    I only have experience with 2-3 examples around me, but it seemed to be in the 20-22% less than what the dealer would hope to sell it for. So a tractor they would resell for $11,000 would get a trade in offer of $8600-$8800. I got that info from folks trying to sell me their CUT. I admit the dealers have to make money to stay in business, but that's would be a bit too much loss for me, so I don't blame these guys for trying to sell it on their own. It may be quite different in your neck of the woods, tho.

    I pretty much agree with Fred above. A dealer isn't going to tie up his money unless he can make a few grand on the process. So, a trade in is basically a wholesale deal. For the loss of funds, you gain instant gratification and the deal is done.

    If you sell yourself, you can likely split the difference between trade in (wholesale) and what the dealer can get (dealer retail).

    You'll pocket $1500 to $2000. Now, you'll have to work for that money, it isn't "free". You'll have the inconvenience, leg work and effort of doing the sale yourself. You will have to decide which way you want to go.

    I would guess low 20's. The best you will do is retail (The price you or the dealer would sell it for minus 1000). Some dealers don't want used stuff so they will take that retail price and subtract 3000-4000. I would try emailing Barlows.
