I picked up 4 25# suitcase weights and 5 20# for $150.00

 

While the owner and I where loading them he asked if I was into tractor pulling and I said no GT's are just a hobby (addiction) of mine. So... he said he had something he had listed on a different tractor forum and no one was interested.

Well I followed him around back, I see a MF12H sitting there, he said no one wanted it and he was going to scrap it!!! I asked how much he would want and he said $75.00. :dancingbanana:

It has everything except the engine, it even has everything  for the rear lift. just missing the main hoop. Tire chains and even has the seat!

 

Then he said he had some more stuff he had listed for $25 each on the Other tractor forum with no bites.

So we proceded around yet another corner, there I saw a snow blower and a mower deck (in great condition) for the Jacobsen chiefs (36" timing belt deck, and single stage blower).

 

I was in to much shock to get pics and I had to get off to work, but I am going to be going over to at least pay him tomorrow before work. I will get pics then.

 

What a great guy he was too! Beautiful place and Lots of great equipment and GT's!

His name is Stephen and I told him how great our site and the members are, so hopefully he'll be along to join us. :D

You think that was a steal, you should see the wheel weights I kept off the Scrap Massey I sold Alan for at the same price I rescued it for LOL. Of course I did deliver the Scrap Massey to him at plow day lol.

PS, don't kill me for the partial hijack, I do think you did better than Alan lol.

Nice catch Chris. It shouldn't be too hard to find an engine for that 12.

If you find you need some parts, once you start wrenching it, give me a

buzz. I have several carcasses sitting around.
