Wow! I think somebody's trying to make their house payment this by selling a GT.

Typical of what we see up here these days for pricing. These "project tractors" are priced like they are in mint condition.

Yes, seeing more and more listings like that. Sometimes they go away. Makes one wonder if they're actually fetching
numbers close to the ask price.

Thats way too high for that stuff, but that scraper blade and Gannon earthcavator are pretty hard to find these days......

All of that stuff looks like it's in decent shape, and nothing looks like it's been beat up, but it certainly isn't worth what he's asking.

The hydro lift and the earthcavator do add some value though.

Assuming that the 900 runs decent, I had the cash to spare and it was in decent distance from me. I think I'd go up to 900-1000 for the whole package.

A agree, it doesn't look in horrible shape, but hopefully it is all in workable condition. The 900 itself looks pretty rusty. At least all the tires look newer and were probably replaced not too long ago. However, they are far from the original tires either. The lot of attachments it comes with is nice; the deck looks like a 38" though and not a 42". Never seen that "earth scraper" or whatever - I'm guessing it goes behind the tractor and you pull it along to grade out loose dirt or rocks or something? But yeah, he's out of his mind with that price! MAYBE if everything there was totally restored and looked like brand-new...

Maybe he just forgot a decimal point or something and meant to say $23.75? :bigrofl: lol!


(I was gonna say if THAT tractor is worth $2,000 in that condition, I'd hope mine is worth at least $3,000-$4,000 once I get done painting it!!!)
