Oh boy another "Whats it worth thread" :wallbanging:

 

This is not a "What's it worth" thread.

 

It's a "What it was worth to me" thread.

 

Those are two entirely different things.

 

The most I've paid is $1,500, which was for the Bolens 1886-01 Forklift which was in pretty rough shape.

 

There are folks here that will tell you that I paid too much, and others that would say I stole it.

Well, let's see, if only I could remember from 40 years ago... A brand new MTD 990. The only GT I ever bought and don't still have. I sold it three years later. About four years ago, the man I sold it to, passed away. I knew he still had the tractor, but missed the chance to buy it back. He also had his old Jim Dandy that I got to drive when I was around 14 years old. What would I have paid to get those tractors or "what were they worth to me?"..... The man was like a second Father to me. Best estimate I can give is "priceless!" Probably would have sold every GT I own to pay for them.

The most we paid for a Cub Cadet was 500 dollars.  Now what we have invested in them after we bought them is a different story.....Probably have a total of 1500-2000 in most of our cubs.  More than they are worth IMO, but they are ours and not going to be sold anytime soon.

 

Dad bought a Speedex fully restored.  Beautiful tractor, I think he over paid on it at 1,200 dollars.  Although he sold it for more than that to a fella.

 

The Economy King we spent 800 on, and have put another 300 in it to get it ready useable.  I think we are in that one kind of deep as well....

Dad took my little truck this morning to go look at a round fender 110.  It's 300 bucks, I gave him 150 for my half of it.

I paid 1400 for a LGT145, but would have cost a lot more to rent equipment to complete the first project that I was able to finish with this.

Plus a lot of extras.

You sound like a shrewd shopper. If I give you a case of beer and an old watch that doesn't work, can you get me a Wheel Horse C160?  . . . or whatever?

 

 About four years ago, the man I sold it to, passed away. I knew he still had the tractor, but missed the chance to buy it back.

Do you know where the current owner lives? Keep a watch on him. Make an offer!

In a way, I want to know, and in a way I don't. I'm not sure they went to a collector.... May have been a scrapper, and I'm not sure I want to hear that.

It's an abandoned house on the property where we stay part time. My daughter owns ninety acres with another house that her family uses for vacationing.

The most was $1200 for an original Bush Hog JBI, Bush Hog ST-32 tiller, and a VERY rare Bush Hog S4242 3 point rotary mower.  An IH cat 0 cultivator came with the package too.

 In sub compact, I gave $2275 for the Massey 1010 I used to have.

I paid $5600 plus tax for a 1977 MF1655 with a 48" Provost 2-stage snowblower, MF4850 tiller, and 5' Brinly CAT 0 back blade on Jan 2/82. I passed on the Johnson loader and 54" mower that were part of the package for $400 each. The mower was too big for my yard amd I had a spare loader sitting at home.

 

I used and abused it for 22 years and intend to get it up and running for some more use and abuse. I have the wheels and tires now, and the big expenses that are left should only be a fresh battery and load the tires. There are a bunch of fiddly, low dollar items to clear up.
