thanks sam, well, that would possibly be worthwhile. I was going to go that way tomorrow anyway so if it is there i'll grab it. If those tires aren't dryrotted i can use the wheels at least. Looks like it has a lot of doodads. I have no idea if attachments are included. Or even the hood.

Wisconsin is an engine manufactuer just as Briggs or Kohler was. They had a full line of engine but made their mark in industrial applications all the way up to V-4 cyl. engines on air comp. They are/were comonly used in older Ditch Witch trenchers. I have a 22 HP inline twin in my D-W.

just back from checking it out. I passed on it. had a little kohler motor(i think) that had been outside and exposed for some time with no plug. Steering stuck. Not worth dragging home for 2 good wheels/tires. You never can tell what you find based on a picture. I am not surprised that this was junk. Body looked good if someone is into bolens and in the Plymouth Ma area it could be a good repower candidate. body looked solid.

Well, the last toy I 'picked up', was the Landlord I am working on now. Steering was locked, rear tires there in name only, no belts, the owner said the engine was locked up, and that the tractor wouldn't move when he parked it, some kind of transmission trouble. A few days of looking at it from all sides, scratching the head a bit, and a few bucks later, I have a brand new to me 65 Landlord! Steering locked up was all that was really wrong with it. Oh, that, and a piston in an overbored cylinder that is making me pull my hair out right now! If I went back around that route again, I believe I'd pick it up!

      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!😁
