Christmas Money

If you recieve a $1000 for Christmas and can only spend it on your AC or Simplicity equipment what would you get? This question was posted on a different site and thought this would be a good question. Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas:)

I think it should read like this... If you could have ONLY $1000 to spend on your tractors, what would you want the most? Yes, you can get more than one thing if you have change left..... LOL I think it would have to be the B-1 Fork lift for my top pick....

Good luck on finding a B-1 forklift for $1000... buy me one when you find some... :D I'd choose to spend the most of a $1000 on the 515 loader I have (it could use a new bucket, some hoses, perhaps a newer, bigger pump, etc.), and rebuild/repaint a tractor to put it on... probably a B-12...

Kent, I know someone looked at one within the past year and a half or so. It was in pretty bad shape, rusty etc. as I recall but it could be had for that $1000.... So there you go, got a grand so I can go get the evidence??? LOL

Paint and decals,got 4 done and 7 more to get done. Kent I'm not sure on the 515 loader,but on my johnson workhorse loader I improved the lift.At the hydrolic valve there was a relief spring that I added a couple flat washers behind.I can get behind a small car now and pick it right up off the ground.

jeese pappy, How can you even ask??? Once your have one of everything you like... then you get more B110s. I am constantly amazed at how cheap these classics are. You could probably get two mint ones and some accessories too. I have to agree with Jk, they do kind'da look like allis D21's.

I'd completely rebuild the B110 mechanically but not paint, overhaul a few other motors, If I could stretch the $1000 far enough I'd have someone else overhaul the motors, and buy some kind of cultivator. Maybee some ag tires too.

Just checked the Small engine warehouse site, it looks like the 16 HP briggs take would the whole $1000 with shipping...:I

That sounds about as good as this investment advice... > If you had bought $1000.00 of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be worth $49.00. With Enron, you would have $16.50 of the original $1,000.00. With Worldcom, you would have less than $5.00 left. > > If you had bought $1,000.00 worth of Budweiser (the beer, not the stock) one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the cans for the 10 cent deposit, you would have $214.00. Based on the above, my current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle. This is my new retirement program, I call it my 401Keg program.
