26 Pineview Drive, Henrico, North Carolina 27842

Last year I heard about a nursery that was going out of business in my little part of North Carolina. So I decided to go and look. Well, he was selling everything. I walked around the outer boundary of his property and discovered that whenever he quit using any machinery he just pushed it into the woods!

While looking everything over, I found this Roto Hoe in a brush pile covered with leaves, pine straw and limbs. I pulled it out and found just about everything was there.

This is the finished product, Model #148H, Serial #2626 Roto Hoe.

After sandblasting, priming and painting, the body came out nice. The motor was in fairly good shape. It is a Lawson, Model RSH765, Serial 5123236 and it runs very good now.

It would help me very much to know what years these machines were built.
