    Are you buying or selling?
    Is the cutting edge wore off or bent or gouged in lots of places?
    Are there alot of non factory welds on it?

    More than you think. I suspect you'd do well to get it at $2,000.

    Maybe buy, blade is worn but still life in it, it is straight, and no nicks.
    Lots of after market handy work,LOL. Not a issue I can deal with repairs as needed.

    Thanks for the fast replies!

    I'm trying to understand how this one works. It looks like this one dumps off the back considering the long un-extended cylinders on the sides-or are those just connectors? The cylinder on the tongue regulates cut depth and then also gives pan clearance for dumping? Simple design that way but not sure how good it works.

    Good point. I can't figure it out either. there are no hydraulic hoses going to the side cylinders if that's what they are. Hmmmm.

    I don't believe the long side arms are hydraulic. The shorter front angled arms are hydraulic and push the longer arms to the rear which dump the pan. You just can't see the hoses in the front because of the angle and sign. At least that's what it appears to me.

    It seems to me to be a single cylinder that drives a cross shaft that then pushes the round link tubes to lower and cut the ground and then dump out the back. That white sign backing hides what may be most interesting linkage information. If it is truly a single cyl which it appears and would be the simplest construction, I would not expect it to go for too much. But any dollar figure that I give would be pure guess work.

    We used those a lot for waterways, terraces, etc. many years ago in south Georgia. Like an FEL, they don't dig into hard dirt very well (if at all), but a fairly small tractor can move a lot of loose dirt and spread it fairly smooth. Seems like we used Massey Ferguson 65 Diesels (50hp?) on dirt pans just a bit larger than that. The issue is not so much power as it is traction. If your tractor can push a FEL with a bucket that wide into loose earth, it should pull the pan as well.

    There must be something on the rear crossmember that catches the edge of the back gate when the pan is rotated and lifts it away from the pan so that the material can slide off the back of the pan.

    If the hydraulics and cutting edge are okay, there is not much left to worry about. I would probably pay $2,000 since you would spend nearly that much on parts alone to build one.

    It doesn't dump out the back. It rotates around the bearing you see on the side about 1 1/2 ft from from the rear. Cutting depth is handled by the 3pt. Fill it with dirt, then raise the front and drive it where you want. Remote hydraulics rotate the load upwards and it dump past the cutting edge.
