My fiance wants her own tractor, Awesome in my book. She has decided on a Simplicity or AC. I picked up B10 because the price was right but it has alot of missing parts. I found the 725 in the ad above she really likes that one but im not coming close to 400 for it. Whats everyone elses opinion on an offer to make?

Make sure you get the one She wants. I think it is great that She also likes GT's. What a great way to spend some time together.

Give her what she wants, you'll both be happier! A nicely fixed up A/C B10 or Big Ten with the original type seat is very good looking( I have 3). Fix what you have if its reasonable or shop for another tractor. If you have the 23D engine some parts may be harder to find.

Lowest he will go is 300 but thats the one she likes its a little rich for my blood but she has always supported every tractor purchase i have made and even bought my recent purchase of the cub cadet 70 behind my back.

Im going to keep the b10 for myself and put it together as i find parts. haha win win we both get new tractors

I think its a little high. Does she have to have it now or can she wait? If she can wait I would ask her to do so. I think you can get a tractor in better shape for that kinda of money. That one looks like its gonna take a lot to get it fixed up, are you sure she understands that its not a "5 minute job"? You dont want her to bite off more than she can chew at this point.
