Value of a sled?

15 posts in this topic

Where does one go to find the resale value of a sled. I bought a 2003 two up for my wife Dec of 05 off the show room floor, after she got one ride on it she was severly injured at work and we are still in recovery mode for her. The doctors say that she shouldnt get real excited about being able to get out and trail ride anymore so i'm thinking of selling it this fall. I found some places for pricing but this thing has 38 miles on it and is in perfect shape - not that I want new for it just an idea of "fair" for both parties involved. Does anyone here know where I could start to look or who I could contact....Thanks...F&F...

Leech...thats funny right there.. laugh...I did the Kelly thing but unlike cars you cant put in miles or condition..it just lumps all 03's of that model in together. If there are two side by side and one has 38 miles and the other has 5800 miles the values will be different. I'm not a huge sled guy so I dont have the ability to judge the difference fairly.

I bought the same sled for my wife, used, season before last with 1700 miles. It was $2400. In very nice shape. I hope this gives you an idea. I would love to get another one, it's a great machine.

Another place to get some ideas, is to punch it up on HSO-Classifieds or C/list and try to get a price range from what others are asking for their's. But FF I'll still give you $1000 cash today! grin leech~~

I assisted in the sale of a 2000 Triple Touring (600cc) 2-up machine last winter and it fetched $2200 right away. It had about 1500 miles and mint condition.

Personally, in the fall/early winter $3500 or so is not unreasonable for that machine with 38 miles. It's not even broken in yet! I would start there and see what happens. There are not a lot of touring machines out there, and they seem to be in demand.

Ya from what I have seen you should be able to get $3250 -$3500. At least start there.

HSO-Classifieds sells for higher prices in the fall and winter then it will around here. There isn't a large demand for 2 up touring sleds either so the larger the area you can advertize the better chance you will get the price you are looking for.

    • Was clearing some downed trees from trails this morning. Checked a couple of trees and would you look at that. I didn't look very hard so I'm sure there are more, but of course have to head to work. Cold weather predicted after today though...  
    • Fished the Chip this weekend and found some success.  Lots of crappie action in select bay and bottle neck areas near warm water, timber and old cabbage.  Bobber and minnow was best, but anything was working.  We kept 10 smaller fish for the 3 of us and that was plenty of fish for us.  No need in keeping 25 fish (what a joke).  I wish the DNR would reduce the limit in WI!
    •   CM..that is a big "if" and pretty much the story of the series...good puck possession, lots of shots, few goals...and they have to find guys that can score against the "Allen's" of the world going forward...we aren't going to be playing against trash tenders come any playoff time.   Agree with your observation on the D zone coverage...way too much stick checking all over the ice by both forwards and Dmen...lack of putting body on opponents is either A  - pure laziness or  B - simply outmatched physically. This has to be addressed going foward.   Quite frankly I cannot think of one player that stepped up in the playoffs and played above their reg season...not one.    Haula seems to be a headcase...I don't think he is near as good as he thinks he is and tends to beat to his own drum IMO but we might be stuck with him. Ek will figure it out...playing in the World's now after playing in the Junior World's as well so he'll keep working on his game and be a good one soon IMO.   Will be interesting to hear Fletch's spin on things when he assesses things publicly soon but my guess is it will be "the sky is not falling...blah blah blah" same dump every year.  Sounds Like Leo is keeping him unfortunately...but he's made his own bed, now he has to sleep in it and there are not many GM's in the NHL that envy his postion IMO.  
    • So this is my first year playing Bassmasters Fantasy Fishing, What does the Own % mean and does it have anything to do with the points you would earn if that person is on your team?  Or is it a % of people that have picked that person.   Thanks
    • What are my choices?   I have a pump, well actually two pits with two pumps, one on each end of basement.   Probably half horse pumps?   I don't recall what they are.     So if I get one of those battery back up things, ideally I would want it to protect against both pump failure and power outage.  I figure power outage is maybe 12 to 24 hours except for some real disaster here in Rochester.   Pump failure could be days if I am out of town.   But if the battery charger can keep up with the average draw, it would be ok.   Pumping head is about 5 feet if that matters.  
    • If possible, get doctor to give you prednisone or an inhaled cortico-steroid like flovent or asminex (assuming you have prescription drug insurance)   Or the codine cough syrup if nothing else.  It is cheap.  Need a prescription, though
    • There also the 360 things by some companies.    
    • Hi all,   Any advice on purchasing a side image depthfinder? Worth it? Brand & model?   Thanks!   Ref  
    • Which size are you referring to? 
    • How much current do the battery pumps draw?
