With the snowblower I am not so sure he is way overpriced....maybe just a little

Last spring I paid $700 for a 318 that had 500 hours on the meter. It needed new belts/blades and the throttle cable adjusted. It wasn't as pretty(been left outside) as the one you are looking and it only had a deck but... I think you can find one cheaper. I would not pay more than $2k for that set up as nice as it is.

BTW I sold mine a week later for $1100 and that was a deal. I am thinking the "normal" price range for a good running and fully functional 318 as being in the $1500-1600 range and add about $500 for the blower. Prices will vary by region and how much pride the seller has in his machine...

Depends on your location. I know a local guy that sold a nice 318 with only a #49 snow blower for $2600 and he thought he sold it too cheap. I don't see to many for sale around here. I the last one I saw listed also had only a snow blower and a cab was listed for $2700.

A little high but maybe not with a blower in the winter time in MI. It is amazing what you can sell at GT with a snowblower for sometimes in the winter.

There is a guy about 20 miles from here who buys 318's and then asks absolute top dollar for them and their attachments. For instance he'll advertise a 318 and mower deck on CL for $2700, then when you carefully read the ad the deck will be an extra $500. He's also one of those "in your face" CL advertisers. You know the kind, "Don't low ball me, I know what these are worth". I don't know if he ever actually sells anything, but his inventory seems to change, albeit very slowly.

i been looking for last 2 days on c.l. and even a reg. 318 is going for over 2 grand here in mi.
even seen 316's and 317's even more priced with less stuff that goes with it .
so id have to say not many around here for sale or atleast not in winter time i never really checked them out in summer .
what id love to have is a loader of some sort even if a johnny bucket i getting to old to use a shovel any more , i did put up a pole barn this yr. 28 x 32 so i need a new to me tractor to put in it . my 242 is getting lonely sitting my himself.
and i moved 8 yrd's of crushed cement and power mix for the drive ramp and all around it . all by shovel and little pull behind trailor.and price range i cant afford what id really like to get .
seen a x720 for $6,500 alittle over my budget right now. wow that 1 in wash. unreal some prices people ask for this stuff .
thank you all for the repley's

Steve- Did this guy have three of them on CL last spring? As I remember, he claimed that all of them had around 500 hrs on them and all had different attachments. They looked good in the pix, but wanted good money for them.
