I like the LP tractors. Its hard to say what to offer without pictures. How are the tires and how many hours. You ave no clue what works and what does not. It should be fairly cheap.
I guess my wife was right...small is in the eyes of the beholder......wow....1600 acres. I guess ya'll are pretty busy right about now.. Thanks ,my curiosity had peaked as I'd just read in another post where you were talking about another tractor you had and that wasnt in your avatar.RDG,
We have a small farm. We own 800 acres and lease about 800. As for "farm" tractors, we have JD 8300 and an IH 404. The IH really never leaves the barn area but is used for wagons or pto stuff. Our 8300 does everything. The 4520 is at my home but used for different farm related tasks like mowing the areas around the farm or for forks. We also have an old farmall A thatneeds to be resotred. The red tractors were my grandfathers and the 8300 is our first green one. We used to have a IH 1056 and IH 1586 but sold them 2 years ago.
As far as the tractor. I was thinking 500 to 900 for it not running, but again, hard to judge as the shape of the tractor would be a key factor.
Keep us informed! I think with an offer of 500 you should be ok....heck with scrap metal prices,you could probably get that much if it turns out to be scrap.I'm thinking of offering $500, depending on what else is learned/observed upon a closer inspection. Can't believe it's been sitting so close to that road and nobody has done anything with it. It's not on a main road, but sitting out in the country. Still though, that gravel road gets traveled a lot. Wouldn't you know it, I also saw some other potential machines to help feed this addiction/affliction. My family doesn't share the same love/passion I have for machines of all types and colors.
Rgd, would a JD MT be close to the cub? Was the first tractor that came to mind.
Hope you have success with your search.Keep us informed! I think with an offer of 500 you should be ok....heck with scrap metal prices,you could probably get that much if it turns out to be scrap.
But...you started me looking around for an M now:nunu:
It would be very, very close. I once had an IH 154 that someone has painted JD green and yellow with a brush. :unknown:Would a green farmall cub be blasphemy?:lol: What would be a JD equivalent to the Cub?
