No I don't have one and don't see getting one. Had many chances to do it, but they just don't fit in with my Suburbans and walkers. Being a member of the Db group and going to the factory shows at Kankakee, IL for 12yrs, I got a pretty good look at several of them and the guys that own them will tell you all you need to know. You have to watch loading them as you need 3 ramps or a full gate on the trailer.  A fully restored ones going price out here is around 3000 to 3500 dollars. attachments just make it cost more. Key things to look for other than the clutch are bad fuel tank(holes), and the screen missing off the rope start area,(catch your pants on the crank without it).

 

Thanks for the tips, Jeff.  The fuel tank is bright bare metal inside.  I was impressed.  The screen swings out from around the starter sheave, and it is there, too.

 

The only bad thing is tires.  But that figures. 

 

Are implements hard to find?

yes the rake is not common, but there are several out there. Most don't like to bring them to shows because of the size of it. the mower is the same, a big awkward item, that's hard to haul. Cultivators, plows and the dozer blades are most common.  Seeder go on the vator frame, so you have to have both to make it work right. The disc is another harder to find item.
