Well, some of you know I was at the scrap yard on Monday but didn't bring anything home due to a change in my plans. And I told some of you about a homemade snow blade, which I forgot to look at. The guys there set it aside for me and I went back today to look it over. I forgot to measure its width but it is 100% homemade and stout enough to use for more than just snow and not bend. I believe it to be about 4 foot wide though, and it will be going on the Caterpillar when I get to that stage. As heavy as it looks, I was surprised how light it felt, but it still to heavy to lift by myself (drag an end lol). I also had the score I have been waiting for ever since I knew they were making them (and sued over it...). I have not determined its model yet (looking after I post this) but it is a SPRINGFIELD front tine tiller (reverse style). It has the original engine and Springfield decal on it to boot, and it isn't destroyed either. I will take a pic of it tomorrow. Between those two items I spent 50 bucks. Good day indeed.

Hey, sounds like a great haul Casey. Neat that you found a SF Tiller. If you could find another, there's your 2 gang tiller for behind the Cat LOL

Alan, I thought about it and decided no lol. I believe it to be a Model 325R Springfield Horizontal Shaft B&S version tiller. Built after 1960 and before 1964ish. I can get the exact year off of the B&S tinwork, but it will have to wait another day... when I drop the tank off, dang LOL.

Good for you Casey. I used to have a ton of fun cruising the scrap yards. Bloomin liability issues has really cut into that though.
Keep up the good work.

The items are outside, and I forgot to get pics of them today. After I got back from the scrap yard today I fell asleep, woke up to late for pics. Today I grabbed a tiller to match the other one I am using for the homemade tiller, some new tiller wheels for my Springfield tiller (one was bad), and some marker lights (turn signals for fender tops) and couple odd things I could not stand (brand new hardware). I also saw a guy bring in a National today that was considered worn out for golf course useage. I did not save it, but Chuck (the equipment operator there) said he like it due to the wide stance for possible mowing his bottom land (not a golf course) so he set it carefully aside, as there was no rust on it, and not even a scratch hardly. Anyway, I got some stuff in the mail today I need to go open, be back later, pics tomorrow for sure.
