 Here's the situation guys.  I removed the back half of an old disc I had in order to use it with my GT.  The plans I had were to use it to maintain a couple of food plots when I needed to reseed them.  They have had oak and walnut volunteer in them and I've decided to let them take the plots over. 

 

I now have nothing I will use the disc for and I'm thinking about selling it but it's back in an area that will require a decent amount of work to get it across a small branch.  It will tear up a crossing pretty good and I'm not so sure about pulling a steep incline with it on the back.  So I'm wanting a little feed back.  Even if you're not interested in it, what would pay for it if you were in the market?  I'm trying to decide if worth the work to get it out to sell.

 

Thanks in advance.

They have an adjustment crank that straightens and offsets.  It works but haven't tested how far it will go.  To me the whole idea was to tear up some dirt.  It does that.  If I straighten it for the crossing it would make for easier pulling but it becomes slightly wider and it's a narrow crossing.  Worth checking out though.

In my area, I can get good money for a small disc without half trying.

If I was looking for one I would pay probably at least 200-250 for a good one.

I would say if it was sitting out where you could sell it, and it was assembled or easy to do after purchase... Probably $200 around here. More if its a brand name.

You might get more, but I would expect it to go reasonably quickly at $200

you could make a sled to put it on and drag it from the end. would only take a couple of planks and a few nails.

Thanks guys, I'd say this might become a fall project if I can work it in.
