No,Robin I sure didn't mind the tailgating.Every time I looked in the mirror I had to smile.:D Didn't have as much time to talk tractors with Brent as I would have liked.After we got it loaded we noticed a tire on the trailer was flat.After putting air in it we could hear air leaking out.So Brent gave me directions to a small shop about two miles away.The old boy in there had me fixed up and refilled my coffee for less than $5.00. The tactor is a B-112.It has a mower deck,snow blade and tiller all in very good condition.I was so impressed with it I didn't even try to haggle on the price.;)

Glad you're please with the machine Mack. If I like FDT I'd have kept that one for sure, as complete and straight as it is. Kitt's Economy Service hasn't changed their prices since I was a kid 20 years ago. Nice folks there. At the sale I went to after you left, the actioneer was trying to get me to go higher on a JD 110 than I was willing ($410 was high enough for me). He said "Come on. Bet you don't have one like that at home". I politely said "you're right", but was thinking "You're right, I buy these green pieces of junk to part out so I can afford buy more orange ones!" I also didn't want to get lynched by some green fanatic in the crowd. Even though as much it pains me to admit it, the '68 JD 110 w/ "hydra lift" is a pretty decent machine. Good luck with the B-112 and let us know if you decide to restore it to showroom new. Brent

You got that right Brent,I was at a sale on Saturday and a JD110 with deck and the front pto attachment went for $650.They also had a wheel horse,broadmor size that was clean and run good $280.There was an old case I was interested in,10hp kohler,hydro and it was in great original shape $400.The guy that bought the case had been standing beside it for 20mins. and I don't believe he would have quit bidding till he had it.Which he does.No AC stuff.:(

2 hours is about what I drove for my B-112 Paul. Sure wasn't that pretty, but have never regetted the drive. Brents dislike for FDT's?????? is most surely to your benifit this time around.

Believe me, MDB, it was tough cause I could see $ signs when I looked at the 42" tiller and nice heavy duty blade, but since it was an all original package complete with the manual and delivery record, I didn't feel right about splitting it up.

I sat beside my B10 in a camp chair till they got to it. I jumped in on the first bid and won out at the end $100 Long befor the auctioner got to it one of the guys standing near by that had looked it over ask what I was there for? I said that and pointed right at it. He stopped at $50. I think a few more didn't bid or quit because I had said that.

Brent, I will have to sell some of my other stuff now to pay for this and the restoration. But it will make a fine show tractor and will have some light dutys to perform. Look for updates and pictures as the weather warms.:D
