Was listed on exxy and was local so I placed a fair bid.
I lost. A week or so later I got a 2ed chance offer, as the winner had to turn it down. I was going out of town so had to decide in just a few hours to take it or not (the offer expired before I would get back to town).

I took it.

Forcanately the owner had a forktruck and could lift it onto my truck, as this thing is about 380 lbs (per the literature on site) It is very top heavy so i used a lot of straps and rope to hold it in place. (And drove easy) but got it home with out problem.

It has nicely shaped casings in the style popular back then.
The upper casing has a weld repair at the hinge, the tilt mech is missing and the tilt angle indicator is missing.
The upper guard casting is broken.
