This was a lot of firsts for me personally. First tractor, first trucking deal, first real act of e-commerce really (a few cards on ebay doesn't really compare). I bought a tractor from a dealer in western OH, Hoopes got it to my home in central NY. The only thing approaching a "hitch" in the whole process: the truck that was closest to my tractor was the one they had w/out a beaver tail. We were able to manufacture a loading dock on the property and they'd cleared this situation with me before hauling it my way.
