I posted a craigslist site for a gk960 a few weeks ago for $900. It sold before I got around to calling about it. Here it is again I am not even going to consider it now. but someone is looking to make a dollar or two.

Broke it so that doubles the price? He watches American Pickers too much. Good Luck, Rick

I hope that's not the same guy I spoke with, he told me it had been rolled by the previous owner! It was in horrible condition and missing quite a lot, the heater does not work nor is complete and the cab has almost no glass left. This is laughable and with no original attachments seeing as the deck is missing the wings and the blower is a hodge podge of an engineering miracle, I think he will be owning this for a while. Unless anyone wants a 2000 pound paperweight at nearly a dollar a pound!

Could have been a parts machine and it is a shame, I thought the owner I spoke with would come to his senses and sell it to me for 500. I have all the body panels and a spare cab deck and plow, but now the price is so high it isn't even worth negotiating!

Keep an eye on it Eric.  If he gets tired of looking at it he will start to drop the price down to a more reasonable range.  Sooner or later they all do.

Sure was he offered it for 700 the first time and that was steep for the life it has had. The trans is also screwed from what I understand. It just seems a bit shady that the price doubles after he broke it, but to each his own. I guess we should send him to epay with the black one they can hang out for another few years and hope that a miracle happens!

I check Craigslist everyday for Champaign. I am curious as to how far he lowers it before he gives up or sells it.

I would like to have one but not one that Is already broke. I'd probably have to sell the Elec trak to but one though.
