I have been looking at a John Deere 445, 2001, with low hours, well maintained, with a loader in good, operable condition. Owner is asking $6500 for all, including three point hitch and suitcase weights. Does this sound reasonable? I am new to this size and type of tractor. Any thoughts?

I have a 1994 445 with the 54" Mower Deck, Front Quick Hitch and 54" Front Blade I paid less than $9000.00 brand new. I have 1050+ hours and love the machine. In the Winter of 1995-1996 I purchased the 47" Snow Blower and used it until I wore it out in 2006 I replaced it and in 2013 I added the 1026R with the H120 FEL to the stable. The 445 is now used for mowing and yard tug duties and I still love it. As for the $6500 price, only you can decide that, I would see what a new unit with that same equipment would cost if an equivelent could be found. FEL would probably be the sticking point as I believe JD only offers a FEL for the one series now.

From what I've seen (and I've been dong a lot of browsing lately), it's about on par. Not a crazy deal not a horrible one. 445 for 2000-3k, FEL 2-3k, 3ph 500, enough weights to do what the FEL specs.... yea it adds up fast.

Thanks very much. New equivalent seems to be around 22,000 at min.

That's about what I was thinking. Prices are what they are, I suppose, and will be as high as the market is willing to bear. It does add up fast, and this one looks meticulously maintained, so that's a plus. I appreciate the reply.

The 445/455 machines hold their value exceptionally well!

I traded my 1994 445 on a X730 last August. My tractor had 1,500 hrs and was in very good shape, but certainly not like new. My 445 was traded in with it's 60" deck, yard suction unit, a plow/quick connect. I was seeing some oil leakage and a large amount of carbon on the spark plug on the left bank of the engine which I disclosed . The dealer gave me $2,500 on trade when I bought my 1 year old X730 (70hr's) with 60" drive over deck, plow, quick disconnect unit, and yard suction unit. I kept my MC19 cart. Hope this gives you another "data point".
