Old Sears Tractor

I really have no need of this, I won't touch it for that kind of money. I've never seen a GT so rusty in Amarillo, rust grows slow with no water.

If you know you should stay away than you are one step closer to buying it!!!!

Looks like an old David Bradley Sears tractor. It's too rich for me too, but I'll bet there are a lot of folks out there who would take it at that price.

Can't help you on this one. The very fact you asked us to tell you not to buy it, means you want it.
Good luck with the Haggleing.

I'm not gonna call, he'd probably take my offer, I've got no business buying that thing. Thank God for this heat, otherwise i'd be more tempted, just walk away

I really think you should make an offer. If I was closer I would snatch it up. I like the old David Bradleys.

Just now took a look at the listing. That's a David Bradley "Suburban". He is a bit high. If near me, I'd offer $150. I used to own one & have been kicking myself ever since trading it off. Great little tractors. Mine had a Briggs model 14 engine, a complete working mower deck, and I added hydraulics & rear 3pt lift. I've always wanted to find another, but none close enough yet. Sadly, I have no pics of my old ride.

That would look nice, all prettied up. But, you shouldn't consider it.

I'm still trying to figure out how you could consider not buying it.

When I first saw it I was thinking a 150.00 offer, then I got scared he'd take it. It would look kool, It would make for a dramatic before and after picture if someone (olcowhand) did it.
