No ones throwing a hissyfit. I drive by the place all the time, the tractor has been sitting way out back for probably close to 12 years now. Its so overgrown you can only see it now in the winter. Not to mention the probably 100 other tractors laying around there.

I respect their decision too no matter if its sell it for way to much or keep it.

I dont know the situation the owner is in, they may be hard up for money and think nobody would ever want that. They think its just a piece of junk.

I also have had people tell me its junk and refuse to sell it because they think they are doing me a favor. There was a amphibious ATV at a friends house rotting away. He said it was his uncles and wouldn't ask his uncle if he would sell it because he was doing me a favor because it would be to much work to fix. His uncle loaded it up and paid $80 to dump it at a landfill.

I would have paid for it and hauled it away.

Same with the tractors, they call a scrap man they made a lot less then what I would have paid. If they haul it in themselves then they made less and went though the trouble of loading it up and hauling it off.

There was a old bulldozer forsale near me. Been out by the road for years. I offered the guy $1000. He said it was worth $2000 in scrap. He said if you dont buy it its going in for scrap. He had the guy working for him load it up on a lowboy and hauled it to the scrapper.

I looked up the weight of the machine and called the scrapper and gave them the weight and I said its good clean cast iron. $750 in scrap. You haul in a dirt covered dozer they probably would give your 530 or 400.

Guess what happened, they hauled the dozer back and put it out to the road again. I bet he figured I would come back but never did. He was probably paying that guy $12hr to load it up and haul it in, probably spend $300 in diesel fuel and what did he get? In the end it would have been cheaper to give me it for free.

Buy asking people if they want to sell a old tractor Im just offering to help them out. I offer them the opportunity to make money and never touch the thing. It their choice, I just let them know about the option. Do you flip out when someone hands you a business card.
