Default Wisconsins and Lincoln, loads of engines, welders and generators

I don't know what got into me. I guess seeing old iron makes make dizzy.
Just cleared out a patio in a local subdivision. Besides many small briggs and wisconsins I unearthed a Lincoln welder with Wisconsin Twin(180DC), a Marquette Welder, a Hobart welder. 2x V4 Wisconsins with massive Generators attached to it and a V2 American Marc AC2 Diesel. The Diesel is supposedly stuck, so I may bring them straight to the scrapper since parts and support seems iffy (at least when reading previous posts). The Twin Wisconsin with the Lincoln I may get going, and if I don't electrocute myself
I'll keep you posted. Geez and I wanted to stay away from the heavy stuff

That'll keep you busy for a while!

Please list anything you onsider "dump" material before you take it. Most of this stuff is no longer available.

Thanks guys for the encouragement, but I am not setup for the big stuff.
The Lincoln welder has a Wisconsin TF attached, still turns and the magneto trips, the marquette welder has the power cable but not welding accessories, the Hobart welder has a Wisconsin AHHD, but seems stuck.
The American Marc looks fairly complete (but what do I know), has a massive generator attached to it, possible army issued, produces 6.5kw/60cyles
and also 400 cycles. Still have 2 more V4 Wisconsins. I have to sort through many boxes, but will certainly post some of the big iron soon.
But that's how it goes, I was in for the smaller engines, but the package deal required the removal of all.

There are still a lot of people in the Northeast that have been without power for over three weeks now. Too bad there is no good way to get those units to them instead of the scrapper. Sounds like a good opportunity for the Red Cross to arrange a mercy trip. Get those hulks delivered to a couple of repair shops in the affected areas to get them running out out to some folks.
