Is it just me or is this getting high

Recommended Posts

I've looked at this unit in person, it doesn't run (battery dead) and is not represented as running. The owner does admit the transmission is "Ruined" (note taped to unit but no details). Is it just me or doesn't this seem really high? http://www.purplewaveauction.net/cgi-bin/mnlist.cgi?purple28/7994

I would be wary of anyone selling a tractor as "running", but "needs battery" If you wanted top dollar for a tractor would you not be willing to spend $25-30 for a battery. That tractor looks a bit used up anyway, and should be sold as a fixer-upper... In my opinion of course...

That is a lot but you are getting a tiller and hopefully the drive for it, a dozer blade and a 48" deck. I have noticed anytime you add attachments to a tractor the price seem to jump, JMHO.

That's pretty high. I'm currently selling a working AC B-210 with hydro lift, wheel weights, deck with new blades, starts every time, strong runner for $400 So that guy's definitely out of his mind.

I bought a simplicity equivalent without tiller a month ago at the Jones, Michigan swap meet for $20.00 it didn`t have a motor. I bought because my neighbor needed the deck.

It sold for $475 then you need to a 10% buyers premium and sales tax (something like 6.8%) so he'll have $558 in it before he starts tearing into the transmission. I shouldn't complain - I sold a 12 year old Wards Signature 2000 (MTD) with a 18 hp Briggs engine and a 42" deck at the same auction two weeks ago for $425.00. Only problem is they keep 20% and still haven't paid me yet (says it takes two weeks to get paid). http://www.purplewaveauction.net/cgi-bin/mnlist.cgi?purple9/category/LAWN-AND-GARDEN

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
