Talking That Moment when you know you should not but you do anyways

So some time next week this thing will be making its way to the farm





Sometimes you see a deal and you just need to jump on it

Looks like a great deal. You could probably put a slow moving sign on it and get your money back at the scrap yard. lol

I also look forward to the berm moving project...

That is one sweet rig. I have used these many times painting. Biggest cost would be moving it. But still a great rig as long as the hours are low.

The problem stopping at $4000 is someone would have "Ebay bumped" it to $4010

This thing came from about three miles from home. I drove by it at least twice every day. I was hoping/not hoping my boss would buy it. He's been on a dirt moving mission the last three or four years. I've been telling him a pan is the right tool for the job for 80% of what hes been doing, but always blows it off. I told him about this one, but he didn't seem too interested. Which is stupid for him, vut goid for me, I don't want to work on it anyway!

So, one of these showed up at the dealer here... what's the deal, did you sell it back to them? Did they end up with another one exactly the same? Did you move dirt and then trade it in on a new tractor?

Mine is at work at a buddy's farm, building a Jet boat practice track. With the rent he has already paid I could use about 6 more machines
