Hi, I have some questions for anyone out there...I have a 530 Case Backhoe that I need to either fix or sell as is. I just 4 months ago replaced all the hoses and back cylinders. I have owned it for the the past 30+ years and used it very little. Now it doesn"t want to start and I have 2 other tractors so I don"t need it anymore.
So my questions are; How do I find out what it is worth? What is best way to market it for sale? It is located in Northren California.
Any help with this is greatly appreciated.
Thank You!

Thank you so much for your advice. It is diesel and in fair condition for it's age but it could use new paint.

I will have the starting problem evaluated to see what going on and if I should get it fixed before selling it or just walk away.

I never thought to put it on Craigslist or Ebay, I was thinking only Tractor sites with classified ads. Thanks again!

Overall condition will still play a roll in how much your machine is worth, even with it not running. Is it gas or diesel? Tires good? Breaks or welds on boom/loader? It might be best to troubleshoot the starting pproblem , even if you don't fix it, just to give a prospective buyer some kind of idea what it would take to repair it. All of those things will go a long ways towards determining if it's a fixer-upper, or a parts machine. eBay and Craigslist are a couple of ways to sell your machine that will reach more people than just putting a sign on it next to the road somewhere.

Just speaking in general terms, I'd say it'd be worth twice as much if it were running.

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Corn in Southern Wisconsin: The Early Years - by Pat Browning. In this area of Wisconsin, most crops are raised to support livestock production or dairy herds in various forms. Corn products were harvested for grain, and for ensilage (we always just called it 'silage'). Silo Filling Time On dairy farms back in the 30's and into the first half of the 40's, making of corn silage was done with horses pulling a corn binder producing tied bundles of fresh, sweet-smelling corn plants, nice green leaves with ear; the ...
