I just bought one for 60.
Hope this doesn't belong to someone here, but I was shocked at the price difference vs what I was expecting.

Does that mean I can  start listing my Sears implements at those pricea also?  :D  

That seems pretty high. New paint must be expensive in Pa.

I recently purchased a Sears tractor and several implements that now look like a gold mine!!!   

I didn't get a middle buster but don't think I want one for that price.

By the way, Alan we missed you at Ball Hollow last weekend.      Rick

Prices are getting silly all over in this hobby. Another pet peeve of mine is people calling Sears 3 point stuff Cat.0 It isn't ! Sears 3 point stuff has smaller mounting area than Cat.0. More and more seem to be doing it and the water gets muddier for those not well versed on Sears stuff.

I have noticed prices in my neck of the woods getting extremely high. I am not to angry as I am 8n the selling phase of my rotation. The main problem is finding a way to sleep at night if I sell at these prices! I don't want to feel like I got over on someone but I also don't want to feel like someone made off with the kings portion of the deal! Market forces at work I suppose. We will see what happens soon but I think I would rather sell to some of you fellas at low prices and know that the things I have cared for will remain in good hands with folks that value the hobby.

Unless you deceive someone or put a gun to his head sleep well.

 

By definition when something sells it's worth more to the buyer than the seller - otherwise there wouldn't be a transaction.

I have been watching the market on this stuff closely for the last 3 years . That is typical pricing these days . I have collected a few of these attachments but have not paid up at the high end of the pricing. And have found some pretty good deals on some of them .

Hell I can't find anyone to give me $225 for a good running tractor that this piece goes on :wallbanging:

Asking' and getting' are two different things.

I was Minnesota's largest swap meet of the year yesterday. They could rename it 'drag something from the trees and get $250, find it in a barn and get $500!'

Everything goes through these cycles. Why Sonny, I remember back in the day, when I was just a puppy riding a Harley chopper, you could find an old Harley knucklehead in a barn for $100. Then as the years went by that dried up and H-D started selling bikes with the Chopper Look for newbies that had more money than skill.

 

Maybe MTD will start selling retro mowers!
