I'm not sure but it is one seriously nice large frame setup. Low hours tractors are getting harder to find.

No question it is worth atleast half that but how much more IDK. It does look supper nice and has great attachments. Compared to new, its a bargain. It is way out of my budget range. Good Luck, Rick

It sounds to me like grandson is sure trying to capitalize on "gramps" quality care of a great machine. Sad really if that's what's happening here. We have a very similar set up here for sale in ME that's equally over priced.

Rick brings up a good point. Go and buy a new heavy duty GT these days, wow. But he should start at $2500 and take offers. Now he is just scaring people and Halloween is over.

If I was the grandfather, I would have told the kid to put a heavy price on it too. If I'd bought, used, and took care of it for 30+ years, I'd want my grandkid to get as much as I can leave him. A high price will keep away the butchers that wouldn't love and care for it.

 

A neighbor bought a beautiful CC about 6 years ago. It had been well cared for all its life. The original owners' wife had no idea what it was worth, (he had told her to ask $800 but she thought that he was crazy) so she sold it to my neighbor for $50.  He has used and abused it and leaves it outside. A fair price of $600 would have put it in the hands of someone who would take better care of it. Good Luck, Rick
