I have a chance to purchase a used Century 2028 tractor for use on a small hobby farm. But I am having problems finding out much about it or what it would be worth. I have never purchased a tractor before but do know that this one has had very litle use and is in good condition overall (it has not been used at all over the last few months). Does any one have a rough idea of what fair market value would be for it? Any help on what would be a fair price (or price range) to offer for it would be greatly appreciated.

Muleydoc: I worked for a dealer that sold them they where distributed through American Jawa. They also distributed Zetors tractors in the US as well. They where built by Kukje in South Korea. Branson tractors where the same thing. They where not a bad import but they may be hard to get parts for today. The Branson model 2810 would be the same as the Century 2028.

Kukje and American Jawa got involved in a law suit over payments and distribution of them. I think Kukje won and American Jawa declared bankruptcy.

Here is what tractor-data says about them:
Century was a US trade name for compact tractors built by the Kukje Machinery Company of South Korea and distributed by American Jawa from 2000 to 2006. The Century brand disappeared around 2006 when Kukje consolidated its products in North America under the Branson brand and American Jawa moved to the TYM tractor line. Branson/Kukje assumed warranty and parts support for Century tractors."

I would go drive the tractor before even thinking about buying it. I hated how the controls worked and they handled. They where clumsy and crude. The engines had very little torque so you had to really run them revved up to do much.

If you have a hobby farm you would be better off to spend your money on a more farm type tractor. A JD 5210 or a Ford 3930 would be about the same cost or less and they are a good dependable real farm tractor that would be on the right size for your operation.

Thank you all for your advice. It sounds like it would be best for me to pass on this. I will look into a JD 5210 or Ford 3930 as a better option as suggested. I apprecaite everyone sharing their knowledge and expertise.

Don't do it. Get a brand name where you can get local dealer support. Check around and see what dealers you have close by. Then go from there. Just my opinion.

Why has it been setting for a while? Something broken and cannot get repairs? If it was me , I would forget it , no matter what the price is.
Repairs will be a pain to get in the future.clint
