    Only way you can really beat that is if it was free! Nice find & good job on the restoration!

    highly doubt it...it was in pretty rough shape when i got it...and he had a lolad of spare western parts he gave me also, hoses pinks bolts etc....seemed like a homeowner had baught it the motor went and he didnt know how to fix it, and he no longer had a truck for the plow

    You offered the guy $250, and he countered with $200??

    I wonder if he's got anything else for sale... Those are the best guys to buy stuff from! :dizzy:

    Come on you have more than $150 into it. the cutting edge looks new and it has curb guards...thats like $150 alone.

    Either way good buy for $200. You should see what I just sold for $200. 6'6" western with no motor, rusty as hell

    EDIT: maybe it doesnt have curb guards, my computer makes it look like it does though

    great buy. People around here will still try to get the highest for a junk plow. Looked at an old western guy wanted like 1200 for it looked like worth maybe 500.

    cuttin edge is prob about 75-80% just with a fresh coat of paint and some new bolts, and no curb gaurds, just had a little welded onto each side to "make" curb gaurds because sumwhere along the line some1 ground into the mulboard and didnt want to make it worse
