Went over to the center of the state awhile back and picked this dethatcher up for Rick Show, the gentleman also had a Tube Frame rear mounted Mackissic sprayer (it was a rare find , it has the original lid for the tank he he). I wanted it. Got it home an saw it had a broken off mounting ear, finally got around to gluing one on today, (pastel green left over from painting my daughters outside table and chairs was all I had buddy). Thought I'd mount it up, try it out and shoot some pics. Funny I have Ricks and he picked up and is storing mine, taking to his place tomorrow and swap.

Does this mean the 1000 will be getting some "seat" time?

It looks pretty good on Kevin's 1050. I'm sure it will look right at home on your 1000.

I own one of these as well but have yet to try it, mine needed all 100 tines replaced ($$$).

If you're looking for tines they can be had for alot less with a bit of research, I believe I ended up paying around 0.75$ for OEM Bluebird ones, I have seen them as high as 3.00$!

Do tell, please, cheapest I've found them is $1.62 @ Russo Power.

Neat attachment! It looks like it's in wonderful condition and matches the condition of the 1050 well. I still can't get over how nicely preserved that all original 1050 is. What a fantastic machine.

Actually, that basic dethatcher is still being made, as a walk behind and as a self powered towable unit.

I hope that eventually you do try the seat out - I did not leave any remains of the former tenants inside - honest. 

 

Seats are made to be sat on as well as looked at in my humble opinion.
