I have a pair of them. I got them from an estate type sale about 5-6 years ago thinking I could use them as spares for my zero turn. Turns out these are about 2x the size of mine. (mine are Eaton 7's)
I never seen them work, the old guy had them under his bench "forever" and I brought them home and they have set under my bench instead, ever since. They do turn freely. that's all I know about them.
I'm trying to do some cleaning up..... at least it sounded like a good idea but I ain't getting very far.
One hydro has 2 paper tags on it/ mostly unreadable.
One of those tags is a "Sears merchandise return" tag saying not to put them into inventory. who ever returned this one was from Wa state, that's about all the handwriting I can make out.....on the other tag, I can't hardly make out anything/ but it's full of handwriting on one side.
They both have the same numbers stamped into them... "MADE IN USA" Next line reads . L1100 039 next line reads B2SB CCW
Being Sears, I'm guessing they may have come from (or been intended to go on) an FF series as that was the only hydro tractor Sears sold that was beefy enough for something like this;
They are very clean (not "greaseballs") but are dusty from the shelf
being that I live 3 miles fom the old Roper plant, I'm guessing that they probably came outta there. At one time everyone that lived around here, worked there. but I was in high school and living 30 miles north of here, around the time that they went under.
IDK what their working condition may be, judging by the caps on the hydraulic fittings I'm inclined they have been rebuilt or at least repaired at one time. I see smaller (also used) ones going for STUPID prices on feebay, there's a pair of used Eaton 7s like what's on my zero turn on there right now for like $325 each. Ridiculous. (they were $260-some last week something like 20% off) still ridiculous.
Assume that these need to be torn into (if they don't, then you get a bonus!)
I do not know what to ask for them, but gotta start somewhere. I'll start at $40/ea plus the ride, just to put some kind of number on them... I am in Kankakee IL Pick-up locally is preferred.
Me putting pictures up? I'm rolling off the couch laughing about that idea (computer idiot)
