[quote author=Cattle Hauler link=board=11;threadid=7993;start=45#81282 date=1040126258]<br><br><br>Have you gone thou the John Deere Headquarter in Moline IL<br>[/quote]<br><br>I didn't go through the tour but we did go to the John Deere Headquarters building. They have on large showroom with tons (and I meen tons) of JD equipment in it. It's kinda funny really cause a lot of the tour in the HQ building were these little Japaneas people. ??? It's realy funny to see a 4 foot nothing man standing by a 15' tall dozer. <br><br>Something else you might want to check out is the Ertl toy museum. I collect toy tractors, so it was pretty cool to see as well. <br><br>DB

Re:My next cattle trailer

Man Ricky, you're as ate up as my cusin Mike. He bleeds Green We put the 7810 in a perade this summer and Mike went and had a sign shop make stickers to put on the engine covers that say &quot;FEAR the DEERE&quot; <br><br> I have over 6,000 tractors in my collection. All sizes, and makes 1/64, 1/32, 1/50, 1/16, and one 1/8 scale. Most of them are in boxes but my whole room is covered with shelves of toy tractors. : I don't collect them like I used to, I spend too much money on my truck and ATV's now but used to go to all the shows and everything. <br><br>DB

Re:My next cattle trailer

&quot;The John Deere Store stocks one of the largest collections of the ERTL toy line anywhere and many of the products are highly sought after collectibles.&quot;<br><br>O.K. now I am really, really sad about the fact I won't be able to make it over there. :'( Oh well..maybe next year, or we could set up an annual meet in Waterloo or Moline for all the Midwest DTR members. Just a thought.....

Re:My next cattle trailer

Hey CH,<br> On your search for the perfect aluminum gooseneck cattle trailer did you come across any negatives on the Wilson? The reason I ask is because here in Oklahoma there might be a dozen Livestock / Horse trailer manufacturers. Of that dozen probably 6 or 7 make an aluminum trailer. It is rare to find a good used trailer. If you do ,the resale price on it it not much lower than a new trailer sells for. As far as the Wilsons go I dont know if I have ever seen a used Wilson cattle trailer ( gooseneck). There is a Wilson dealer in OKC , but they sell mainly the semi trailers. Was just curious on how your research fared. Looks like it was a fair price when you look at the cost of comparable trailers from other manufacturers.
