Well Guys here i go again, 4 hrs each way, made the same trip last thursday and brought home 2 nice tractors, but on this trip theres snow up there, the gentleman i am buying these from is finding them a good home before his son scraps them, hes 89 and has mobility issues and going into a home,wish i could deal with the son, i'd save a lot of money but i am happy with the deal i am getting and isn't that what counts, i get some great tractors and he sees his pride and joy go to a good home, i really have to post pics but for some reason my camera is not downloading, i picked up a nice B100 and a raider 12 both from the original owners, same story sons want new machines, which is good for me, i got a great buy on both of them but its sad, these machines will work forever with a little tlc, if i have any money left i will pick up a new camera and post a ton of pics, oh h*ll i'll borrow a camera i want to show off my goodies

Yes, you've got to borrow that camera.

You can't just drag all that stuff home, and not show us. :D

Congrats on the finds. Keep in mind that most people today are of the "use it and toss it" mentality. They don't have any concept of maintaining and repairing the equipment themselves. Most repair shops are so expensive that owners would rather run things until they drop and then buy a new one. What they don't understand is that "new and improved" is usually neither. This can benefit collectors and unfortunately scrap yards.

 

I have discovered a great way to work on the computor. I have headphones and Youtube on. I'm listening to "Shootout at the Fantasy Factory" for the first time in 30 years. Many of the older things are better than is made today. Good Luck, Rick
