You have got to be kidding! Man, you can't buy the hydraulic hoses & cylinders for that little, much less the loader/frame/tractor!!!!!!!!
That is just about the best buy I've ever heard of!

You could sell the blade for $300 when the first snow flies. The tractor and loader were free.

I am thrilled with it, I can't wait to get it up and going.
This isn't the "deal of the year" because a few months ago i found this Ford LGT-145h with a Brantly Loader and Backhoe for only $350 + 25 for a extra backhoe bucket.
I got it home cleaned the points and it started right up, i converted it over to Hydraulic steering, and i had to do a little work on the hydraulic pump.
Here are a couple of pictures of it
I also built a set of pallet forks and a blade for the backhoe.
(I guess i had 2 "deal of a year")
The last two pictures are when i first brought it home before i got it was running.

I like the blade set up on the backhoe, that looks so handy. Awesome scores for sure.

Wow! You are close to my old stomping grounds, BTS! We lived at Furley up until my Soph. year. I went to Remington H.S. my Soph. year, then we moved to OK.

Dang! Small world! My Freshman year was at Whitewater. Your dad would have been 6-7 years behind me. Remington was brand new the year I went. I haven't been out there in years. I have a son in Wichita!

Kenny, you need to get out & beat the bushes for these deals out that way! I started to do a poll on the Deere w/FEL about "Best Deal Ever", but never got round to it. This Ford with the backhoe definitely must be the best candidate for a winner of such a poll!

I think you are right, Daniel. That Ford would be nice to have.
As far as beating the bushes, I gotta have the $ to buy. He's (BTS) in a great location to find these sweet deals.

It don't matter if you find that nothing else on the tractor works. Its worth $300 all day long for just what you see.

That's true, Dean! I just find it hard to believe he found that Ford w/ backhoe & loader for $350. That is a steal for sure!
