It allways provides hours of enjoyable brousing. I've bought most of the hoses I needed for my big tractors from there and saved alot. I check the seats section early because I allways need seats. There is a nice looking seat for $19.99 but the shipping is too much. If someone lives near there they may be able to get a good deal. 


They have added more generic type of mechanical supplies. This is good because many of these "off the shelf" supplies will fit the older tractors. Good Luck, Rick

Their shipping seems at times to be a little on the high side!

UPS gives a lot of companies a big discount on truck load or near truck load shipments.  UPS backs the truck to the dock and the co. loads it.  In return the co. has to commit to ship everything by UPS.  They have a minimum charge for any order and goes up from there.  US Stoves is an example.  Went to order a small part that weighed about 4 oz.  $19.95 shipping.  No Thanks.
