thought it was all rusty until I seen it in person. But it actually was red and then painted green.

 

My cameras at the shop and the wifes gone with her smart phone right now, but will have pics soon.

I got things from 2 different people out there. Ben W. posted some of it from a guy in Ohio. He was going to meet me at Aaron's when I was there but it didn't work to meet. So he brought the stuff up to Indiana which Aaron stored for me til I got there.

 

Only the tiller, buzz saw, sulky, and Power Ho (with an engine but no attachments) I got from Aaron. A quite a few of you guys know him and would agree he's one of the nicest guys to deal with.

 

The guy from Ohio also was a great guy to deal with. He was glad that someone will get all that stuff fixed up (one of these days).

 

And now the pics. Itwill be a few posts being it won't let me load them all at once.

Its in better shape than I thought!

 

Yours is an earlier production Model as my serial # is 2273

These originally came with no recoil, looks like someone added one... The tank looks from a different model as well

other than that it looks all original.

Did you try and start it yet? :D
