Hi guys, I found this for sale. The owner and I are playing phone tag atm, I don't know much about it. All it had was these 2 pictures and that name. Would you think it was worth checking into? It is hard to tell from picture but it seems like it is all there, and sheet metal looks good. garden master.jpg garden master 2.jpg Thanks Chris

I would buy it because it is a rare machine, but 800 is still high, but hard to find hmmm. You have a decision to make lol.

Still playing phone tag lol. She didn't do much of a description on it. Looks like a plow on the front also. I am just surprised this is still out there, I see she only listed it one time back a month ago.Maybe she will consider 600 for the Obo :smilewink:

Sheet metal and paint all looks good but more pic's are reqired to ascertain the condition properly, i hope you can get it for a good price, phone tag suxs.
Hopfully it comes with more stuff attached as they are even harder to find, that's a neat GT.

I like Brian's suggestion of taking cash in hand and go look at it. It is definitely worth picking up as it is rare. Money talks bs walks :D

Ok guys I just got off the phone with her. She lives in CT and the tractor is at her dad's in MA. It was her dad's tractor and he used to used it to plow snow. He is in his eighties now and hasn't used it in many years, It ran when it was parked but no one has tried to start it since.She doesn't believe there are any other implements besides the plow. We set it up for next weekend, she'll drive up from CT and meet me there. Now I just have to find a less expensive way to get it home. The Uhauls with the gas prices cost me almost 400 last time. and they won't rent a trailer to me because I have an all wheel drive explorer. I'll figure something out! And yes I will post plenty of good pictures if all goes as planned :smilewink:

I agree with Brian, I've saved a bunch by taking cash and making an offer with the money in my hand. Can't see why all wheel drive would limit renting a trailer. That'll be a nice old tractor to add to he heard. Good luck.
