    Default craigslist finds

    I picked up a 8 foot cultipacker for $100 today. I was pretty happy about it. The guy said he had about 2 dozen calls in the first 2 hours. I was about ready to bite the bullet and buy a 5' for $500 too.

    Wondering some of the deals you all got from craigs?

    Every week I find several rusty, beat up implements priced 80% or more of new.

    And trailers made from water pipe and bed frames for $600-800.

    Keep watching. I find lots of good deals all the time. 5' King Kutter in great condition $450. A Big Ox 4' box blade (I think), anyhow it was $300 and had all the rippers and hardware.

    I look through the ads twice a day. Yeah, it's a bad habit...

    Use SearchTempest to search a wider area for what you're looking for:
    SearchTempest Online Classifieds Search - All the Classifieds. One Search.

    Just be patient. A lot of stuff shows up as long as you're willing to wait a bit. And keep looking.

    My biggest problem is a few brief moments of indecision, in which the best deals are snapped up before I decide that I really want it.

    Used equipment can be a bit beat up though And sometimes sellers wait till you arrive with the vehicle and trailer to let you know that it needs a little "tune-up".

    I have had great luck selling and buying on CL. Just bought a agrimetal bw300 PTO blower the other day for $1200 bucks. The paint is a little faded but other than that is in great shape. New they are about $4500 without tax.
    Then I just sold my JD 145 lawn mower on CL for $1400. It was in great shape but I couldn't believe the amount of calls I had just because it had green paint. People didn't even really now the difference between it and other JD models.

    That seems to be about 90% of craigslist in my area. There are a few good deals out there though. But you have to act fast on them.

    If you dont check c-list for a few days, there is no point in looking past the first page cause all the good deals are snagged up and everything after the first page is overpriced.

    Yep, if you see a deal don't hesitate to call. I picked up a 3 point 16" single bottom trip plow with coulter last spring for $100. I check the farm and garden section daily for items on the want list. If I'm heading to another area I'll also check that areas CL for possible finds. Seems like sooner or later what I'm looking for pops up.

    Have to say CL has been good to me. 4 ft tiller $500, one row cultivator $50, manure spreader $300, trailer $50. 100 gal fuel tank $80. And sold my Subaru with 300,000 miles in one day for way more than I thought I would get.
