Nothing like a good road trip :D :D :D

 

I just came back from one that started in Oberlin, OH with a Bolens1000 loaded on the trailer. 

 

First stop was in Akron, Oh to pick up a Brinly 3-pt plow. 

 

Second stop was in Carney's Point NJ to drop off the 1000.

 

Third stop was in Edenton NC to pick up a Hard Cab and 5 snow blowers for the Bolens Large Frames.

 

Next we went to near the center of VA so we could drive the Skyline Drive through the Shenandoah National Forest.

 

After that we headed for home.  Took a week, and a LOT of gas, since we were in a 36' motorhome, but a good time was had by all.

 

I just made a deal for a fairly rare Bolens attachment that's out on the Portland OR area, and the wife wanted to know if we were going on a road trip to get it.  I doubt that we will, but it IS a thought  :D :D :D

Larry, do you have the second hydraulic circuit to run the angling cylinder?  I'm not sure if there was a remote manual angling setup for those.

Brian I had a friend of mine that is in an antique tractor  club and collects John Deere's  look at my blade and he said it doesn't appear to him that has ever been repainted. He also thinks I done good.

Larry about the belting, it just might work! I have heard of guys who did not want to scratch up their drives(be it concrete or Asphalt  taking stall mats bought from the farm store  and cutting strips to replace their cutting edge.

And I know my brother took belting and put it on the top of the Meyers plow on his explorer to keep less snow blowing on his windsheld.
