If what he says in the ad is true, then this is a huge bargain. These often sell for $1000.00 MORE.
I have offered to buy on spot. Waiting to hear back.

No word by phone, E mail. I would never get a deal like this, looks like I am out of luck.............. :thumbdown:

OK Tom bring out the cryin' baby!



Because I'm so happy I'm cryin!

It took three days to make contact with the seller. I spoke with him at 3:00PM today and bought it at 5:00PM. :clap:
Never thought I would get a deal like this, especially here on Long Island. I see maybe 1 or 2 CCI tractors for sale here a year, but here was a FEL. :shock:
I was nervous about it all week. Thanks to the encouragement by Billygoat I was persistent and didn't give up. The seller said I got him by chance among a flurry of E mails. One person e mailed and told him it was worth $2000. :twisted: He was an honest guy. I said are you still going to go with the $1250 he said yes what would I do raise the price, no. So she cranked up. Couple of issues, no air filter (not crazy about that) and she's leaking hydraulic fluid which I'll take care of. Oh here is the model number 646-74 and serial number is 9732149. So here we have another loader, purchased because of a post on the forum. Shows how important these posts are to the members. Jack if you didn't post this I would have never got it. I thank you very much for that. :usa: :usa: :usa: And Billygoat thanks for the support. :thumbsup: I am going to arrange transport Saturday morning. I am not putting this one in the back of my light pickup. I have a lot to learn about the loaders.

Congrats! I'm glad you hung in there,(but not as glad as you are I'm sure). That one heading South for the Summer? :trink:
BG For now,she'll be staying in NY. I have some imediate landscaping plans that includes moving some big landscaping rocks. Also I am thinking about pallet forks to bring pallets of firewood into the garage and some grading work at my moms. Eventually I want to redo my lawn down south at that point, I would then bring it down when I get a trailer.One of these days on my way down, we will have to get together for some breakfast and coffee maybe at Peggy's on Route 13? Thanks again for your support. :thumbsup:

Congrats Rich. You will sit around thinking up things to do with the loader.
Only a couple things to keep in mind as you get used to it.
Remember - your sitting on about 1500 lb, the bucket sticks out a bit, and the turning radius isn't tight.
Which means:
1) You might hit a tree
2) You may spill your coffee
3) The tree might die.

And if the tree dies you will need a backhoe to replace it! :sidelaugh:

Sounds good, Peggy's would work. Smith's across the road is good also. Had dinner at Stingray's last Sunday on our way back from N.C. Was thinking it would be cool to see ya' there.
BG Sounds good.Yes, Stingrays is awesome, love the soft shell crab imperial and corn pudding! Always try to go at least once when I am down there.
