I have realized that I am too old for a rebuild project.

 

I have an 1855 snapper that runs great.  It is time to rebuild the hydraulic cylinders and a few other things like ball joints for the steering.  I have the snow blower, mower deck, 3 point hitch.  New decals for whenever i would have had time to paint it.  I have never personally used the mower deck during the 15 years I have had it and it has been stored in my garage all that time. 

 

I have no idea what it would be worth.  I plan to put it on craig's list this month.  Any idea what would be a price range.

 

Sabe

I have no clue what it is worth, but that would be a sweet package deal with those attachments.

Where at in Minnesota? Prices run a bit higher around the metro and southeast, usually a little lower on the north and west end of the state.

How many hours are on it? That will make a bit of difference. Also, any work done to the Onan?
Not much listed on CL right now that is comparable.

This one is priced decent, it will be a hard sell at this time of year with only a mower deck:

This one is overpriced for just having a snowblower. But since it has a cab, it may sell if the first snowfall is windy and cold. It's been for sale for 8 months, I think:

I don't know what to say here, other than good luck:

I have seen 3 others listed cheaper in the last year that sold quickly, but they were smaller models and did not include attachments other than a deck. They ranged from $250-$750.

Thanks for the information Cat.  You must have spent quite a bit of time searching this out.  It helps me a lot.  Based on that information,  I'm hoping to get at least $1,400.00 or a resonable offer.

 

 

The tractor

Snow blower

Mower

3 point hitch (on the tractor)

Brand new wiring harness

Brand new ignition switch

Complete set of decals (for restoration project)

Fiber glass top for a cab

Wheel weights (on the tractor)

 

Original Onen motor that runs great.

Needs new seals in the cylinders
