$700 and $1500 are the going rates for most general purpose implements. Dealers pay the 700 and get the 1500. So to answer your question it depends. One on one sales are usually the best for the buyer. However if you are a potential buyer and need something the dealer is usually the place to get it.

Gotta consider they have to find the stuff, sometimes takes a lot of looking, a lot of auctions and all, sometimes fix things broken, meaning they have to find, acquire and pay for the parts and labor, have to have OTR equipment to haul it home, have to pay business overhead and on and on.

I don't begrudge them and have bought and sold a lot through the local after market dealers.

On things like balers, we have a lot of Mexico competition here so they are a little pricy. However, looking at some of the prices folks up in the Northern tier of states some folks are asking, things here are cheap. Condition and popularity usually weigh big in the price.

I guess my answer would be what the buyer is willing to pay and what the seller is willing to take. Nothing like a good "haggling" when you are in the buying mood.

My kids will address that one day. One is farm material. The other two aren't. I'm not calling the shots. Will let them work it out for themselves.

But to the commercial normal world, what I said is how it goes around here.

I thought about that but my wife died in 2010 and her will was made out in '77 when we had 4 kids. Mandated stipulations in that will were totally out of date.

I don't know when I will die and don't know what the world nor my kids will be like then. I am not going to tweak a will ever so often. I am not going to hamstring them. If they don't talk any longer that's not that big of a deal. They don't talk much as it is. Just not a tight family. Besides the place is not made to be broken up. As far as toys and all personal possessions have no idea what will be around here then.
