What started out as a trip after Bolens Gardener ended up being a trailer load. Arrived at the destination and looked the Gardener over and it looked complete, engine was free, chains were heavily oiled. Cables and a couple hand control were seized but all in all it looked good. Tires were completely shot which I knew ahead of time. Owner came up with two brand new 5.00 X 12 tractor bar tires, never mounted. Wanted $20 for the pair. SOLD ! Got it loaded and he wanted me to look at a couple David Bradly machines he had. Outside off to the side was two near complete machines. One had a plow attached, another attachment was by the second one. Both Briggs motors were free. Both need external parts like air breather, muffler, etc. One has factory wheel weights. The other - - well it has car rims full of concrete bolted to the tractor rim for weight. Have to take the weight off to check the air in the tire ? ? ?
The price was right as he wanted to get rid of them. They were his Dads and been inside until he put them out for a garage sale a month ago. Didn't sell of course. So now they are in my pellet building.
Will get the Gardener up and going first. Then will see which one take the least amount of work on the DB machines. They have different motors and are different models of machines so not sure much will interchange.
