Default New to me tractor......

So as me and the missus get to the further introduction to country living,
I got me a tractor. It was a quick deal on CL kinda local in Colorado.
Me and Chris ended up picking it up within 12 Hours as it was seemingly a good deal.
For me a perfect package. Tractor with front loader, back hoe, 6 foot mower,
post hole digger and a 20 foot trailer to haul the whole rig. All for $15.5K
I Don't know much about prices but it looked to be a good deal.
Not to mention that Chris was really cheap to haul the rig home.
It's a 50Hp TYM tractor. The first pic is as we got home in the morning
just in time before he snow storm.

Looks like a bargain to me. A 50 horse tractor could easily be worth $15k.

I think the guy I got the deal from was happy with the family as we met the
the dude and the wife. Chris could chime in but that was my impression.

Yep, he was a nice guy and his wife was as well. He was some kind of equipment dealer and it was something about a repo too. Always good to be in the right place at the right time. Very nice rig. Walter said it had a hundred grease zerks on it, so gave him a grease gun. Since he is not a farmer, it will likely get greased regularly.

I don't know if that is a good deal where you are at but that would be a for sure "Suckage" good deal here I see tractors here as being way over priced

At any rate I think for what you got your did really good and the tractor looks well taken care of an almost new ish looking to boot.

Get a good NLGI #2 grease that says GC-LB on the label.

I like Mobil's XHP-222. But there are a lot of good greases out there.
Citgo's #2 Mystik is a good grease as well.

Congrats on the tractor.

Get a set of forks for the loader and not the type that bolt on to the bucket,
all they do is destroy your bucket.

His bucket is a quick attach so he will be looking for a skid steer type quick attack set of forks.
