Sure is bad getting so old and forgetful...I'd almost forgotton this '47 "Avery A" waaaaay back in the lean-to in a dark corner. First daylight this fellow has seen in years.

Investigating some damage caused by ***** turning over boxes and buckets caused me to make it all the way back to where this thing has been sitting. So, I figured it's about time to pull it out for some fresh air !!!

The little Hercules is a little weak and it burns a bit of oil, but it does have hydraulics and they work just fine. It's been converted to 12v and there is some sheet metal parts missing around the electrics, but I don't know what just yet. Reminds me... there is a fellow 15 miles north that offered me a good running Avery A with no front pedestal for $400.00. I should go get that one,shouldn't I ??

A little TLC and it'll be ready for the wrecking crew again.

Thats a awful sweet looking little A. Think I'd have a lot of trouble forgetting that one but then again you did say almost. Wonder how rare that single front is, you don't see many like that around here.

Yes, ma'am it will get some tlc sooner or later...It looks a bit better in the picture than in person though. The dust is masking its actual condition :lol: :lol:

I don't know if these are common or rare. I've not seen any other one around here except the one with no front pedestal. I stumbled onto this one by accident when looking at an Allis one day about 16 years ago. By the way Gordon, digging my way back into the lean-to I barked my shin on an old JohnDeere LA....now WHERE did that come from ???!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

They talk to you all the time you are running it. That is how I kept up with Henry on the farm,

It's just soooo little, and was hiding so far below the others and it was easy to just look right over the top of it MissBetty. :shock: :shock: :? :? I wonder what else MrsMassey snuck in and hid in the corners and didn't tell me about.... ;) ;) ;)
