Today's haul from a jrichason

Recommended Posts

I've been keeping my eyes open for a large frame for my Dad to replace his 4211, as well as a deck for said 4211 and some new toys for me. After working out the deck with ShaunE over the weekend, my Dad was on his way back from Janesville when I saw jrichason ad. A few e-mails and we drove down to give it a new home today:

My Dad now has a 7116 with vacuum/cart/remote hose, snowblower, weights, chains, extra parts, and a complete rear end/BGB.

I have just about finished my attachment collection with a Johnny Bucket, a Dutch blade, some stinger weights, and a front weight. The Johnny Bucket gets put to work tomorrow moving stuff for a new fire ring and greenhouse!

The bucket is nice so far, but it certainly isn't a loader. For moving stuff that is already piles and filling in for a wheelbarrow, it is ideal. You can drive into a pile and take a scoop, which will make adding road gravel to my driveway SO much easier.

I noticed that the lifting arm contacts the frame unless you set the bucket to lift unreasonably low, so I need to play with that.

It is. Only thing it really needed was some compressed air under all the sheet metal and a new bearing in the deck, which came with it shaft and all. Added a fuel cutoff and I believe he's mowing with it right now.

Congrats on getting your Dad's deck issue resolved, and Your "BUCKET" acquisition, could use one myself on my 400 ft. gravel driveway. Dealing with the 46" trip blade is time consuming, and TIRING.

Cheers,

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
