Report to Moderator

I am seeking information on the value of a D17 that I would like to sell in SW Missouri. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

We have recently purchased a new tractor and would now like to sell the D17. We've owned the tractor for 10-12 years.

It has a wide front end. The bearings were all replaced 2 months ago. The front tires are in fair condition and one new, never mounted tire is included.

The rear tires are 16.9 x 28 industrial tread, 8 ply in 90% condition. Brake drums and pads were replaced 2 months ago. Toatal cost of repairs for front bearings and brakes was $1400.

It has a loader that was originally a trip loader, but has been modified with heavier cylinders that also give down pressure. The bucket is wide and has been modified with short hydraulic cylinders to roll the bucket.

It has catagory 2 three point arms.

Tractor is in good running condition. No known problems of any kind.

A dealer won't offer you more than 50% of the market value, which for your tractor would be around $5,000. However, keep in mind that if you don't find an acceptable buyer, your tractor is at an age where letting it just "sit in the barn" can do more harm than good. Keep using it until it sells.

A serial number would be quite helpful, as would pictures. Also need to know about the hydraulic system that gives you juice to the loader, again pictures would be great. Pictures of the hitch would help also. $2500 isn't too bad for an early series but the loader could add some to that. A dealer has to make a profit you know, so he needs some room to do that. If it is not a series 4 tractor, then you will have to find just the right person to get much over $3500 for it I'd think, but pictures and serial number will sure help use figure that out for sure.

Thanks for your reply, Bob,

From the number on the clutch housing, we are pretty certain that this tractor is a series 1.

The tractor has brake drums and the switch to disk brakes came with the series 3.

Dealer offered $2500 and for that, it will stay in the barn for a long time.

Series I-1000-31625. II- 32001-41540. III-42001-72768. IV-75001-89213. Series IV has the independent hydraulic pump on the right side of the tractor, where a belt pulley would bolt on with the earlier series. Brake drums, as opposed to the drum/disc setup on the III, indicate an older tractor, and at $2500, I think the dealer was plenty generous. That's typical for a private sale around here, with average rubber. His customer would expect some warranty with it.

Well, if it is a series 4, than $2500 is way to cheap. If it is a series 1 like you think, I'd have to say $2500 from a dealer is right in the ballpark. They will want to make some on it. Selling it outright I'd venture to say you have a $3200 tractor, without seeing photos. I had a D-17 series 1 with new paint, tires, and ran like a swiss watch. I had a heck of a time to finally get $2800 for that. Had a wide front also.
