That is a really nice 155 for a mere $250.00..



2 new front tires, a new battery and some low pressure hose might add up to $75.00 in expenditures to put this one into running shape but that is not a big deal.

:+1: for tractor cupid...it's at my place now. The seller (2nd owner) was really nice, and let me take it home for $225. The tractor is almost completely original and has been stored indoors since new. Even the deck is nice. All tin is virtually rust free and straight except for a fender that is dented. The steering is reasonably tight for a machine that old, which leads me to believe the original owner knew how to use a grease gun, this thing was pretty well cared for. :thumbup:

Congratulations John! I'm really glad someone from this group brought this tractor home. I hope it was as good of a deal as it appeared to be.

On a side note, I believe this is the third confirmed tractor purchase from craigslist ads that I have posted, making me the all time leader in this category. I am currently planning a fabulous trip to either Winneconne or Racine Wisconsin, or perhaps even Portland Maine on the winnings I expect to receive from TractorCupid.com. I can't even begin to express the level of excitement that my wife has been displaying at prospect of this trip.

When the management of this forum show up at my front door to present to me one of those over-sized checks, I will be sure to post a picture of the entire family with gigantic smiles on all of our faces.

It would seem that I am really on a roll, I'm off to buy some lottery tickets !!!

The above is what happens when I refer to this guy as a "prominent member". Suddenly his head won't fit through the front door anymore. :sidelaugh: :sidelaugh: :sidelaugh:

Don't be counting those chickens just yet, Danny boy. If I can get Jim Francis to get off his butt and search out all the links to tractors he bought as a result of postings on this board made by Jack, then you will have to hand your winning lottery tickets over to our resident legal beagle. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Yeah, teaming Jim & Jack together is kind of a recipe for a "perfect storm".

And the lawer ending up with all of the money seems pretty much inevitable in the long run.

I'm not quite sure how to take this "prominent member" business. I'm more used to bring referred to as a "promininant A-hole" or perhaps a "throbbing member".

What gives?

A prominent member is one who posts frequently and also contributes to the site in other ways.

Does that clear it up for you? :sidelaugh:


If so, take something to shrink your head and get back to helping us make the site an interesting place to visit. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Actually, Tom, I'm currently cooking something up that I think (hope) you are going to like.

Stay tuned.

Well, I fired her up for the first time this afternoon. NICE running Kohler (absolutely no smoke or noises) and the drive seems to be working correctly. I put fresh Rotella in the hydraulics after replacing the cooler hoses, but still need to change the engine oil and mount the new front tires. Then on to getting some new belts and trying out the deck. My oldest boy traded me "his" 220PK for it, so he's even happier than I am. :thumbup:
