Well i have heard about this fella for years now. He supposedly had 3 different abandond farms full inside and out of garden tractors. Well today i saw for myself,and i must say, i have never seen one guy with so many tractors. I would say 90% of them are deere,cub,and wheelhorse. And i would also sadly say 75% of them ran when they were parked. The barns are packed full at each place, but the majority of this stuff is rotting away outdoors,very sad. We are talking about 1500+ tractors here. This guy definately has a love for the hobby, as he could care less if he sells anything. In fact i am not trying to be mean,but i would classify this guy as a "hoarder". If anyone is ever near whitley county indiana, p.m. me, seeing is believing.

What if that hot chick from American Pickers calls him? He might allow a camera crew then.

Pretty extreme. I think hoarding is the correct term. It makes no sense at all to me to have 1500 tractors most of which are rotting outside. It makes me sad in fact!

Yes "hoarding" may be the correct term. Makes me sad that he would not be willing to share. Wish I had a retirement fund like that. I would bet I would be able to meet and shake a lot more of your guys hands. That would be a treat in it self.
