Ace, try looking in Uncle Henry's Weekly. It's $1.50 at most convenience stores. Look under Farm & Garden/ Farm. The best part about it is All the ads placed are pretty local (ME,NH etc..). You can look online @ www.unclehenrys.com but I'm not sure if you need a membership or not.
Good Luck!
Also, I've decided to hang on to my mower, FYI

MB Tractor has used Backhoes that people trade in. They also have a used equipment auction at the Plaistow shop every spring where you can get good deals on used equipment. I'll get some more info on this for you. I got my first backhoe used from MB (Mears then) and last spring upgraded to a new 30HP Kubota. MB is opening a new sales shop on Route 1 in Portsmouth, they also own East Eliot Garage in Eliot me.

Yes, it looks like the reconstruction just started. Probably more exposure than at east eliot garage. Have you ever been to the used equipment auction they have?

Actually went to one about 5 years ago back when Mears had it.

York rake for 200 bucks almost new.

Wonder what brands the Rye location is going to have??

MB has them now. I have bought a lot of good items, some just for fun. Last year I went as usual and normally spend just a little money . My wife asked how much I spent when I got home and I said "hmmm...not much a little over 24 grand!!!!""" Thats when I bought the new Kubota. I may be selling an antique International at this years auction, it depends we have some other people looking at it as well.


I only saw a few Kubota tractors in Portsmouth. They really haven't even opened yet, still remodelling.
