Report to Moderator

Found a 1964 806 diesel that hasn't been started in 4 years, good rear rubber, complete cab, 3pt. They are asking 5K, I called and asked if it would start so everything could be checked out and they said it will not start, needs batteries. I was also told they would take 4500 for it at that time. I have not seen it yet and it is about a 4 hour drive from me. In the s/w states. If tractor runs and works as it should, what is a fair market price for me to buy for resale as I have no use for that big of a tractor .

Any good 12 volt battery should start it. Borrow one out of your car if you don't want to buy one. I agree, the asking price is on the high side. But if it runs well and hours are not excessive it may still be a good value. I'd want the cab door. But if you are buying it to re-sell you better forget that. You'd be married to a LOOOONG time before you ever got your money back.

Don't buy an 806 that won't start, to many potential issues. I bought a runner, that had a broken rear wheel cam and wheel for 1800.00. After repair the tractor is good, it also had new rear tires.

Bought a non running806 once put a whole rebuild in motor for the cost of about 4500 ( my labor) plus a pump. When tractor stopped staying in high and found reverse gear had missing teeth sent it to a auction got 3800.

Ask yourself - would you knock $500 off the price of a tractor that would run if it had new batteries rather than buying the batteries?

That tractor only looks like a $4500 806 to me, in running order. The tires are old, Cab is Junk. Put it this way: there's no way you can buy it for what they're asking, haul it home, make it run, and sell it for a profit. That's a money loosing proposition for you. If you wanted to use it, looked it over and deemed it ok, you could maybe make a deal. Too many what if's on a tractor you are only interested in flipping. -Andy

My opinion of the 806: 806 things that can and WILL go wrong.
My grandfather traded his JD 3010 D for an 806, 10-15 years ago. The 806 may have more power than a 3010, but we never knew it! 806 generally had 0 hp as it was generally down for repair.
You may have a better specimen, but after the one we had, I say RUN, don't walk, away, something might break just LOOKING at it!

I gave $4500 for an 806 Diesel in 1984 at an IH dealer. It ran good but needed paint and I decabed it.

You can't drag start an 806 unless it is a factory TA delete. It needs hydraulic pressure to activate the TA clutches to get power from the engine to the transmission.

$4500 for a non-runner is way too much IMHO.

Agreed. If it doesn't/won't start I wouldn't consider it at any price if you only plan on trying to resell it for a profit.

The biggest issue is the shifting linkage on the range/ reverse lever. (not going into reverse). You should be able to drag start it to hear it run. Does it have the RD pump if so they where offered a swap out type thing for the bosch system. Where are the doors for the cab. Should open and bottom half folds up next to the top half to swing over the fenders.
