I don't know enough about CC pricing to know if it's a good deal. To me it would depend on the mechanical condition of the tractor and attachments. Although they are rough cosmetically if they are not worn out it's a nice package.

He's probably not to far out of line with the package. And it has electric lift.

I think that the price is too high. I could see it if the tractor was restored or at least looked nice. My guess would be some where around 1000 would be top price of whats it's worth but I think he would have a hard time getting that. The tractor with the tiller and deck would be a 350-500 package, I'm not sure what the chipper is worth on it's own though. Another thing to keep in mind is that this is a narrow frame tractor. Also while the electric lift is nice, when the actuator fails you need to find a used one to replace it with and they aren't cheap/

I think that tractor looks a little rough to me.  Fenders are beat up on the back side and the reflectors are missing.  If the deck and tiller are in about the same shape I would say top dollar would be 800 in its condition.  Those MacKissic built chippers aren't super easy to find in IH colors but they can be found just the same.

Ouch

 

But he could be close if that's a low hour long block.He's still around $300-400 on the high side.

 

 

Those 59M chippers are not "Super Rare" my uncle has 2 and he doesn't hunt or collect rare stuff.

As the crow flies that's only three miles from me. Tractors seem to be priced on the high side in this area, especially Cub Cadets.

Anything Green or Yellow/White people think is worth more. I'm not familiar with 147 label, that was new to me. But, I don't know Cub models real well. Must not have made many in that size/number?  Hear about 127's all the time, not 147.

147 is a 14 horse Kohler. Was their most powerful machine at that time.
They had to modify the frame to fit it.
Who ever bought it new, went top of the line spare no expense.
His price is a little high for around here. But it is the complete package.
If he were near a major metropolitan area, it would sell.
But, Fitswilliem is rather remote!
And he doesn't sound like any pleasure to deal with!
