    Prices can be all over the place.
    The bad ones are when a person is asking 150% of "new". Although perhaps saving assembly work is worth a bit.

    It depends a lot on the person selling, and I guess buying too.

    I usually only buy stuff if the asking price is what I want to pay. Usually I don't bargain too much, and on occasion I've even rounded the price up as a buyer!

    I found a person with a want-ad asking for a very specific wheel that I had and didn't need, nor had anything that it fit on. I wrote back saying to send me an offer, and "lowballing" was OK.
    I got a reply today, but without an offer. Anyway, I have no doubt that we'll come up with a price that he can't refuse, and I'll have one less tire & wheel in my way.

    I have done really good on Craigslist but like everyone else you have to be patient and then jump when the deal is there...
    I bought 2 excellent air compressors for less than 50% of retail and a very nice 2 bottom plow and 5-1/2' disc harrow on there...
    I was lucky that I was within reasonable driving distance...
    I look on there everyday...

    42" Woods rotary cutter was one of my good finds. Also, a set of new take-off wheels/tires for less than a new set of tires for my truck.

    Glad I am not the only one. If there is something in particular I am after I will use searchtempest and search the whole state

    Nearly new jd lx5 = 600

    I've bought some deals off of CL but you have to check it often and move to get it. I've seen some good deals on tractors lately in my area. I figured the economy had people selling.

    I keep finding things on there that I wasn't looking for,but just can't pass up- I just got back with 260' of 1/0 welding cable ($200)
    Last year I lucked into a brand new Ruggerini 15hp diesel motor for $250-haven't decided what to use it on yet,but couldn't pass it up.
    Most the time someone beats me to the good stuff.
