So you must stay busy if you feel like every post on an open forum needs to have your feedback. My post was an informative post only. I wasn't trying to sell anything through the forum; only informing those who might be interested to look at the ads, then reply through the ads section if they were interested in making a purchase. That's how it's supposed to work, and people who are concerned with saving these tractors are doing so. However, a couple of you seem to be wanting to control the market so you can convince people they have nothing but junk and steal it from them for scrap or less-than-scrap values, and as far as being too far gone, when it's crushed and hauled off NONE of it is available for use any longer; no axles, housings, transmissions, flywheels, flywheels covers, head, block, pistons, rods, sheet metal, clutch parts, PTO parts, steering parts, hubs, rims, generators, battery boxes, and the list goes on and on. Let me ask you this. Do you buy parts for $0.17 to $0.20 a pound? No you don't and you'll never be able to. I'm not a John Deere man, but I sure hate to see these tractors GONE FOREVER. I'm also trying to help save Farmall, Allis Chalmers, Case, Massey, Ford, Ferguson, even helped save part of a Kubota a few weeks back. By more of these getting crushed, used parts and new parts just get more and more expensive which will drive up the value of good running tractors only to some point in time at which people begin to view ALL of these historic tractors as obsolete for use and/or too expensive for very many people to enjoy. The reason I don't like your reply is that it contained absolutely NO USEFUL INFORMATION for anyone on either side of this situation; a seller willing to take less than what he can sell them for scrap simply because he hates to crush them, and any party interested in saving them from being crushed and gone forever simply because they actually understand that at that point they're truly too far gone.
