Recommended Posts

So A to B would be 1000 for tractors and 400ish for travel, stay a night and eat. 

1400 total.

The plan is to get away with the wife for a couple days and bring all this home...

 

The xi snowblower goes to my dad for his 520xi. And I want the 520xi tractor and mower. 

 

I think the 2 stage on a 520xi will handle similar to my brothers 416h with 2 stage. It's not easy to steer but I think we are used to it. 

 

I'll continue to use my 416h snowblower in winter. 

 

The other tractors are just a bonus really. 

 

I bought a 16-38 (I think that was the model) for $50 and cleaned the carb and sold it for $450 in two days. Don't discount it.

I have made many trips out of state to get  a :wh: but there was also an ulterior motive. My Dad is in his 80's and it gives us some road trips to remember. I went on one rustlin up to Missouri last year without him and it wasn't the same. Didn't even stay the night. 15 hours round trip.  He still talks about the trips from time to time asking if I finished this one or that one. @elliot ness was a real hoot for us both to meet.  I may have to sell my D Loader and deliver it so we can have another road trip....

You can't go wrong at a grand.

Haha!

 

One really cool thing was the seller says since I'm the first caller, im first in line. 

I thought that was nice of him since it takes a lot of planning to make a big deal like this work. (For me anyhow)

After talking to him for several (4 or 5) 10 or 15 min calls,  we worked out a pick up date. 

 

Pictures will come once the deal is done.

This is a cash deal.

I talked to the seller again tonight and claims the 269h mowing deck "might" fit the 520xi. I thought the 520xi had a deck. Little disappointed there. 

Still, the trip is planned for 2 weeks from now.

No need to adjust the price.  You still did great!

I don't think it will.

Keep us posted on how the lot looks! Still looks like a good deal.  I have a 312-8 that I occasionally think about replacing with a 312H if you don't have plans for the one you get.

Will do @AndyK149

I have no idea what I'll end up doing with the "other" tractors. I'm planning on keeping the 520xi and 2 stage blower.

 

My dielema,

I'm looking for a mowing deck for the xi.

 

But I already have 2 416 mowers and one with a blower to get the job done. 

 

Good problem i guess.

Also the 269h has a bagger so I wouldn't use that deck on the 520xi either way. (I Highly doubt that it would fit without major changes)

LONG STORY short.

I can't get this load of tractors now. 

 

My wife is having surgery soon and I can't justify going out of town alone and being away. It just wouldn't be right. 

Thanks Cory  

I contacted the seller but haven't heard back yet.

Tractors are worth whatever someone will pay......sometimes you have to sit on stuff a long time
