Preparing to sell a couple of Snappers, one painted Massy.  The Massey painted is new with 3 point and recently rebuilt rear hydraulic. It's in really good shape.  Second tractor is a Snapper parts tractor to me. Both are 1650s.  Parts tractor was running around 3 or 4 years ago and has been out of the weather.  It is lacking a battery but have a trade in battery. Three tires have issues but have a set of rear Carlises (Turfs) ready to put on.  Needed a needle valve and carb clean when running.   It would take between $100 to $150 to get it going I believe.  It has 540 PTO but was not working (easy fix I was told).  Also, have a rare Scoop Tote attachment for the 3 point.  Have Craftsman Haban snowblower modified to fit. Have section of drag harrow and homemade drag to level a drive.  Now the questions, Best to sell as a set? Don't want to sit on very long.  If not, how best to sell? I haven't the time to bring the parts tractor back.  Thanks, Reg

I would sell it as a package, seems to be the folks around here that are interested in buying the working tractor would like the parts tractor as well, and as it is the parts tractor isn’t worth a whole lot. Definitely get the good machine up and running first or you’ll loose a lot on it.

Thanks, the good one is already in real good mechanical shape and running well.  It had not been "rode hard and put away wet" as many of them had been.  Only considering selling because I may be moving out of state and not sure I want to move it.

Too busy this week, this was just a probing question.  Plan on sorting stuff out next week.  The running tractor is the one in my profile photo. Thanks. Reg
