An interesting machine but not for me.

4 x 4 loader.jpg

 

 

Could this be the king of small tractors? It is a 70's tractor, articulated, 4 wheel drive, loader, CAT 0 3-pt hitch with weight box. It has a cast iron B&S engine. The loader lifts to 8' (measured to cutting edge with bucket curled back). Cutting edge on bucket is a replaceable bolt one. It has concrete wheel weights and the weight box is full of machinist cutting bits (almost a solid steel block). The loader can out lift the counterweight. This is a rare collectable tractor that is very useful to have around. Excellent for snow removal. Same manufacture as Pug by Bruce, it was called the Twister

Yes, but you'd have to look for a while to find another IMO, interesting little thing.

It seems that this spring there has been alot of unusual GTs up for sale in my area. I bought the first Bush Hog I've seen in person, 2 weeks ago. I'm seeing Panzars, a Speedex, and a few others recently. I think that the economy is pushing people to sell what they can. Good Luck, Rick

And for sale with a attitude.

 

"Do I have to say if the ad is still up, it is still for sale? Also, I don't need your help to sell it since you don't even know what it is."

Don't you get the stupid replies when using Craigslist? There's a reason you're seeing this in more adds.

His attitude is what would make me not buy it.

Trust me, there's a reason you're seeing this on more and more ads, and it's NOT attitude.

I put something along the lines of "If the ad is still up it's still available.".

 

I routinely get emails asking "Is it still available?".  Not stuff like "If you've still got it I'd like to come see it", just "Is it still available".  Usually sent between 1 and 3 AM from a smartphone.  IMO, not serious buyers.

Exactly my point, I have gotten these emails and or texts within five minutes of posting an add.
