Re: Gravely tractors & attachments on CL Pittsburgh
Found an L about an hour from me and I was emailing the guy. I offered him $200 and he was asking $600. Last ran over 20 years ago and looked pretty rough. Guy emailed me over 20 times back and forth telling me my offer was ludicrous and I should be ashamed of myself.
Last message he sent me and claimed to have parked it in his front yard and it sold for $250 30 minutes later... the only thing that kept me from buying it was $50?
He never gave me a counteroffer just told me how dumb I was.
There's my annoying Western PA Gravely story. Lol
Yeah I think we've all run into those kinda people.
Talked too a guy about an hour and a half away with some rider stuff on the phone. Went and looked at the stuff made him an offer of $600 and "said I could get more in scrape for the stuff" An 812 , deck , blade or blower and some parts and a 430 trans. Mind you week before we had hauled 2 tons of scrap and got a whoopping $110 for that from work. So laughed, wished him luck and left.
Wonder what ever happened to them. Scrapped who knows? Was a four years ago now.
There out there! Point have a price agreed upon before looking at stuff until inspected otherwise
