not much interest

I have not had much interest in this post on CL. What do you all think? Do I have to separate it? I have had a few people asking for separate items but no one is really interested in the package. Which kind of surprises me. Once you have a tractor you need all the stuff. Maybe they already have the tractor but want to build on what they have. I dunno. Thoughts?

I got 6500 for a similar 600hr package a couple years ago. It just had the 47 blower and a bagger.

If I separate a package I won’t sell anything until the tractor buyer decides what they want and don’t want.

Have you tried FB marketplace? I despise facebook but when it comes to selling, it does very well. You're probably on the high end of your target market as far as price. Most people don't have access to that kind of cash and if they do, they'll buy new or at least newer.

Just sayin

+1 on Facebook marketplace. I had my Harley on Craigslist for about two weeks without a call until I put it on Facebook Marketplace at my wife's suggestion. I was shortly deluged with calls and sold it in two days.

I would sell the loader for $2500 then the rest for $4500. That'll get you your $7000, and it'll probably move faster. Not many people are looking to spend $7k on a gt with a loader, but lots of people are looking for a gt to mow and plow/blow snow. And lots of people with 425/445/455 are looking for a 40 loader.

I got $3800 for a my nice 445 with mower deck and 54 plow. You shouldn't have any issues getting your price if you split the loader off.

Agreed......Split the loader off and since they are no long available, start at $2,900, don't give that away because they are a sought after item. .....Plus Craigslist seems like a lot of bottom feeders reside there........Hate to say that because I spend time on CL occasionally.....:hide:

There are at least (3) 445's in my area for between $4,500 and $6,500 and they remain on month after month. The guy with the one at $6,500 insists he is going to hold his price and I bet he has had it on for nearly a year.................

I despise WasteBook and its "founder", but from what I hear, its the place to sell things.........

I have a Harley and a 455 with all of the attachments and now a low hour D140 I really should sell as I don't need nor use any of them. I just hate the thought of being stroked around, plus I don't like people coming to my house that I don't know.

Thanks for all of the replies. I know $7000 was a bit of a dream but I wanted to throw it out there. I have gotten a few calls but no lookers yet. I will give Facebook a try and adjust the price a bit. I'd hate to separate it cause of the wrenching involved. To do it right I have to sell the wheel spacers and hydro pressure relief with the loader. As that buyer really should have them. I was hoping for $2750 for the loader if I took it off and then $4,000 for the tractor and snowblower. I know it has high hours.

Wheel weights don't have to go with loader. You need them for the blower too.

You could make the buyer of the loader swap the pressure relief valve if he wants it. You could even make him take off the mounting brackets. That would also let him test out the loader before buying.

What year is the 445? Has the camshaft been replaced if it's plastic? If it has a metal camshaft, that'd be good to mention in your ad.

It does not have wheel weights. It has wheel spacers behind the wheels to allow the chains to clear loader brackets. I wrote it incorrectly before. I can take them off easy as I will have the tires off to remove the loader brackets. I could always just leave the pressure relief valve.

Yes, metal camshaft. It is a 1994 I did not mention that cause it is old.

Facebook for the win

Ok all, Thank you.

I put the 445 on Facebook last night and have 8 people contact me interested today. Apparently craigslist is over and people only use facebook market place now. Good to know. Keep that in mind if you ever want to sell anything.

I just did the same you are doing with my 318, loader, blower, mower, blade, etc...
Be patient is the best advice I can share... I was just getting ready to clearance sale it, and people came along that knew what I was selling and paid fair money.

Diddo ... but.. keep both up... FB marketplace sold my tractor etc.. Craigslist sold the loader..

What was said here ^^^ Hopefully you sell the loader first (pain moving a loader without the tractor unless you have other means of moving heavy stuff)

Craigslist is far from over, I have had great success with it... Seems like the 35-40 and older crowd is using CL and younger ones looking at FBM

Good luck with sale.. its a great package.

It is sold. I ended up selling all as a package. It made me very happy not to have to separate it.
