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.
