Both Brian (T.D.&H) and my dad won auctions on ebay for stuff listed by the same guy. I went today to pick the stuff up. Dad won a Bolens 1000 with mower deck, tiller, and snow blade. Brian got 4 Simplicity walk behinds in varying condition with a whole boat load of attachments. I also have Brian's JD110 he had got a while back and I picked up while at PA Plow Day.

I didn't get any pictures of the Bolens yet, we got it right in the garage and started tinkering. Already got it to fire on carb spray. The ignition switch is shot and I wanna clean the carb. Also needs a new battery but that is to be expected.

I used the Massey 1655 today a good bit to haul bucked logs around to the back. Since I had to use the 1655 to unload the Bolens 1000 I took a couple minutes and moved Brian's JD110 to around the back of the garage. You know, typical red pulling green :poke:

I gotta figure out where we are going to go with all the Simpicity stuff LOL

I remember using one of those cord wood saws on a Simplicity back in the late 1950's - early 1960's. And I still have all my hands and fingers! Boy, do those babies sing when they are up to speed!

Good haul there George! Gotta love "red pulling green"... LOL Meangreen always wants to take pics of me whilst driving green, but when he had to use his 430 while pulling me on the 420 to his shop, I couldn't for the life of me get him to take a pic! He had his camera phone on him too! LOL

Well, atleast the hood did survive, until you pushed your Massey out of the way with my Deere, LOL. The Simplicities look even better then they did in the sellers pictures.. Many Thanks go out to George and his Dad.. Can't wait til June to get that stuff picked up.
THANKS AGAIN GUYS !!!!!

Lots of goodies on that trailer, love the 'skill saw' attachment. Nice tow hitch NUTNDUN. Brian, it looks to me like you have a stealth motor in that 110. How many horses is it? LOL

Kenny, The JD has a 12 HP CLOAKER engine under the hood, you can't see or hear it, buts it's there. The pictures prove it by puching that old Massey out of the way.

Hmmm, notice we can't see the front of the red tractor, or the Bolens.
I bet Grand has it hooked up pullin' both of them.
