It may be worth it, but I'd see if there is any wiggle room. Maybe meet them at $150. Actually the cart alone is worth most of that I bet.

I would go for it also, but I would offer them 100.00. You can always go up.

I can't give you weight, but they are heavier than they look. Especially with the tendon, get some willing hands to help.

Dont come home without it, the cart is worht at least the asking price, and the tractor has it orginal hood, something ussally gone. loos to be maybe an L series tractor, i see a reverse handle so that make it better yet. And yes always low ball, he cant do more than say no.

Ok Lauber1,

He is away right now anyway, so it's not going anywhere until I see it. I don't know much about these at all.
Other than the cart is part of the sulky(had to look it up). Not sure why I need another "project", I have many already. I just liked the look of this. I guess eventually I'll know how to fix this stuff..lol

BTW, what were the missing brake pads on the sulky made out of? I want to say wood, but I could be all wet.

That might be a good one if you can haggle a bit. Good luck.
