I think Cody is probably a pretty nice guy and all & good to talk to on the phone for sure, but he also doesn't represent his product well at all. I am going to assume he isn't purposely misrepresenting product because I don't think he's that kind of guy, but he definitely doesn't check his tractors over. Bought what was supposed to be a 1206 Farmall tractor that needed injector and fuel pump work and that the parts would come with. First off this tractor is missing parts in general and what he sent for parts were off a 560, completely different and smaller model not even in the same generation. To boot, the motor is stuck. Cody argues this, and that it turned over for him, but a certified Case tech claims this hasn't turned over for a while since there is rust at the top of the cylinder walls.
From what I've read for reviews on Cody as a seller, as expected he offered my money back if I ship it back down to TN, now I'm out $2,500 in freight and feel like that's just part of the game being played here. You know that feeling of being excited when something new to the farm is delivered, and then the feeling in your gut and the red faced embarrassment when it's nothing like you were expecting...
This is not meant to be a personal attack at all; I just want buyers to know what they should be expecting.

I just bought an 806 IH off of Cody last week. It was just as he said it was. I'll do business with the young man again.

Audience and Cody,
First, this is buyer/seller feedback and what I was hoping to gain by this is Cody (and everyone else who wants to expand their customer base through internet sales) represents his product fully and stands good on his word.

That being said, I forgot to give Cody one other compliment in my post, he helped load the tractor when the trucker got there. From what I am told not everyone does this and I commend you as such; good work and thank you.

I do not have any experience posting on public forums so what is used as a screen name is confusing to me. All I know is the first three names I tried did not work and this one did. I feel that Cody posting his name and number means very little as far as credibility. He is the seller here and it"s his job to deliver on what he puts his name and reputation on. I am the buyer, as far as that goes all I need to do is send prompt and correct payment; Cody would agree that this is a non-issue.

Cody said to send it back because he had a lot of calls on it and people telling him it was too cheap (as he had listed it). From what I"ve read about Cody on other posts here, he will usually accept return on an item, and I"m not saying that he should have to pay for the shipping, but that still costs real dollars. Most sellers in this the car/tractor/general collector world would work with a guy when what terms and conditions something is bought/sold under is not what is delivered.
I would love to get the $4500 plus the $1250 I ended up paying for shipping (one way) out of the tractor if anyone out there thinks this is still a great deal. I will eat the cost of the repair man"s bill and chalk this up as a learning experience.

I was adamant in my first post that Cody was not purposely lying or being deceitful by sending me a tractor that was stuck and had the wrong parts to go with it. I feel that these issues were sincerely overlooked since being a tractor jockey and puller, one would know the difference between 560 parts and 1206 parts. I"m giving credit for not purposely sending the tractor this way; the opposite, and knowingly sending it this way would be worse. For faith in the people of this hobby/business I do not want to believe the latter is the case. That being said, we both know there is no basis for anyone else having trouble with me. Keep it to the facts. For Cody"s sake and as a gesture of good will in hopes of ceased unfounded personal attacks, I am not going to bring up the details about why there was a bid rescinded, but if it keeps up I will. I have written a check to only one other person on this site and his advice was not to get into arguments with people who lie on a public forum because, "they lie, and they are going to be better at convincing others than you are".

I am sorry it has come to this and want everyone to enjoy this hobby as much as I did. I agree that looking at tractors in person is the way to go, but if we can maintain credibility on these sites, we can all enjoy a little bit further reach. It is always best to ask many questions to cover your bases, if the seller cannot answer, you must take that as it is. This does not necessarily mean someone is lying about their product, the seller may not know the answer. There will always be risk in this business, but all we have is our word. We are all looking for that diamond in the rough and there are still a few to be found out there. We take these battles one at a time and sometimes we get lucky and sometimes we get burned. Like I said, anyone looking to buy this tractor can take it at a loss from me and I will go on with my life.
Thank you.

Hey Tyler do you want to sell that 1206? I looked at it when it was sitting @ Cody's place. It is a very clean western tractor. I asked him about it but he said it was sold. I do know it wasn't stuck cause I wiggled it with the fan. Ole Cody is a good dude, I've bought 5 or 6 from him over the years & I would had bought this 1206 on the spot if you hadn't beat me too it. You got a deal so stop whining dude.

Hey Jared, this is Drew. Tyler never bought the tractor, I did. If you would like the tractor, you are more than welcome to come take a look & pick it up and take it home at a loss for me.

I have bought many things site unseen.Trucks, tractors, balers,parts. Whenever you buy something without taking the time to drive and see it you are going to the cosino. Sometimes you roll a six, sometime you roll snake eyes. NEVER buy something you havent looked at unless you are willing to accept it may not be to your standards. If you were able to spend $4500.00 on a tractor, $2500.00 on shipping I think you could have spent a few hundred to go look at it, or send down a hired man. If Cody puts his name and number on here he must feel he treats most people right. Using his real name makes it impossible to hide in todays world. Treat someone bad they might show up at your house.

Normally do not get in on these things and let me say right up front I am 100 miles west here in Tennessee. Been in the farm/ag business better part of 50 years. Seen a lot come and go. Cody is a hard working very busy young man. I have bought from him and a rule he tells it like it is. Now as for the engine being locked he may have not know. As I say he does a lot tractors and just plain may have missed it. Overall he has a better reputation around the auctions and jockies around here than most. Sorry you feel mistreated but again this guy is pretty straight shooting.

Cody just by putting your name and number gives you credibility.A $4500 1206 would be as cheap as I have seen as they are popular.Hard to please everyone and its to bad people can write most anything and not sign their name and some people will believe it.

No it doesn't. I have no idea who is wrong and who is right, but just putting your name and number doesn't mean a thing. If I were you, I wouldn't be so quick to jump into the middle of a squabble and take sides. Just sayin'. No dog in this fight at all, but don't just take sides with whoever gives the best reply on any Feedback. Bob

Bob 1958 advice taken I just think it should be a private matter and should be between them not written on internet.

I Agree that this matter is between Myself & Drew32, Tyler Sorenson, His Dad, Neighbor or whomever took time out of their busy day to start this post. Everyone is entitled to their opinions but it is so easy to hide behind a computer screen these day while pointing fingers & making false claims about what is & what isn't. Funny thing is that over the past couple days I've had 2 phone calls from others telling me that the these guys tried the same stunt with them. I was totally upfront with this guys & here I am having to defend myself & reputation against someone who is to cowardly to take credit for their claims.

And I never offered your money back when we spoke today..... All you wanted was for me to send you some money back & you keep the tractor. Sounds like a great deal...... First $2500 trucking & now you add to the conversation. I have an app on my phone that records conversations. I will be more than happy to post our phone call if you can't remember what was said. This forum is a great tool, but when people post stuff under fake names & make up the story as they go, it is nothing more than a tabloid.

Who is Drew32? I sold this tractor to Tyler Sorenson from South Dakota. If your gonna drag my name thru the mud, atleast sign your name!!

Second, I advertised the tractor for what it is, the pump you got is the one that came with it.

Where did you spend $2500 on trucking? The Trucker told me he was getting $900 & whomever I spoke to today said you paid $1300 to the broker. Someone can't tell the truth.

You bought a $4500 1206 IH after I had it listed for 15 minutes. I told you exactly what it was I Tyler acknowledged he understood it was a non-running tractor that I knew nothing about. If it wasn't a deal, then why did I have over 50 phone calls on it?

This guy has a history of overloading his wagon, he made me an offer of $18,000 on a tractor then when I agreed to sell it to him, he went to backing up. Sounds like they are just sore because I refused to sell them anything else after that incident.

Over the years, I have found if you deal with enough people, you will always find one or two that you can't please no matter what. I have many, many customers & friends all over the world. I didn't gain them by screwing them over......

That's the feeling I got from talking to him,he didn't like to answer questions,or maybe didn't know.After a couple calls he would just say it was sold.

Hey Mike,

I'm not sure what I spoke to you about, but if I told you something was sold.....its sold. Nothing to hide there. The fact is, when I post something to sell, I try my best to put everything in the ad that may answer someone's questions before they call. Its not uncommon for me field 30-50 calls a day & alot of them ask the same questions that are answered in the ads. Also, I answer numerous calls form people who have no intentions of buying anything when they call. This can get very aggrivating thruout the day. If I was short with you for no apparent reason,...I apologize.
