Hi, I am new to the forum.  I am helping my dad sell a 1976 Sears SS/ST 16 Tractor and implements.

 

Before I post it in the For Sale section, I thought I would get some advice.  Do most people buy local or are they open to shipping and / or freight options?

 

He has a well taken care of 1976 Sears SS/ST 16 Tractor and implements.  It was purchased in the suburbs of Chicago, and has several implements:

 

48" mower deck

Snowblower

3 point hitch

rear plow/discus

front push blade

 

I will get pictures this weekend.  What is the protocol on pricing?

 

Any other advice on this forum, that I should know?

 

Thanks,

 

Scott

I'm betting the snowblower attachment is a hot ticket item in Georgia,

Should be an easy sell, you might get lucky selling local, some members will travel for certain machines !

Prices vary by location and also if you sell everything together or sell them separate.

I am not up on Sears tractors and prices...I have an idea, but I will hold off right now while waiting for photos.

NAS,

Welcome to GTT

If the tractor is a single cylinder Tecumseh engine its a "ST" model.  If the engine is the Onan two cylinder its a "SS" model.   Easy to spot the difference as the Onan engine totally fills the engine compartment and looks like it was installed with a shoehorn.

Those Sears are well built tractors and to replace it with a new model as heavy duty as that one is would cost $5,000+.  Plus you'd have to look at another brand as Sears doesn't offer anything even close to the quality of that machine.

They are not rare by any means and are a using tractor much more than an antique or collector piece. 

I don't do values as that is mostly based on one persons opinion,  but if there is a chance you might need such a tractor in the future you should keep it or buy it from your dad based on the poor quality of lawn tractors made now-a-days.

Good luck!

48" mower deck

Snowblower

3 point hitch

rear plow/discus

front push blade

 

 

 

Welcome.

First is it an SS16 or ST16?

Decent shape running SS would run 350-400 in my area, ST a little lower 250-350

mowing deck 50-100

snow blower 50-100

3pt, 75-150

rear plow 50

disc  50

front blade 50-100

 

complete package, you may get 600-900 if you find the right person.

I'd think it'd be good for tossing hurricane debris.

Hurricanes have been about as rare as snow for them the last few years.

Welcome to GT Talk Scott. I would have to agree with Kris in that I would consider keeping the tractor if there's any possibility you could use it at a later date. Especially since you know the history and maintenance on it. If the tractor and attachments are in good condition, I think Tahoe's suggestion of $600 - $900 would probably be a reasonable asking price. Most people that are interested will want to negotiate on the price so keep that in mind when setting your price.  Good luck.
