Went to Lincoln Days Saturday for the tractor show- Congrats to Daniel for winning Best of Show- and had been there for less than 30min when a guy came up to look at the 430. He said it was allot cleaner than his and was wanting to know if I knew anybody that was looking for one. I was all ears at that point :smile1: He said it was complete with deck but had a blown engine, someone owed him money and he did not want to tackle it. Soooo, I said what are you looking to get out of it? $300!! Plus when I got to his house to pick it up it had the "deluxe" seat support I had been wanting! :dancingbanana::dancingbanana::dancingbanana:

Good Deal, very happy for you!

When you get it running, are you going to try to sell it to your BIL? :laughingteeth:

Thanks guys, parts are pricey for Yanmar but for the price I got it for I can put some $ in it and still be ok-- I hope!! The cheapest I have seen the deluxe seat support on E-bay is $225.

Nice deal you got there. Hope repairs won't be too much to get it running again. Always nice to have a pair of tractors. Good luck with it.
