Suggested Auction price?

871 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  dkarst
I found an auction for a JD 3 pt Tiller that had been used on a 425 series JD Tractor. My 445 has nothing but the tractor and the mower deck. On rear: just a large black U shaped steel bracket with a trailer ball mounted in middle. Nothing for adapting front or rear end equipment. No extra hoses either.
-- What additional adapters or parts needed? Guessing: 3 pt hitch at least!
-- Looks to be in good shape, see pics. Auction at about $400. New, it appears these go for around $2500 without the 3 pt hitch.

What should my top end offer be?

You will need a 3-point hitch and rear PTO. Each may be quite expensive, especially the rear PTO. When I evaluated this when I purchased my 445 new in 1997, I decided to rent a tiller (hardware store with rentals just 2 blocks away) when I needed one. I later found a nice JD tiller for my 430 which had rear PTO and 3PT.

You can check JD parts for rear PTO kit parts cost...then you will have to install. Same for 3-point hitch (you may need a different rock shaft too?)
