I got a call tonight from a buddy of mine that knows about my (collecting) problem and told me that his dad needs to sell the 1782 that they have been using for years at their house about 3 miles down the road. He says it will come with a hydro tiller and what he said is a 54" mower deck. he said something about a blade too. maybe I have them switched and the blade is a 54". anyway he stated "it is in rough shape" but it runs great. I am going to be going to look at it later this week. from what I have found doing some searching here and elsewhere it could be worth anywhere from $1,000-3,000 depending on condition plus the attachment.
What do you guys think? Am I right on my estimate on pricing?
also then what do I do? I haven't even put the mower deck on the 1512 I picked up late last fall. I can't afford the room or the money for both right now so I will have to figure something out. probably sell one of them for sure.
