Bought this at an auction

I had to put my enclosed combo trailer build on hold got a new project.. I picked this up at a town auction, it's got a 4cyl Wisconsin, I think it's a 12 inch intake and it's got the intake on the bottom. It was made for the golfcourse, but I figured I could throw an axle underneath it and put a hitch on the front and give it a whirl on some clean ups? I only paid $150.00 for it, even if it doesn't work I can get that much for scrap for it lol

I would just grab the scrap money....that thing looks like a money pit. I have done that type of thing a million times. Most of the time it ends up costing me a lot more than I anticitpated

Nice snag man! It looks a little lopsided lol. How's the power? A couple cans of rustoleum, then Toss that axle on and run it till it falls to peices...

Mount it on that yellow chevy in the background, that way you can have the vaccum and take a trailer.
