 I picked up a free Tanaka gas-powered drill last week. Pulls over and has good compression but wouldn't fire - found the coil wire is cracked and shorting out. It will be a nice drill when I put a new wire or coil on it. 

 

 I answered an ad for free coal. Turns out it was a LOT of coal. It was about 40 TONS of coal. It was located in the basement of a huge church in Dorchester, MA -

 

 

Nice score, last I knew coal was over 275 a ton, and that drill is about 450 new!

3 plus cords of Cherry firewood that I picked up today. The homeowner even helped my buddy and I load it.

Lucky it was somewhat close, it's surely the heaviest load my 14,000 lb trailer has ever carried. My one ton van wasn't liking pulling it at all.

Not only was the trailer overloaded, the back of the van was too, I wanted to get it all in one trip. Never again.

Nice haul! That should keep you busy for a while, splitting and stacking.

craigslist has changed in the last few years around here. It wasnt too long ago a guy could snag 2 or 3 free throw away mowers a month and clean the carb, new battery, slime the tires then flip it and make $250. Now we get 300 mower posts a day even in the off season, With nothing under $300. No more free bees and your add gets lost within a few hours. I posted an ad to pick up mowers and ended up driving 30 min 1 way to get ragged out MTDs with half of the parts missing. I hate to ask for pics on a free mower, but $20 gas to pick up $3 worth of scrap doesnt make much sense

Gerald Jealous ?? Lol !! I'm thinking so !! He says so every time I post about a good hardwood firewood score.

I took it real slow, and it's all flat land around here. The van does have a tow package so that helps.

I figured out the weight roughly based on info I found about firewood.

Wet Cherry weighs about 4,700 lbs per cord X's 3.2 cords based on the trailer dimensions. 15,000 lbs plus.

It was packed real well too, not much air space.

Got the Ford LGT165 with Loader and backhoe for $375 with extra backhoe buckets.

Got the John Deere 140 H3 with Kwick-Way loader and hydraulic push blade for $300 (engine was stuck)

Got the Kubota L2000 with Leon loader, 5' finish mower, 4' box blade and two new turf tires for $2200

Got the Mobility loader for $700

+ countless antique farm tractors like two Massey-Harris 44's for $500!

And then my all time favorite buy was this 1941 Ford 9N, it had brand new back tires, the guy said it quit on him and he was sick of it, i paid $500 and the only thing wrong was the gas tank was empty!

Dumped in some gas and it started right up and ran perfect!

Got to love Craigslist!!!!!
