I think you are under priced.  Don't get too generous.  That old iron has qualities and the newer iron has extraordinary cost.

Full disclosure: I have a newer model/bit different machine and paid $22k.

If you take the grand, make sure he knows it's non-refundable if he changes his mind.  If your CL ad is as descriptive as this one, not much he could pick on.  That's how I run my ads as well.  This will tell you if he's really serious.  Also price is firm.  He wants to haggle, keep the grand and let him walk, he won't. 

I looked real hard at your machine.  It's half the price of a new grapple trailer.  I'd love to have it, but can't justify it on the business side yet and I have a house rehab coming up that will tie up any free cash.  Mama's looking forward to the house.  Us and four kids in a mobile home is getting old.   :)  If I were at a different station in life...

Looks real good for the price.

Lucas 6-13+slabber, Mr. Sawmill bandmill, orange chainsaws, JD SSL, Case Backhoe, farm tractors, trailers, and 150ish acres of trees.  Fledgling woodshop with CNC router, laser engraver, Woodmaster 712, and a Berlin 108 moulder (project).  Oh, and a lovely (patient) wife and four offbearers.

  It's still here  :)  Guy from Green Bay never called back  ;D  Had a couple other tire kickers out to look but no takers for what I feel it's worth.  Looking more and more like it's going to be retired to the bone yard for spare tires and parts.  Oh well.  I'm not it giving away.  Scrap prices are  supposed to come back in 10 years or so  ;D

If you were closer, I'd want to see if a deal with maple tubing installation would interest you.... But I think the distance is a bit too far for me.

  Got a guy that's supposed to be here around noon Saturday from Marinette, Wi.  Sounded more sincere than the last guy ;D
  Quite a ways from Michigan to Vermont indeed.  Bartering is good  8) 8)   
  The distance from the Tip of the Mitt to everywhere else is always an issue compounded by the Lakes.  North across Da Bridge and west before you can go south if needed or all the way south to the Ohio Indiana borders to get away  ;D :D  Going into Canada at Port Huron or Detroit is an option as well and the shortest way to the North East if travelling in a foreign land isn't an issue  :) :)

I am prepping for a log cabin build and will be in the market next summer (I will be stacking logs next summer). 

If you still have it - I would be very interested.

Corley.
Ballpark idea what it would cost to get it to the northeast?
I'm interested.
It is quite a haul though.
You can pm me if you need to.

Just talked to a guy out this way.
3 bucks a mile.
Roughly 800 miles one way.
He would need a piece going out that way also.
That would be a hefty trucking bill.

  Transportation costs are an issue :(
  I just talked to the guy from Marinette.  He and his wife came over this evening and are in Mackinaw City.  They'll be down in the morning 8)

  I got a cash deposit on it.  He'll be back with a low boy and the rest of the cash this week to get it.  He wants it home by next weekend to get the pin fixed in the boom and replace the center pins before he puts it to work 8) 8)  He's got a by pass bucket and continuous rotator for it so I knocked a little off to help him cover the cost of trucking and I'm keeping the bucket for the collection :-\ ;D
Anybody need a 180 degree rotation butt bucket ???

Awesome! I'm glad you got some jingle for it and it's going back to the woods where it belongs ;)

  He works for his cousin who has a CTL operation and he free lances jobs that are too small to move the big machines to.  It'll work good for him.  They had one just like it that was sold in the 90s to move up to a double bunk machine.
