Right now, there are 2 Kubota, 3 JD, a NH, and a Branson all listed for unbelievable deals, all under $1500, I should go buy them all, resell them at wholesale price, and not have to work for the next year.....
Here's one not as silly as some. But still, no bargain.
A VN refurb 1970's Yanmar that arrived so long ago that the re-paint job has faded off. Its oil filter is still painted with the black paint applied during the refurb 10~15 years ago. And with the cost-cutting in those refurb shops, they may have re-used the oil filter that was on it when it came in.
So this is listed as: "...International Harvester Rolling Mulcher/cultipacker - $14,900" I've never seen one so I clicked. Good photos BTW so maybe should not be in this thread but WOW it looks so cool and the tractor, MF-1800, is a thing of beauty, too. Is it worth that much?!?!?!
Old and tired--that's likely from the 1970's and if still available would likely be $40,000+. Brillion still makes them and I've seen folding Brillions in the $50,000 area. They are called cultimulchers. A "cultipacker" would not have the tines in the middle.
His is likely worth it but at a farm auction I could see that selling for $8,000 to $9,000. A dealer would likely as maybe $12,000 or $17,000. These days, the big ones are a hard sell. They are wonderful tools for preparing seedbeds and are often pulled behind cultivators. I did a thread on rebuilding a Brillion cultimulcher a couple years back and not too hard to find.
