Sorry to dissapoint, but I didn't end up bringing home any GT's, just a couple old lawn tractors. One JD 116, and one old Sears. He had an old Case that I really wanted, but he wasn't quite ready to part with it. I have to go back soon, because he did give me an old Ditch Witch, with a Wisconsin V4. It still looked really solid, and he said it ran great when parked, but it had a broken sprocket. He said he'd think more about the Case, and maybe when I come back I can take it. He also gave me an old tiller, with a Briggs 5hp on it. I was loaded way to heavy coming home with a Chevy 1500. It had enough power, but the suspension was not really up to the task, and I was gald I had really good trailer brakes! :D I still had a great time visiting with my friend, and really enjoyed looking at all his old full size tractors. :worshippy1: Oh, I almost forgot, he gave me an old Johnson Iron Horse engine, and an old Briggs 5s as well. The JD is buried under all those bicycles in the picture of me loaded. :thumbs:

Oklahoma! Thats all your getting out of me Brian! :bigrofl:
Don't get me thinking that way Nate! You'll have me coming home looking like the Beverly Hillbillies, and it might be a little hard on the paint job having GT's stacked on top of it! :bigrofl:

Matt

You need to see about loading that van sideways, like I do my Masseys. That van is less than eight feet long, right????

That van is alot more than 8ft long. Thats an 18ft trailer, and it used all, but about 2ft of it.

Matt, I hadn't made it to the end of the thread when I posted that, then I realized you had already returned and were showing pictures. Great haul, though :thumbs:

Matt, Glad you got home safely with your load, sorry you didn't score any GT's, but the Lt's will keep you busy for a little while.

Not a bad haul, but one question though. You have that Ditch Witch shoved in the grove box of the truck? Don't see it in any of the trailer pics. To bad no GTs, but now you can start that lawn and garden care business with your almost new equipment! :D

Nate you like looking at the pics don't you. :bigrofl: You'll notice in my post, I said I have to go back for the Ditch Witch. I'm hoping to be able to talk him out of the Case GT when I return. :D

My thoughts exactly Kenny. As soon as I saw a pic of that little Craftsmen, I thought it was a baby FF
