Default Ferret or Ranger V Tractor

I have been searching for a Ranger V or Ferret Tractor for years, Arnold MFG company, Pengilly MN built them, they sold out to a company and they changed the name to Otter Tractor. I worked at sports center back in the 70s as a Ski Doo, Honda wrench, and we sold and serviced the Ferret Tractors. The store had a used Ferret Tractor that I would borrow for collecting sap. I have always wanted one of these. I located a few over the years for sale but there were to far away, and the ones that were sold local back in the 70s, the owners will not part with them. So if anyone knows where there is one or knows someone who has one, thats not to far away let me know, I might be interested. Condition doesn't matter.

Default Arnold Ferret Tractor/ Ranger V

I have one of these, it's probably mid 70's ish, but is excellent running condition (could use some fresh paint, as it is a bit faded) I may be willing to part with it. I am not too far from you (relatively speaking). Kohler motor around 20hp. I have a bunch of papers, manuals, information, and the serial number, if you wanted all the details. Message me if you are still looking.

Have you tried Hudon's snowmobile salvage in Barneveld, NY. If there are any around, they might have it. Besides snowmobiles they get in lots of things that will work in snow.
