i Have had some of these riders for some time now & it's time they were pulled for parts and bits to tidy up the graveyard some 

PA040076.JPG this is a COX  new generation 13 HP blown engine unit , not sure of the yr 

 

the next 1 is a MTD rear engine mounted rider ,PA040077.JPG

 

only got it for the trans diff for my MTD gold series 2001 model but other parts to be kept 

 

PA040078.JPG the diff is now already out ,

 

PA040079.JPG this MTD is regular 2000 model 12-36 , it has near new drive belts belts and intermediate pulley to replace mine and a few good uniball joints for the steering 

 

i already have dismantled in the last 5 months a Craftsman 16-42 awaiting more parts for mine yet , a bolens st120 , bolens 1250 rear engine type i think 80's abouts had 5 sp peerless in it ,

 

& 1 Greenfield 10 = 10 HP, how they classed them (class Greenfield 8, GF10 , GF11, GF12) numbers represented engine size  in the classes & a Rover Rancher select-a-ride 13-36 duel cut

 

some of it's parts have been devoured fixing 2 other Ranchers of mine , all these have come from Curbside & Scrapyard & rubbish tip

I always enjoy when it comes time to pull parts off the collection of junkers. Builds up the easily available parts, Lets me know what I have in inventory, cleans the yard, and puts money in my pocket.

There are always bits and pieces to salvage off these old hulks. Sadly some ,in the end, are destined for the scrapyard. Keep up the good work :thumbs:

lol i didnt know there was 2 ways to spell strip 

 

see most items of any sort is made in metric measure now , well mostly , so the wrecking of these is an advantage to me just for the SAE type nuts & bolts alone , much less the Goooooood parts for later use ,

 

some chassis's will end up as scrap but , i'll store them all for a bit 1st to see if there any use ,, am going to use a couple as long 4 wheel trailers to see if there any advantage to me on rough ground

It is spelled "stripping" LOL, It is a very common spelling error so we all knew what you meant! Good job saving all you can from these old relics. I had 6 or 7 old garden and lawn tractors that I scrapped 11 years ago before I knew of this site. I didn't keep a thing from them. We were getting a new trailer house and I cleaned up the yard too well! Wish I knew then what I know now.

DAC , i'm blaming spell check because it didn't  give me the difference between , & i just tested it to make sure  ;)but yes i have tossed a lot out too many yrs ago when i used to make go-carts & such & sell , wasted a lot of stuff & never saw the point i might need the stuff 1 day , but in saying that i did keep a lot as well
