 Price check on Cub 7305

OOPS, my other posts finally showed up, sorry for the dups if you already saw the others...

Have a line on a '99 Cub Cadet 7305 w/ 476 loader, R4 tires (fronts worn but OK, backs almost new) and around 1100 hrs on it. Unit looks worn, but not abused. Includes Gill super pulverizer, Rhino ST63 Tiller, Folding ROPS. Asking $14,200 (plus gov't share).

Use will be cleanup around the barn (horses, run a therapeutic riding center), pasture maint, arena maint, take care of gravel rd and parking area, and all the other stuff that will show up on the "honeydew" list.

Frame size/footprint is a little bigger than I wanted (tight storage and poorly designed access in some spots), but I do like the fact that this one will reach my loft w/ forks on it.

I think its a fair price w/ the attachments (although they aren't the first things I'd have bought). I'd still need box, PH digger, maybe a rake.

Opinions on the price ? Am I getting into the range of newer equip w/ loader only ?

Thanks for the advice...

Stan

Stan the tractor you are looking at is a thirty horsepower hydro and has a retail price of 17000. and change not counting the loader with a retail of just over 4000. not counting the other attaachments. The unit you are looking at must have come from a contractor and you might want to know who, as far as maintence performed. The front tires being low on rubber tells me it was used on pavement.

Dear Stan, I'll probably get a black eye from other Cub Cadet owners for telling you this but I truly think Cub Cadet is going to distance itself from the Mitsubishi built series 7000 machines. Recently, as early as June of this year, the new "American" made series 7000 machines started to show up at the area dealers. These machines are a far cry from the Mitsubishi units, and my dealer, who is very angry with Cub Cadet/MTD, tells me an "inside source" at MTD told him MTD was going to drop Mitsubishi because of the low profit margin, and concentrate on an all new approach; gas engines and only one diesel, but in smaller machines to start, then move up to larger units - made in the U.S.A., but with Japanese engines. Maybe this is not true, maybe it is, do you want to take the chance? My dealer has a whole bunch of the new American 7000's and isn't accepting any more of the Mitsubishi units. He only wants to sell the units he has and won't accept any new Mitsubishi units.

Another sign of trouble at MTD is their parts and technical service, it is going from bad to worse. I have had nothing but bad service for the last year and a half, and it isn't the dealer's fault either. He has excellent parts support for all of his products except for two: Snapper and Cub Cadet.

I still have a 7275, which I love, with the old 417 (Woods) loader, and the old 407 (also Woods) backhoe. It has been a wonderful machine and I have been offered (recently) $18,000, I turned it down. I think that much of the machine. I also have a Kubota L35 TLB, I won't compare the two machines, that wouldn't be fair, but I will say this; Kubota may have high prices for parts when compared to other makes, but not that much higher, and parts usually come within five days! When I need to know something about the L35, immediate help is forthcoming. When I need information from MTD, I get a song and dance.

Think real hard, check real close. Search this site for other Cub Cadet posts. You may very well be able to get a new 7305 with loader for only two grand more than the used machine. Good luck.
