The ramps weren't sufficient so I went driving around route 18 looking for something with a dock. In the meantime, my neighbor Pete who has a towing business saw the dilemma and had Dave pull in the semi and they transfered the tractor onto the tow and lowered it and Dave drove it to my farm 2 doors down.
Dave's semi stalled and is stuck so I took him and Nick home and the trucking company will have to come get the semi tomorrow. That is a lot of trouble for Dave to go through so I am very grateful for his help.
In the meantime, the owner of the truck parts store down the road offered to buy the tractor and possibly at a profit. It is big and complicated so I will have to think it over as I am not sure yet. It needs a battery and it has a hydraulic leak which isn't a big deal it's just money is tight till I get the house rented.
I have plenty of pictures so I'll post them tomorrow.
