Just a thought, you might want to wait till all the travel restrictions are over before eliminating it. I've seen folks drive pretty far for attachments like these if they want them bad enough.

PA318Guy, Your right, I will move this stuff into a back corner of the yard and wait. One of my hobbies is vintage cars and I know how important a small useless part means to another. This is my 1919 Ford Model T touring car.

Too bad you aren't closer, I've been known to cross a state line or two for JD things!

Yes there is a place for sale/wanted on this forum. I'm sure someone could use it and I wouldn't trash it. If you can't sell it put it on for free and tell them they must load. If nothing else it would make a good weight for plowing or blowing snow. Where are you located? I would take it but I don't have a rear PTO.

Very nice work on the the touring and the pickup. I'm pretty familiar with Melbourne, my son went to FIT there. That was years ago though!

Get some pics of it, make sure you have all the parts, you be amazed how much is left on the tractor when things are sold off. It does not make for a quality sale! Yes, the For Sale area is located under the shopping mall conversation

I bought a 40 loader from a guy who had this leaf vac system on his 420. It was rear PTO run and hydraulically dumped when full. It was very hard to put it on and weighed so much that a lot of extra weights had to be added to the front even when empty. It is neat that it is dumpable from the seat and if I remember correctly goes quite high up for the dump. It cries out for a dedicated dolly to mount it on for installation and removal. The newer version used a separate gas engine to run the blower instead of the rear PTO. I think you would be hard-pressed to get $500 for it unless you throw in the rear PTO since they sell in the $500-$700 range.

The one my friend had was manual dump not hydraulic I think you had to get off the tractor pull the lever and close it.

Rudy this is the setup for the MCS, does have the electric clutch but not the rear pto gears for other driven attachments so is part of the MCS not a separate piece.
