Well, I'm sitting Wall Mart parking lot in Burlington IA. That's about 2.5-3 hrs from where the HDT1000 is located and we will be picking it up later today.
OK...I'll bow to Doc's and wiberj's superior knowledge as to the 'rarity' of the Haban Flail-Mo
, and the Brinly Planter
, as those are the attachments that I picked up yesterday
While I was there the fella asked if I would be interested in a sprayer. Turns out it is the frame/front mounted one for the tube frames. I asked what he wanted for it, money changed hands, and it is now on the trailer along with the Flail-Mo.
I'll take a couple of pics of the sprayer and mower when we pick up the HDT1000
The planter is partially disassembled so we could put it in the 'basement storage' of the MH. It's in very good shape, and has almost no rust on it. It also came with a bunch of seed plates. I'll have to count them later. The only thing missing with the planter is the row marker, but that doesn't really effect usability. PO said he used it last spring to plant come corn and it did a good job
Flail-Mo has new bearings. PO said that he wanted to try it out so he refurbished it enough to do so, and he tried it out on come corn stalks and it did great. It appears to have been sanded/blasted and primed as it's a very dull red as opposed to the brighter red that you normally see on the Haban equipment.
The sprayer doesn't seem to be as complete. It does have a 'wand', but it appears to be a home brewed one and I'm thinking that all of the rubber tubing needs to be replaced, Also, if there was boom, that is missing as well. However, I guess one of those could be made easily enough. Lastly, it needs a lid for the tank.
The Flail-Mo and the sprayer should be quite useful at the Glider Port this next spring. I'm looking forward to using both of them down there.
Anyway, for a total of 525.00 for all three, I don't think I did too bad
wilber, did you get a chance to look at the Large Frame Flail-Mo that I told you about? If it hadn't been for this trip 'tapping out' my Tractor Fund, I would have jumped on that rascal like Rosie O'Donnell on a cheeseburger. Also congrats on picking up the Prototype. I had a good idea that you were the new owner since you dropped a hint in a PM.
