We got three tractors from side of the road before. Best one was hauling a bought tractor home and passed a decent Simplicity 1614! We dumped other one at our house and quickly went back. Still there along with five newer gas cans and lawn chairs! Guy come out while we struggled to load tractor( hydro release stuck) tells me you know it runs right?! Lol!
Never thought to try! He give me bagged too!

Not quite curbside, but almost.
It was probably going to be going out, but I traded a half hour light labor for it.
No specific use, but hey... it runs.

got this beauty on the last week of curb , befor x/mas 1480923033741.jpg

 

this engine lift ( hoist ) is most all functional ,  cept 2 wheels are seized and 2 repairs required on 1 rear leg as rust has made a hole in it from sitting out under a tree in a yard 

 

this unit has saved me some few $100  if to buy it , just awaiting repairs now when time allows

20161111_112819.jpg 20161111_112836.jpg

You find some great stuff Shane! If there was goodies like that at the curbside around here I would probably be in for a divorce!

Nice stuff you've been finding lately
Here is mine
8 pics of 8' x 18" dual wall culvert (used one already, that's why there is only 7 in the pic)
Stuff ain't cheap to buy.
I got lucky on this.

yes , thats why im single now most likely only the x partner was as bad as me ,if there is any culvert pipe it normally be no ggoood here so never get any of it , always damaged 

 

recently i have collected a lot of the white plumbers poly pipe though , various sizes from 2" to 6 "

 

but the curbside has been kind to me over the yrs though , got some good stuff over the yrs been following curb for 23 yrs now and the scrap side of it 20 yrs
