  1. Langley models from the uk. They made them in I believe 1/43 and 1/76. Theres a nice btd6 drott skid shovel too. A google search for langley models should pull up their website. I have 2 of the mercury drott skid shovels along with a few of the first gear 1/25 models. I have the td25 with cab. Both versions of the 175c loader and the 560 payloader.
  2. Found a nice 2505 tractor with loader and 3pt hitch !
  3. well....adding another toy to the collection so these have to go. 3514 backhoe. Diesel. Was told engine was rebuilt. Backhoe swing mechanism looks to be in nice shape. Machine is apart but lots of good parts. Hough hf payloader. Engine cranks. Valve cover removed. Manifold rotted. Figured I'd offer them up here. Located in rhode island.
  4. Undercarriage look well shot to me....the riveted pads tell me it could be original. Also. Parts, especially for the u.c. are impossible to find. I used mine quite a bit when I had it. But never worked it hard. I do know it struggled with stumps bigger than 10 inches or so. I also have very rocky ground here. But for making trails through brush and grading off the yard it did work well. Wish I never sold it. The brakes are located behind the finals. So they have to come off. Theres lots of ways to adjust everything. I'd buy a manual if you do grab it. I'd also offer him scrap price for it.
  5. Here in rhode island we dont jave any poisonous snake. I do have nice at the house and I hate cats. While at work if I come across any black racers or milk snakes I will catch them and release them in my yard. Havent noticed a dent in the mice population but then again...I hate cats.
  6. We have 2 Norwegian Elkhounds snd a mini schnauzer. The elkhounds wre amazing dogs. Very smart ,ancient breed. Couldnt ask for better companions. But, they shed worse than a husky !
  7. I guess scrap is so low now it would cost more to pay someone to load the machine up and haul it to the scrap yard than what they would have gotten for it. Cat 938 picked the entire tractor up with no problem....I'd guess 6 tons at the most.
  8. The machine differs from mine. This has a 4 speed transmission with the forward/reverse pedals. Mine was hydrostatic with high and low. The engine doesnt appear to be a d239. Rosa master pump om right side. Also has 3141 backhoe. Mine had a 3121. Anyone is looking for backhoe parts let me know as I dont plan on using that unless I locate the missing bracket.
  9. Tried buying this very machine years back when I was restoring the one I had...owner wouldn't budge. Fast forward 5 years later and I'm sent to a nursery to demo the structures and clean up the lot. Backhoe is still sitting in the same place. Talked to the grandson of the former owner and was told motor was rebuilt,tranny was rebuilt, rear axle broke and machine was dismantled for repair then they have up and just bought another machine. Missing u bolts and one bracket for the hoe... swing shaft and top plate are in very nice shape. So its loaded and at home. Going to see if the motor runs.
  10. Tell me your not parting out the one I sold you !!! That little machine made equipment echoes magazine...the DVD and it made The international hough dresser book that came out last year !
  11. I was thinking of cutting the exhaust portions off and making flanges and pipework to make a separate manifold. As the intake and exhaust are cast as one piece I would have to get pretty creative. I located a manifold for 300...which is more than I paid for the machine but it may be worth picking it up. I removed the head and cylinder walls look very good.
  12. Well....the exhaust manifold is rotted to **** on the bottom. Dont think I can find one either. Anyone know if any other herc manifolds will bolt to this engine ? Carb is in the middle as is exhaust outlet but I'm sure I could make it work if the exhaust was on front or back. Guy down the street has a Detroit 353 for sale....prolly more work to fab in another engine than worth.
  13. There were 2 filter types...one I recall was a single large oval with a mesh screen that could be cleaned and reused. The other had two round filters that had to be replaced. Wix filters makes both. I think they were around 20 bucks.my t340 would required cleaning of the filters quite often.
  14. Has a hercules engine. No ticking or knocking but at idle it gradually revs higher on it's own. Has a gas pedal and hand throttle. Gas fill cap is just to the left of steering wheel. It came with a set of chains for the rear tires too ! Not a bad project. I had an h25b years ago and struggled with traction on that too
  15. Picked this little hough hf for what I felt was a fair price. Former town machine. Heat even works ! It has a 6 volt system but the guy jumped the solenoid with a 12 volt battery. Melted some wires and started a small fire.which didnt concern me much untill I realized he spilled gas all over the cab floor while filling the tank. At 6 feet tall and 250 pounds I wasnt getting out of the cab very fast so we decided to just winch it on the truck instead of trying to drive it on. Has all the old work lights and even a licence plate from 1950 still on it. Not sure when I'll get around to it but a
