My QT16 and the G14 in sale ads I knocked down to $200 for the works on those. That's BOTH tractors for that money, decks and one blade.  I want them OUT of here and get back my garage room. Bring trailer and Cash!  NE Indiana.

If you weren't across 3 states away I would have had them a month ago.  Just to much distance.

The only thing I seen sell lately on cl was a bolens 1886 with loader for 750.00
The old good stuff is sparse and when it shows up on cl it is expensive and it sits. I quit buying the old stuff, it don't sell unless you almost give it away and the guys who buy it part it out and ebay it.

YIKES?!     wishful thinking there.....

 

on Bolens.... practically nonexistent around these parts.... I did see a bolens snow blower at a sale I went to a few months ago that goes to the front of a tractor.... if I thought I could have made it fit my Ariens without too much hassle, I'd have gotten it.

 

weird... 2 brands from Wisconsin, seem to have skipped over Illinois in their heyday.

CL not working for me lately. A few messaged on QT, one was coming, then canceled. G14 nothing. Harley, nothing. Maybe I just don't know how to word them? I'm too honest? I have account, yet when trying to go back for changes, password I can't recall. So, made new ad. Ads also disappear in few days. Even me searching for Bolens brings up little. Couple new ones found depending on wording. DID find mine, but didn't havery password, so couldnot change. Why so hard?

Grumpy,

 

If the package were near me, I'd be all over it, if I could beat the other guys around here to it, that is!  I think they are a bargain!

 

Most people are not interested nor capable of fixing stuff, hence imho, the lack of interest.  I also recently found out that some of the garden tractor attachments are now made to fit quads.  Why buy a fixer upper old garden tractor when you might be able to convince mama to get a quad instead? 

 

Regards,

 

Doug

if only available across the pond as well. This hurts. It's a struggle to get anything decent. Anything that is on flea bay costs a fortune from the US and anything decent here goes for stupid money.

Yeah about CL.... a lot of times if I look for my ad on the same computer I listed on, I cannot find it.  Unless I go thru the activation Email.  

my big issue with CL is that I am between 3 CL areas and on the fringe of all 3.... everyone says "I am too far". I look first to see if someone has one like mine listed and always price mine below  theirs to start off with and still wind up being lucky to get 1/2 what I started at IF I deliver (without my saying in the ad how would anyone know that I can even do so?)  I mean I guess Id have to rent a Uhaul if I didn't have a pickup and trailer of my own or I can't seem to sell squat on CL. 

and then to top it off everyone wants their purchase delivered and demo'd on their lot for no extra cost... or they lowball me  like crazy without even having seen it... people are lazy.

Too far for me also. Would love to ad to the fleet! I am a C/list junky and prices are insane this year. $275 for a B&S Intek 16 hp engine!! Last year it was $100 and they had to bargain to sell it. $200 for a MTD tractor with no engine. Insane. $50 tractor at best. They think it is all gold plated......
