    Default Going to a Farm Machinery auction tomorrow

    Q1: What do I need that I might find for less than my self imposed limit of $150?

    Plow.. no.
    Middle buster.. no.
    Subsoiler... no.
    Harley rake.. no.
    Box blade... got one already...
    Tiller.. decent one would bust my limit.
    Rear blade... maybe
    Snow blower.. budget bust and not needed in this area
    chain harrow.. maybe could use it for a drag.
    Disk harrow.. no.
    Boom pole.. no.
    Bush hog.. no.
    Disk harrow.. no.
    Boom sprayer.. not buying one used
    Carryall.. got one.
    Water container for remote watering of new trees... yes

    Q2: What will I actually come home with?

    Check back tomorrow night at the same bat time, same bat channel. Holy Attachments Batman!

    Actually I'm not too optimistic about them having much in the way of sub-compact attachments. It's a consignment auction and I expect to see a lot of big boy agriculture stuff.

    Thats the same thing I find here too. On Craigslist I find the same thing unfortunately. I have gotten lucky a few times in the classifieds.

    With scrap at 300 dollars a ton I believe whatever you bring home on budget will weigh less than a 1/2 ton. It is making homemade projects alittle costly. Good Luck and may you find something useful.

    Well, it was as I suspected. Nothing much for a sub-compact. There was a Countyline 6' back blade that looked like brand new, but if I buy one, I would rather have one with the ability to tilt so it's a little more versatile.

    Iron suitcase weights, dirt scoop, roller pump, welding rod, log chains, angle iron.
    There is no "I" in team, but there is a "Me" if you want to jumble it up a bit...

    I never really understood the scoop. I suppose if you don't have a loader it might be handy. :shrug:
