This tractor (D120 loader) can be purchased at Mutton's right now for $15,299...and I would hate to offer them $15k if I didn't want to take it home.I checked out a few sites and knowing my local dealer has the same tractor priced at $17,725 with a 60" mmm, if I owned your tractor and wanted to sell quickly I would price it at $15,850. That puts the price below $16k so hopefully that would get some attention but still high enough to give negotiation room for a buyer to feel they are getting a great "deal". If a buyer and you could come to terms on a price around the $15k mark, surely with tax and dealer fees they could be saving between 3-4 grand and that may be enough to move the tractor on to a new buyer and is a thousand dollars more than the 14k you said you probably would jump on. I think these numbers truly suck and the tractor is worth more than that. I don't see your tractor selling in the $16k range because a new tractor can be purchased for not much more with a 0% loan. I would hate taking in the 14's for it knowing it only had 10 hours of use. It might take a little bit of time but surely your tractor can be sold around 15k.
I completely overlooked the loader! I knew I wasn't comparing apples to apples with my local dealer on the mmm but I thought I was close, clearly I am off by quiet a bit. I was truly trying to be as aggressive as possible in finding a comparable price for his tractor but I missed the mark. I retract my previous thoughts, looks like the op might as well prepare to bend over someone's knee cause its going to be a spanking.This tractor (D120 loader) can be purchased at Mutton's right now for $15,299...and I would hate to offer them $15k if I didn't want to take it home.
It seems that the new 1-series tractors are being priced 'a bit more aggressively' than they were a year or so ago.
Sad but most likely is true. The tractor only being a few months old and with only 10 hours is what makes it rough. If the tractor was a year or two old and had around a 100 hours it would be easier to sell it with a "quick sale" price. I (and most likely others as well who reads this thread) hates the situation that the OP is in with wanting to sell his tractor. I praise John Deere tractors and equipment for holding their value. There is many threads on GTT that pertains to the resale/trade values of JD being a major incentive as to why others should purchase a JD to begin with. This however is a unique situation with the tractor being simply to new IMO, prices on the new machines at dealers declining, 0% terms on financing, and the equipment the op's tractor is equipped with. I hope when this topic/thread is searched in the future by potential buyers of a new tractor that this thread does not influence their decision into buying another brand or model.Honestly I think your're in a tough spot considering the prices dropping on them and 0% financing. Our local dealer has your setup with a quick attach for $189 a month. That's hard to beat unless someone is just going to pay cash.
