Just want some of your opinions on this. I have a 48 Cub(which is for sale). I have contacted a dealer with a 450 it needs new rear tires and one rim. It has a fast hitch and good TA. it has decent paint and good sheet metal, needs some general mantainance work. For my cub I have a set of cultivators, a woods belly mower, and front blade. The cub is in great mechaical shape (fresh overhaul on the engine in 99) and the paint is good but not perfect. I have been using it to mow my yard. I paid $3200 for the cub last year. The dealer wants my cub and $500 for the 450. He has a good used set of tires that should fit it I was going to ask him if he would throw those in too. What do you guys think is it a good trade??

Thanks guys,I was thinking the same as you guys. I have to much money in the cub to make the trade. He was not really interested in trading even. My cub is for sale if anyone is interested.

In my opinion, with your cub and $500, that's $3700 for a 450 with poor rear tires and needing some minor work. That seems a little bit high to me. Seems that tractor is worth around $3000 or so, give or take some. What are they asking for the 450 out right? I would sell the cub as you are doing, then maybe go see about that 450 and/or keep shopping around. Maybe if the dealer threw in the tires and fixed the small things you say are wrong with it, and have them change all the fluids, then maybe it is an okay deal.

I have to agree with Sod. You never come out buying used at a dealer with a trade-in. They got to make money too. You'd be better off selling the Cub outright, then if you really like the 450, deal on it outright, or find yourself a nice 300, or 350 Utility, and put some money in your pocket and take the ol' lady out for dinner.

Do what you want but keep in mind, you know all about your cub now, the 450 may have some negative unknowns. I would bet you could find a 450 or equal tractor for less from an individual if you are patient and keep an eye in the classifieds. I know your dilemma, I get trading/buying on my mind and it consumes all my conscious thought, but I have learned more patience after getting burned a few times. If your cub is useful to you and you know it is mechanically sound, keep it. If you need a bigger tractor for somethings, look around and find a cheap one, fix it up and you will know all about it. Good luck either way but I agree with SOD, keep the cub.

No. Keep the cub, because the 450 will make ruts in your yard. Buy the 450 if he comes down in price. Inspect the 450 real good. compression test andlook at the fluids, and whatever else you can think of... Or else, you can keep your eyes open for something like that at an aution... it's more fun to be on the hunt and find a treasure.
good luck sod

Today's Featured Article - Massey Ferguson 35 (and up) Tractor Assembly Notes - by Jack Wetmore. These assembly notes are for Massey Ferguson tractors with a two stage clutch and 6 speed, 8 speed and mutli-power transmissions. I see a lot of discussion forum messages regarding damaged clutches from improper assembly. The objective is to have the engine and transmission slide together safely and easily until the gap between the two halves is less than 1/4", BEFORE tightening any of the bolts holding the two together. Using bolts to draw the two halves together will damage the PTO ... [Read Article]
