I received a call today and it was hard to understand what the man was talking about. Another voice came on the line and said that man asked if I was the fella that had called Mr. Witt (the tractor’s owner) on Sunday. (Mrs. Witt had told me on Sunday that her husband had suffered a stroke a few years back and didn’t understand conversations very well anymore. That is why I had talked to her that day.) I told the man that I was the one who called and he asked if I was the one trying to sell him a car. I said “No” and I told him it was about the tractor behind the house. I could hear the guy tell Mr. Witt that I had called about renting the house. I cut in and said no I was calling about the tractor behind the house, putting a little more emphasis on it. Now the fellow tells him I was calling about “fixing the crack behind the house”. I stopped him again and with a little stronger voice I said I was interested in the “tractor” behind the house. Repeating that Mrs. Witt had said she would get back with me on a price.

This time he under stood, so I heard him ask Mr. Witt if he wanted to sell his tractor. I could hear Mr. Witt say he did, so I asked how much. The friend asked how much he wanted and I could hear 75, but the rest was muffled. His friend got back on the phone and said Mr. Witt would take $7500.00 for it.

I said we may be talking about a different tractor. The friend said he would have Mrs. Witt call when she got home. I thought that was a good idea. I'm sure that in Mr. Witt's mind that is a fair price.

I now have my doubts about this one making it to the barnyard.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Bill,
I would not have thought you would give up that easy. I am sure there is just an extra zero there perhaps? Don't you have that cub mechanism working on persuading the owners too? :roll:

Seems a bit high, Bill. However, a friend told me of a cub which an acquaintance had. It had not run in many years as the electrical system was damaged from trying to start the six volt system off of a twelve volt battery. It had been moved into a shed. The shed roof had a hole positioned so that water dripped down on the fuel tank each time it rained. Over the years, a good sized hole had rusted in the top of the tank. His asking price was $2200 and he was convinced that this was a reasonable price. At that price, he probably still has it. Dan

At DSCF 1 last year, a lady came up and asked how she could tell what year it was. I told her and she asked if I would come by and look at hers that she had in the barn. RELUCTANTLY I agreed to come by and look at it. It was a mess. Had been there for years ???? all tires flat, had a wire for a choke cable. The only redeemable factor was it had almost a brand new Woods 59 mower. I asked her the price she would take for it. She said 2500. i called her later and asked about just the mower. No dice, it all had to go together. it was still 2500. it's still in her barn.

just to clarify.....

the W4 and W6 series used the same cast front wheel hubs and hense the same front weights as the A,B,C,H,M etc. some orchards used different front wheel hubs (solid)
