No pics, camera died and won't download.
A week or so ago I got a Roper 16 horse twin hydro (ugliest mower I ever saw) and a 11 horse gray craftsman for $200. The Roper basically needs a battery and I guess the craftsman got moisture in the 4 speed transaxle and won't shift. Then I went to the landfill and found another craftsman, almost identical but 12 horse with a 5 speed. It and several other items set me back $19.92 The 12 horse popped right off and runs smooth, pulled that for another project and the 5 speed will go in the other craftsman.

The best thing is my new (to me) trailer. It is a 1995 factory made 18 foot with 7000# axles and brakes on both, 10 ply tires, led lights and the big center jack. A $40 case 220 turns into $850, which buys a JD 212 for $750 that I sell for $1700, so the trailer I paid $1800 for actually cost me $40, plus a couple hundred spent going through 2 tractors.
