I was visiting with a fellow the other day and he was telling me about a D-12 he has with a mower that he uses to mow his yard. He said he had another D-12 he bought years ago for parts. He has not needed any parts from it and said he was going to sell it for scrap. He said it was complete. I haven't had the chance to see it yet. Is it worth fixing up if it's not too bad, Cracked block or something like that. Thanks in advance. Johnny

I would say you should go back tomorrow morning and get that tractor no matter what the condition. in the last few years we have all lost alot of tractors and parts to the scrap man! I would love to have a D12 I use a D14 now and it is my favorite.

If it is too bad to fix I would think you could do well to part it out and sell parts, if you have time.

A D12 would be a very desirable tractor to collect. About 10,000 made i believe. Later series are worth more as Dave said.

Even with a cracked block, the sum total of the tractor is worth much more than scrap price. A cracked block is easily replaced, as D-14's use the same block, and the block was also used in power units, like pumps and generators. If its a series 3, its worth a LOT more.

If it is worth it or not all depends on what you want to do with it after you get it (fixed up). What ever that means to you.

If you are going to use it for work or play for years to come, in MHO it would be well worth it. If you have in mind to (fix it up) to sell, you probly will not be able to make your money back.

Today's Featured Article - On the Road with Dave Gohl: Deere Departed Friend - by Dave Gohl. Have you ever had to part with a dear friend? It's not easy. If it's due to death, your feelings could be in disarray for days, months or even years. Even now after almost 4 years, I still miss my dad. I remember when I was a kid my dad sometimes would tuck my brother and I in at night and we would ask him questions about his childhood on the farm. To this day, it's some of the best stories I've ever heard. And now, I'm so glad that I asked those questions, and if I were a little smarter i ... [Read Article]
