Clearing Sale

Roger has been wanting a new (second-hand) 5-in-1 seed and fertiliser bin so he has looked at the classified advertisements in the Farm Weekly and he has scanned the clearing sales. He went to a clearing sale a couple of months ago but instead of buying a bin he bought an old motorbike and some other random junk as is so easy to do at a clearing sale. This week there was a reduction sale at a farm just near home, so we went along and he bought an old 5-in-1 bin. It was a lot cheaper than he had budgeted for (but he will need to do a fair bit of work on it before he uses it.) And as an added bonus he also bought the truck that it was mounted on, for only $1,000!! You can probably guess how old the truck is. It needed to be jump started and have the brakes bled before he could drive it home.
