    i would not want it if they were giving it away and there is no telling what it might bring at auction if i had to gues i would think 100-800

    Ditto on what he^^^ said. The thing will probly be junk.. I mean the little diesel engine may still run great, but the rest of the machine will probly be toast.. I might buy it if I was gonna use it on my own property, but I wouldn't want to rely on it to butter my bread.. Far as price, I've seen them go at county auctions for $400 bucks, running.

    I took a look at it today. It's well used but seems to still be in good order. I think this was used at one of the golf courses.
    I would't want it as a main machine just for my own acerage and maybe a couple other large lots I cut. But I probably won't even go the the auction. I'll just save my pennies for something better down the road.

    Thanks for the input guys.
