Haven't bought anything yet but there is seriously an explosion of nice cubs on there for 500 and under. They all need homes too. Good loving homes just like I have. We would need to build another shed!

not around here everyone thinks their 15 yo worn out box store machine is still worth 90% of new. and if they disclose a problem by describing how it "acts funny" or you gotta turn your head to the West and pinch your nose to get the deck to work still think it's worth 75% of what a new one is....

Without Craigslist, I'd be whittling sticks on the porch to pass time, HA! It's spring and tractors will be lugged out and listed for sale. I've been using some of the tractors that I've picked up and getting things done. I like finding a great deal on a crusty old garden tractor and bringing it back to life. Somehow I manage to pick up ones that need a ton of work, but they are the cheapest in most cases, and usually in good shape under the crust. Internal water damage is my biggest fear on the rusty ones. This Gard'n Mast'r Jr. I recently picked up from Craigslist surprised me. It's rough on the outside, but no water damage in the engine,transmission, rear end, or steering box. For 200.00, it turned out to be a great deal, and didn't break the bank. I'm working on restoring it now and having a blast with it. There will be deals on Craigslist for years to come, so don't buy something just because it's a good deal today. There are many more hobbies out there that are way more expensive than GT's, and at least GT's are useful. One could always buy and sell on Craigslist and make a few bucks with some elbow grease. It would be one way to fund the hobby, and some are doing it.

A friend of mine was a "horse hoarder" (had 8 and looking for more) until I asked him how many he could ride at one time... He is down to one with a spare in case the first one goes lame

Yeah I do. I was buying belts, tires, batteries , carbs, brakes, seats, gaskets, gas and oil for a crap load of GTs that I thought I needed to save. They are not Ethiopians, some one will buy them and use them. They dont do anyone any good parked in my back yard

Yep, I bought and sold a bunch of riding mowers and garden tractors in the past 20 years or so.  Had a lot of fun, made some money, and learned lot while doing it.  I only kept 2...the 318 and the 4020.  But, I still watch C L !!!    :thumbs:

I have the perfect solution for you. For a small fee, I'll come and pick up several of your tractors. They'll be stored indoors and displayed at several local tractor shows. They'll obviously still be yours and you'll have access whenever you want to come to Pennsylvania for a visit. That'll leave you room to buy more tractors.

The small fee will be even smaller if you deliver them.

FYI, I'd prefer storing your Panzer and the Simplicity...
