No affiliation, yada yada. Ends 2/26/14

It could be really useful to someone here, as it doesn't need a 3 point or hydraulics. In theory, you can pull it with a 4wd pickup (although it probably wouldn't be a permie-friendly truck if it could actually do it). But you can pull it with a cheap older tractor (cheap because it doesn't have a 3 point or hydraulics).

For those wanting to try keyline on a budget. A lot of times stuff like this goes for less than the scrap iron value, so you wouldn't be out anything other than fuel if you are close by.

If it is the one I think it is (an old International), it will go about 30" deep. Deep enough to bury waterlines below frostline for many. Deep enough it would hit bedrock for me.

Cool !
It is in Saint Edward, NE 68660.
So far pretty low bids.
 
Yeah, but does being a ninja come with a dental plan? And what about this tiny ad?
