Yes, and I want one. You have access to one?

We have a fairly nice one with electric start and generator.
Pulls like a train and loads of fun.
Might consider selling for $2,500.

There is a guy who used to bring his to the ROAV events. Very cool little bit of kit. I have seen Roberts. Our conversation and my drooling ended when he advised it was worth 8k.

I had one a few years ago. It was the m274a5 which started out as a two-wheel steer model. Pain in the butt. I definitely recommend the 4-wheel steer version. I bought a kit from a surplus dealer and turned it into a 4-wheel steer model.

Electric start is very cool too

Mules are very fun and always draw a crowd

If you win it I can drag it to my place while you arrange shipping.

If you mean that I may bid on it.
