Are these good prices? Or should I negotiate them down some more?

great deal on the driveway racers! the dump truck looks pretty clean
#83507
do they have 2 drive wheels? I assume they dont keep good enough contact with the ground for good traction?

Yeah it is 2 wheel drive. I guess I should get one of the John deeres instead. Any suggestions between the backhoe and front end loader?

Hum, I wonder if I could turn the dump truck into a track vehicle ;-) maybe a tank? That would be cool anyone know how the gear boxes hold up on these things?

Well, my hubby vetoed the tank idea so I have scratched the CAT. But I have landed 2 more that I will try to have done for Christmas ...

Got it for $15 w/o battery, planning on making it a UT jeep, make that $10!

Yep, scheduled to pick them up on Sunday, when the seller will be home. I can't wait! My husband thinks I'm crazy, oh well :D Hopefully he will feel differently after these flips. Just bought 4 batteries, 12v 12ah, from ecomelectronics for $20.30 each so I will be ready!

the sportsman looks a little sun baked but you still got a good deal in my opinion :D

Just picked up this Hurricane for $75. Battery is toast but it came with he charger and manual. They even put new tires on it last Christmas and saved the old front wheels which are totally serviceable. Obviously i will be keeping this one;-) i dont think my son is going to part with it! I need a power wheels garage...

I was thinking of doing a flag theme for this on for the 4th of July parade but i think i will leave it as is right now and let my son pick out a theme after he turns 3

So I picked these 2 up yesterday for $25 total. The gator is rough but runs great and will be perfect to leave out at the farm. Plan on harvesting the controller and motor from the pocket mod to use on the Hurricane when my son gets a lit older and I put rubber tires on it :D my husband says they are both trash but he has said that about every ride I have brought home except the hurricane

It doesn't look as bad in person I swear!

These are the picks the seller listed. He also said he has about 4 more out on his property that he will send me picks of when he goes out this weekend.

The wheels on the gator alone are worth twice the amount you spent for both of those rides. WTG!
