    Sears Bankruptcy

    Yep, if someone had a crystal ball and could have seen how future consumers would be shopping Sears could have been what Amazon is today. I agree that the quality of Sears branded products went down, craftsman tools especially.

    Kinda looks like a fun chore! Gotta love seat time

    checking on a friend

    I’ve been paying a tree service to drop a few trees close to my house the last couple springs. Trying to keep my house out of the “danger zone” in case we get hit with a mega storm.

    Commando 8 VS Commando V8

    The "V" signifies a vertical shaft engine, which is not what you have. Looks like a Commando 800 or a 1973 8/4speed.

    My Toro

    What are your plans for the diesel? Got a project in mind?

    Did it again lol

    Was the hood cut? If that’s just a rust or rot hole I would try to keep it. Something cool about it to me.
  8. It was generator maintenance day here for me. I love my gen but the oil change is a pain. The drain plug is way to low for any of my oil catch pans so up on blocks it goes “redneck style”!

    Front End Friday

    Loaded up for the Zagray Machinery Show.
  10. Are they the 7473 belts? I think a TORO dealer gets around $45 for a brand new belt. I won a brand new old stock 7473 at this years WH Show, installed it on a C-165/8 speed and it was a real grabby belt ( in a bad way) which I attributed to being curled up in a package for so long.

    Frustrated trip

    I love a good road trip, but maybe a call to the place first could have saved you from the disappointment.

    Need New Tires

    I’m a huge fan of the Carlisle All-Trails. Mine are 23/10.5/12 and I think the next size down is 23/8/12...only a 1/2” less width than your original Bronco rear tires. These are mounted on my dedicated snow plow machine but would probably be great for mowing small slopes.
