Is this worth it??

Recommended Posts

Times are tight for me right now as I just dropped in a new heat pump on my house. I just saw this pop up on CL and am wondering if its worth the 6hr round trip just to save it from the crusher. I dont really think it is, and probably should save the fuel money(diesel aint cheap) but i just hate to see these get recycled. What do you guys think? http://fayetteville.craigslist.org/grd/2751894281.html

I would not make the drive either, but 75 doesnt seem to bad to me. Mine was in worse shape just cleaned everything up and some stuff I had laying around and now it runs like a champ. Ive seen them go much higher.

I'd tell him the 6 hour trip costs as much or more than the tractor is worth and that I'd save it from the scrapyard, but couldn't pay anything for it. He might well be glad to have it out of his yard. Then I'd look for other goodies along the route.... 8D

Hey David . I agree with most of you guys that it would not be worth the expense of getting it home unless he wants to pay you to haul it off.He might be paying some one to haul it to the crusher

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
