I have a wide-front, power steering, show quality WD-45; Good tires and the works. No sale! Neighbor has a good looking Int 574 gas with problems that he wants to trade even up. I have a hunch the problems all stem from hydraulic fluid leaks from steering seal. Stain signs under that area & no hytran on dipstick & no brakes & it doesn't want to go into gear. Should I trade a good running AC for a problem 20 yr newer Int?

Don't let go of your WD-45. You'll kick yourself for years to come.

We used to have a D-17, a WD-45, and a WD. Well when we downsized, they sold all three tractors (I bought the WD myself, as I couldn't bear to see it go, and it was the best priced of the three), but I'd have loved to have hung on to at least the WD-45 too.

He is willing to trade, isn't he? I would, too, if I were him. If I were you, I wouldn't consider this deal. If you want a 574 with problems, buy one and keep your WD-45. According to my blue book, a high vale trade-in on a WD-45 is $1200. This 574 would need to be considered below average. Trade-in for an average 574 is $1700, below average about $1000 or less - perhaps as low as $700.

On the other side, a really top 574 is worth more than a really top WD-45 on the retail market.

There is an old country song " We Must Have Been Out of our Minds".
The song would not apply but the title does.LOL

All in fun.

In short: No.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: JB Weld - by Staff. JB Weld is basically an epoxy glue that does an exceptionally good job of bonding to cast iron and steel along with several other materials. As I mentioned, it is so common that I have yet to buy a tractor that did not have JB Weld used somewhere. It is sometimes used so well you can't tell its there and other times used as a sloppy quick fix. Finding where and how it can be used correctly is key to whether you are using it as an "inelegant hack" or an integral solution to difficult and expens ... [Read Article]
