"Common Sense".....Huh.......????

That AC was WITH a Bush Hog, Plow, and something else.......and HERE, a 45 has NEVER dropped below $1,200.oo, if in good shape, with a plow....NOT JUNK--GOOD SHAPE......as in FIELD-READY... Seems like I have found a few fellas with a "Tractor Pulling Attitude".....Think ya know it all--but don't know much...... Same attitude exists with a Truck driver who has been on the Road for 5 Years....He thinks he has ALL the answers, and is ready to run everyone else off the road... Find an "Old Pro", and the attitude is Much Different..... Are you "Amatures", or merely immature "Kids"..???

I suppose this comment is aimed at me, so I will answer it. First of all, I was taking the original poster at his word as I was obviously not there. It also ought to be pretty obvious I was speaking more hypothetically than adressing this particular situation. I guess if you just want to ignore the substance of what I said and seize on one aspect of the post to beat me up about I would have to wonder who thinks they know it all there, pardner. Ditto on suggesting calling people immature, or suggesting they don't know much about anything based on one post made on the internet. Maybe if you paid attention to the meat of what I was saying, you would see that I apparently agree more with your point of view than that of the original post. If you did a search on my name here and on the Allis Forum, you would see that I have said alot more about folks complaining about tractors not being worth what they really than the other way around. As a matter of fact, I posted something along this line yesterday on the Ford board here. I don't think it is a good idea to ask people to refrain from talking about what certain tractors are worth. It is up to the person asking to determine the veracity of any suggestion, if it applies to their area, condition of tractor, etc. I contend this is what is a lack of common sense, not paying $1600 for a WD which would not be a big price in my area, either. It could have just as easily went the other way, preventing the dreaded yuppie from running up the bid on some tractor he thought was worth alot more than what it was. A grand or two probably wouldn't seem like a lot of money for a piece of iron like a WD to the uninformed especially someone with deep pockets. Case in point is the $25,000 CA. Maybe if that guy would have went to the trouble to inform himself by asking here before he bid, the tractor may have went for a reasonable or more reasonable price. One thing that did occur to me after I made my post yesterday is why the so called yuppie didn't buy the second tractor that was supposedly in better shape and went for alot less.

After a re-read of my original post, I would say it was not obvious I was speaking hypothetically. I simply took for granted that the original poster's assessment that the tractor was way over priced was true. I would have no way of knowing otherwise. I guess if that is what is what offended you, I am sorry for that. I will still stand by everything else, however.
