Seen one advertised on Facebook. Was asking $275 for it. Went and looked it over this evening and seen right off it was not $275 RAM. We talked about I for a bit and he is a Ford man. Had 2 or 3 Ford GTt's. Told him I had on in the shed that I used for spraying only and told him about it. We decided we would trade straight across but he had to talk to his wife first. They were needing money so she said no trade no, take cash only. So we cut another deal. I gave him $150 for the RAM and when he get ahead a little and scrap prices come back he will buy my Ford for $150. No a complete unit but enough there it is a good project and will give me some fabrication practice. Only thing I am not sure on is that big Yoke on the back sitting cross wise? ?
Then he mentioned he had a couple of big Ag tires that would fit on the RAM. We went and looked at them and bought them for $25, rims and all.
The serial number on the tractor is 44225 The model is 231 01 023 01. It is missing some parts, like the shroud, air cleaner system, belt cover and possibly some other items. Haven't really went over it all yet.
Best part of the whole deal, if he follows through on getting my Ford is I got that Ford about 5 years ago, traded a 12 pack of Bud Light for it and he pushed it on my trailer. How can one go wrong on a deal like that? ?
