2006 x700 with 950 hours, comes with power flow bagger

Asking $3k

Is that a good deal?

I am going to offer $2k and let him sell the bagger separate, if not $2500.


also what snow plow goes with that setup?

Thanks!

I would run and snap that up. That's a steal when you compare it to the older iron that sells for that much. I gave that much and more for my 400/attachments in early 2010. Go price them on Ebay or Machine finder and see what folks are asking for them.

Yea unless it's a used up piece of junk, I seen that CL ad and I believe the owner is or was a landscaper, he told me he hasn't had it very long. I haven't seen it though so what I'm saying was just from a brief conversation we had last week when it was first listed.

I recommend a little caution, that price sounds too good. Unless this is a deal being offered by a known aquaintance, check very closely, and don't pre-pay shipping charges. You may have stumbled onto a good deal, or another scam attempt.
Good luck

I agree with Jere39 proceed with caution. I bought my 2003 X475 (same thing as an X700)with 300 hours and PF bagger earlier this year for $4700 which I thought was a pretty good deal. The guy selling may think it is used up at 900hrs. Look it over carefully and run it through it paces. Before I bought mine it had a new carb put on it at $600, I have the receipt. But at 300 hours it probably sat a lot. I think yours is a pretty good deal especially at $2500. I may be preaching to the choir but don't let the guy talk you into paying for it with the promise that he will deliver it. I have found a couple of CL scams and all they wanted was for me to pay up front they were not interested in a face to face meeting.

All good comments. 900 hours, while a lot in a short time, really isn't a lot for these things unless it has been beaten on relentlessly. With that said, for any deal it's always best to get eyes on the tractor before forking over the money. With the kind of money they are asking, I would also bring a friend and arrange a meet in a very public place. No sense in getting jacked over a Garden Tractor!

That sounds like a pretty good deal. Now as far as it might have been used in a business that would not bother me at all on account if the business is legit, then it doent pay to not take care of your machines. A machine that is broke down doesnt bring in any income at all...Just my thoughts. Good luck and let up know how it comes out...Gary
