I got this right before it was scrapped at my work. It came out of a building that was recently purchased.
I'll use it with my paint gun and other small tasks. I took it all apart, cleaned ,painted , and new wiring.

Electrolux Craftsman , 16HP Vanguard 2 cylinder , Automatic Rider

 

this Machine was at the scrap yard 2 weeks ago , the Machine operator wanted the hydro diff for a no steer trailer axle ,

 

so i talked to him last week & offered to make an axle for him to get the rider complete , so i made the axle from a gym weight lift bar  spring steel & cut the stubs of an ole rider front end & fitted 6" wheels ,

 

made it a drop axle so i took it in to him yesterday & i got the rider P8300100.JPG

 

the panels are a tad dented P8300101.JPG & the hood bracketry is bent inside  

 

P8300102.JPG                  P8300104.JPG

 

                        P8300105.JPG there is some parts missing & broke under the Machine & the cut deck is rusty holed in the middle   P8300107.JPG

 

the hydro diff is missing the input drive shaft & the pulley

 

  it's the Engine i'm most interested in though Vanguard twin & the rest is just parts & bits i'm thinking atm 

 

but in saying i that it did cost me 2 wheels & stubs an axle of sorts + the weight of the Machine on the scales at the scrap yard , roughly 150 to 200 KG
