As a best find, I was fortunate to find someone selling two John Deere 140's, #10 cart, and many attachments as part of an estate sale. $400 took home the contents on the flatbed trailer. This was truly an amazing find.

Other than a couple of freebies for parts, I guess my best buy was my 1st Ford LGT. It was a running tractor, came withn a deck, snow blade and roto tiller....all for $50. The guy that had it had been driving it, the steering box broke and he went into a ditch....He said he was lucky he wasnt badly hurt and just wanted it gone. He bought a brand new Kubota cut tractor with all the toys to replace it, so I dont think he was hurting for money.

Thank you, it was really cool to find and learn about the old Brinly and Haban implements. Not to mention the #33 tiller. Lots of projects to work on now.

I'm not even a John Deere guy, and I am VERY impressed with that haul!

Just kidding. I'm happy to have my just one Panzer. But sure do enjoy seeing what everyone else is working on.

That was funny. I didn't scroll down far enough to see the rest of your post, and I wondered where you came from. "Different strokes for different folks" I guess. :laughingteeth:

im a power kin fan so i have to say my dream would be... 1946 power king serial number 101, the first one produced. its actually in wickishaw wisconson as far as i know.

my best find is my 1971 1614 power king, i knew a guy who put it on craigs list and i emailed him about it then he came to my house and said i could have it... for free! when he gave it to me it did not run but he helped find the problem was the coil, i had anothr so we swaped it and it ran. i use it almost everyday now.
