It's sad what some people will throw out.

Yes, but what treasure for you Brian.

Definitely worth more than the asking price. :thumbs:

Around here they have "give away" weekends - where you can put out stuff that's too good for garbage. I've picked up fantastic bikes for my kids. Two of which were so good I knocked on the door to make sure they actually being given away.

good score.
it pay to keep your eyes open.
people are always throw good things away.
I was a a local county dump and somebody threw away a MF garden tractor 18 hp, it was complete.
I stopped at the office and asked about it. and they NO they can not sale anything and I can not remove anything
from there without a fine.
I cried it looked like it would not take much to fix it, maybe a motor.

I've got one in my garage almost exactly like yours. I use it all the time for small projects. Cheap is GOOD but, free is BETTER!!!

I have seen some pretty nice looking GTs at the scrapper before and asked if I could buy it at scrap price. The answer is always NO. Too bad these things are not small enough for 1 guy to load real quick when no one is looking.

Find out how much the fine is at the dump. if its only $50, I would pay that for a MF in a heart beat.
