I shipped a tractor from Indiana to Connecticut and it also was $100. Get this - it was dropped off in Indiana at 3pm on a Friday. I get a call Monday morning from the CT location that it was already there and had actually been dropped off late Sunday night. Awesome! $100 flat - no tax, no fees, nothing!

Typically when I ship tractors thru Fastenal I use an inexpensive set of ratchet straps from Harbor Freight ($9.99 for 4) and wrap it up with a cheap 2mil plastic drop cloth from Home Depot. Add a little bit of packaging tape to hold the plastic in place and you're ready to go.

Thanks! Its a MD55. I had wanted one for years and every one I saw was beaten to death or a ridiculous asking price. Patience paid off. I found this one as part of an estate auction about 10 minutes from my house. It is 100% original, rust free and clean. I have the front blade for it too. It was me and one other guy at the auction bidding on it and he bailed out much sooner than I expected. :thumbs:

I'd be interested in more details on the tractor shipments...Iv'e been told by Fastenal that if they roll, they do not need to be palletized, but would have to have accompanying flat-ended straps to secure to the trailer wall.  Seems I'm shipping with them every week, but have a few tractors I would love to RECEIVE!  :thumbs:

 

It's great to know you utilize them as well, because you've sold a few that I would have loved to have had for keeps. :worshippy1:
