I have a very straight B-10 with a 42 inch deck, chains, rear lift, and front blade. Its painted orange but the tin is just super and it runs like a top, no smoke, new battery, new drive belt. Am I asking too much at $400 for everything. It seams like a deal to me and I hate to part it out but no one seams to want it. What do I do?

John, why not keep it? Seams like a good price to me. Might not be the right time of year to sell, so if you can wait till spring time you probably won't have a problem selling it. Maybe start off selling the blade, hitch and chains now, then sell the tractor in the spring. John

It depends on where you live. If you have plenty of these tractors around your area, you may have to lower the price, especially since it is orange. If you live in an area where these are sought after, you could easily get $400 for it, orange and all. A solid engine should be worth half that. If I were in the market for it, I'd probably consider it a fair deal.

John, I'd like to have an older tractor for my collection, but I will be in trouble if I bought another tractor this immediate few weeks. Michael G. P.S. If we could figure out a way to ship it or exchange it at a show, I might be able to find a home in a few weeks/few short months.

I think this hit's the nail on the head.. around here Mowerman and I have found good running tractors with attachments for $200-$300 but in other area's out east and west people give more for them because there not so plentiful...
