most you've spent on a GT? We've had a few threads on here about the inflated price of tractors. How much have you been willing to give? My high number was $900. Got in a bidding war on ePay for a Wheel Horse with several attachments.

I just got a Dig-it 188T(ingersoll 6018)without an engine for $1850..and I feel I got a great deal on it..I could double my money in no time just like it sits...I got the 1st one for $1500 with a bad engine and doubled my money on it a few months back.

I am now looking at a Terramite for $3000,it needs stabilizer cylinders and I can make a few bucks on it..GT and such bring good money around this area for some reason.

well..... after my dad passed away I paid $ 1000.00 for my dads Homelite T-16 H with front blade, mower deck, yard trailer (home made), chains and a rear lift kit for a Simplicity. Bought it from my Step Mom.  Next most expensive was $ 350.00 for a Homelite T-15 H with front blade, mower deck and rear lift, plus travel expenses to MO. and back.  Nearly spent $500.00 on a 916 Duetz Allis but it was gone when I got there. Someone got there after I told the guy I was on the way for the 300 mile round trip. Wasn't a happy camper.                                                                                                          Roger.

$1500 for my 214,I'm guessing at least 25 years ago.Got it from the local deere dealer who had taken it in on trade when the original owner decided to upgrade. What makes it better is the fact I was not into GT's at the time but just need a good dependable rider and was on good terms with the dealer.

Difficult to say how much I would pay for something, as we all know it is location, condition, how bad you want it, extras that come with it, etc., etc.

 

I did pay $600 for a Wheel Horse 654 and several (WH) attachments, but most have been in the $100--$250 range.

I once paid $500 for a Plastic King with trans and clutch missing! Way too much for that. Had Huge big tires on back and body pretty good shape is about it. It is now much changed into my "Grumpy King" two seat Butt Buggy and takes up space in garage, never gets used really. I have paid $1300 for a newer Power King and attachments and that is one of biggest amounts. Have done $850 on a Big White that was nice, but needed work to run correct. Bought lots of stuff in $100 to $200 range, mostly Wheelhorse, Power King or Sears stuff.

The most I've paid for one is 400 and that was for a Agco Allis 918 that needed/needs some minor work. Most I've paid in the 100-200 range.

I self-imposed a $500 limit on any single garden tractor purchase right from the start. 

Good thing is I got into GTs back in the 1990s when that would buy most any GT

P.S.: This topic is waste of Bandwidth! :( :shoot2:

Okay, sorry to have offended. I'll go back to looking at pictures of Virginia and dreaming.

Paid $650. Came with blower, chains, wheel weights, and deck. 497 hours when I got it. Now around 549. Been a great machine. Made last winter enjoyable. That thing can move some serious snow in little time. We had so much, it was like mowing every week.

Yes those are Deere weights but they look awfully good power red.
