a neighbor stopped by and wanted to know if i was interested in a couple old tractors his dad had had. he showed me pictures on his tablet. both have junk front rims/ no tires, and back tires are shot. don't know about the rims. one is an F20 and has been inside a garage, engine ran a couple years ago, has 1 headlight and F&H rear weights. the other is a regular. i think he said engine was free. he doesn't want to see them scrapped. he wondered if $500 each was fair. i thought to myself maybe a little more than they were worth? probably the headlight alone is worth the $500. i already have 3 regulars, and probably will never have time to get either one fixed up. but, i also don't want them scrapped. i haven't actually seen them yet.
what do you think?

I guess I would go look. Yes, a factory headlight would be a valuable extra. Especially if it has a an inline generator.

If you can part with some money it wouldnt be bad to get them or if you can find someone to go into with. I know I paid 450. for that Mc cormick Deering orchard I have engine is free no spark, dont see why it wouldnt run clutch is stuck.
If it was me and it was presented to me I would do the bundle thing for maybe 700-1000 long as I didnt ofend anyone.
Just my 2 cents :wink:
