I bought this off of epay a couple months ago and was going to ship it Fastenal. When I found out we were going to Iowa, I decided to pick it up over in Washington, IL. The guy I bought it off of had got it to clean up debris off his property after his house was destroyed in a tornado last November. When I met up with him I soon realized that he was a member here and it all came together as I knew I had seen one of these here before. It's going to be a great piece for the shows. It's missing the original engine and I'm thinking of converting it a 3pt PTO driven rake similar to the full size hay rakes we used on the farm. Thanks David "77ddt" for coming out in the rain and cold weather to meet me with the rake.

I never saw one. I just watched those videos and they are neat little rigs.

 

Good luck with it :thumbs:

Great purchase, Brian!

The fella I got mine from said that it will do  great job of getting gravel/rocks out of the grass and back onto the driveway where they belong.

It was good to meet you face to face and I was glad that it found a good home.  I'll probably regret selling it after you get it up and running.  I still think it would be just the ticket for getting all the tornado debris out of our yard, but didn't have my shop available this winter to work on it.  I can't wait to see the finished product.
