Clam Value?

Recommended Posts

Howdy All....

I have a 2 year old Clam 6800, NEVER used, and was wondering what it was worth today. I would like something a bit lighter, something easily packed on an ATV. But you just can't beat the room the 6800 has. My neighbor offered me $200 for it. Should I take it? Hold out for more $$? Or just live with the extra weight?

I sold a house on here last fall, 6x8 portable, for $200. That's a fair price. If you definately don't want the house, I'd take the money. If you're still unsure, or want to hold on to it until you get a new one, I'm sure you'll get the $200 out of it next fall. My house was 4 years old, and had a couple of holes in the side that had patches on them.

I sold my year old 6800 this past November for $350. $200 for a brand new one, even though it may be a year old, is too low IMO. You could probably hold out until next fall and get over $300 for it, just depends on whether or not you can wait that long or need the money now. Remember, this is a $500 unit, brand new, so a year old, unused one should be able to fetch much more than $200.

Not too many people are buying suitcase styles anymore but with it being brand new I would try to get in the $275. This time of year its a tuff sell though. If you want to get rid of it this year tell your buddy $225.Thats if he is a good friend. grin.gif

    • I thought they were all 4-cycle.  The ones I saw so fare were.  
    • Have you changed anything from your first attempt on venison bacon
    • A pic of the creek where we hunt, my deer, son in laws deer. Blended all 3 to 1. Ended up kinda neat for us. 
    • I have used a Toro single stage for about 10 years now. I was very skeptical until I helped a friend with snow removal. I won't ever go back to a 2 stage. Mine is a 2 stroke but I've seen the 4 stroke Toros in action and they seem just as good. There have been a couple times of heavy snow fall where I had to do the driveway in the middle of a storm and again at the end and also times of breaking up the plow ridge at the end but the pros far outweigh the cons. I like that it folds up like a lawnmower. When I get the mower out in the spring the blower goes under the shelf. No more big bulky blower in the way all the time and the rubber paddles clean right down to the cement. It's light enough to throw in the pickup and if you lift on the handles it'll propel itself if the snow isn't super deep. Go for the single. You won't regret it. 
    • The best snow thrower I’ve used is the one that uses your arms and a shovel😂 No blower or plow for me I can have the driveway done in the same amount of time if not a hair faster than a blower and, we’ve got a pretty decent sized driveway to, We get a good pile at the end from the grader that plows the township roads. I have wanted to mount a plow on one of the wheelers to plow the road as our township is extremely cheap and there must be Minimum 3-4 inches to plow. Anyway single stages are better for smaller drive ways and less snow. Personally I’d never by a single stage as you get a decent snow load and it may get frustrating or that pile at the end from the plow. But being you have a 2 stage as well it shouldn’t be an issue. Finding a good heavy duty rig with a good engine is key. Toro makes a good blower as well as huqvarna IMO. Im not sure if  huqvarna evenmakes smaller blower though.
    • I wouldn't get the Honda 4-Cycle Single Stage.  We have one at work and they are gutless wonders.  We also have the Toro 2 cycle single stage and that has a lot more balls!  IMO.  😉
    • A good bottle of bourbon or case of beer might make a difference.....
    • Great feedback.  I guess I will go with the single stage.  Just wish I had a solution for keeping the plow driver from pushing our entire culdesac's snow onto my lawn.
    • I have a Gen1 Helix 5 and love it on the ice, but also use it on my kayak. If I were to do it over again I would have got the 7" or bigger. Its not so much an issue on the ice but DI/SI is hard  to fully utilize on a 5" screen.
    • I always use 6lb mono for jigging rods and And 8lb mono on deadsticks. No leaders for me I’ve debated it but it doesn’t really seem to make a difference if you have one or not.
