This is forsale around me. It runs and drives good. Mower deck is in good shape. Tires hold air.

What do you think is a good price?

Oddly enough 1978Murray was just asking this same question about a B112.  I think the common consensous was less than $100 if it was marginal to non-working.  Maybe a bit more if it was in better shape with attachments.

 

If you are thinking about buying a foot dragger, what the 3 part series by Zippo Varga on Youtube.

I'd go up to $300.00 for it. I'd guess the year to be 1968? Don't find many B-12's anymore with the old "Bee" decals. Good luck to you!

I would say $200-300 depending on condition up close. Like Troy said you dont see many and that looks pretty complete.  Start low $$, you can always go up.

I have been looking at a few of these.  I am not sure why but I really like them.   And I have not seen one that looks that good for under 400 bucks.   Good luck.

Well B10 is no B12. I would say north of $400 if it indeed runs good and deck is in good shape. I would give $ 5-600 if it were near me.

You guys aren't making me feel very happy.  I'm $800 into the revival of my HB112, and that doesn't count the purchase price. :(  

 

 

But, it is a runner, or at least it was when I parked it last. :deadhorse:

Well B10 is no B12. I would say north of $400 if it indeed runs good and deck is in good shape. I would give $ 5-600 if it were near me.

 

Its very close. 2 hp and a different seat are the differences. For price comparison it gives a ball park. A Simplicty 725 went for $150 the next day. They are all the same basic tractor which is an advantage of the 60s era ACs and Simplicities. I have 6 of these tractors and 12+ attachments with less than $600 in everything. They are great tractors.

 

I am sceptical that it runs. Many times I find people claiming that the machine runs but "just not in the last week". One problem is the exposed gas cap usually lets water into the tank and carb. That can be an expensive pain. If it runs and charges good and the mower deck is good then its worth what you want to pay. The prices have been going crazy. Good luck, Rick

The b12 was the rarest of the b series after the b1, to find one for sale is a but tough. It's worth whatever someone will pay for it, and because of its somewhat rarity is worth a bit more than the previous quotes. I would pay up to $500 because of the condition and mower deck, and I need the parts lol!
