Ah, competition for Bontai Joe.............and me aswell but i am far enough away from you so my weekend forays won't interfere with your pursuit of treasures. Cheap is good, free is better. Most of what I do on the side hinges on free trash I collect. SOme I fic and use, other stuff just gets torn apart and parts used for other odds and ends, and when I finally get rid of an item it really is indeed trash, and only a scrap dealer would consider it or more than likely a landfill would suit what I get rid of best.

Chris,

Start visiting your tractor dealers and let them know you're looking for "bone-yard" stuff. The season is underway and there are people who don't want their old stuff and buy new. The delivery guy is also a good source.

I got a late '90s Craftsman tractor in really good shape, just smokes. I plan on repairing this summer. The driver got it from a customer he delivered a now tractor to, but had too many other projects in his garage. Price? Free.

Next I got a JD170 from the "bone-yard" at the local dealer. Put air in the tires, charged the battery, changed the gas, sprayed starter fluid into the carb and she fired up. I use it now for mowing till I get the deck back on my "main tractor". The 170 will be my "puller". Price? $45, delivered, with 2 front wheel weights.

Good luck,

Greg

P.S. I live east of Redmond.

HEy Terminator, I live even closer to you then Greg, I live over by the Skagit Casino and a mile from Skagit Speedway just off Old Highway 99. If I get anymore stuff my better half will ring my neck so I'll let you know or I grab and go and then post the latest find for you and then you can pick it up from me or we can met halfway in Bellingham someplace. cruisin

I just got a free computer monitor yesterday. My old monitor (also free) was flickering and jumping and ready to go. I drove by a yard sale that was winding down and there was 3 tables of stuff that didn't sell and clearly labeled free, so I took the monitor, a vase for the wife and some big Tupperware type thing. Heck, I stopped once on a 6 lane Interstate highway to pick up a roll of aluminum flashing that fell off someone's truck. Findind aluminum is like finding money$$$!

Sorry, guys...finders..keepers!

I put a lot of work into tearing it down completely, sanding, wire brushing, and painting it. Looks great now and hauls well. It has a soft/solid tire that looks almost new. Sure beats my old rusted beater.

At first I felt sorry for the guy that lost it. Then I got to thinking he was an idiot for not securing it to his truck. If it had come off and hit a car behind it he could have caused a bad accident with injuries or death... Maybe he'll be more careful, even for just economical reasons (cost of a new wheelbarrow).

Greg

I am also looking for a blow up replica of the orginal John Deer logo that will fit on a door nicely. Does anyone have such a thing? And I don't want to pay anything for it:D

PS: I am allways looking for free stuff.:D

That looks like the wheelbarrow I tossed. Good, I'm glad someone is giving it a good home. I'm sure my new Johnny Bucket Jr will be an adequate replacement. Getting old.

I doubt many of us have "free spirited" wives so that is gonna have to be an "outside contractor" :D . I was just joshing you about them but I would imagine the if you had some hot looking babes on tractors, you could sell them pretty good. Just look at that oriental guy who can't sing worth a crap but has the SUPER hot dancing babes that has been on TV lately. :lmao: :spinsmile
