I had a fellow ask about the deck that I have listed on the classifieds. The tractor is at my fathers shop, and he was there to get some parts. I ask him if he had an AC 312 and he said yes that he got it from the county dump. Seems he was at the dump getting rid of some trash and someone had thrown the tractor off there. He took it home and it ran fine, but didnt have a deck. What luck. ddh

I have picked up tractors, mowers,tillers,and attachments before.Not really at the dump but at the local metal recycle place.Lots of stuff goes in that place....I would like to live next door so I could see it going in there on the trailers and trucks.In fact just a couple weeks ago I picked up a free good 48in mower deck for my Wheel Horse.Picked up a snow thrower for the W.H. there once and came home and posted it for sale and a week or so later some guy drove 3-4hrs and gave me 75 for it.I gave 2 dollars.They are supposed to charge you by the weight to buy stuff from them.

I picked up a 12Hp Sears Suburban at the local dump. Fixed a couple of things, and mowed my lawn with it for four years. This was until the non-replaceable magneto on the Tecumseh engine died. Still have it. It is going to be the chassis for my upcoming front end loader project.

I pick up all kinds of stuff from the local Metal Recyclers, and up until this year I used to get mowers from the local dump but this year there's a new guy and he doesn't seem to save them out... another place i have found them is some townships have a free dump day and people bring them there....

ya that's an idea.. Well most of it was push mowers and rear engine riders... but I could buy them for $2.00 a piece... and most of them ran just had a wheel, or handle bar problem.. I thought about buying them up fixing them selling them for $25-$30 and give the peole an 30 day exchange only warranty... LOL

There's one guy at the local scrap yard I call the $5.00 guy. Anything you want it's yours for $5.00. Mostly anything, for some reason. Here is what I got for $5.00, Snapper rear engine rider (no engine), Galvanized fish ice chest (using to hold scrap metal), CB out of school bus, 2 park bench ends with lion heads, (weren't old, but sold to antique shop for $50.00)

The local towns around here used to have 'spring cleanup',where people could clean out basements,garages,etc,and put the stuff at the curb,for the city to pick up.I used to bring home truckloads of stuff,from appliances,to bed frames(angle iron),to lawnmowers, just about everything. Word is one town quit doing it because people were actually fighting over the junkpiles.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
