Nothing "Sucked" about that purchase! Some decent buys that day. I bought the D68U with blade, toolbar goodies etc. for about $2000.00;
What sucked was the CAT #1 pull grader that sold for $15.00 to some jokers that ended up scrapping it!

-when somebody tries grossing you out for your farming practice(s)....gross them out with where food actually comes from ! (hint..it's not Safeway etc...)
-i still have a vivid memory of my first dozer experience...my dad had a friend dig a couple small ponds...mid 70's....never seen that kinda power up close before (D7e)...even got in the operator seat for a bit...but had no clue how to really operate it...
and wow...i never smelt dirt, ground, the earth... like that before....it's etched in my little brain
Its all good. Actually a good family friend . Myself, I would have never said anything like that, but oh well. I had fun bringing out several crawlers out there to "work". As mentioned before, I call this parcel my "test track", as I really don't have anywhere else to give them a decent workout anymore (all orchards now). Add to the fact that several tractor tires and disc tires have been destroyed by foreign objects discarded along the fenceline from swell neighbors. Tracks to solve that problem...
I have memories of this place too. Our trusted custom farmer back in the days when I was a little kid, used to do the majority of the work. He had very nice Caterpillar tractors, even some TD-6 62 series IH crawlers just like the one I had recently purchased from SilverStreak. I even snagged (and bent) tw0 disk drags on the same Tangerine tree that he caught his Marvin orchard plane on! That dinky tree out lives us! Hah! Glad you have fond memories of your dad as well. JM
