Looks like a clatter trap green mulch maker to me. Be sure to put a hitch on it in case we need to be towed in, too.

Damn cat should be driving it.

It's an old Monkey Wards mower.. It's ready to tow that corn binder but would'nt touch goddammitts boat with a 20 foot log chain..

First the mower deck lever has to become the cluch.. Me old hip can't push the spring loaded one..

The Damn Contraption a.k.a. The Unjon Dear will be coming to the Greater Metroplis a.k.a. Black Rock City from the Smallville Farms a.k.a Salem Or.

It will be assisting with the harvesting of product for The Soylet Green Biscuit Co. All the while playinng loud music from the days of yor a.k.a. 1950's

Lic. under Alterabeled to transport fellow campmates Unjon and J.T. With small added seating for one other..

Some other tools needed are a fish knocker and manure fork.. The fish knocker is use for limp product a.k.a Dr. Poyro after a night of hard partying.. They sometime complain of no ready to go yet.. The manure fork will be use to sort out spoiled and rotten stuff a.k.a. Capt. Goddammitt

There should be an abundant sorce of product from fall out as the Black Cats Contraption a.k.a rusty old corn.. Or those being shot down by Elliots piano cart..

Oh, hell... Watch the MOOP factor. You know if you poke him with those tines after he's been sitting in the hot sun, he'll just burst open.

I'm always fond of old junk. Though I have no direct use for it and would gladly defer to someone who might.

I took as as he was wondering about the rpm of the 11 hp b&s engine and the rest was just following up on what the engine was to be driving.

Probably need a hand held tach. I think Harbor Freight has them pretty inexpensively these days.

Here's one right here, but still pricey if you're only using it once.

I will have to abanden that part of the project this year.. Did leave the cast step pullies on for the agra-punk affect.. Can get enough juice to get along from the magneto.. Maybe a little back up from a gennie in camp..

OH yeah!! Went to see Elilot race last weekend.. Something else got my attention so don't know how he faired..

Used those working harvest on the hot/repair truck.. Changed up pullies on the combines if it was damp or to dry.. Potatoe diggers are fussy to.. Damn I hated feild repair.. Coat of grease, coat of dirt, coat of grease and so on..
