and this was a good one. Guy across the street wants to clean up his yard. With that in mind he gave me a 4' brush hog and a 3 point hitch backhoe. He said the brush hog might not be good but the backhoe just needed hoses.
Embarrassingly good to be today!

If I remember right it's a Woods. I'll get right over tomorrow to get it. We have one now but this way I can take it to our house in NY and leave it there and only have to haul up the tractor.

Worse he can do is change his mind. And at 225 pounds I'm not missing a meal!

i know what ya mean, i never leave deals like that until the next day anymore, i clean it up right then and there before they have a chance to change their mind or someone tells them it,s worth a bunch of money, been there done that in the past ,no more take it while the taking is good. even if it turns out to be junk can always find a use for it .
