You just basically described too many that are in the tractor business. They usually start out doing the right things, but somewhere along the way they get it in their crazy head that MONEY is the only thing that is important. And it is always their money, your's does not matter. Funny how that works.
I have held back a story about a 730D ES that was up for sale by a guy that is well liked and runs several auctions a year in Western Georgia. I talked to him several times on the phone before he convinced me to make the trip. I asked that he not start it until I get there. Surprize, I get there and it was hot from running. All I can say is that he gave me answers that were very obvious lies. For instance, I wanted to check the oil. He said, "no need, I just checked it and it is full." I pulled the dip stick anyway and it was very milky. He looked at me, and said, "they all do that when they sit outside, they get a little mositure in the oil, but it clears up when it gets hot." (funny, the engine WAS hot)
The clutch shuttered, he said "all it needs is a little grease", the power steering pulled to one side, he said, "it just needs a little fluid". It had white puffs out of the exhaust, he said "they all do that, it is a diesel". I think you can see that if I had recorded his answers, no one would go near his place.
Oh well, if he can live with those lies, more power to him.
He was little miffed that I did not buy the tractor. Now that part was truly funny, like it was all about him.
