Hey,Is it just me or has this gotten a little out of control.Seems like all of a sudden tractors are just to expensive.We have always looked to better our fleet when possible in little steps,now it seems every brand in any (or no)condition is worth far too much money.How do you feel? thanks-from almost out of business.....

I'm amazed some are still as cheap as they are. But like you i'm not willing to sacrifice my retirement for one. I use mine to plow my garden, drag dead timber for fire wood and snow plow the driveway. The John Deere crowd at auctions are what relly gall me. They will pay anything if it's green. I met a guy who had 17 trailer type JD plows at home and waas bidding on another.

Damn Yuppies. First it was pickups now this.

Just my humble opinion, but....what I have seen in recent years is that you will have someone who used one on there grandpappy's farm 40 years ago and now that they are doing well they want one for old times sake. There's nothing wrong with this. EXCEPT some of these guys are willing to pay WHATEVER it costs to get one. The next thing you know a tractor is sold at an auction for much more than it's worth (to you or me) and someone else at the auction has one buried in their barn and thinks, " well mine must be worth that". I think that is ONE of the reasons the prices are getting so ridiculous. Just my opinion, and what I have actually seen happen. Tom

yep, they are just going to get more expensive for one reason. They don't make them anymore(old tractors), you can't go to a dealer and say "I want a WD or CA or D-14". Beacause they are things of the past the price will naturally go up. Do I like the price going up?, H@ll no, but the most i ever paid for a tractor was $2500 for a G in perfect condition. the lowest was $600 for a C. I guess you just have to get ahold of the right people who don't know much about the value of tractors and pray they don't want what it cost in gold!

Today's Featured Article - A 1937 John Deere Unstuck - by Gary Hickman. Here is my story of how I got the pistons out of a 1937 JD B that the engine had been stuck for about 14 years: About 12 years ago my Dad gave me one of the tractors I ran as I was growing up on our farm in central Nebraska. The engine on this tractor, a 1937 John Deere "B", had been stuck for 2 years before he gave it to me. This last spring (1999) I hauled the tractor to our 2 acre lot in St. Libory Nebraska where it joined my antique machinery collection, at that time a 1929 Caterpillar T ... [Read Article]
