I just want to make sure I don't lose any Massey/Snapper friends over this. lol I've got a chance to pick up an IH H with loader (one family owned since new) for a parts tractor price. It belongs to the family of a good friend who I worked with for years. Rough looking IH (I haven't gone to see yet) but runs-at least when they drove it into the shed. I'm guessing that was 3 - 5 years ago, the original owner passed about then. I'm thinking this would be mostly for tractor cruising but maybe light snow scooping and would like to pick up an old sickle bar down the road to mow one ditch I hate to weed wack. What do you think? Still friends? Hoping Daniel olcowhand continues his recovery as I might have a question or two for down the road. Just teasing my friend, you just get better.
