No price!  No call from people with-out!  Loader is best part I think. Interesting weights made up.

You got to hate it when they put no prices in the ads. I always think it is high priced when they do
that. Who wants to ask the price of everything.

I like the picture where he was sure to capture the drywall damage from backing into the wall over and over.

I always take the lead in those situations.  I call and make an offer and when the owner says "What the heck!" I say, "Well, you didn't say any price so I figured anything goes!"

Perhaps I have been watching American Pickers too much as I see some neat stuff there. But Ed, where is the price?untitled frank.png Usually a bad sign.

He sure does have quite a bit.  I have restored quite a few Sears and I'm sure he didn't aquire that overnight.  That being said- he will most likely want to be compensated for all that he has into it........which never happens.......

Looks like a great retirement project for someone. Restoring all those tractors and attachments would be quite an undertaking. Probably wants 10 grand for it though.

Well, that worked better than coffee.
Nice collection there. All I kept thinking was "So HE's the guy" :D

Interesting weights made up.

Those weights on the back? They are OEM. 50# a piece, from memory.

I think he has a some nice pieces, I think I've seen that tractor with the loader somewhere on the net before. Would've mind that hydrotrac either.

 

Alan, I have a buddy, about 8-10 times that collection of Sears. He has 2 loaders and will be picking up a front flail mower soon from Georgia, only 1 of 6 known to exist.
