It's going to take a nicer one than that to get me to shell out that kind of coin. But once I do, I'm going to load that G right on a big trailer, aim for Michigan, and see how many tractors I can try and talk Josh out of with it.

Hahaha...good effort, I appreciate the thought Cat!

G's get good money, but thats a plain jane and a bit high for most. I had a runner with cultivator set all but bought last summer. $2000, but simply couldnt justify selling so many small tractors to fit it in! =)

Some have gone to $10K though...there are some scarce options and rare attachments for these....even a loader!

I actually see many in use here regularly. We have lots of veggie farms and greenhouses up this way, and G's are popular choices.

It's a cultivator.

 

The front 'wheels' drive the rears at  a higher speed so that they churn up the dirt.

 

They are also adjustable from side to side to accommodate different row spacing.

 

Pretty slick attachment.

Called rolling harrows in my area. Can't imagine sitting in the dust cloud churned up by using them. AC also had a hay rake for the G's. That would be worse for dust...Dave

seems to be a rash of over priced stuff out there right now. I wouldn't say its worth more than $1800, if it runs. Don't get where everyone think its rare as there are a lot of them around here. The veggie crop guys all seem to have at least one.

When my next door neighbor had his farm equipment business, I remember several of these tractors sitting up there. You could practically buy them with pocket change at that time. I know one guy around here that rescued one from going to the scrap pile. He's a die hard Deere guy but said he couldn't pass it up. He put it back together and got it running and now he has a real nice G that he got for a song. Some guys just fall into it.

On of my jobs this last summer the farmer had one of these. He was using it daily in his veggie farm. Neat to still see it being used

no I keep getting side tracked on to other jobs, too many other tractor showed up all at once and took the floor space. i finally got a storage shed for the extra ones, cleaned out the shop, but then came winter and I filled it up with stuff for corn burning. Maybe we wont get a full six months of winter this yr and an early spring. I have noticed that there seems to be a lot of seeding machines showing up here lately, so I may have to stop and take care of that problem. Don't you just hate it when stuff come in faster than you can restore it.
