Wow! Sounds like a mean little machine! Wish itíd been out there when I was looking. Tree farmers donít seem to fetch much money in Maine but they may elsewhere. They are one of the most undervalued machines IMO. Just a real clean simple robust design. Around here the going rate for an average C4-C5 tree Farmer with all the average issues is 8-12k. Anyhow, IMO when Iíve sold skidders I didnít give any consideration to what other people were asking for theirs. Itís all about the value of your machine. If anyone has a brain between their ears and actually has real money to spend theyíll know what theyíre looking at and add up all the value of parts they wonít be buying. Best thing Iíve found is keep receipts and your value in just parts plus a fair machine price is a good place to start.  C4ís also tend to fetch a bit more money being small. Usually guys upgrading from a tractor will snatch those up. Those type of folks are used to paying 25-30k for a tractor so 14-18k for a decent skidder is chump change. I also think honestly is the best policy. If you know about some quirks, fix them or let the prospective buyers know. Thereís also items that may be on your to do list after theyíre a bit more worn out, disclose those. I think if the cage and tins arenít all banged up and beat, mechanically it sounds good and new rubber is a HUGE bonus youíll sell it no problem. Donít hesitate to list it on Craigslist in 2-3 neighboring states. It sounds like itís real nice and if your confident in what you have theyíll see your confidence and be willing to pay the number. As you know, you can buy a 10k machine and throw another 5k at it to be useable or you can buy a 20k machine and still throw 5k at it to be useable.

Cash at pick up or their check has to clear through my bank before anything leaves my possession.  That's my CL policy :) 8)

Corley, that not even good enough. If the originating account has cashed a fake check, they would withdraw the money from your account, when they discover that there was no balance on the buyer's account. I know someone who got done for 50000Ä. French police and customs wouldn't bulge, Belgian police and customs wouldn't either. He managed to go up in Antwerp, and that the port's customs officers who finally got him his land cruiser back. Thankfully he had a GPS tracker on the car. And knew where it was. And thankfully the transit time for the big car transporting boats is long. So the car stayed for may be three or four weeks in Antwerp. And thankfully he had a proof of the scam he had been victim of.

I do the contrary, first contact via email. If the guy can't write, to the bin it goes. When you sell a car in France,  you have sometimes ten africans calling in a day. So, email is easier.
