Howdy
On Saturday I am seeing a one family owned, very original Hiller 101 Yard Hand Tractor with front snow plow and rear reel motor
I have been told it runs and the tractor was not purchased at Sears
Most likely I will be in charge of selling the Hiller and sure could use some help in getting a value on this garden tractor
If you'd like to help? The tractor is in Denver CO and I have a long history of shipping to the States as well as Internationally
Please contact me thru the Private Message service
Thank you for this Forum

Values can be a very tough thing to nail down.
We see vast differences in locations and by condition... Pictures help and please keep in mind the overly inflated pricing one tends to see on ebay is not the kind of answer you are apt to get here.

Welcome to GTtalk, good luck on your stewardship.

Welcome to the forum!

 

We want pictures!  Pictures will help us know what we are dealing with, too.

 

Just as a warning, I don't think anyone here will post an exact dollar amount.  We all say, "the value depends on what the market will pay" because that is the way it really works.  You might see that someone sold a Hiller for $2000, and someone sold one nicer than that for $300, and you received multiple offers of $500, and you could scrap it for $20 (but God forbid!). 

 

There is not a set value on something that varies so consistently and wildly like a garden tractor.  No one can predict what rare options are there, what covers are missing, and how worn out the motor is. 

 

However, if you want offers, we'll give them.  :D  I'd love to have a Hiller.

Put a price and pictures on here and get offers, who knows what may happen.

I'm not sure how much the value is affected by the fact it was not sold at Sears. Does that affect the warranty duration?

I don't know about the warranty but it will sure drop the value. I hear those Sears collectors throw money around about like the John Deere guys.

To be of full value, it would have to have the craftsman badge on the nose..

 

 

In all seriousness, its worth 13 cents a pound at the scrap yard in a post with no pictures.
