I looked at a really rough 340 (RC) gas yesterday evening. It ran a little rough, hyd leaks at the front, not a straight piece of tin on it and some missing, exhaust pipe "kind of" bolted down on the manifold, 1 new rear and one rotten rear tire, fronts fair. "3 point" is slow up and down. He wants $2,000. I'm thinking $1,200, maybe. It's hard to locate value on that model. Any thoughts out there? Thanks in advance! gm

Not only hard to locate value but hard to locate parts like the tin. They just didn't make very many of them.

340 is essentially a 460 rear end mated to a Super C front end.

Last fall bought a non-running 340 utility with a 2001 loader for $1,100 and was hoping to get it running. Discovered it had a bad engine and would cost me $$$$ to get it running, then decided to part it out. Sold loader, (needing bucket repair), fenders, sheet metal, lights and now getting close to breaking even (not including labor). Hoping to sell rear tires with spin out rims, front tires with axle and scrap the rest.

I have to agree with those above. $2,000 should get you a decent running older tractor. Consider the cost of 1 tire and fluid, if needed. Even at say, $1500, you're still behind the curve with all of the other problems it has. Hydraulics could be low on fluid, wrong fluid, or something like a failing pump, relief valve, or clogged screen. I can look past some bent tin, but being the exhaust and other items were haphazardly fixed, its kind of telling of how it was cared for in the first place. I will tell you that I paid $2,500 for my 444 w/ 1501 loader, but I have also been in a constant fight with it to get it working right, and I still may have some bad rings on one of the cylinders. I'm not one to shy away from something that needs a little help, but at some point you gotta weigh it out. Do you want the tractor for a project or for doing some work in short order? I don't mean to come across as being short. Just trying to save some aggravation, if possible.

$1,000 maximum. I'd have to think long and hard before offering $500.

More like 1K.. Not enough there to justify that expense. They are bigger than a Super C, but not much more powerful. Jim

Today's Featured Article - Tractors and Winter - by Staff. Unfortunately, tractors and winter don't mix well. It seems that I can start out with my tractors in great running condition but sometime during the long cold dark winter they quickly revert to the lawn-art category. The lack of running, cold weather, and admitted neglect all take their toll on a machine. If you are lucky enough to not need your tractors during the winter months you can perform a few simple maintenance items to winterize and come spring have them going by reversing the process. If you need your tractor in ready-to-run condition (like that ... [Read Article]
