I agree with BD, but would probably start at $1500.00. I am on a budget and try to get things as cheaply as I can. Also, and more importantly, I like to DICKER
, and dickering
is a large part of the fun of buying a tractor. You will probably be surprised at what he may do. Also, leave him your name and number, tell him ifn he changes his mind, to give you a call. Wait a week and see what happens....
That is what I did with Granny. He wanted $1250.00 which to me was way, way too much, I offered him $500.00, he said no. Gave him my number and waited a couple of days. I was willing to go to a max of $800.00. After a week, he called me and said what about $900.00, I said it was still too much especially since there were no implements or anything included, and I told him call me when he had thought it over some more. Now, I really wanted the tractor, and had some misgivings about my strategy, but sure enough he called me back in 2 days and said ok $800.00, but what will you give me for the generator???? So, I said total $850.00 and he jumped at it!!!!
Sometimes it pays to dicker
