Local Find...York Rake model RM

Checked another attachment off the list...been a good year, and it keeps getting better ^ This one will get a refresh in AC yellow, I think, and probably some new hardware, bot overall, it's in nice shape, with some of the original color showing through. It could use one tine, and I'll re-bush the wheels. Rubber is real nice, and the ID tag is in good shape too.

I did search around ST and the web, and really cannot find much more on this than the breif mentions of it as one of the 'approved' attachments in the Simple trACtors literature. Seems to me, I heard mention of one down in Ohio...somewhere in Jonnysac's neck of the woods. I'd love any info anyone might have.

The most suprising thing to me about the unit is it's weight...this thing is HEAVY. The literature says 136# without the optional blade. There is some serious steel in this. Being so bulky, it's definitely a 2-man (or 1 FEL) job to lift into the truck. ;)

I sure would love to have the grader for it as well...I'll have my eyes open for that. Not sure when the resto on this would begin. Has to wait until the other 3 projects I have going are wrapped 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!😁
