It's nice to hear someone getting a good deal like that. You bought them fair and square no need to feel guilty at all. I picked up an old Ariens 20" 4hp tiller the other day for 20$. They don't get much interest in the summer. That Cub is a really nice score! :thumbs:

I would say you got a couple of really good deals...You are lucky to have GT auctions during the week and not on a Saturday when everyone like us guys on the forum would be there!

I really hate to go to an auction....Usually interested in only 1 thing, they wait to sell it the last thing of the day, and it starts out twice what I feel I want to pay!

I'd say you just about wrapped up the "Deal of the Week"

Congrats on a couple of smoking deals!

Actually, I think you overpaid on the snowblower, I feel so bad, I might just have to come on down and give you your money back... Less gas of course... :rofl2:

Got the cub going. All it was, a little dirt in the carb, and dirty points.

So that means it will be going with me to the Hanley Falls, Minesota Show this weekend. There are featuring IH tractors and all Cub Cadets.

Tell you what. If it bothers you that you paid so little bring them down and leave them in my shed. I will hide them from you.

Well, if you didn't tip the auctioneer, I think you otta get on that stolen tractor, and
scoot on back there, and tip him. At least, you may stop feeling so guilty. :p

Nice score.

I'm with Will, you owe that auctioneer BIG TIME!!
Great deals :thumbs: glad to see getting the tractor running was no big deal. Hope for the same success with the blower.

If I were you Tim I would buy that auctioneer a 12 pack or a good meal whichever he prefers. Then I would make sure I was at his next auction. He's obviously looking after you. Fantastic deals.
