A good disc,yes,I agree,but lets be realistic. A CCA field cultivator,scrap price. And the chance of finding that one owner KBA or RWA disc off a 40 acre stone free farm,always kept inside,even at noon? I think we know that's not what he's been looking at. What's out there are old beat up junk that are going to take two to make one good one.

You know, this post brought up a point that gives me a pain I can't locate and it has to do with scrappers going to auctions. I know that all is fair in love and war but sometimes it's hard to pay what some of the scrap iron dealers give for old implements. And it is sad that a piece of equipment that could serve someone well as a useful addition to their lineup of implements is going to be cut up and sold for scrap. The scrapper has no use for the stuff he buys except to make a buck. And another thing, they don't care if a piece of equipments is rare and hard to come by. I tried to buy a disk at auction but was outbid by a scrapper. He will make about a 10% profit when he cuts up the disk. I would have to out bid him THEN put a lot of money into the disk to make it serviceable but at least the disk would still lived. I couldn't afford to outbid the scrapper AND put the money into the disk to fix it up.

I wish that scrappers could only come in after the fact and get the stuff that was indeed junk or beyond repair. To bad though, that just ain't the way the world works.

Oh my this equipment issue is going to be getting worse and worse. Scrap is a very small sum compared to what a new implement costs. This is going to hurt small farmers real bad. Costs are going to go up and up. There are many places int the world where people would nott know how to act if they had most of the machinery that gets cut up. Waste, Big time.
