My M3 and 3 heads might have been between $14-15,000. Was very local and in good shape brought it home and was combining the next day. If that helps any. This time of year might have been a little cheaper?

I'm a little too far from you, or you could tour my Gleaner museum! Man I gotta clean out around here.....

Well, that went south in a quickie. The F2 I was wanting to look at dropped off Craigslist before I could get a time scheduled. Had a couple others I was going to put on the circuit. One was an M2 but the guy tells me it is a gear tranny and not many bells and whistles for the asking price. The other was not much from the description so trip cancelled for now. Looking in a different direction now. Have a couple nice F2's but one of those will not return calls and does not take down his ad. Third is an L2 I found at a dealer. Sounds pretty nice. All are in the same general area. Guess I could run over there and look at just the two. It's only money and time.

I have been doing this for two years now. First a bigger tractor. Then tillage and planting equipment. Now harvesting and storage. Sounds like fun but after a while....

It's all fun looking, I've been farming for 35 yrs and everytime I think I've got my machinery needs met seems like there's another piece I'd like to purchase as a replacement or totally new. My wife and I had been looking for a decent grain truck for over a year thought they were all too high when we ran across a sweet deal @ a auction last fall picked it up then we'd been looking for a bigger flex platform and head trailer well that's done and in the shed. So you'd think I'd spent enough and should be happy but no I've decided it's time to get rid of both of my ancient skid loaders that run very well and get 1 really nice late model one, will it never end. LOL

Thank you! I am sure there will be good days and bad days. Whilst accumulating all this equipment to diversify from "all hay" I have run into a lot of real characters. I have also been upgrading my hay equipment a little along the way so the equipment search is pretty much a daily routine now. Good day is when I finally convince that "hold out" that his 30 year old, nearly worn out jewel is only worth 2/3 of what he wants for it. Bad days usually end up with a comment like "If I caint get what I want fer it I'll just let her sit thar".

Most good days are when no one bids against me at the auctions. Da hail with Craigslist!
