Dummy will try again with a smaller bid. Ive seen it too many times. lol
Pathetic. If the owner loves it soooo much he thinks its worth A1 collectible price he should keep it. Aint that insulting? Theres always someone who let a machine rot away and then all of a sudden, wants big money for it. if you didnt care enough to keep it clean why should I think its a peach? Ive been buying older machines for a while and those are known around here as rats. Trying to cash out on others that care for history and decent craftsmanship. I know this one aint rotten but its the same kind o bastard.


Sorry mates, but it makes me angry.

..this reminds me of one of those horror-crash scene videos that gets alot of replay, Annnyway I was thinkin' ackbasswardsly that perhaps our clever friend might have opened somewhere betwixt 350-500 with one o' them '*reserve thingies' and allow the feedin' frenzy to ensue from there, rather than having folks approaching the ad like soiled smoldering diaperage...I think weird stuff :blink:


*(don't care much for reserve thingies either)

He will be lucky to get $250 for the tractor, I think the missing decals and wrong color paint used is turning people away

In my humble opinion Doc, the sleazy bid rigging & inflated pricing were more of a turn off than color & detailing. for a reasonable price, I think the average buyer can overlook those things, going in. ( for me it's: intactness, functionability and $)

In his first attempt, he had a Hydro lift with it. He's stripped that out of the current listing.

Looking at the bids for this and a couple of other things he's selling...I can see that he has his "old Buddy" u***i making bogus bids for him

Well, I just asked a question.

Considering the previous two or more times you've had this item listed, it seems a little suspicious that each time the same bidders are involved and they are also helping your bid on other items. Not accusing you of anything, Just pointing out that if it steams, smells bad and comes from a bull, well, you get the idea.


I wonder if he'll respond?
