hey Nate, Would it be possible to pick up the hay rake this Saturday?Report a Violation
Question:
12/5/2013
We are a local Montana hauler, when exactly would you like this picked up and delivered? Report a Violation
Response: I am not sure if you got the text that I sent but it will be available after this Wednesday, it is currently on auction and I should have it bought by then. Thanks!! Nate12/8/2013Report a Violation
Response: Don't know where you sent the text to, but I did not get it. Will give a bid but the weather is wicked right now. We can get PU/Del sorted out later12/10/2013Report a Violation
Response: No problem, thanks! I talked to the equipment dealer, it sounds like the narrowest they can get the rake would be 11'6", I suppose it could even be pulled here? Thanks for the interest!12/10/2013Report a Violation
Response: No it could not be towed. The AG tires cannot stand up to road speeds. It's fine to tow for a few miles behind a pickup but not 900 miles. This needs to be placed on a trailer. I know where this rake is and I will go and look at it next time I am in town an see what the width can be reduced to. 12/11/2013Report a Violation
Response: Thanks for looking into that. I guess I thought of the towing option because I thought the quote sounded pretty high. I know the shipping price estimator isn't exactly right but it was closer to $1500, and I understand that there are permits and such too and a backhaul would be nice too. The auction ends today at 12:30 so I will let you know the status after that. Thanks Nate12/11/2013Report a Violation
Response: Quote is not high for a commercial carrier. The shipping estimator on this site appears to be built for a hotshot. There is no such thing as a backhaul...a load is a load costs the truck the same. Let me know what you want to do. Unfortunately I cannot come down any lower on our bid. Thanks!12/11/2013Report a Violation
Response: Ok, thanks, but I will probably have to decline the offer. Thanks for looking into it! Nate12/11/2013Report a Violation

I just want to make sure you know i can't pick this up tell Tuesday Report a Violation
Response: That would actually work out great, I just put the check in the mail for the rake today and they should have it by Monday so Tuesday would work perfect Do you carry full insurance on the equipment to be shipped?12/11/2013Report a Violation
Response: Yes my freight insurance covers anything fully 12/11/2013Report a Violation
Question:
1/20/2014
Sorry to hear about your shipment being cancelled. I can't meet that price, but I can come in lower than the others you had received. I've got an opening the week of Feb 17. Let me know if the timeframe works for you and I'll submit a bid. Take a moment to review my feedback and ratings, as well as the fact that I have 0 cancellations. I look forward to your response.Report a Violation
Response: The issue with the other provider was that the wheels will not fit on a 102" wide trailer, must have extensions for the rake to sit on it. If you can make it fit, that would be great. 1/20/2014Report a Violation
Response: Ok, how wide is it at the inner tires?1/21/2014Report a Violation
Response: 10'6" would fit both of the inner tires on the trailer. Wondered about lifting rake onto trailer and setting wheels on bridge planks that hang over that far? Or wouldn't that work?1/21/2014Report a Violation
Response: Let me look into it and get back to you. 1/21/2014Report a Violation
Response: Ok, thanks!1/21/2014Report a Violation
Response: What's the diameter of the tires?1/21/2014Report a Violation
Response: I am not sure about that, they are general implement tires I believe. Thanks1/22/2014Report a Violation
Response: I may be able to get this done the week of Feb 3, but need to know asap so we can get the deposit taken care of and permits applied for. Did you get a chance to make sure there's loading and unloading equipment?1/22/2014Report a Violation
Question:
1/21/2014
Disregard the last question, I found it online. Last question, is there a forklift (or some other machinery) to load and unload this on both ends? My trailer has a dovetail and won't work with a loading dock. I know most dealers do, but I'd rather ask then find out otherwise when I show up to load... Thanks.Report a Violation
Response: Yup, rake is on a implement dealer lot. I have a forklift, telehandler, and payloader on this end so yeah we should be able to get it off:)1/22/2014Report a Violation
Response: How much are you willing to spend?1/22/2014Report a Violation
Response: I am waiting to hear back from the dealer yet as well. They have to pick up a tractor in Illinois and I would be right on the way with it. They will let me know by morning and then I will let you know. Thanks1/22/2014Report a Violation
Response: Ok, let me know what they give you for a price and I'll see if I can match or beat it.1/22/2014Report a Violation
Response: Will do. Thanks! Talked with the dealer, it was not going to work into their schedule to haul it. If you put in a bid close to what my first winning bid was the job is yours. The first guy had the capabilities to haul it, just had some things beyond his control that made it not possible to haul it. Thanks1/22/2014Report a Violation
Response: I can't go that low and don't see how he was able to. My expenses are about $1/mile. This is a full load for me by length on top of being oversized. The minimum I can charge is $2/mile. I'd like to see $2.50-$3 per mile though. I'll place a lower bid than I did when I get home tonight, but not that low.1/23/2014Report a Violation
Response: If you put a bid in for $2,000 and can get it here the week of the 3rd, consider it yours. Thanks Nate1/23/2014Report a Violation
Response: I posted a bid that pays me $2000.1/23/2014Report a Violation
Response: Sorry but I am going to have to decline the bid. Dealer knew of someone there that could get it to me for $2000 even. Thanks for your interest and your bid. Nate1/23/2014Report a Violation
Response: I'll do it for $2000 even as well, however I can't on this site with what they charge. 1/23/2014Report a Violation
Response: I did read through the fees, yeah they do add up to a fair amount. I have already booked the load, sorry. Thanks again for your interest.1/23/2014Report a Violation
