Woods L59 Mower Value

Postby ricky racer » Mon Aug 26, 2019 8:49 pm

What's the value of a very nice, almost looks like new, Woods L59 mower worth? I've got one and I'm thinking of selling it. I'm just looking for a fair price for both buyer and seller. Thanks.

Is it 1 for standard cub or 1 that will fit on a cub with Fasthitch?

L 59 is left hand rotation, if you have the mounting brackets for a cub, you would have to reroute the belt to reverse the rotation. you need a woods 59 which is right hand rotation for a Cub

Ricky, what does it fit?

I always thought that my Cub had a Woods L59. But I just checked and it is a 59-C-2.

You're right it is a Woods 59 not an L59. It came off of a regular Cub. I snapped a couple of pictures this evening. It hasn't been cleaned up yet but it should shine up real nice. It looks a lot better than the pictures show.

Hi,
The mower looks good in the pics Ricky. :)

Below are 3 listings from Rudi's manuals with L, it shows them for LoBoys.

Woods L59 C-1 for IH Cub Lo-Boy
Woods L59 C-2 for IH Cub Lo-Boy
Woods L59 CF-2 for IH Cub Lo-Boy with Fast Hitch

Below is info from Woods. Some models of L mowers fit other models of tractors.

What's is it worth ? In my area, it would fall in the 350 dollar range, just can't get big dollars anymore.

I think KY Cub has a dollar figure that is pretty close to a Michigan price. I'l probably advertise it a bit higher to end up at KY Cub's number.

I am assuming you've got all of the other parts for attaching and running, just not in picture.
I believe mine is a similar age model and l can tell you l replaced the belt and side skids this year, and those parts alone were close to $300.
I would start at $500 and negotiate accordingly.
From what l've observed on here most people use their cubs for either mowing or snow removal. Since Woods doesn't make these any more and they are such good "finishing" mowers, l'd jump on it at $500 in that conditon if l was in need.
Why is there never enough time to do the job right, but always enough time to do it over. :?:
