I finally won an auction

Recommended Posts

Seems I always lose when I bid, someone comes in at the last minute. Bid and won the rotary weed cutter, looking forward to putting this into action. The plan is to use it on my five acres especially out in the pasture, keep the Blackberry from overtaking us. Until I can afford a bigger tractor and brush hog http://cgi.ebay.com/Simplicity-Allis-Garden-Tractor-Mower-Weed-Cutter_W0QQitemZ140030678732QQihZ004QQcategoryZ82242QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item140030678732

This is the one he won, we got it with a Big Ten ... It was made by A&W manufacturing in Colfax Illinois [img]http://img.clubphoto.com/jerboa/174045535/128/null/image.jpg[/img] This one is an older picture of one I sold to my boy. Its similar, but not identical and was made by Colfax Motor company also in Colfax Illinois. Maybe One company bought out the other??? [img]http://img.clubphoto.com/jerboa/62490031/478/null/image.jpg[/img] [img]http://img.clubphoto.com/jerboa/62490035/516/null/image.jpg[/img] As you see the yellow one has a longer angle iron frame that extends back under the tractor while the red one stops at the hitch points. I added the extra idler to take up belt slack rather than buying another belt. I was going to try hooking up the yellow mower to see about getting Jeff a rough idea of measuring but The belt I have is too long to begin with and also is held out wider by the idler arrangemnt on the yellow mower. Doing it this way would only get within 6 inches of the right size maybe. What would work better? Maybe set the red one up on his tractor when he gets it and use a 1/2" piece of rope to get a close proximity of size? I know its well over 100 inches anyhow.

The guy you bought this from is a club member and an honest ebay seller. He always describes his items in great detail and is very knowledgeable about evey item he sells. Great buy from a great seller!
