Yeah, the guy from Craigslist actually did me a favor by not taking my offer...
You see my plan is:
1) Buy Used Trailer on Craigslist (Kind of failed on the Used part).
2) Buy User Tractor on Craigslist.
3) Use Trailer to get the Tractor.
4) clean up the driveway!
So practical don't you think?
But seriously, a tractor will come in handy for cleaning up the brush, enlarging the firebreak, and doing some major landscaping projects we have scheduled.
The trailer will come in handy for moving stuff like the chevy and the tractor, and for hauling major amounts of brush and stuff away. Perhaps we'll even use it to go collect some of our own firewood.
So The guy on CL did me a favor by staying firm. For only 10 more 100$ bills, I got a brand new trailer that should work out pretty well.
It'll carry 5300 pounds, which is a few thousand more than the 46' Chevy weighs and the class of compact utility tractor I'm looking at.
And It all works out even better than that. Sharon said she's going to buy it for my Christmas present
I don't care what you guys say about her, she's a damn fine woman...
Now if anyone has any tips on what kind of hold downs to get to secure the car and/or tractor to the trailer, I'm listening...
