    Ever had one of those deals you could'nt say no too, or when you get there 3 other guys are lined up to buy it.

    Today I went to look at a salter with no intention on buying it today.

    I got there and some other guy was already looking at it... he himmed and hawed, got in his truck and i bought it.

    Picked it up for $650... the thing was, i had no way of getting it home. So i bought his $400 dollar trailer too....lol

    6 hours at 50kms an hour i got home!

    and i swear there was no :drinkup: on the way.

    Not me in the pic lol....

    I hope it was a good deal!!!!!! :dizzy:

    why did you drive 6 hrs just to look at it without a way to get it home? an that trailer is some high rent scrap metal... although i'd say 650 is a good deal on the spreader if it all works and ain't rotted to hell. that's a good deal even in USD i think....
