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.

        Alpha trout at head of feed lane. Maybe in fast broken water Subordinates all over hole but not close to alpha. Cast into top most part of fast funnel. Alpha waiting part way down the skinny feed funnel. Best to hit fast water to hide the splash. When wading, wake control a large factor here. Stay out of water if you can. Make first cast count or will get only dinks in this hole.

      Bigger trout from area wintering at bottom of slow water near the fast water. Not in fast water. Subordinates chased out of hole by bigger trout. Best to hit fast water to hide the splash. Cast into top of feed funnel and slow retrieve so presentation will get down to trout sitting on bottom just back from the end of the fast water.

      Trout extra wary on sunny no vegetation winter outing. Don't slap hole with line. Stay out of the water when attacking hole. Will be a one fish "only" hole due to water clarity and zero vegetation in hole. Any smart fish will spook when one is battled and drug through this clear non-vegetated hole.
    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
