I have a man that does not use his implements any more and I told him I wanted to buy what he has. He has a set of cultivators front and back and a Middle buster and may more. Does any one know How much the cultivators and the middlebuster are worth, I don't want to pay too much.
Cultivators in Wisconsin bring $200 to $250. ( That is how much mine sold for at my auction last year) We never see middle busters here so I would have no idea. I assume both set of impements are NOT the single point fast hitch.
I personally would never spend over $100 for cultivators. They can be bought pretty cheap sometimes, $25 to $50.
30 + tractors including 2 French Super Cubs, French Cubs, 1963 Industrial Cub, 1955 Cub Highcrop etc...German and French built IH tractors and some bigger IH tractors. Of course I have about 20 IH trucks and an IH refridge in the Shop.
Cultivators in our "neck of the woods" usually bring $150.00-200.00/set. That buster should be worth $75.00-100.00. If he is not using them, $200.00/250.00 should get the lot. Make sure they are complete. Keep us posted

Well around here a good complete set of Cub-144 Cultivators are worth between $450.00 and $500.00. I would be ecstatic if I could have found one for $100.00.
It really doesn't matter what the value is worth in an area away from you. What makes the difference is:
1. Do you want/need one?
2. Are there lots available? If not, then grab it as quickly as you can.
3. What is it worth to you to have one?
4. Based on #3, what do you think is fair? I would probably start at 50% of what it is worth to you and go from there until you strike a bargain. Just be judicious and take your time. No need to rush it.
As far as middlebusters - not common here - no one I know has ever seen one.
But again, the 4 rules apply to almost any implement or tractor for that matter.

hERE IN CENTRAL CAROLINA THEY ARE ASKING $350-$400, BUT I DID HEAR OF SOME GOING AT AUCTION FOR $90. IF'N I HAD BEEN THERE HE WOULD HAVE PAID MORE. AFTER THE SAME AUCTION HE WANTED $400 FOR SAME CULTS. I THINK HE WAS A DEALER
