A more accurate description might be "Ran into a tree about 10 years ago".

It's a shame to see machines just rotting like that.

I see the upside as at some point the 'holder' has mercy and presents them for view/sale.

Does it have a push plow mount on the front? The hole can be brazed up and not be noticeable.
