Default CHATTANOOGA No 44 Cane Mill

Hi, Does any one have a rough idea what these mills usually sell for. I am from Michigan and you dont even see them around here let alone for sale. I hate asking for a value but I havnt seen any that have sold to help base a rough price. The one I am looking at is complete, repainted, and I dont see any repairs. I should also add HEAVY. I will attach a couple pictures. If you dont want to post what you have seen them selling for just send me a private message. Thanks!!!!!

Down here, the bigger ones like that seem to be in the $600+ price range, if you are even luck enough to find one for sale. Probably closer to $800-1000. Even the little, vertical horse-powered ones go for about $200 in rough shape.

ANY power mill is going to command a premium price. They are highly sought after by people who still make syrup due to the fact that they are much, much more efficient than their horse(mule) drawn counterparts. The animal powered mills have risen into the $500.00 plus range, while the power mills can go upwards of 2 grand depending on the model and size. I found a #70 Chattanooga a few years back for $500.00 and I rolled out the cash before the guy could bat an eye. I have a video of my #70 grinding sorghum while being powered by a 6 hp tank cooled Famous a couple of years back.

Thanks for the info. I just assumed they were quite common in the southern states but I guess I was wrong. Thanks for the video, great to see one in action.

I am late to this conversation but just thought I would add my 2 cents...I would expect that to be in the $1200-$2000 range. The horse drawn ones I have seen lately are at least $500 and most are a lot more and are in rough shape. I recently paid $600 for a horse drawn mill in ok shape
