    A couple weeks ago I posted about a 52", 17HP Ferris DD, with sulky, and only 200 hours on it, I was going to buy, but I wanted to make sure the $3000 price tag was fair. You guys convinced me that it sounded fair, so I went back to the bargaining table with the seller:dancing: . He now has in mind that he is going to buy a ZTR, and he needs to pay off his walker first. He owes $2300 on it, so now we've settled on me paying the $2300, and I'll pay off the rest ($700.00) with firewood at $50/ face cord. All I have to do is drag the wood out of my woods, and he's going to cut it, split it and haul it home!! :clapping: :clapping: I'm going to be standing at the bank in the morning when they open! I wish I could get the money sooner!
    Thanks to everyone that posted and helped me out on this one!!! :drinkup:

    Good for you man. A good barter like that is the best thing.
    Everybody comes out ahead. I'm sure you'll really enjoy that
