Now this is what i am talking about, sharing what you paid can be very infomative, gets the other members putting in there 2 cents and kind of gives you an idea on what to offer, i think you did very well, i have a single that i paid $125 for, so was assuming a double would be $250, apparently i may have paid too much for the single, but i know where a double is and because of your info and comments from others i will keep my offers around $150 or walk, theres always another day, thanks you guys , you may have saved me 100 bucks

I just glad I found a set. Hopefully he follows through and drops them off tonight.

They don't do worth a lick in grass but the set up its horrible lol. I wonder if the hitch will lift this if I have a couple blocks on them? I also need to widen them a bit

The hitch won't lift it without something bending.  Just a single could be lifted fine, but not the tandem.

They arent meant to be lifted.  The hitch is for lifting a single gang, when you add the second gang, you just pull them around.

They work best on freshly plowed ground.

If you want it, and you like it, and it's not for resale to supplement your income, go for it. Who cares what it costs!!!

I have a set of these that are a friend of mine. They don't work at all on dry or hard ground. But after a day or two of a nice rain, put some cement blocks on them and they work great.....

I noticed that. When I first got them we were really dry. They didn't work at all. I haven't tried them since the rain.

I don't care to talk money. 150$ is what I gave

From what I've seen, I wouldn't call it a steal, but it sounds like a pretty good price.

My goal is to put a hydraulic lift on it before spring. It's too much for the sleeve hitch and we all know that getting off the tractor is a pain. I looked at it like this...75$ a gang, that isn't bad.
