Just love this ad...if you don't pay what the guy wants he'll take both of the tractors to the crusher and get half the money or less. Excellent salesman skills.

I sometimes laugh at ads like this that say things like "don't waste my time with crazy offers" or "serious inquiries only" or "no tire kickers please, or "I'll take them to the crusher for $400 before I sell them to you for three times that much." Generally, these guys are in some kind of a mindset where they probably think what they have is valuable where in reality, what they have a nothing more than scrap iron.

Wonder if he'd be OK with you coming to look at them before you made the purchase decision? I'd like to meet him- seems like a fun guy.

True story: There used to be an Allis Chalmer tractor jockey and AC used parts dealer near me who could have written that ad. He would rather sell AC parts for scrap than to have somebody leave with a good deal. Case in point: One time he advertised an AC radiator for sale and a guy shows up to look at it. The potential buyer asks the jockey if he would sell it for a lower price. The AC jockey exploded on him, took a sledge hammer to the radiator and beat the sheep out of it as the potential buyer watched in horror. The AC jockey then bragged to everybody around here what he had done to the radiator.
Why could the tractor jockey do that? Because he had won several million dollars on the state lottery just a few months earlier. The guy is now deceased and I don't know of anybody local who shed a tear at his funeral. (Not because he won the lottery, it was because he was a crook with a statewide bad reputation)

Probably a real good time to let the owner exercise his options

As Pete said, I see his point (and I do not blame him for noty wanting to deal with the low-ballers). Maybe the money is not the point to him.

I agree with you on that one!!! There was a dealer in my area that if he took some stuff in trade he would stick it out back. Now if YOU came in and asked about one of those items the first thing he would do was to ask what you wanted to pay. Well that is when the RED flags go up. He would Double what you said you would pay and you hadn't even low balled him. I said no and walked away. If it sat for more than a couple of months....in to the scrap compactor it went. If he couldn't make his price. then no one would get it. Lost out on a couple of Gravely attachments that were in pretty nice shape but this idiot scraped them all. So no profit, just being an idiot. Another dealer bought him out. Glad he is gone.

I had an older N.H. round baler for sale, basically for parts and a guy found everything imaginable under the sun wrong. He wanted me to operate it in sub 0 weather and I finally got tired of the foolishness and told my Grandson to get the torches out of the shop. The guy wanted to know what I was doing & I said I don't want you to have any trouble with it so we're gonna gut it up and haul it for scrap. He pulled the money out of his pocket and I told him it was time for him to get off the property the baler wasn't for sale to him at any price. Next guy didn't even want to hear it run, he just wanted it put on his trailer. You just get tire of the4 BS sometimes. Keith

Tractor data says that model is 8000 to 10000 lbs. Lets say they are 8000 lbs without tires. I'm getting 240 a gross ton for short steel. that $1714. Untouched I would get $1214.
I had a farmall M parts tractor on craigslist one time. Worth $400 in scrap(prices very high then). Several people offered me 100 to 200 for it. I took it to the scrap yard.
So he's not that far off from scrap price.
