I happened to meet a guy who's dad used to work at Case Ingersoll in Winneconne, WI. His dad has passed away sometime ago and he had a few things left in storage. He said I could have them cheap so I went to take a look.
He had a 38" snowblower, a 44" blade, and a newer hydrovac.
All in good usable shape. (I'm unfamiliar with the vac so I have questions on that. I know there are a couple things missing from it. I'll have a post on it soon.)
I asked what he wanted for the individual attachments and he said how about a package deal? I said ok, then he said $140.00 takes it all. I was like holy smokes! He helped me load it and pushed me out of the snowbank so I threw in an extra $20.00.
It's nice to get a deal but even better when I only had to drive 10 miles to get it! :thumbup:

Let me be the first one to say this.

Mjoe7....you suck....bigtime. :sidelaugh: :sidelaugh: :sidelaugh:


You can sell the blade for more than what you paid for the lot.

Did you get a Hydra Vac or a Hydra-bagger?

If the former, did you get all of the stuff to convert the garden cart?

How about the deck boot and suction hose?

Did he have the mounting bracket or was this a 3 pt hitch model?

Mjoe7, you are now the most hated member of the week here.



Good find though. Deals like that will continue to pop up here and there and its nice to know that they will go to people who will appreciate them. More oftern then not, a lot of these things end up at the scrap yard.

I posted pics now. It's a bagger. It has the bags, and hose, but the deck boot is gone and possibly the mounting brackets. I asked about everything to make sure he did'nt have anything else laying around. He sold the tractors awhile back, to bad for me. :crazy: lol.

Most likely, the mounting bracket went out the door still bolted to one of the tractors and the boot was on the N-deck. I've seen that silly mistake made several times in the past.

None of those parts are cheap to buy. I have seen just the bracket show up on e-Bay as a result of one of those deals.

It appears you have an H blade. They have a nice strong Mule bracket and you don't need the adapter plate for the bellcrank. The blower looks to be an K or L model and it's complete.

You should be able to easily recover what you laid out plus make some good money just be selling the blade and the blower. If you get lucky on e-Bay, you might find a cheap bracket. The boot is something I'd advise you to make because the OEM one is a little on the light side, material wise.

Great find Mjoe Glad you an into that one! :thumbsup: The bracket for the hydravac does not look that hard to fabricate if you have the right tools. I can get some photos of mine if you want.
That would be great. Whenever you get the time. :thumbsup:
I will also need some pics of the chute where it comes out of the deck. If you could please. :thumbup:
Thank you.

When you go out to the garage this morning you'll realize you don't need any brackets--I helped the tractor police recover all the stolen items while you were sleeping. :sidelaugh: :sidelaugh: :sidelaugh: :sidelaugh:

I can get you some measurements tomorrow once the truck is out of the garage, but you should be able to figure it out from the hydrabagger you have. The chute on the mower deck is really best if you can find a case/ingersoll one. I have seen some guys fabricae them but don't think they work as well.

Here is a hydrabagger set up on my 446
