ive bought and sold online. are you going to inspect and pick it up yourself or are you buying new stuff and have it shipped to you. in southeast agrisupply had some of the best prices on new implements. online used, craigslist, eBay, tractor house, equipment trader, govdeals, all surplus, govplanet, gsaauctions.gov, are just a few if buying CAT products go direct to local used CAT dealer online, they guarantee what they sell but $t $$$costs $$$$.  Buyer beware on used tractors due diligence is important unless money no object in that case just call local Kubota dealer and have them send over what you need.

I'll give you an example I witnessed no too long ago. there was a state auction of backhoes. of the 8 or so available two were parked next to one another and both were complete and looked real clean, one a 1995 the other 2005 both the same model. all batteries were dead. the 95 model with 4000 hours and the 2005 with 2500 hours both got bid up quickly. the 2005 went for less than $2000 more than the 95 model. the buyers put new batteries in them. the 95 started right up and was driven on trailer and hauled out. the 2005 would not start or even turn over had to be winched up and hauled on a slide back wrecker, I ran into the buyer a couple months after witnessing all this and he said the 2005 engine was toast and had to be completely rebuilt including pistons, sleeves, bearings valves crankshaft and 2 new rods. cost was about 50% of the initial $13000 he paid for the machine
