Well I'm just going to say that ASKING and GETTING are two different animals. With the loader, blade, and mower though I would probably drive an hour to go have a look at it and run a number by him! :)
Want to pick that up and haul it over this way for me? I'll meet you at RPRU! Lot of good tractors over your way. That big lake really gets in the way of a lot of good deals though.
