Spreader looks really straight is it PTO of electric? You can find some great deals at Auctions and you can also watch people pay Retail for used. But it's always cheep entertainment. Brought my 7 and 10 year old to there first one a few weeks ago and they keep asking me what the auctioneer was saying. They both thought he keep saying Bananas banana. I did buy a 300 gallon plastic tank with aluminum frame (going to be used on a trailer to water my apple trees) for $65.00 not a scratch on the thing.
Great find bigmike. Most auctions around us aren't worth going to because folks get stupid and pay 90% of new retail for items that are half wore out or beat up. Once you pay that much and have to put money into the item, you have more in it than buying new. Idiots get caught up in the moment and don't use their heads.
I used to like going all the time with my uncles who used to farm, but I got sick of going to an auction and wasting whole days just to watch folks pay next to retail for used goods. I still make it to the occasional auction, especially if it is during the week(not as many idiots in the crowd) and they have guns.
That's a great thought, I will have to inquire about doing that myself next time. Thanks, mike. The thing is most of our auctions want you to pay as soon as the auction ends or sooner, do they call you or something if you win?
I'll have to try the absentee bid sometime. Auctions have never really been my thing. Going for one item in the line up and have to be there for 3 wagon loads of junk to be sold off. It took me 3 auctions before I was able to get my cultipacker.
