    JD 870, 2200 Hours Advice Needed

    Hello,

    New to the forum and tractors. I am looking to purchase a compact tractor for residential use only. Someone in my area has a model 80 with 2200 hrs. n I didnt look at it yet. Can someone help me with what to look out for when I go to see this?

    Not sure if this is a good tractor. I cant afford to spend more than $10k. He originally wanted $9500 and quickly dropped the price to $7k. Not sure why but I find it suspicious. It looks like in good shape from the pics.

    I cant really buy much for this low of a price. It doesnt come with a backhoe. Not sure how much that would cost.

    Any help I would really appreciate it.

    Bravo, First, identify the Model. I believe 80 is the model of the bucket. From what I can make out from the pics, it's an 850 tractor. VERIFY! 3 cylinder Yanmar with 2200 hours isn't too bad...usually "good" for about 9000 hours with regular maintenance. Before anyone goes anywhere, we'll need the tractor model #. Bob

    Looks like possibly an 870 from hood decal. I would do some searching around your area. I think you could do much better than that tractor if you're willing to spend 10 grand.

    it's an 870 with a model 80 loader. i don't know if that's a good deal but I think it's a good tractor.

    I would say you'd have to look the machine over well and if possible bring along someone who knows tractors to look for any signs of abuse or serious problems.

    What you have there is a model 970 with a model 80 front end loader. Start with a quick google search for “John Deere 970 for sale” and quite a few sites will come up to get you started for a price check.

    It is a model 870. I cant seem to find anything around this area in that price range. There are smaller, newer tractors in the $14k-$18k range. This seems like a good deal, especially he is willing to go lower with the price.

    Yanmar John Deeres made in those years with a gear transmission = bulletproof and more rugged that new machines. Just not as ergonomic or versatile for loader work as a hydrostatic tractor.

    If you like the functionality and it's on good shape, i would not hesitate.

    it seems in good shape. I am going this weekend to take a look at it. He is the original owner and kept up with all of the maintenance. I think I can get him down lower with the price. Thank you
