Gentleman was 'bearing a goodie from the West'. :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:

Said 'goodie' is the Haban 514A Flail-Mo that I bought from Steve Johnson out in Oregon :D :D :D

He called from Wellington, OH which is about 10 miles from me to get the final directions on how to get to my place. One thing he was concerned about was off loading it.

I told him "No problem, I can get it off.", and gave him directions to the parking lot just across the street from my humble abode.

Once he got here, I fired up the 1886 Forklift, and we had it off loaded in short order.

Gotta love the timing since I just got the forklift back from my 'tractor guy' on Friday. :thumbs:

So, with out further ado, here are a few pics of off loading it and a couple of pics of the Flail-Mo.

...  How's your storage system?

That is the VERY next thing on my agenda!

 

I'll be ordering a 12'x20' Shelter Logic Garage-In-A -Box within the next week or so.

 

I'll probably have to end up having to order a 2nd one as I have a feeling that I won't be able to get all of my stuff in 12'x20'.

 

It would help if I can get 4 of those snowcasters sold though  :D :D :D

nice score! what tractor do you plan on using it on?

is that fork lift made for the bolens or was it modified? that looks pretty handy to have around the homestead too.

I'll be putting the Flail-Mo on the HT20D.

The forklift is something of a 'mystery attachment'.

 

All I know is that the original owner sent it to Bowling Green, Oh to have it installed.

 

It's the only one like it that we have seen on a Bolens.  I have seen a pic of what appears to be the same one on a Sears/Craftsman, but it's hard to tell since the pic was so small.

That forklift is destined to be one of the best attachments I have seen!

Great addition OB.  That was a cool way to unload it too.  Nice looking storage.
