    I cant believe what people are charging for used equiptment. I must be getting old and remembering the good old days when plows were still $3000 ten+ years ago. I just saw an ad on craigslist for an old fisher 7.5' blade welded to a skid steer plate for $1400! its just a plade iwth 2 pistons on metal. no frame, wiring, pump, control, and its old to boot for $1400. is this stuff really worth that? i constantly see old frame mounted plows and meyer hoop plows for $2000 too. who wants to deal with old plows that work like crap and are hard to hook up, especially at those prices.

    and i just sold my meyer MDII C8.5 plow for $2000 complete, did i give it way ?

    just my $.02

    I saw an add this summer of a guy selling a 7'6 Fisher speedcast belt driven setup for a 73-87 GM truck. He was asking $2,000 Firm. :eek:

    i understand people can ask what they want and what matters is what it sells for.....do they sell them for anything close to that? i saw an add all summer for a tow behind york rake for a quad. they wanted $750 firm....was relisted every few days till it was gone.

    makes me wonder....
