They don,t come around as often as they used to but today we had great time at a local auction, not to far away and weather hovering around 32 f was not to bad. There was walk behind tractors, a sturdy old Gilson snow blower, a few Cushman reel mowers with Cushman engines lots of Wisconsin engines.
Old stationary engine and farm tractors and tools and equipment of every kind. Some walk behind implements of unknown origin, heavy duty Toro Whirlwind mower and a large fairway type Toro tractor.Picked up a Empire tractor and cultivator, tractor needs one tire, tube,pair of wood handles and the engine reassembled. Really needed the cultivator for the wheel and lift mechanism to finish the plow I got from Jamie this summer. So all and all a great day, prices on the Empires were a little surprising mine was $20. and the other $7.50 . Below scrap price I would have thought, hoping it did not end up there.
I know they looked tough but fairly complete really,seen worse come back to life . If I ever get Stateside need to bring back a couple of sets of handles really hard to get here. Cheers Mike
