    I dont know of any in your area but I have got a lot of nice attachments here in WV at auctions. I have bought several over the years for far cheaper than I could find them elsewhere.

    I've been to about a dozen equipment auctions that sold attachments after the equipment was sold. In every case, I've never seen a deal worth buying. I've seen brand new, still strapped to the pallet items sell for more then they do brand new from the dealer, and I've seen beat up stuff sell for almost new prices. It doesn't make any sense to me, but I've been told that some people get into the competition of it and forget that you can look up the price of anything online with your smart phone.

    I've found my best deals on Craigslist. You just have to be quick, because you are not the only one looking.
