I think that we should meet at the machine shop at 1100 hrs. That will give time to walk around first. I will be wearing an old camo shirt and carrying a ruck with a "GTT" sign on the back. Good Luck, Rick

Got there early, walked the place 4 times. Prices were pretty high on the GTs. No bush hogs, most didn't know what a bush hog was. I saw a small Ford dump trailer I thought about picking up, but the frame had a fair amount of rot and the tow bar was bent. Plus I had no idea where the man was who was selling it.

 

Amber got to hand crank an AC to start and that put a smile on her face. She found a Case Thermos, that was about it. Hope more turn out tomorrow and the prices come down a bit.

 

They did have an E14 Electrak though! Wanted $500 for it, and it was repainted sadly.

Pretty small turnout! Got there at 9 walked it twice. Didnt see anybody. There was a older power king with new tires for 400! Rough shape, I would've bought it but that was my whole budget and wanted other stuff lol. Tomorrow should bring a lot more people! Sent from my SPH-L900 using Tapatalk 4 Beta

I didn't see the powerking, just a ton of cubs that were way too much. The MF12 looked nice from far away, but up close, IMO it was ok. Not $900 ok though. I saw the DB when I walked in, never asked what he wanted for it though.

I got there at 0900 and walked around with a white GTT sign on my backpack until a little before 1100. It was uncomfortably hot and there was only about 2/3 the dealers as usual. I got a couple of good deals on AC and Wheelhorse parts. The best tractor deal seemed to be a Bolens 1050 with good deck and hydraulic lift for $275. There were some machines that I'd never seen before, including a small grader called a Roth(pic to follow).

 

We then went to see if anyone was going to be at the machine shop. Waited at the machine shop and had a great conversation with the gentleman there. Matt O. showed up.  I gave Matt the parts that I brought for him. I was overly hot so, we gave up and went home. Good Luck, Rick

The power king was in the horse shoe by all the old equipment. Yeah the mf12 looked to be painted over the old without sanding! I was the big guy walking around with full tattooed sleeves and my three young daughter's lol Considering I'm ten minutes away I'm going to be there again tomorrow.

I went today, terrible turnout. Maybe half the size of yesterday. I did score a muffler for $4 though for a kohler. We brought the black labs, they had alot of fun walking around.

There will be another at Zagray on Oct 5 - 6 and Plainfield Oct 12. I made out pretty good yesterday with parts for my AC B10. I was disappointed in the turn outs but with the heat it was understandable. Has anyone heard from Chris M? He was going to come but now I'm worried about his father. Good Luck, Rick
