Went to dang near Wichita for a almost new snow/dirt blade, mower deck, tire chains, and rear weight for a JD214. Paid 150.00 for all. I tried and tried to get a hold of a guy with a Allis 912 Hydro for 400.00 with 3 point hitch, guess what, he returned my call when I got back down here to the Indian Nations. Anyway, he agreed to hold it for me, I'll take the trailer and get it tomorrow, just saw another 912 Hydro with a tiller for 500.00 or best offer. I emailed the guy and I'll try to get both tomorrow, If it doesn't work out I got a guy holding a Wheel Horse D-250 with a Renault engine, bad head gasket he wants 350.00, it's got some attachments. I was wondering when I'll run out of money, still hasn't happened, lol. I really want two or three of each brand made from 1972-1980, Hydros only. anyway, I'm stoked about the new blade, deck, chains, and rear weight

One 912 Hydro sold an hour before I got to wichita, the guy wouldn't hold it, at least he was up front sort of. The wheel horse was supposed to be a 300-400 dollar deal, blown head gasket, need to get it off the property. Apparently some "einstein" calls the guy and says that it's worth 1500.00, he's not interested in buying, just appraising a junk tractor for the rest of us buyers. The guy ask me what it was worth, I said if I were a wheel horse collector, AND I thought it was repairable, I MIGHT give 6 or 7 hundred. I told him I didn't collect wheel horses and I really didn't know if I'd go 350-400 and promptly left. I drove 30 miles south to meet the kid after school to see the other 912 Hydro, it was junk and I left before He got home, he called and I said I saw it and it wasn't "right" for me. Oh well, you can't win them all

Yeah and it really wasnt a three point by any strech. Some kind of up and down sliding lift, not sure how it worked, or what implements would work on it
