    Didn't do too bad on this one

    I had half interest, basically had 2 days of my time invested, no $$. After ebay fees and paypal, should end up with $900 for my share,

    Good work getting harder to find a nice truck like that. My dad said there is a MM out by the airport on the blacktop in Belle Forche (real great directions I know) do you know anything about it? A couple of U's sell March 13th by Chadron Nebraska going to see if we can make a full load!

    This is what I got from work for 500:

    2001 F-150 supercab 4x4 auto 236,000 locked up 4.6 has a toolbox in the bed full of staple guns grade 8 bolts nails. Have 5 aluminum rims plus the spare, new battery in it. Always serviced at Ford.
    2005 Scag Commercial walk behind mower, they just quit using after two years and it has sat inside since '07 have new blades for it
    2005 Outback brush cutter with honda engine same deal as the mower,
    troy built rototiller that someone started taking apart but has a honda engine on it
    three sets of tractor duals nothing special said id take em if I got the mower one set is a usable pair of 16.9x30's
    Bucket of brass and copper, roll of thick copper cable
    Misc JD parts most fit tractors we have
    About 20 snap boomers since they can't use them commercial anymore.


    About everything above is or will be for sale Very Happy

    You got all that for $500?
    Score!!
    Those Skag walk behinds are the best. I used to service a bunch of them and they outlasted everything else. Did you get the little cart to stand on? Wanna do some tradin?

    All of it for 500 from the place I work at. They were gonna scrap all the lawn stuff so I set it off to the side! Also forgot I got a new 18.4-34 tire that still has the stickers on it in there too. They thought the mowers were worthless to anyone else but they are trying to sell old fuel transfer tanks that have sat out without the caps and are full of water.

    I didn't get a cart and I haven't seen one laying around for it. I might be interested in some trades shoot me an email if you have something in mind.

    Not bad directions from pop. Airport is just north of town on 85, don't recall the tractor, maybe I'll scoot out there and take a look.

    He said it is before the airport. Thought there was a trailer house out there and a few things sitting around. Thought in might be a GBD MM. Just called him on 85 on the big hill on the west side of the road one of the last things before you get to nothing. He thought that if you get to the welcome to belle forche sign you went to far. If that isn't good he is going through there in a few days and said he would pay more attention.

    If I had a millon bucks I would be running all over the country chasing tractors he sends pictures of.

    I know just where you are talking about. I'll check it out and see if I can find out who it belongs to, or if it is still there.

    I drove out there today and found another Z, maybe older, it has the mesh grille. I got the guy's number and it turns out I know him pretty good, bought some cars from him a few years ago. He's elk hunting in New Mexico for the next week. I have a couple pictures on my camera. I'll see if I can get them juggled on here tonight.
    There's also an old Case, maybe an LA, the one with the front axle sticking way out front. A 2n on rubber but the steel is in the shed and an 8N with the 6 banger Funk conversion.

    Thanks JB looking forward to the pics! Dad said it looked like a decent tractor thought it had a flat tire.

    Truck deal went sour. The buyer was from Sturgis and came over this morning to see if he could get it so it would drive home. TadaTada, he screws around for a couple hours and I finally go out to see what's going on and help him get it popped off. Sounded like it might have a stuck valve and he backs out of the deal. I could have told him to bite me, I had the money and he had the title. I'm just too nice, think I'll go punch myself in the face a couple times.

    Oh, and FWIW, the guy who bought the 56 F250 also thought he could get it running and drive it 150 miles home. What the hell is wrong with people? What don't they get about a non functional vehicle that has been setting 10 years? I also spent half a day with that hon-yocker and that truck is still setting in my yard too. I did get half of the money but now I have to wait for him to come back in 2 weeks with a trailer.
