OK, so here we have an item that doesn't run and looks to have been neglected its entire life. Plus its also missing parts. There's lots of machines out there that fall into this category and thats okay

But when this Seller insinuates that his item is still worth decent money simply because it's "from when things were well built" is just flat out bogus.




UGH!

things were made better back in the day. sure wish we still had our 24 year old Kenmore washer. ran quieter and better than the new one we got a couple years ago. but the wife wanted a new washer/dryer set.

we're lucky if a Mr. Coffee works for more than a year. Everything we buy nowadays has a 50-50 change of lasting more than 2 years .

That's why I go to garage/yard sales looking for old stuff that will last and work better than the new crap.

I value well made stuff but I don't toss money out the window. I'd rather put that 250 and a little more towards something running or running poorly that I'd have some way to test. If it isn't running I'm not taking the persons word on how well it used to run. For all I know they picked it up in a storage locker, garage sale, grandpa's barn and "think" it used to work.

Hard to believe that that thing missing a hood (at least), no deck and not running is collectible enough to be worth $250

That's a cast iron k-series Kohler and a direct drive, geared transmission... maybe even the 6-speed with a granny gear... in that old Cub 128.

Respect!

I'm in love with the Kohler on my Troy tiller and would never think of a re-power (unless Kohler), rebuild only. They just sound great putting away tearing up the soil. Well built old stuff we can be proud of always impresses me but I've seen my fair share of well built old stuff that's just abused and worn out.
Soooo on the Cub, love the Kohler but it's not running and even with the best cast, direct, granny geared 6 speed it could have eaten itself and that's why it lost parts to another machine and was put in the corner. Don't know, that's the problem.

I'm sorry I just don't appreciate when someone tries to sell me some dream of how great something could be when they are too lazy to put a battery in it and get it running or the electrical problem that likely just needs a fuse, are you kidding me go buy a fuse. We've all seen those ads. Might just need gas but they haven't tried to put any in, why ??
I came across this Kubota for sale for $3K and my question is where on this thing can you find $3,000 worth of good used parts the fire didn't destroy ?? https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/h...576439308.html
The Cub might be a good buy to a Cub guy who might have some parts for it but for me it's just something that used to be a really good tractor.
No disrespect intended.
