Been out of the loop for awhile. I have been too busy searching for a new job after 11 years with the company. My collecting and hobby has come to a bit of a halt.
However it has not stopped me from looking.

Saw this on CL, but I am a day late and a thousand short. It was sold yesteday.
I thought this would make for some good conversation. I was hoping Rich (INtrouble) picked it up.

Looks like a 180??

Damn, I must have still had a cashed copy (pun intended)






His asking price was a grand, and it had a 16 or 18 HP Briggs on it. I had sent him an email asking what he actually got for it, still waiting to hear back.

Good Luck with Job search...stick around. Pipe up when you can, just pop in some threads and give advice (its free) :). Plus it can help take your mind off all the 'stuff' going on around you. Plus you get to laff at dumbshit from time to time... :sidelaugh:

Finding the great deals is always fun, it is easy to peruse cl and find em...good way to pass time. Some of the guys have been doing it, makes for good conv amongst tractor types...ya you're still one of us!

My wife put in 10 applications a wk for over a year...before she got an interview...So, keep that in mind and dig in.

What kind of work do you do? Maybe one of us knows someone looking for those skills?
Thanks man, I hear ya. Better days are coming. I do deskside\helpdesk IT support in NYC.

Windows support? Mainframe? Network? Programming (languages)?

We (Chrysler/Jeep) may be lookin for an additional bean...although it won't match NYC pay.
Windows support, networking, backups, Images, asset tracking, etc. No MF or programming.

I understand what you are going through. I lost my finance job in December. Looking for a job is completely different than 11 years ago. You have to do a lot of networking in this market. My state offers a free one week class on resume writing and interviewing which I found very helpful.

I really enjoy this forum. It takes the monotony out of job searching all day. I have been working on inexpensive repairs and upgrades on my 446 which gets my mind off things.

Good Luck in your job search. :fingerscrossed:

Yes it is thin out there. But lets get back on topic :sidelaugh:

What about that tractor? Was that thing worth a grand? I just love the round fenders. Will make a nice trailer queen for sure.

That is a good question. 180s are pretty hard to find. Because the original engine was gone, I would say the price was high. Since the battery was now attached to the rear of the tractor I have to wonder what modifications were done under the hood. The more mods that were done the more the value would decrease.

The good part is that the sheet metal looks clean and straight. The dash looks good and the original seat is there. Any damage that was done could be reversed. And a replacement engine is not hard to find.

NutCase2 Very sorry to hear of the job loss. I hope things get better for you and you find something quickly.
Thanks for keeping me in mind. It's very rare to see a CCI GT for sale here on Long Island. I missed this one completely. That's why I think its good that these ads are posted on the site, see post "Site Name Change" debate. Looks like the price was very high, however.
In any case, we enjoy your presence on the site, hope you can spend some time, may be good to get your mind off things.
:222: :446: Best Regards, Rich
PS I went to NYC yesterday, I'll try to do a post on my suburban country boy adventure in Off Topic.
