If you're patient you can find a good hoe for under 10K. I was in the market 2 (or was it 3) years ago.
In a 2 or 3 month period I found 3 good hoes under 10K within 25 miles of my home. One was a Ford 555 about 1980 vintage. It was a diesel, gear trans,cab with heat, standard hoe, good tires. Don't recall the hours. Overall good condition. It was advertised at $8900 and sold quickly.
The second was a 1978ish Case 580C, diesel, shuttle,open ROPS, std hoe. 4500 or so hours. This machine had a very easy life. It was used for loading fertilizer into trucks. The rear tires were pretty worn. Otherwise it was in excellent condition. It sold at auction for $8100.
The one I ended up buying was a 1980 Ford 555, diesel, shuttle,3600 hours, cab with heat, extendable hoe, new rear tires, and a set of forks. Very good condition. I paid $7400.
