OT. Because I could: Allen scythe snow plough

Recommended Posts

Way off topic and posted entirely for topical amusement. Hope it's not too far left field. 

I give you... The Oxford Allen snow plough!

I believe they sold one for it, or somebody used to make one. Either way, it makes short work of keeping the drive passable for 2wd euroboxes. Fabricobbling something up for the 109 seemed like overkill. 

Stay safe!

Grief! I haven't laid eyes on one for 20 years, I seem to remember that the magneto hates inactivity, whenever I went to mine after a few years idleness it was always a case of stripping that first. Good re-purpose though , .... wish I'd thought of it when I had mine.

Cheers :) I love these old machines, I have a 4 stroke too. I found this one didn't want to go having been sat since the summer, but just wanted the corrosion cleared off the points and away she went. I think they suffer from the points only closing during a very small part of crank rotation, so chances are they'll always stop open and furr up. I have a feeling dirty points (and decaying coils) are the cause of many words of rage over the years!

Was a fun little project.
