Got a chance to pick up a stand and feeder and need to get an idea of worth.
Feeder is a 600# stand and fill 12 volt HB feeder in good shape, 4 years old.
Stand is a metal 4x6 Monarch, 6' stand with an additional platform with stairs.
It's in good shape but it could stand to be repainted. It's also 4 years old.

What are they worth?

Now those Monarch stands are all metal, but they are definitely not the quality of most all metal blinds. It's in good shape, windows and door good, it's just sun faded.

Still $2000+ for both with today's new prices, Atascosas or Bushlans on 6' stand, stairs 4x6 new are probably $3250-3750.

Those Bushland's stands are pretty equal to the Monarch it looks like.

I just bought a brand new Crossfire stand and fill 600# for $450.

I have a Monarch 4×6 stand on 8 feet platform. Bought it for $850 but many years ago and but they look way different than the new ones. That company has gone thru a lot of changes and ownership.

$2,000 sounds about right. Plus labor to move.

Found the feeder on the internet, it's a new one though, as far as price.

I have used that HB feeder and the Bucees stand and fill. Will go Bucees all day long. In regard to value on the HB, $250, half of a new Bucees.

Im not up to date with Monarch now but 15+ years ago most of what I saw(maybe other models) were cheaply made. Thats OK for some cause the cost was less also. The ones we had/saw was skeleton/frame of small square tubing and skinned with one thin layer of sheet metal. It would really make a lot of noise in the wind or if you bumped the sides. The window were plexi and went all the way around and would slide back and forth. I dont guess you posted a pic I missed. If its the stand Im picturing I wouldnt pay 1000 and at least half that would be the tower setup.
Im not personally familiar with the feeder but I think they are very well made. I just do not like the design where the varmit guards knocks down so much of the corn.


At some point in life its time to quit chasing the pot of gold and just enjoy the rainbow. FR

That's the same box blind I'm looking at, but with lockable good windows. It has an 8' well made homemade tower with porch and stairs.
I bought box blind, tower and feeder for $1000.

Yes, the box blind is cheaply made compared to other metal stands, but at some point they changed to a lot better windows.

I have all Ranch Kings on the ranch (5)
I think I'll set this one up for pig hunting.

I figured it would be loud, I have a bunch of carpet squares. Thinking of gluing to the inside walls.
I 100% agree about the feeder, but this one is pretty well made.

Sounds like you made a very good deal. And pig hunters should be happy.

You could also spray foam some insulation around the bottom half of the blind to dampen down the sound. Carpet squares will probably do the same. Either one will add a little rigidity for the noise in higher wind or a light tap with a shoe. up
