Craiglist sure brings out the weirdos...sometimes we use CL to sell horses after we train them and the people you get out to look at them can be quite nuts. I have also been looking to buy a nice 4x4 tractor, older model of course if they are still in production today and the prices these people have them at are crazy. Now i went and looked at a 2005 farmtrac 555 and the guy was asking 10,700 for it. Now there are no farmtrac dealers in the usa anymore, only india from what i researched, making parts for this machine alittle harder to get. So i was telling the guy that parts might be ok to come by now, but 5 - 10 years from now parts may be very hard to get so when i offered 7500 and he wasnt interested i told him my max would be 8k that id be willing to spend. Well low and behold i seen that same exact tractor at one of the big tractor auctions in my area and it only brought 8k.....I bet he was wishing he took my offer cause after 10% sellers fee he is out 800 bucks..and if he bought it back then thats still 800 out of his pocket to pay the sellers fee lol..
If Farmtrac still had dealers in the usa then the price the guy was asking would be a good price for the tractor. (Some ford parts are interchangeable but he didnt know that so thats his fault for not knowing his own tractor)
