It’s a wonderful thing to be able to afford new farm equipment like: post hole diggers, grader blades, hay rakes, fertilizer spreaders and hay wagons. But, good used equipment is usually half the price of new.
It’s too hard to find you may argue. And I would agree ten years ago. But now, with e-bay, Craig’s List and dozens of used equipment bulletin boards and sites, there is no excuse for you not to do an electronic search locally.
If the equipment is a little rusty, a $25.00 gallon of paint, a brush and a pint of elbow grease will make it look almost new.
