There is one thing to point out. I understand were you come from. And i do agree.  But to bring out the other side of it. Since the hobby has started to grow more people are getting into it. Some of these people think its a great deal and thats fine for them. The nice tractors that are in decent shape are going to be harder and harder to find expecialy as much as this hobby is growing. Prices on all this stuff is going up. And unfortunatly i think its only gona get worse. To bad. :shoot2:  :wallbanging:

In most of my experiences, I usually end up upsetting the seller in one or two ways. I only shop for John Deere round fenders, and in most cases, the sellers don't have the experience to know what year tractor they are selling, so they list it as a 1963 110 "Rare".

 

One time I called a guy who had such a tractor listed for sale and I asked to come and see it. The seller proceeds to give me some type of unknowledged, off the internet, fly by the seat of his pants history lesson about the tractor. I play stupid and don't let on that I'm a collector or have any experience about these old round fenders. Anyway, we meet, and I can quickly tell that the tractor is a 1967 110. I listen to his story again about how this tractor is the first year of production, only year of production with the fiberglass hood, and it's extremely rare as there were only 1000 of these made. He proceeds to tell me that he knows he can get a lot more for it than his asking price, but since I came to look at it, and I'm the first one to inquire about it, he'll let me have a deal of $500.00. I look the tractor over as if I'm interested, and then after a few minutes, I tell him what the tractor really is, and then give him my phone number and my counter offer. I got a really strange look of surprise at first, then a look of anger, as he just figured out that I played him. Upset #1

 

After I looked at the tractor, told him what I know, and he called me virtually everything but Troy, I left. Nothing gained, nothing lost. However, that same seller called me after three months of my visit, and told me he will sell me the tractor if my offer still stands. I told him the offer stands, and I'd be over that weekend. Turns out, my offer was better than everyone else's that came to look at the tractor, and he quickly found out, that I wasn't wrong with the knowledge that I expressed to him that day, as he was told the same thing from others. My offer was a little higher than what the tractor was worth, but I had to sweeten the pot if I wanted a call back from him. He didn't get what he wanted for the tractor, and he didn't have what he thought he did. Upset #2

 

I don't have a problem with people who want to buy low and sell high, and if money can made on a deal, than that's great, go for it. My problem with over priced items is this. If you are going to try and sell something for an incredible amount of money, then do some research on the item, and find out all that you can about it. Don't make something up, blow smoke up someone's butt, and hope that you convinced them to make the deal. At least know what you are selling, get an idea as to how long the item was manufactured, and do some research to find out what the going market rate is for it. Don't make yourself look more stupid than your high asking price.

The seller replied to me about getting a $300 offer on his DB.

I told him that's where 2 fools met, the buyer was a fool for offering that much, and he was a fool for not taking it.

I think I ticked him off.


It appears I was correct, the person that supposedly offered $300 for his tractor has a $100 bid on another DB and is the high bidder. In fact he is the only bidder on the other tractor.

Just like I said "Used Car Salesman".

The same buyer is also bidding up a drag harrow. I bought one just like it last year for $10.

Wonder how much of these ebay prices are fixed ? Say I put one of my DB plows on , I get Pat to bid it up ,say $200 for a $100 plow  ,if it sells great I make some big $$.But  if Pat wins the bid , I  pay ebay , but keep the plow , now Pat puts one on (  the one that's he  wants to sell ) if someone buys it below $200  they think they got a good deal !  Guess I'm too paranoid , Al

You don't have to put it of eBay, I'll buy that Tator plow outright. LOL I was thinking the same thing, that roller turns hard, you would have to work on it to get it to work.

I try to sell items at it's worth price. Sometimes it may be a little higher due to the fact of what I put in it. The thing is when I sell something I make sure it's at least something worth it. Same goes for buying. the only difference is I look for deals.

That's about $500 to high.

And that would be if you lived close enough to pick it up !

I think you maybe you are onto something....I mean that is a pretty good explanation of how that roller could be bid up to $525 !
