picked up a 2014 G5500, with a sleeve hitch, Brinly plow, disc, and cultivator, Sears fertilizer spreader, 54" mower deck, ag tires, and turf tires, extra transaxle, and a push mower......for 600$

Tractor started right up, ran fine, moved as it should.

I don't need the tractor, and deck, so my buddy bought it, before it even came off the trailer.

Had to drive a couple hours, round trip- to get it tonight.

so, how'd I do?

That's the deal of a lifetime. You'd better paint Everything!

Looks like those were only made for one year and sold for $3500 new. I hope you were wearing a mask when you robbed those people. Lol

we split the cost-so we're each into it 300. He's a kid (22) I've known for 16 years, likes messing with small engines. He'll clean the tractor up, and flip it. He's got a Midas touch. He'll clean the tractor up, change the spark plug and oil, and sell it, probably for around a thousand.

It's not about the money, I really couldn't use the tractor-I can't use my legs, so a foot control-well, I just really didn't want to get into coming up with a good way to adapt it.

I've already got 3 tractors, I can use, without any modification.

For my 300, I got the attachments, including a manual sleeve hitch,(already have powered sleeves on 2 of my tractors) so, I'm well satisfied.

He rode along, and loaded everything, then unloaded it at my house, so all is good.

We had a nice chance to talk on the drive. That's something we don't get to do often.

Thanks for the comments, and have a great day.

If its says "Craftsman" on the side and you got rid of it before you even unloaded it I'd say you did VERY WELL!!!  :thumbs:
