I picked this load up yesterday afternoon. I was told that the one

with the Tec (repower) is a VC model. I don't know which model the

other one is. That buzz saw has caught my interest. It can be pivoted, so

the blade can cut horizontally down low. A weed wacker on steroids.

Nice haul!!  

 

We are going to have to talk about that tiller attachment when I get there for that ABN, since the sickle mower = "over my dead body".

 

I was wondering where the mount was for the push blade, but I see it on the tractor with the engine.  Just missing the long bolt for the pivot.  I'll get you a shot of that "tomorrow".

 

 

By the way, I don't think that engine mount is OEM.  It is cool, nonetheless.

 

I also have an adapter you may be interested in.  It lets you attach some of those implements to the front of the Simplicity.  I will bring it along.

Quite the load! Those old rush and log saws are real head turners at shows. Do you have a blade? I have a spare, but its only good for looks...a it frail from age.

That's the correct dozer blade? Owner wasn't sure.

When I get to working on this, I'll tear that Techumseh and mount off. I have another

Wisconsin that should fit.

The tiller turns freely. I think it was the only piece stored inside.

I don't have the blade. What size should it be?

Good Stuff.

I think you did good, Will.  Are you going to keep them?  Won't it make Massey hall collapse having the wrong brand inside?

That's quite a big collection of attachments and tractors to get in one trip.  The replacement engine is a Snow King which doesn't have an air cleaner. I hope they were only using it in the winter. A dust diet is not good for engine life. Looks like both tractors have new or very low use tires on them which alone is worth some $$.

Here are some shots of my plow.  The mounting bracket is for a smaller Waterloo, but you can get the idea of how the blade mount & pivots.  It looks like you mount is adjustable for different height tractors.

Sherwood; nice haul. VC needs a Briggs 19. Blade is Sim. but you need the adapter for it and your snowblower. All Sim. front mount implements mount the same as your sickle and weight and will fit on any Sim. walk behind 2 wheeler.

 

Can. DB Owner; are you looking for a sickle mower and a rotor tiller for Sim. walk behinds? I may have what you want. I think they are complete but need some work. I can email pics if you are interested...Dave
