    John Deere model H

    I've been considering getting an old Deere to tinker with, but I'm not sure where to start.

    For example, this model H caught my eye, but I don't know what to watch out for when buying something like this.

    Any tips would be appreciated.

    That is a nice tractor. Judging by the plaque on the side, this is a man who cherishes this machine or is a family who recently lost the owner of it. I'd be willing to bet it's in relatively good shape due to that. I'd go and try it out. Run it around and operate everything. Check the fluids. Smell the gas, is it fresh? This will tell you a lot about the machine. Was it just cleaned or is it "honest" showing recent oil and dirt? I prefer to see a machine that's honestly dirty. It won't hide a oil leak or actual use. When a machine is painted or cleaned super well, it can hide several issues and can be a red flag for me.

    From the looks of it, I'd say they are a bit strong on the price, but only just so. It could be just fine. If everything is top notch, it's a fair price IMHO. Around here a machine like that would bring similar dollars in great shape with good/newer tires.

    Welcome to the club.

    Iíve seen that h and think it might be a bit high on the price.

    They are neat little tractors. Iím looking for one as well. But my wife and my ideas are different at the moment.

    SGT, sell the backhoe and make it a challenge for her. It might better your odds.

    That's a nice looking H. I'm with DS. A little tough on the price. I suppose they may have started a little high. Hard for them to go up in price when negotiating a deal.

    I was cruising craigslist the other evening and saw this '46 H and it reinforces what DS said about the good rubber and maybe a bit strong on price.

    I have a new appreciation about this size tractor (weight), after dragging the 60 (2,000 lb heavier) to a couple of different events, if that's your thing. Rides and shows are pretty popular here in the Midwest, it seems like there's something going on every weekend if you look. This size would make transporting much easier.

    That's what attracted me to the H, seems to be the "compact" of its day. Easier to store too.


    I did reach out to the owner of the one I posted, I'm going to try to set something up for next week, but his schedule is difficult. He is retired by apparently has medical issues and many appointments. Probably the reason for the sale. I get the impression that this tractor is his baby.

    He may be strong on the price, but I also don't want to offend him. It's hard to overcome someone's sentimental attachment.

    There's a guy on the Michigan thumb with one for 2k. He sent me a video of it running, sounds good. That's a long drive though if something ain't right. But for 2k, might be worth the road trip, about 5.5 hours.

    It's isn't as polished or parade ready as the one in OP, which is OK with me. I'm not looking for a show piece. Just something to tinker with and putt around on.
