I agree, Whenever you see those words they usually are way over priced or are simply just everyday run of the mill machines.

Unfortunately "Rare and Antique" no longer have much meaning.

Almost every ad you see on craigslist or ebay has those words in it.... 

 

Did we not play with a over price tube frame like a year ago?

Hey! Hey! Lighten up on the guy!!! After all, it's only been used a few times. Odie told him it is worth it, and Odie knows everything.

He's with Cooter and Odie in the tow truck going to pull Roscoe out of the swamp again before they appraise more tractors.

I saw a john Deere 316 listed as a round fender for 1800.00 in Missouri or Arkansas CL, they smoke Meth down here, way more potent. I had a guy want to sell me a Wards tractor and blade for 2 grand, he said he would let it rust into the ground before he took less than 1500.00 for it (it was his Pappy's) I told him I saw the pictures, that event has already came and went

I have a couple of Wheel Horse GT's with cigarette lighters....Didn't realize that adds hundreds and hundreds of dollars to the valve.

 

 Yup, both my Sears Hydro-Tracs have them, too. Cha-Ching!

Sir, apparently you don't know you lawn tractors or am another person looking for a hand out. It's fine with me we have a buyer already that knows the lawn tractor and offering $650. So, don't make me laugh. Go on to someone who is ignorant


Where is the antique one? All I see is the common run of the mill Craftsman that everyone has. That thing is worth about $200 tops.

This was his response to me. Looks like the lawnmower is going on to someone who is ignorant.

That's about like the Bolens snowblower on eBay, when it doesn't sell, he raises the price.

Jerome is talking about a thread I started about a guy in the Columbus OH area that was asking $1,500.00 for a Bolens 1000.  :rolling:

 

That thread took off and a lot of other overpriced tractors of other brands ended up in it as well.

 

If I remember right, the thread was titled "It's Rare". I've tried searching for it, but I think that it disappeared when the forum software was updated :(

More emails

From him

Glyou think so, top bidder is $650.00 if you want to over bid him than do. He just left our yard. If you don't wish to out bid him take the bull elsewhere.

 

My reply

If you sell that pile to anyone for a penny over $200 you should be ashamed of yourself. If you got some fool to offer you $600 for it you should have taken it.

Him

Sir you have no clue what we have a 1000lb tractor/ lawn. Yours probably is a remake of the original. See there are two Craftsman's made the same year. One just about shut down John Deere. We have that model. So. if you would leave me alone. I cant stand a person who is a joke or ignorant.
Allow me to be perfect clear about who is ignorant here. It isn't me. I have owned 4 of those tractors. They were not the tractors built to compete with JD. That tractor was a Craftsman FF, it had hydraulics, a larger frame, bigger axles, and was much heavier than your Craftsman II and still didn't weigh 1000 pounds. It was 850 popunds according to TractorData.
 
The FF was built for 2 years and in no way caused JD any problems. It was a good tractor but never sold well. It is not what you have though.
 
The only way that is a 1000 pound tractor is if your fat ass is on it and you weigh 600 pounds.
 
You may be sincere in your belief that you have some special half ton tractor with magical propertys, but you are sincerely wrong. DO some research. Learn a little bit and you will see that you have a run of the mill ordinary Craftsman II that is not rare, not special, and not heavy duty.
 
Ignorance is being shown that you are wrong and continuing to believe you are right. Smarten up. The more you learn the better you will be at selling these old tractors. There is a market for old Sears and Craftsman, but it isn't in the $850 range for a rusted, beat up, filthy, duct taped mess.

At this point I am just playing with him. He is too ignorant and arrogant to admit he is wrong.
