To be fair, we just used it as a gate to stop people nicking my tractor!
I believe he got about $10k for it. but it is a fair old weight, the buckets were about 6000lbs each.

Bolens Hydro pumps are going for $250 each apiece on ebay next time you think 0.25 cents a pound.
YAEH I KNOW ! CRAZY! :bash:The wheel weights alone would have doubled my money but it was one of those "just buy what i need & not what i want" trips so i had to pass it up unfortunately !

For example, some success stories.
This beauty was put out to pasture many years ago after loosing her back half. Her back half has served our farm since the 40's, starting off hauling seed and feed. Than in the 70's after a couple of engines and 2 transmissions it was retired and the back half was cut off and pulled behind our tractors for different jobs. It is now awaiting the transmission being removed for a project, it's been sitting out in the field since the 80's.
Here's story number 2, the corn picker is one of our best success stories. She was parked out next to the grove by the house many years ago with her sister. Her sister fell victim to thieves and lost many parts. She was pressed into service back in 2009, with nothing more than a new belt, and some grease. Than she rolled out to the field. Working until finally a rusted out pulley broke into two pieces, he sister gladly donated the life saving pulley and she was back to work in under an hour. picking 3 acres of corn by the next days nightfall.
That's a shame to see people scrap good things, why can't they be like us? We haven't had to buy a part for our corn picker yet.

Yeah it suuccckkksss like the current weather when the buy interferes with the acquisition. So a neighbor came to me and offered a Jd110 w/no mower deck for the right money. Went to look at it last night and the dry rotted tires were froze into the mud, motor mechanically froze, fiberglass hood minor cracks, hasn't run in years -the price was right. Can't wait to get it home and get Casey's tractor done. Sometimes a challenge is just that.
Well sparky if you were close ida fixed you right up with a good one that wasnt froze to the ground my neighbor has this one for sale just needs a deck & selinoid says it runs like a top! hes got it on craigslist 150.00 i think! also said theres a deck on there for it for 30.00 somebody else has !
by the way for those of you who dont know how lil patience i have for computers & wonder why im not on this site much anymore its taken me 45 min to post these two replies & 3 pics lol!
