GOOD afternoon my GTT brothers
I have an almost new 14 bushel MCS with a power flow unit for a 54 mmm deck from a 1025r I have everything but the puly that goes on a blade spindle .The bags hang from a bracket mounted where the tow hitch would go . just wondering what it worth ?
I have a 60 deck and from what I see the bag holder may be the only part compatible.
can any one shed some lite on what may fit and what the power flow is worth ?
thank you

Attached is the quote I received last year on the 3 Bag MCS for the 1025R w/54" deck. I'm assuming that is what you have. So that will tell what you the new selling price is.

It also lists the kit numbers for the mounting hardware. JD Parts online has a utility within it whereas you can enter a part number and it will search what models that part is used on. So, with any luck, these sales kits will be active part numbers and from that, you can identify what model they're used on and include that in your sale listing.

You're on the right track and it is good marketing. So often folks just list items with no part numbers and maybe what they know it came from. This really limits your market. I recently sold some rear rims I had. I found the part number, included that in my Craig's List posting and then utilizing the above method, identified all the models they were utilized on--which was quite a few. I had multiple buyers within days. In comparison, there were other postings on Craig's List for the same rims, but no part number or model listing on what they fit. Even though those rims were priced less, mine sold and theirs hasn't.

I went with the MCS20 rather than the 3 Bag MCS as I have a place to dump and with that, much handier than the 3 Bag. If I was having to transport what I collected, the 3 Bag MCS would likely be a better choice.

Thank you , you always seem to have a very good reply and I appreciate that , this really has been a great site I wish I knew about it sooner I only learned of it when I bought my 1026r which was a lot of money I thought ,after many 300 and 400 series tractors. but after removing snow with the FEL with home made edge tamers I realized that it really wasn't to much money afterall and next year with the blower and cab I'm going to wish for snow like I did with my first 318 30 years ago
thanks again
