That's the sort of thing that happens on MTF all too often but that's just my opinion. MTF is free to run their site whatever way they wish. I didn't see anything wrong in that thread that would have caused Ddogg to delete all those posts and then lock the thread. Hard to say what truly happened and the Mods are unlikely to ever state why.eBoyDog said:I think that one was discussed some other place and while I don't know what happened but a mod deleted some of the messages and closed the tread. :headscratcher:
Not seeing what happened but I have this feeling that the seller is member of that place and raised objections about discussing the value of his 448 he is selling?? Don't hold me to that, I missed something since when I posted in it, the thread was two pages, now it's just one.
Only to speculate, I guess a fight broke out about what a "Fair Price" for a 448 is.... :sidelaugh:
The 18HP Onan is nice too.With the hood scoop I wonder if it does in fact help with heat buildup.That one you sold was super nice and yes Grummy's is as state of the art you can get IMHO. I recall you have a 190 ready for resto correct? Just not enough time in the day!!!! :chopwood:tanandorange said:Rich, I wouldn't mind having another one, that scoop adds attitude to the appearance of the tractor. Grummy's resto-mod 448 is about as fine as they get. But right now I've got a couple tractors that need complete restorations so it won't be happening anytime soon.
Bob: I was eying up that loader in the background too. Looks pretty nice. :222: :446: Best Regards, RichFatbob said:It is about an Hour from me. He stated it uses some oil. I have a 448. The 646 in the picture is NOT for sale darn it.
Well, I suppose I have enough time to work on it now, but no room in the garage (lots of stuff put away for the winter) and crappy weather outside. As soon as the weather gets nice, I'll probably be too busy catching up on stuff that has needed done all winter. :wife: Last year I had a plant closing (no money) then an injury, then a long layoff (no money). The ideal solution would be to build a big enough pole barn that I could leave something disassembled for an extended time, then work on it at my leisure. But the cost of the pole barn would put me back to the (no money) problem again. :lolno: Dang it, I've torn tractors down before and managed to finish them, why can't I seem to get any done now?InTroubleAlltheTime said:The 18HP Onan is nice too.With the hood scoop I wonder if it does in fact help with heat buildup.That one you sold was super nice and yes Grummy's is as state of the art you can get IMHO.
