    Been watching for a 3 pt 4 ft wide dbl gang disk for my 400 for about 10 years now. They're either priced way too high or they're too far away. I'd like to have one for straightening up the sides and back of our 3 acre parcel where it meets what used to be dad's fields. It's always a pain in the butt to mow the first couple rounds at the boundaries and there's always big dirt clods strewn about in the grass. I use my 54 front blade to scrape them back into the field. The farmer that rented dad's land for 20 years before I sold it was fussy and did a nice neat job but the new owner has a bunch of yahoos working for him that can't drive straight. And they turn the outside corners so wide at the back I sometimes wonder if they're getting paid by the mile. The first year was actually not too bad but it went downhill from there.

    My experience is there is no set price on any of this older equipment. No book value. And little value can be placed on what "something went for in this area". If you want to sell it, it's worth what somebody will pay. Best to list as "no reasonable offer refused" but for whatever reason some sites don't like this. They insist on pricing the item as a condition of posting. In my case I'm always willing to discuss prices and I expect to negotiate when buying or selling.

    Expect to hear "wish I were closer" or something similar that is an often seen response when you post with a fair price and I can't figure out what that is suppose to mean. Maybe the guy just wants to live where I do? (I wonder if they post that when browsing a dating site?) I've offered to deliver for free and had no response. Not that I'm desperate but its part of the hobby. Traveling around the country is one of our favorite pastimes in retirement. If the gas, wear and tear on the truck is paid for, I'm usually happy. And I do enjoy meeting folks with similar interests. Shipping is said to be the worse part of getting rid of this stuff, but I have come to doubt that a bit. It's a pain in the butt getting these things to the shipper but cost really isn't an issue if the transaction is fair. And the buyer almost always gets it dropped off in their driveway. Whatever you buy, shipping is part of the cost and somebody has to pay for it.

    Next you hear (Scored! or stole) from folks who recently bought an item. I would suggest they hold off with the excitement until the day they sell it comes and somebody else "scores" at their expense. It's pretty childish to make a statement like that especially if the person you scored on was simply trying to be fair and let it go to a more useful purpose. If you "scored" at the expense of an elderly widow, well most of won't share your excitement. I've given away an item for free and seen a post similar to that!

    Just keep in mind that these sites are really intended to help folks with similar interests. Not to make profits.

    Done. Guess it's time to join "ARMY" and take a nap.

    This is really an interesting thought, I mostly dabble in vintage motorcycle stuff but suffice to say i buy and sell lots of odd stuff on craigslist/ FB/ etc. every year and i've noticed this before. Someone has no idea what something is worth but once they hear one person telling them its gold they clam up and refuse to listen to reason.

    I agree with Joe 100%, so many people turn a simple business transaction into bloodsport, its ridiculous. Like somehow you're 'winning' or 'loosing' and you have to win the transaction or you'll just let the damn thing rot in your yard out of spite. If thats what brings ya happiness so be it, for me once i'm ready to get rid of something i usually just want it gone with as little headache as possible.
