    Over the years ive started to collect quite a bit of old heads, clocks ETC for display at my shop & office.

    Ive also been collecting old irrigation product catalogs that i come across on ebay and such. Ive got TORO, Rainbird, Irritrol etc, product catalogs going back to the early 70's

    Does anyone have anything like this they would like to part with, i'll pay of course. PM me if interested.

    Im lacking alot of product catalogs for the 80's....

    You'll have to pry my Safe-T-Lawn catalogs from my cold dead hands. :)
    I remember seeing a Thompson catalog from before WWII on ebay. I think it fetched at least fifty bucks.

    I regret cutting up my catalogs to put only the pages I needed into a binder. :(
     
  7. Do you have the ABCs of Lawn Sprinklers? It's a classic.
