Bob-Cat T5-2-20 Seeks New Home

I have a Bob-Cat T5-2-20 that I am just unable to handle anymore due to weight of the machine and I no longer need it. It is a snow eating beast and in excellent original condition. I bought it used about 10 years ago. I am in the Pittsburgh area. I am reluctant to post on Craig's List.
Is there a resell market? Does anyone collect these older monsters? Do you know a reasonable value or price? Any advice? Thank you for your input.

There's a "for sale" section here. I'm sure someone will want it.

Price can be quite a varience depending on condition/location/area,ect. Your in a good Month to sell as winter is upon us. If good as sounds- If I was in the market for one I'd pay $175 up to.. maybe $250. A collector would maybe go higher but really depends on different variables. Some people will look at it as a 30-40 year old machine and then others as myself would look at it as a workhorse and the heavier duty quality of yesterdays models. I'd compare the value to about the same or little more than a same era Ariens in same condition. More scarce than the ariens so probably little more collectable value. The 7-8hp model with 28" cut would be a $250-$300+ one but again depending on condition (not meaning just rust-free, but wear and wobble as parts are hard to find for them- some parts extinct and may have to be even be machined) - my opinion anyway.. Put it in the sectioned mentioned- Guys here like the older stuff.
