Would anyone have any idea what a 4 foot Haban flail mower would have sold for when new?

In 1972 the 51401 4' Haban flail mower sold for $514.20, and weighed 415 lbs.  Shipping was not included.

If you run that number through an inflation calculator, you will see that $514.20 in 1972 is the equivalent of $2,996.67 today.

Well I can see that I sold the last one to cheap. I got another one all restored but not planning on selling for a while.
