Andrew the owner has not gotten back to me in a week now . he said he would be busy and make contact back asap when he gets a chance. He is a resorts owner and prefers to remain anonymous at this point . We have an offer of 4500 for both cats and i'm waiting to hear back if he will accept it. still open to offers .
sorry about the difficulty involved in this sale. I'm still trying to get more pics as well .

CoFarmer,

Tuckers were typically bought by three different types of purchasers; governmental agencies, utility companies and by various organizations for use as groomers.

Of those three, utility company machines generally see the least use and are the best maintained. Machines used as groomers can be characterized by the phrase "rode hard, and put away wet". They got lots of hard usage, repairs were often somewhat makeshift, and maintenance practices were sketchy.

There's a lesson many of us learn the hard way: "The cheapest machine may not be the best value". Parts add up fast. With a groomer you'll likely find a lot of worn parts and probably some cracks in the frame, carriers, etc. Lets take idler wheels... a 1542 will have 20, and new ones are $250+ each.

I personally have learned to avoid machines that were groomers, and I recommend that policy to others.
