I think you're selling it short, Nate. Unless you just want it gone quick, I think a $700 - $750 ad would probably sell fast enough - at least around here. But then again, you are in BFE - lol

yeah man the 600 tag is to get someone out of the city to spend 30 bucks in gas to come get it and get a better machine for cheaper than they would in the city

Am I missing something?,come on you guys the newer craftsman's are nothing but MTD clones,they are pretty much what you see at wal mart,I'm thinking $500 would kill the thing but maybe they go for more than that then they do around here.People know about the cheap newer craftsman's around here and you can't give them away.Trust me nate i'm not slamming your tractor but come on dude you worked on it,you know how it's made they are MTD's with a craftsman sticker LOL.Heck man to prove it a lot of the MTD decks now fit a lot of the craftsman's To all of you MTD guys not putting your brand down either but you all know MTD's ain't what they once was either : ) I'm just saying $750-$800 ?? I'd defimnitly would have to keep it people would laugh at me around here for even trying to sell that thing for that lol.Just an example I put the pumpkin out in the front yard this week,(it's a busy street) everyone that drives by slows down or stops but no takers yet,I 'm just thinking $750-$800 for that craftsman and the pumpkin for $1200 with a trailer load of attachments?,I 'm telling you guy if thats the case I definitly live in the wrong state Smile KW

Geography, I'm sure, has a lot to do with it. But also People will pay $700 to $750 for craftsman like that - and believe they got a good deal. Either Nate makes a few extra bucks off it or someone else does Wink

It's also not common knowledge to mister or missus average consumer that craftsmans are MTD... heck, I'd say most don't know that MTD, yard machine, huskee, et al are the same. If they did, I think kmart would sell a heck of a lot of riders and lowes and sears would be struggling with them. Marketing is what it's all about... build a brand and people buy it... if the brand is no longer what it used to be because it was bought out matters not, if the consumer doesn't know it. All this goes beyond mowers, of course... look at Chevy-GMC-Cadilac, Ford-Mercury-Lincoln... each with the same line of cars as the sister company but branded higher-end and marketed for a premium price.

Just my .02
