In my opinion, this is so not worth the price. I buy tractors like this for $150.00 all the time. Who thinks this is worth the money?

Three tractors $550 each. Come with plow,deck, or snowthrower attachment,whichever you'd like. Two tractors have high/low from 3-6 gear tranny. 781-336-8798

I wonder how shocked he'll be when none of them sell?? At least he'll have some spares around if we get snow.

Another prime example! here is a tractor that was bought for an incredibly low price, cleaned, and being sold as a survivor! people will do anything to make money. It baffles me how many times this happens. Someone sells something cheap because they don't know what it is worth, a person buys it and tries to make a TON of money. unbelievable. My advice if your feeling upset, just go on craigslist and see what people want for their tractors!!!!!! you would be amazed!!!!!

WOW!!!  Someone butchered the frame and put in a K341.  Not worth more than 200 in my opinion.

The Sears in the OP, I paid $250 for my orange SS12 with mower deck and blade in MUCH better shape than those. Added a snow blower for $100 a year later, so $350 total for same equipment... EXCEPT those have a lighter... Never seen a $200 lighter before, must be a good one...

Several times I thought I have spent to much on my little work horse, but I look back at the fun I have had with it and no longer feel that way. I wouldn't have had half the memories I do with my kids without it or something like it. Then an ad like this pops up and I feel even better. :D

Maybe I should call him to thank him?

Sears good rigs, but agree that price for lot, Maybe!   I think that now "ordinary" people are seeing GT's take off and at shows so much, they think anything is re-paintable and will bring big $$.  Just another way to make things more money, because people not in know, DO buy this stuff to be "accepted" in the crowds of tractor owners.  Lots of them are Lawn Tractors and others weren't worth a D.... when new with bad designs,  but people think they have gold anyway.
