    value of cats and some DPFs please

    I'm trying to sell some cats and also trying to help work get rid of some old DPFs. I haven't been able to find anyone interested in the DPFs, perhaps they don't have anything worthwhile inside?



    I've gotten a few quotes on my cats, ranging from $300-$750 for the 4 of them. Unfortunately, the $750 offer fell through once they found out I am in Canada. Why would I be offered so much more from a buyer in the USA? They said they wouldn't buy from me because Canadian cats are different. I just sent a picture, they never asked for a code. It seems like they aren't giving me the whole truth so I'm looking for some more opinions.

    Any input would be appreciated.

    Cats:

    #s are 12579935 or 097597
    045178ACB (2 of these)
    I can't find any numbers on the 3rd cat from left. Maybe it's aftermarket???


    DPFs:

    Thanks. I'd really like more info on why the USA buyer was able to offer so much more than I can get locally. Unless there are some laws I am not aware of, I can easily get the cats to the States and get the higher price.

    DPFs themselves arn't catalysts, they're just for particulates, so don't have the precious metals required for those reactions. Some companies do buy them as cores for remanufacturing, though.

    Some of those look like Bosch flow through filters with the DPF and the catalyst - Tier 4 interim with fuel injection as well? Do you know their condition upon removal? If you toss me some details on those, I can see if I might be able to find a buyer around here.

    I did and I contacted a few members but heard nothing back yet. I don't think I'm allowed to post in there.

    Thanks.

    The parts guy is off this week. I'll try and get details when he is back. They've failed in some way because we put new/reman ones back on those trucks. My guess is they are cracked since we didn't send them out to be cleaned.
