    Default Used Tiller Pricing

    I looked online at a local dealer's used equipment. They had a Landpride 1558 tiller. If my understanding of the numbers is right, this tiller is medium duty 58/60 inch.
    I called and asked the price. Despite the fact that the unit was pretty rust and looked well used they told me 1500. I told them I thought that was far too much for a tiller in that condition. They told me it had all new tines. To me new tines means the unit has a lot of use on it...

    So I guess my question is, how much should a used 60 tiller cost used, and are you just better off buying new?
    I told the guy I could buy a brand new King Cutter for that kind of money.

    Thanks for your input.

    Regards,
    Chris

    Tractor house has new ones for about $2600 and a used one for $900. It all depends on how many rocks the unit has been pounded over and how the shafts and bearings have taken it.

    I bought a used Kuhn EL-32 (58") tiller for $950 from a local add. The guy was asking $1200 but he thought a bunch and finally took my offer.

    The RTR1558 is a reverse tine tiller, so It makes sense that this would be more expensive used. Also the one in the ad seems to have little use. That said I think the asking is still too much.

    I think that is a fair price for a dealer. If it was a private sale then it should be lower. You may be better off buying new, depending on how you plan on using it.

    Thanks BT,
    I think based on what I have seen looking for used that a new tiller is the best option for me.... I see a lot of equipment that is beaten to a pulp and people think it's worth 90% of the price of new.... I suspect that dealer gave someone 500 bucks for that on a trade... and now they want 1500... I can buy from Everything Attachments and get free shipping and I think save the sales tax.... The Phoenix tillers look very nice.

    Regards,
    Chris

    landpride.... i dont know what it goes for new but my guess is twice that 3-4K new. so used half off? better than most used impliments at dealers. I bought my rual king 60" tiller for 2000 about 7 years ago or so... I think new versions are 2500.

    so 1500 for a used landpride seems reasonable...

    Hey Steve,

    Th prices I've gotten on a Landpride 60" was in the 2800 range. Don't get me wrong, the Landpride equipment is excellnt stuff, I own several LP implements.
    For the small amount of tilling I'd do a year I think a KK or Phoenix would do just fine and a few bucks more than the used LP1558.
