OK OK my shopping habits:
New Idea 30a sickle mower $100 craigslist
Farmhand hay rake $200 by the side of the road in Northern Illinois, drug it home with my van.
8n was my maternal Grandfathers second tractor, he retired horses with it. My Grandma gave it to me before she passed away. It may be my most prized possession, it still smells of my grand parents farm.
The 860 was bought new by my paternal grandfather and my dad. My grandfather told my dad at that time "Its the biggest tractor he will ever need." He passed away in 1973 or 4 and my uncle Clarence kept it. Clarence passed away in 2008 and my uncle Dennis passed it to me. I love but it is jumpy compared to the 8n.
The IH wagon I found in the woods when we bought the farm the deck was rotted off. the wood came from a swimming pool deck.
The New Holland 275 came from the neighbors junk pile. It paid cash for it but he paid me all the money back last winter because he has a hernia and I took care of his farm all winter, why he recovered.
The S10 is my worn out former work truck.
