  • A good deal?
  • Maybe a typo.

  • What's your point?
    Like the vast majority of people, the seller doesn't know exactly what it is. The bottom line is that it's an old tractor, and they just want to sell it. The interest in N series tractors is dying, and not that many people really give a rip. I would guess that there are lots of subjects that your own knowledge is limited, just like the person that posted the info on that tractor. But that wouldn't stop you from advertising your ignorance.

  • Your paying for the seat spring, the new tires and the free dent from a falling tree.
    That dent from the tree makes this a "Survivor".

  • Do the (many) dents that I have make me a survivor? ROFLMAO

  • How many you got? I have 2 current matching, one minor one, another one that is fading with age and then the designer "dent". That was the expensive one.

  • I've lost count between surgical and accidental. The dents come with trying to do things that I should have help doing. That is why I go as high as I can on ladders with one foot on the ground. Too many ounces to bounce.

  • Surgical is 4 including a discectomy back surgery back about 21 years ago. Then a 3 year old Mercedes Benz center emblem on my torso. That is my favorite. The price tag for that one was impressive, I could have purchased a few top of the line machines for the price of that one.
    Add a 367 day old full replacement knee, the other one now is about 6 weeks of age, too many ounces to bounce coupled with a knee twist. Ironic that one knee has such a great effect on the other knee.
    I am starting to look artistic. While in the recovery with the Mercedes scar, I took a surgical pen and drew a large circle around it. The wife did NOT share my humor on it. She is still dismayed when I mention it. One day I might take it to the Mercedes dealer and see if I can get a discount for such a large "tattoo".
    Non surgical are far too many to count starting with a barb wire fence I crossed at about 14 years of age, not paying attention, and found the only sharp spike in the bunch. Opened up the lower leg and left me with a scar that lasted for about 40 years. Funny part on that one is I didn't notice it for about 30 minutes.
    I have not fallen off a ladder. Yet. That opportunity is still waiting. I am fond of the dents in the skull. You might think that would give pause before doing something questionable. Never bet on that one.

  • I've not fallen off of a ladder but slid off of a single story roof one time on the ice! Landed on either frozen soil or concrete. No difference!

  • More likely another clueless seller who has no idea what an 8N is and probably just told by someone what they thought it was. These sellers pop up al the time on ebay and Craigs List.
