    Default Finding Used TR3 or similar???

    Anyone have any suggestions for finding used drags. I am looking for a TR3 and found one nearby but missed it by a day found another very far away and it is narrower than my tractor, so I'd have to get a small second tractor, at which point I could buy a new TR3 for all that $. I have been scouring ebay and craigslist for ages. Any other ideas? Thanks!

    Have you contacted the manufacturer about any returned units they might have? As I recall, they have a very good return policy if you do not like one of their drags. Since everyone I know loves their TR3's, they may not have any, but it's worth the call / email to try.

    I did contact the company and they don't have any used ones. The guy said their return rate is only about 1%. I actually just bit the bullet this weekend and ordered a new one. I got a great deal and CAN'T WAIT to get it now that I finally made a decision and bought one! Thanks for the advice. The good and bad news is, everyone loves their TR3, so the company doesn't have used ones to sell!

    I looked for a bit before buying a new one. They turn up from time to time, but maybe not nearby and tend to sell quickly. It's not something I'd buy long distance as somebody willing to go to the trouble of packing and shipping is probably a scam.

    Here is one in Texas

    If you are in Washington and this is real you should probably buy this at $750 even if you don't have an arena to drag.

    And an older ad in New York that is probably sold
