I have the high bid on a 720 Allis right now. Needs lots of work, but that's the only way I can afford them to be & afford them. Always wanted one of the big beasts! Ends in 4 days and hope to get it, but hope not to have to go a whole lot higher either. Bad thing is it can only be picked up on weekday, regular work hours, so I'd have to take a day away from the cows (that would make me sad...not!) to get it. Won't matter if someone wants it more than me, or at least has more funds than I do.

Just went through my finances with a fine toothed comb....not so good. If it doesn't go much higher, I may still try for it, but I'm gonna have to pass if it climbs much. :wallbanging:

I've been outbid, so just have to wait & see. May climb past my limit before even close to the end.

It's been finaggled with a bit. For one, I'd have to build an exhaust system, and there's roller chains connected to the 3pt lift, running on top of the floorboards up to some sort of cross-shaft.
