    Complete setup MM2 7.5 with dodge 2500 mounts, wiring, controller.

    I offered 1900 cash and they accepted, plan to resell it complete for 2500

    Good deal?

    $2,500 will be a good price to the end user come fall time. Right now I wouldn't give much more than a grand-$1,200 if it were me.

    I don't know if the mounts fit a 1500, but a 7.5 is a small plow for a 3/4 ton.

    You guys are way off. steel is way up. The prices of these plows are off the wall right now. I can understand all of you thinking about your rates because you havent been plow searching. But look at this link steel doubled in 18 months. They are getting top dollar for used right now. And that plow will be worth 3k in winter. 2500 is a deal now

    I know that no one will ever win an argument with you, but this is one thing I do for a living. If you are willing to pay that much for similar used plows, come on down and I will sell you as many as you'd like at your above pricing. Used plow sales are based on the time of year, period. I have NEVER seen steel prices affect the sale of a used plow aside form debating scrapping one or not. Even then I'm talking about $50-75 dinosaurs, not $3k plows. A used plow's value is based off of how much money it has potential to make, similar to rental property. I also do a lot of scrap business as well, so I'm sure you know more than I do with that too. I scrap cars on a daily basis.

    Obviously you deal in scrap cars. I have seen your last two for sale posts. The cost of steel has driven up the price of new plows. You can no longer get a 7.6 Fisher plow for 4k they are closer to 5k with tax. And thats not installed. Not sure how you run your business. But if if replacement cost is up over 700 from when you bought yours. Your used plow is now worth a few hundred bucks more. Money being made off a used plow has nothing to do with the price of a used plow either. Most people look for condition first then mechanical. And if replacement costs are up, So will used ones. Once again it shines through that you have no idea how retail works. You shoud stick to driving around looking for people that throw away washers and dryers so you can sell them for scrap. Must have had a hell of a time boosting them up into the lifted chevy

    LMAO. Can I ask you guys all what you do for a living? Because that way I can tell you how you don't have a clue what you're doing, how I could do it better, and how I would make way more money than any of you at it. Because you know, my useless opinion would be life changing for you.
