I don't know who she has been talking to Jeff but I agree that seems high, she did say that she is open to any offers.

I figured it was ran off the rear hydro's of some piece of equipment. Boy if the price were cheaper that would be mighty tempting.

The price is what you are willing to pay, make an offer.

awww now don't say that, that just makes me think harder about it. would go nice behind the tractor to get the logs out of the woods. The farmi winch does great getting them to the trails....... hmmmmm I'll have to think about it.

But those tires don't look like they would make the trip. At least not in one piece.  :)

Besides MRQT is more than an hour from here...

Its a LOT closer to Baraga then it is to MQT and I'm sure the tires would make that SHORT trip ;)

Does that trailer extend, come into 2 pices or is it just for pulp wood?

I'm just kinda curious.

I had a loader slightly heavier that I sold for $1800 or so to a FF member. FYI, w/ grapple. It does seem high in this market. It is the same orange as the one I had. Guy put it on a nice HD trailer froom Ebay, trailer had 17.5 Super Singles, he got reasonable.

I got a email from her yesterday, and said it was appraised at 4000.00. I told her I was looking to spend about 1500.00 for a dray. someday I will find one.

That seems more reasonable, then you settle for $3000 and everyone is happy. I would pay a $1000 for the grapple. Anyone want ot buy it and sell me the grapple?

I think the grappler is worth more that $1000 if the whole unit is bought for $4000.
