Do you think this is worth the price?

    I found a 4-6 year old western wideout, the guy wants $3,000 for the blade, receivers, and controller? Suggestions, you think thats a fair price for this blade?

    I could see if he was selling the plow in the fall he could fetch 3000 for it with the right buyer. I would buy a new one next fall. If you pay 3000 for that one you are only 2600 from a new one with a 2 year warranty and no worries about worn parts or how it was treated. Offer the guy 2000 cash and see what he says. If he is desperate for money he may bite. Good Luck

    I dont think it seems to be that bad of a price. Sure for double you can have a new one but why? Sure a warranty is nice but lets be honest, nothing is going to really go wrong in the first two years and if it does it probably wouldn't be covered :rolleyes:.

    Did Western even make the Wideout 4-6 years ago? I thought they were only like 3 years old?

    I would drive to Chicago for it if he'd take $2500...
