Thanks for the statement about Cubs being higher in Florida. I wouldn’t want to say how much I paid for either I have based on what most folks on here pay for theirs. That being said that tractor has been for sale for that price since last year about this time. I saw it listed then with no pictures of tractor but never called or attempted to look at it. Take your time, it ain’t going no where.

Yes, the *asking* prices for Cubs in Florida is usually pretty high. Especially further south. Consequently, they tend to remain unsold for a long time. I suspect the actual sale prices are (somewhat) more reasonable.

It depends how bad you want it. If you want something right now, you’ll have to take what the market has available. My advice is to bide your time, don’t be in a rush. But do monitor Craigslist and whatever resources you prefer. Reasonable deals do come along, even in Florida, but they are rare and they get snapped up quick. Always be on the lookout, act fast if you find something worth checking out, and expect it to take a long time to find something.

Personally, I wouldn’t go over half that price for that tractor, even if I had the money. It might be worth a look if the owner is ready to deal, and he might be if it has been on the market that long. Otherwise, IMO, keep looking. You can do better. Especially if you are in north Florida, where Georgia and the rest of the farming south are within striking distance.
