I'm in the market for a 50-60 hp tractor for a truck farm I am starting up. I am a bit sticker shocked by the prices I am seeing in the Northeast for 30 to 40 year old tractors, most decent general purpose or row crop suitable tractors at dealers seem to be going for 6-9 grand, and some pretty junky ones are out there for 5. Anyways, does anyone have experience with 1982 AC 5050 Diesel, PS, 3pt, lpto, 1 remote, 1200 hours, sheded and not worked hard, v. good condition? Were they reliable, any weird quirks, how hard to find and expensive are parts?
What is ball park figure on $ value?
THANKS for any help! Money that took me 10 years to save is pouring out of me like sweat!!!
