    well..........  Dealer News....  

    necessary evil,   PC requirement of GO BIG or get out

    our CE is somewhere between 12-16 units now, with over $50m in non delivered solds NOT paying the nut.

    soybean electric issues and ultra scarce parts.

    VPS travels about 9K a month now and fiat NA had no offerings on the lease

  2. they are all the identical CHINA #$%^$*%&*()^&*(

    depends on amount of QC root importer paid for that pallet ,and the $$$$$ markup of USA based scammer,(like a certain 1  with 10 different prices )$99-499)

    I picked up several for < $75 when second container arrived from a "reputable" dealer  no problems yet.

    dont see them in this round.

    scambay adds(incl) 30% + inflated shipping to that $30 so they leave china for $1-5

    $30-75 in QC  dont know...,I would pay a little more from real dealer with 90-180 day warranty and then write off the $30-90

    Ih did have a fix that lasts 4-5 yrs and for 3x

  3. So to show how stupid ridiculous it is here...

    If you wait 18 mo for $21K you can get a new warrantied mill,just how you want.

    Ad was on cl and I was first to see at 16 hrs.

    always kept inside 400 original hrs new tires and $1k in WM service!

    35 yrs old figured it was photos/ worth + - $8K,from 50' already down to $6K

    2' $4500 at BEST,not a lick of original paint ,parts missing/rotted off engine from setting outdoors 90% of life,fragile early design... hard pass.

    2nd looker purchased + -  $16K   !!!!!  

    New starter model is just as good for $14K

  4. which ALL of this doesnt make sense.......some how it works with our $$$$$/ IRAS.

    "major" media has documented 10x      hedge funds BTOS, eliete etc etc  2K x foreigners .

    Are the ACTUAL reason for the run up $$$$ and scarcity of housing.

    Here we are plastered with tv/print ads  ,cash today ,close today, NO INSPECTIONS etc.

    and bidding wars 120-250% of ask.

    they have purchased blocks and WHOLE communities and then tell the govt the "new" rules.

    rent is 1.5-3x $ what buying would have cost.

    PC plan to make peasants live in script/company owned housing ,along with phase 5 of no cash/ script money so they can 150% tax both sides. 50% of govt venues and 75% > fees are NO CASH /CHECK

    There’s really nothing in there which has much weight or inertia moving at excessive speed. Also no gears run close to the case so if something broke it would have to fly through the case is not likely to jam up and push its way through... not saying in couldn’t happen but I think the design makes it unlikely that anything could exit... the castings are pretty thick also. Probably not an issue unless we put big traction to it and try to pull hard at which point I think the wheels would fail or the bronze worm wheel.

    That is why I called it a "wives tale" as never met the cripple with the claims,of items penetrating the case, maybe early model/over mod?

  6. if it bolts in a tractor then it is similar to the 504 version    there are 5-7 different blocks(mounting) and 2-3 heads

    simply a 135 ( 7+ options) sleeveless.

    otherwise follow the spec related to the part/s # in front of you

    If you have a blade and the machine is running you can cheat a bit by pushing up two parallel mounds and running the dozer up on them

     if dead a jack and 2 short ties work in the shop,or 2, 8' ties and some leaders under power (as every winter)

    really not much can be done under them,as 135 starters are top rear left crammed ,for short wrenchs and long extensions,well behind ANY accessories

  8. 6 as I suspected,some one is messing with parts they should stay out of.

    110% of scrap  $1500 if it operates 15 min flawlessly $2500 if 2 hrs with  ZERO issues,

    then it may run for years or could need $2k -10K next week.... parts are NLA $$$$$  ...but go buy a  new .and need NLA $$$$

  9. Exciting to say the least !

    not to throw mud on the fire,

    But I do recall a  (40 yrs ago)   oft mentioned ,old "wives" tail

    of farmers getting trans shrapnel  from over powered fordsons ( like FHV8) and the ALways stated  general use ,roll over backwards .

    If you are doing much "dragg in" maybe a pullers kevlar blanket and wheelies ?


    Play safe.

    Watched this sell while planting beans. Like new woodmizer LT40


    $65,000 + 15% buyers premium =$75,000




    But, if sawing was your part time business..... 75,000/$75hr =1000hrs/20 hrs/week =50 weeks.  Actually, rates may be closer to 100/hr now. 

    thats how the elite calculate. - $30hr for operator, + transport/site costs and $.25 bf for operating + repairs.

    And would need to be FULL time BUSINESS !!! of which 75% > have folded.

     a 40 would not hold up or keep up as a full time .bTOS go with the 70 and a lot of repairs/rebuild by 5k hrs.

    actually here its + - $85hr /base , $105 on site + blades ,damage ,help etc etc (3-8hr min etc)

    If all wasnt being exploited now that is a < > $46 K unit NEW, IF !!!! WM were to purchase used  $25-27 K

    3yr old - 20% (ink the check) - 8 % 3x     ..... $42K - $10K - $9600
