It's funny how you look for accessories for months or even years individually, and then, all of a sudden, you find them all at once...and can't afford to buy them...all at once.
I responded to an ad for a Wheel Horse tiller on Craigslist. I picked it up last evening for $45, which I thought was an awesome deal! I realized , however that I didn't have any of the hitch parts to connect the tiller to the tractor or any of the belt drive train to make it work! :blush2: I knew that eventually I'd find what I needed.
This morning I went to a garage sale with a friend to look at a couple of Sears Customs. While we were there, I was small talking with the "proprietor" of the sale and I mentioned my Wheel Horse addiction. He said he had a name and location for a local guy who had a lot of Wheel Horse parts. So we road tripped there and he had 2 of everything Wheel Horse that you could ever want. After I was through salivating, I bought what I could afford (see the pics below).
Here are some pics of the tiller:

Here are some pics of the axle hitch, the cable guide, and the idler pulley that make the tiller work.

I also picked up this Clevis Hitch while I was there.

I also received the gift of an older Brinly moldboard plow which I do not currently have any pics of...but that's another thread. This one's been long winded enough.

Congratulations on the find/Purchase.
I know the feeling when you look for a part so long and then you end up finding a whole bunch of goodies.
I usually keep some extra $$ stashed away just in case something like this happens ;) LOL

Great finds. I know what you mean about things finding you all at once. It's been raining Bush Hog tractors on me for the last year or so.

Nice haul. Too bad available cash on hand is such a limiter when you find such a bonanza. Hopefully you can return there soon.

He's just about an hour and a half North of me. I'd have to have a small list or be in NEED of something, but it's not that far to go.
