Ok, the kid is a little off base (about double) but let's break this down. Late model F-12 - and it looks pretty complete. Scrap, $400. To a collector looking for a reasonable restoration? About $500 in my neck of the woods. The Little Genius plow? Scrap $150. If complete and not all rusted away at the wheels, that is a $300 item. Sickle bar mower, looks complete. Scrap. $150. To someone looking to restore or parts, $300+ if all there and decent condition.

So, his price is overboard for sure, but if all decent and relatively complete, that is a $1100 set. If you doubt me, ask anyone at RPRU what some of those things were sold at or priced at.

I know that everyone finds something for a really low price every once in awhile, but these things are becoming rarer ever day due to the scrap man. Consider what you would be willing to pay for that sickle bar mower if you we're restoring be and needed the gear box. How much would you pay? In all my years of fixing and collecting, I have NEVER seen very many F-12 mower parts here in western PA. If I were closer, I would definitely chat with the guy, an make him an offer better than the scrap an, but definitely less than what he is asking.

Last consideration. If someone were to dismantle all this, and sell parts individually, the total would probably exceed what the guy is asking.........of course your labor to disassemble is "free".
