Last Saturday I gave away a 122 and a 107 to a good friend. Plus a solid 42U mowing deck and all of the narrow frame parts I had except I kept the original frame for jpackard56. 107 has been outside since I had it, 122 has been stored in the shop. Yes I could have sold the two but I wanted to pay it forward. He has been good to me and my family years past. About a 5 hr round trip for him and his wife and it was so good to see them again!

 

I'm glad to reclaim some much needed room in the shop. I spent all day yesterday cleaning up the shop and found more narrow frame parts we missed but they will all fit in a large flat rate USPS box and I'll ship them to him.

Class act of kindness. It's not always about making money...kindness goes a long way. He'll have a story to tell many times.

Cool to do this, the reward of this hobby is always in the smiles. I feel like the value of these tractors are so crazy fluctuating at times that the only way this hobby will stay alive in future generations of tractor guys, is if they can relate a story to a tractor, like we all usually do with our own aquisitions. :D

Well Kevin the guys above have already said it better than what I could say. But I knew a long time ago you weren't just about making money, ya it's nice at times and it's necessary at times, but sometimes it's just the sharing and encouragement of a common interest.

I appreciate that you posted about the idea of paying forward. As you know my wife and I have talked about everything around here that needs done as we look at downsizing some and whats really important to us and the idea of putting some items in the hands of folks that will enjoy/use them before we are gone seems way better than our kids just having an auction someday. I myself am supposedly getting a free-bee this week and if I can't get it to do what I want it for (reasonably) we've already decided to somehow try to forward it onto one of the junior members on here or have it be a door prize at one of the plow-days we visit.

Thanks for putting the idea in front of so many other folks by posting :thumbs:

No praise unto me fellas, I was really needing the room and clean up around my place. A few yrs ago we lost our shed(small two horse stall barn) to a storm. One stall was full of CC parts. My wife asked if I was going to haul off the parts for scrap? I replied " sweetheart I never have nor will I start scraping any CC sheet metal and iron". I contacted one of my cubnut friend's from Glasgow KY and he hauled a load home knowing it would not go to the scrap yard. If I'm looking for a part for one of mine he has always been there for me and I for him as well in the past...good relationship to have!

 

Back in 2010 two fellas from east TN came and got a mother load of tractors and parts I had. It was not free but I shot them a price so cheap they could not refuse.

I was recently on the receiving end of a similar pay it forward.  I got a half restored 1954 IH R100 pickup truck with a pile of N.O.S. parts to go with it.  If will be a few years till that one gets started on.
