Hi guys. Dad had a guy stop and want the Bolens we are selling. He offered dad alot of machines in trade. I was working ,so wasn't home. Dad got some money and two tractors AND two push mowers!! He did good! This machine the guy dropped off after work tonight. It runs nice and seems to work. I saw some wiring I need to address. The deck needs bearing,and seems all there. Guess I am looking for a new job!! LOL :sidelaughThe Scotts tractor running. - YouTube

Once again Eric, you get more things In a day for FREE than I get in a year for for $400..

Maybe people around me just don't have as many tractors and mowers....

Anyway, amazing hauls as always.

Thanks guys,but the story continues today! The fellow comes this morning and drops off the rest of the haul! He is real nice guy,gave dad a tip on a huge Craftsman twin Kohler a guy owns at his shop. He also gave dad more stuff! A Homelite chainsaw dad gave to Bob ,it seemed seized. A John Deere ( ? ) weed wacker,runs but missing muffler and wacking end. Two Toro electric start mowers,one in real good shape, the other workable. A Simplicity Tractor without deck! I'm fired I guess! He isn't even cutting me in of the profit!?! ;) In grate!! :)

Hi Austen, we are going to try to fire it today when I get the jumpbox out. We would like to clean up from winter. ALOT of scrap metal laying around, some tractors that died and some parts that passed away! LOL Looks bad! Move the tractors behind house so it don't look like a tractor lot!

Moved them today motorhead! Looks better already! We rocked this day! God really blessed us! We sold TWO tractors and one pushmower on Ebay!! Then guy coming right now from Contiecut for the bagger off the Simplicity as the guy who bought it didn't want bagger and this guy called last week begging me for it! I have only one pushmower for sale now! The John Deere 111 is running and mower deck works and engine sounds good! The Simplicity in prevois pictures does run, carb float is stuck. Great day! The push mowers dad got also run and work!! :)
