Some freebies from a co-worker. Vintage 60's snow bird snow blower, Craftsman tractor
A co-worker said he had some "junk" for me, what he had was a 60's Snow Bird snow blower with a briggs engine on it and a murray built craftsman tactor with a 12hp briggs. I'll post a follow up on getting the Snow Bird running.
Agway from the dump 8/7/10
Just got back from a dump trip and found this Agway at the dump (dumpled?).
I somehow managed to push it into the truck myself along with some scotts
push mower with a knocking tecumseh. The issue with this tractor is the
deck always engages when you hit a bump thanks to a worn height adjuster.
Blizzard 2011, Craftsman PGT 9500 (Simplicity Prestige), 42" 2-stage Snow Thrower
Blizzard 2011, Beloit, WI, USA, Craftsman PGT 9500 (Simplicity Prestige),
42" 2-stage Snow Thrower attachment, 200 lbs rear carrier weights, 100 lbs
rear wheel weights, rear wheel chains; no problems going uphill into deep
snow over ice. After making this video, I noticed that I didn't have the
throttle turned all the way up. I set it up to operating speed and the next
driveway went even faster. I
cleared 7 driveways and made a path down 2 blocks of road to free 3 stuck
cars in 6 hours on 1 tank of gas.

Biggest haul FROM the Dump, and the triforce of Scotts
We've had some pretty good junk picking days at the town dump before, but
last Saturday morning the dump was a trash picker's buffet. If only the big
truck was running! Plus at the end you get to see all three Scotts tractors
we now have.
Craftsman II GT6000 Garden Tractor Snow Blowing
Got this little setup for $300, put less than $50 into it to get her up to
speed. The previous owner had left it outside for the last two years, and
never had attached the snow blower. It took only making some brackets to
mount the blower, and this was my first use with her in the snow. I need
more weight in the back. The tires are 99% filled with windshield washer
fluid, and I plan on adding wheel weights and a weight box in the back.
Needless to say, I am very happy!

Some rusty old tractors we got for free
A lot of this is junk, but there is at least one diamond in the rough here.
It was a sight unseen must-take-all kind of deal, so we went with
Sterling's diesel Dodge truck and a borrowed trailer and pulled these
relics out of a poison ivy filled muddy yard and brought them to tractor
land. Oh yeah, and Dave got a bed liner for his Chevy for free too.

In this video I attempted to do you a few different camera angles both
inside and outside the cab. Some of you asked to see the snow blower in
operation so there's plenty of that in this video as well. Hope you enjoy
the video and thanks for watching!
