Selling 2006 Homesteader 6, what should I ask for it?

    I'm selling a 2006 6'8" Homesteader Plow which I had on my 2002 Chevy S-10. Great Plow, just moving up in size. I have removed everything from the truck, have the complete mounting hardware, wiring package, etc. I purchased it in August 2006 for an installed price of $3,100.00, including the option of the hand held fish stick control. Mold board has no damage at all, as I used this plow a total of 9 times on very light snows. Unit is rust free, stored inside my pole barn.

    I'm buying a new 7'4" Homesteader for my 2005 Toyota Tacoma, and with the fish stick it is going to run me $3,700.00 total which includes the install.

    My question is, how much should I list the complete plow package that I took off of the S-10 for? I have the original bill of sale, and of course all the instruction info, and owners manual, etc. On a rating scale of 1 being the best, and 10 being the worst in condition, I will rate the total package as a 2, because only a factory plow would have no usage on it, and that is the only way it could still be a 1 *my opinion* Any thoughts would be great, because at this point I have no idea, and I don't want to get ripped off and sell it to cheap.

    Try $2600 and when someone looks at it tell them the price of a brand new one and then tell them how much the fish stick upgrade cost. People seem to like the over $200 savings when buying a used plow compared to a new plow.
    Good Luck

    Thanks for the advice

    Mark, sounds good to me, I will start it at $2,600.00 like you said, I figured it had to be worth over $2,000.00, but I didn't want to waste money advertising it at a price that was to high. Thank you for your response. Have a great weekend ahead, and think SNOW for this Winter.
