Back from auction

Post by amos » Sat Apr 21, 2018 6:45 am

10' mowers I had my eye one were pretty well used up and sold high.Did get a Bush Hog 8' with tow set up and hydraulic deck lift/height adjustment for $3000.00.Center gear box is 140HP and outboard boxes are 90HP. 2012 model and when I got it to farm I hooked it up and started mowing.No rust on deck,paint still there and underside looks just as good. 1 minor crack at base of hydraulic cylinder mount. With tow set-up and hyd deck lift about $7000.00 new.Pretty happy.
Also picked up what has got to be the heaviest 4 way and reversable 3pt 6' blade I've ever seen. Cutting edge(bolt on) is 1/2" thick x 5" tall and still on first good edge. Blade is 3/8" thick x 24" tall and has 6 vertical weldments plus 2 longitudinal supports 1/2" thick on the back side to brace it.Adjustment plates are 5/8" thick and slotted for a 5/8" thick key to hold adjustment.Probably a solid 600 pounds. $325.00 for that. Plan is to use it to pull gravel back from lane edges at farm(1/4 mile long).
If anyone has an idea of company that made the blade please let me know.

Blade: looks to be early model King Kutter brand: 1980's maybe?. Found a very similar design on a farm equipment site. $1295.00 + freight new. Looks like I got a deal and now wife wants it painted.....
This whole interweb thing is handy every now and again :D
