Went to the auction today,There were many older pieces of equipment for sale.
The highest priced tractor went for 1700.00,Tthe Eshelmen it was all original with front wheel weights,but still way more than I was expecting,A nos hh60 tecumseh went for 175.00The Rototiller B16 went for
There was a Wm Didier Sickle bar that at the time I did not have any idea what it was for the Ford 165 garden tractor that sold I do not recollect what the Tractor sold for but the sickckle bar went for 175.00
I did not purchase any equipment but did have my eye on a box that had some manuals in it plus some older tilloston carb parts.
When it came time for my box the auctioneer said every thing in the corner was up for bids.I was determined to get what I was after.It cost me almost fifty dollars for the winning bid but I came out alright.
I pulled a storage wars trick and stayed behind and went thru the box.Just about every pice of equipment sold had the manual in the box.Including the correspondence with eshelman regarding not getting the parts that he ordered for him to rebuid the tractor.
This was an old nursery that the owners had deceased and every thing that was there was bought by the owner new.
I do not see 1700 for a tractor that you did not even know if it ran.I do have the notes that it was rebuilt in 1964
