    Sorry, you read me all wrong. I hate cutting grass, and will do whatever I have to in order to avoid it. An annual brush hogging, or making hay, I may be able to live with.

    I think it is worth $4500 - $5500; at least it would be in Ohio. you can get aftermarket loaders installed for $3500 - $4000. You can also keep your eyes open for a nice rear finish mower; now it isn't a bare tractor.

    I would not sell it for $3000 - $4000. That is Garden tractore prices and it isn't a garden tractor. As some have said; just need the right buyer. This spring someone would buy it and put a rear tiller or rear finish mower on it.

    I paid $7500 for my 2012 GC2400 with only a FEL. Feel like that was a decent deal. If you go spend $4k on an aftermarket loader you have a decent tractor. Then buy a rear finish mower; cheaper.
    One year my dad bought my mom a mood ring, when she was in a good mood it was blue... when she was in a bad mood it made a red mark upside my dads head!

    Dnw64,

    No, I didn't read you wrong, I was just stating that many of us love the idea of an engine running and a big pile of yard to cut with it. . . But often can't because life is too hectic or our work is too challenging. I had no doubt you don't have that secret desire.

    I get you now.

    My down-time dreams revolve around riding my (pedal) bike or cruising in my Boxster. I'm fortunate that I generally get to do both more often than many.
