    I liked the marketplace for the most part but I am done with it there . My biggest gripe with the marketplace is nobody reads the add and follows directions. I don't have messenger and won't get it after having issues with it using all my battery up. Top of my add said call or text me as I don't have messenger ..... They still message me on messenger . Only way I can see it was to look at my adds and navigate to the message that way . Very frustrating to say the least

    I look at the marketplace occasionally even though I don't belong to Facebook. I can still see majority of the stuff, and I know exactly what you're talking about when the ad is fully descriptive and directions for inquiring about it. Theirs either a bunch of stupid people in the world, or they don't follow directions. These types of idiots i assume are the first to call or drive to the dealership and ask questions INSTEAD of opening up the @#$& operators manual and figuring it out for themselves. I had something listed on Craigslist once and said will not respond to emails. What's a couple clown's do? Send me a email asking for my phone number. My phone number was in one of the pictures I had in the ad. I thought ya know what if you're that dense and can't see the picture with the phone number or follow my directions that I will not respond to emails, I'm not responding to you. And I didn't.

    Can I get in on this with our 510 drill? (And ‘67 ford) 



    You drilling a companion crop first and then running the seeder across probably? One of those brillion seeders sure would be nice to have. Hard to find used around here and new is just crazy expensive, like everything else.

  3. A Deere salesman told me seeding equipment has good offering's that can be added for doing no till. There's no reason to be buying expensive VT tools. And he sells VT tools.

    What happened the last time was that some of the BTO's and wanna be BTO's forward contracted new crop at big dollars, then ran cash rent sky high to pick up more land. They then milked the residual fertilizer for a year. When prices came down they re-figured cash rent so they could keep the land, or just walked away and let somebody else apply build it back up.

    Had a local back in '13 have a ad on Craigslist saying. Farm ground 300.00 in the title. Then in the comments said family farm looking to expand and how good they'll treat the land and this and that bait tactics. I'm sure you will be seeing stuff like that again

  5. Been looking myself since December with no luck. Called the tire guy, Anderson Tractor, etc. All said guys run them till their shot. Tractor I'm needing them for won't do any ground working. Not going to buy a new set of especially radials for it. Do know where there's 4 matching Firestone S.A.T.s with around 50% tread, but their attached to a rough 4586 and the tractor has to go along with the tires. Don't believe that option will materialize here

    We traded the 335tt weed transplanter for a 345 disk that kills them

    I had a 330. Top picture. Got replaced with a 345 too 3 years ago. Bottom picture. Don't use a disk regularly, but when I need too, this sucker does a good job and goes in the ground. Just got tired of wore out disks, and this one will last my farming career.

  7. Have owned 3 different ones over the years. Have a Polaroid of the first one at Mom's. The nice one pictured I bought off Everett's sale in '96 or '97. Should have kept my hand down at the auction. It just needed to go to the salvage yard. Red Power one left a few years ago to Zanesville Ohio. Don't plan on owning another again. 15s had hard lives for the most part.

  8. Another note I think alot of dealership's are really going to loose big money during this time because of lack of inventory. Some has to do with the pandemic. Some because of demand. Some because of being too conservative ordering whole goods. Dealership's never really saw this coming either. Now nobody is willing to do transfer's because of tight supplies. I've heard of salesman getting into it fighting over a piece of machinery to sell even. Lol! There's some multi store dealership's around that have practically no new inventory anymore and we're not 6 months into the year yet. The one has a too conservative individual who's in charge of ordering whole goods. Didn't order near enough for a average year, let alone this year. Don't really think he wants the job, just kinda got it gave to him. He's a good salesman and I think he would rather just sell equipment  That's really going to effect their bottom line this year with lack of inventory.

  9. Just remember the aftermath from 2012. Should pretty much sum it up. Hopefully this time, that's kinda fresh in people's minds yet. When they we're preaching back then corn will never get below 5 dollars again, we all found out, O yes it will. And some learned a hard lesson. Everyone should always remember farming has more bad times than good. Be wise with your decisions during this time.

  10. Used to have them. Both 1973s at both bought off County Rd 10 in Logan county but different locations. Both were 4800 houred tractors i think were correct. One with no fenders was bought non running at a estate sale. Got sold non running to a guy around Marion. The one with fenders and duals on, came from a 90 year old gentleman. I probably should have kept it. A good detail person could've got that one to shine in its original paint. But I just can't keep everything. Traded it in on a disk in 2016.

  11. If the small disk has anyplace to set some weight on, stones, cast iron weights, whatever is handy, I'd try that before the big one. Think you'll get better results. Bigger disk is a half a load for a M to pull in transport position, let alone in the ground.

  12. Our township had a 175 on a ditch mower probably 10 years. It was a '80 they bought it new. Never saw it stranded along the side of the road. Lol. That's the only one I've ever seen to this day in person. If a 175 is half as good as the 185s were, I'd buy it. That one has a nice grill yet and what looks like the original offset muffler yet.

    Looks like $800 to me I could be wrong.

    What the deal with the Aluminum frame? 

    Was that done to meet some weight restriction?

    That brings the scrap price up some.




    I was just predicting what it might bring. Probably a little high

    was at 2 auctions the last 2 saturdays, one by tomah wis, an 856 with turbo, probably about 9 k for hours went for 12k, then a black stripe 1066 with a hiniker type cab on, was at 14 k when i was leaving, a little 200 i remember at 2700. then this saturday, there was a schindler auction by loyal wis, had to be scrappers dream, there was a 706 with the 282, annoucemant said head gasket and t a was out, but it had the updated shifting, but was rough, about 1900, seemed about right, next was a 1466, looked very rough, but was running, open station, told a guy , 3700, well started at 6k and sold for 8k, then next was a 1566 black stripe, with cab, very rough, cab looked terrible, needed to jump starter to get it running, but did have a great set of tires, 9k, then i was leaving a 6388, sold for a bit over 9 k, point being is that there must be a lot of stimulus money floating around was the comments being made

    You have to wonder what some people are thinking. Seems like now, if you want top dollar, sell it on a auction because they sure don't want to pay fair asking prices if you have something listed for sale.
