Mighty Mac Leaf Vacuum, Chipper and Bagger, model VCB258

I came across an older Mighty Mac Leaf Vacuum, Chipper and Bagger, model VCB258. Its powered by an older, and discontinued, Tecumseh engine, and was manufactured from 2000 to 2006. The Tecumseh engine is a model HM80 155509N and is a 8HP, cast iron sleeve, horizontal crankshaft, single cylinder engine with mechanical compression release and electronic CDI ignition. This model Mighty Mac is equipped with a 3 speed transmission with 3 forward speeds, neutral and reverse, and a chain final drive. This unit is missing the right rear tire and rim, and the throttle cable is frozen solid. I haven’t had a chance to start it yet, but I believe it went into storage with no fuel in the gas tank and carburetor, which will make it easier to start. This model Mighty Mac was manufactured in USA by Mackissic Inc, and had a MSRP between $1399 and $1539 from 2000 to 2006.
