Do your dealers want to deal on old tractors, or just give it to ya with no grease?
Local dealer has an IH Super C on the lot priced at $3000. There's no way it's worth $3000. It's a $1500 tractor on a good day.
The dealer's bottom line on the tractor is $2800. He will not budge from that number, no way, no how. Dealer's having an auction tomorrow. We'll see what it's worth, and if he lets it go.
I see threads on here where people ask what some tractor a dealer has is worth. You guys send them off to the dealer with some Pollyanna number in their heads and the idea that the dealer is going to gladly accept that number.
In some 30+ years of tractor shopping I have never once seen a dealer with a reasonably priced old tractor, or one that would even budge more than 5% or so on that price. They must be waiting for some fool with too much money to come along and fall in love with the "pwetty old twaktor."
Do you have dealers that will deal or is it like this pretty much everywhere?
