Where to advertise?

I'm trying to sell some excess older hay equipment and advertised in the local paper for a couple of days. Even a little classified ad is now pretty pricey, and I didn't even get a single call. Web seems like overkill--nobody beyond 50 miles would be interested in this stuff.

So where do y'all advertise when you want to get rid of it...or do you just sell to a dealer?

Howdy Matt!

I hadn't seen you on the board in ages and thought you'd moved or something.

I'm selling an 8' hay rake that's in good shape and 2 identical square balers that are 'as is.' If you want, I'll email you details, don't want to advertise on this board.

Bobbyjean the mule has really turned out to be a great addition to the family. She's decided that she is the mother of all the smaller critters and spends her time watching over them. I pity the predator (or anything she decides is a predator) that gets into my pasture 'cuz it won't see the next sunrise. Yet she absolutely loves the two-legged family.

anyway, take care,

Our list of New / Used Machinery was just updated today with over 800 pieces of machinery to look at. We added a few more categories so that you may list Hay, Seed, Feed Livestock etc.. Our Photo Classified page is really getting alot of traffic so send us your photos.
We also offer Web Page Design at a very reasonable rate, give us a call at 800-470-3278 for more information. Please sign our Guest Book, we would like to hear from you.

Dont rule out the YT classifieds. In fact, you should be happy that you have such an easy way to post your items. I am sure someone will be interested, and most dont care if they have to drive cross country, if it is something they need. A pic, or the ability to email pictures will be a help, though. I had very good luck using them.

Hi Tom,
I advertised in many different sites for selling my tractor and I did sell it in two days from Y/T Tractor picture ads.
I am in Arkansas and the person who bought it is in Nebraska.
Might be worth the try.

Are you in Maryland? Where is the equipment? I have 3 or 4 acres that I would like to harvest hay for my 2 horses but it's not worth spending much. I have a sickle mower (tow beind) and barns for storage.

I have advertised a tractor on the YT classifieds. Also put a want ad on. Any inquiries were from too far away.
In NH, the Dept of Ag has a Weekly Market Bulletin. Real cheap to subscribe and it's a surefire way to sell stuff like you've got. Maryland must have something like that, no?

Les: I am not aware of anything like that put out by Maryland, but I'll make a phone call to find out.

Depite its advertising campaign to the contrary, Maryland government is anti-farm and wouldn't normally spend a penny for anything farm related...the Ag extension service has been cut and there isn't too much left that doesn't beat farmers over the head about compliance with various rules and regs.

....ooops, sorry. Thanks for the info, though!
