Recommended Posts

I almost bid on it..I watched it to the end but had a hard time not bidding..I really dont need another one and I dont have the room..I plan to sell off most if not all my small frame Broadmoors..I have so much good junk in the garage I can't even get in to work on anything LOL..I have even been thinking about selling my 64 Landlord with winter cab..Most of these tractors I don't hardly use anymore and they just take up work space..

I bought one of those on E-bay last year cost me 115.00 with shipping. If he would have been willing to ship it he woulds have made a lot more on it, couse I would have bid on also. And I also hope a club member got it.

They vertically cut the sod on your lawn so that you can effectively overseed what's already there... First, you mow it real low... Then you run one of these... Then you sow the new grass seed... Then you water and keep it moist for a couple of weeks... Ouila! A new lawn.... Here's Simplicity's description: http://www.simpletractors.com/simplicity/new_in_1972/revitalizer.htm

After talking to guys at tractor shows.It is easy to predict the smaller stuff becoming more popular down the line. Most guys don't have the money, time and or space to invest in the big stuff.So the garden tractor has overrun the Hit N Miss/Antique Farm tractor swap meets. Guys want something that will fit in their garage with room to work on it and still have space for the mini-van so the other half won't bitch.When he is done with the project he wants to be able to take it to shows & ride around on it.So smaller is better for show.Plus,being cheaper on the wallet the small stuff allows for expansion.;) Myself,I'm looking for a joystick WonderBoy to clean up and cruise the shows.:D

Thanks Kent. I see its a more improved aerator. Never too old to learn new names. Mack -I too am after a joystick WB. Just missed one not far from here a few weeks back because I didn't bid high enough plus it didn't have the deck. I just picked up a Homelite T8 with a blower, 2nd deck, chains, and a tiller for $128 on ebay the other night. Being a small frame fan I thought it was a "steal"

Joe, Their generic name is usually "vertical mower" and I don't know of anyone else who calls them a revitalizer -- they're much more than just an aerator. Some people incorrectly think of them as "power rakes" -- but power rakes have spring tines, not cutting blades, so they're also more than just a power rake... Here's a good description of different tools (including these vertical mowers) and how they're used to renovate a lawn... http://seedsuperstore.com/ask_the_expert/overseeding_instructions.asp And here's a description of how they're used to remove thatch buildup: http://doityourself.com/lawn/thatch.htm

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
