I was very fortunate in acquiring some attachments, machines, and NOS parts yesterday.
Two NOS Rototillers, one slightly used rotary mower, two new rotary mower attachments, one still in the box, and numerous NOS parts.

Ditto on the brand question!  What brands are the NOS items?

Nice catch :thumbs:

I take the rotary mower attaches to the tiller, looks like you have two of the same, looking good.

Look at those old Lauson/Tecumsehs!  I love the old style on those things.  If they are indeed NOS, you've got two of the few left.  Ditto on the Power Products. 

 

All I can say is that I'm extremely jealous.

 

What was this, dealer inventory?

The two rotary mower attachments mount on the Model 2 and 3 Rototiller.  The other rotary mower is a Rototiller Mow-Till.  The attachments are a rotary mower, which the Mow-Till has mounted and the red one with the tiller is called a Talisman made by Rototiller, Inc., Troy, NY.  The Talisman, I think, is a later model of the Mow-Till.  The blue one is called a Garden Girl made by Porter-Cable while they owned Rototiller.  That one has a Power Products 2-stroke engine while the other two have Lauson engines.

This stuff came from an old, long time dealer, which closed a long time ago.  There is a NOS Porter-Cable 133A there that I will eventually get.

 

No Bolens stuff on my truck, but I will check if there is any at the place.

Yes, from ear to ear!  Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would have the attachments and tillers that I now have.  Thankfully I have a great fellow collector that lives down the street from this long closed dealership.

I had never heard of a Schnacke recoil before.  My friend from Troy, NY mentioned that.  Were they special?

No, around a long time, slight modifications towards the end, a god awful recoil to work on.

Congratulations on that great haul.  I really like the paper still on the handles of that one tiller.   :thumbs:
