I've been seeing $1600 ss12's and $1000 16/6 tractors, but this one made me laugh

Kind of like saying I have a  saddle horse for sale that would be a reliable safe ride if his leg wasn't broken.

Don't get what you are saying?  Bet one could get for $50 and still be good, even with a few fixes.  BUT, you are the same guys that would buy that famous Deere 80 or what-ever other number cart all rusted to H***, but having a BRASS TAG on it  for only $400 or more???  AND, in same condition as this one??  You guys are starting to P me off with this post! :mad2: :smilewink:

This one got me rolling:

A JD 214 (restored, with attachments) for the low price of $3,600. It's no surprise I pulled a Gary and got out of the hobby.

Likes to use the word "rare'.  No brass tag on that cart!

there is a ZERO percent chance I would buy a completely rusted out John Deere cart with any kind of tag for $400.
That goes for almost any other cart.
The only JD cart I've ever owned was Free to get it out of there and it was in great shape.

I was just tickled at the tone of the ad in regards to the issues. Like working them in slow will make them less troubling.
I agree that the cart is still worth a little if it's really a Sears, but I didnt post this to argue what it is worth... just sharing the sellers uniquely optomistic perspective on his product.
