Attended an auction this weekend. Property and possessions being auctioned off. Friend of the family told me, "he's retiring from retirement; selling everything, buying a boat and moving to the lake."
There was an 8N listed in the sale bill with some 3-point equipment, but I was mainly wanting to see some of the building materials listed. When I arrived, as with many auctions I attend, there was way more being sold than listed. It didn't take long to spot a Cub-22 (4-1/2') mower. The unit was rusted, but workable. The sheet metal guard housing was a little bent up, as well as the stay rod. Think it's missing the drag bar. But the good news: it had the drive pulley
wired on it, which often is absent. The splines were in great shape. The pitman arm was rotted/broken, but the metal end plates were intact and the grass board was missing.
Later on while walking around, I spied a Cub belt pulley
. It freely spun and was in good working shape including the splines.
Knew I wanted the belt pulley
for sure, so bid on it. I waited around 'til they sold the mower, just to see how much it sold for.
Here's some pictures:
Conclusion: Won the belt pulley
($10) and the sickle bar mower ($20). Think they'll both clean up well.
