Hidden Treasure

Good morning. When you look around the back weeds of your equipment shop you can spot old machines, attachments and buckets you can turn to cash. Like that old loader or backhoe with a blow engine. Another contractor has the same old machine with a bad transmission and would love to buy your old machine. I recently sold a Cat D8K dozer in great condition but had a bad engine. A stone quarry 30 miles away had the same machine with a good engine and purchased it.

Secondly, that bucket or plate tamper from a machine you traded in has value. Another excavating company doesn't want to pay dealer list for that bucket or attachment they need. Finally, that old pull behind footed roller your dad used in the 1950's, many people can use these for special applications like dirt tracks and farm pits for cow waste etc.

Keep your eyes out and let us know if you have any treasure in your yard
