Going to look at a ford 800 that is in very good condition. He is asking $3500. Is that too much ?

I have a significant anti-JD bias, so of course I'd say the Ford is better. But even looking beyond that, I see worn tires on the JD, and it seems like the 1010 is one that even the guys who bleed green say to avoid.

Two things to think about, 850 no live pto and I believe no power steering. Just my 2 cents.

Hello Tom,
Power steering was available in 1957 so it is possible to have PS in an 850. My '57 640 has ps.

I don't think anyone would laugh at that price, its a nice looking tractor, and with the new parts on it, should be good to go.

Make sure it holds good oil pressure though, if it doesn't, there is a reason he's getting rid of it.

I personally would probably try to get him to meet you somewhere in the middle for the whole package.

And definitly find out about that exhaust, I would change that to either a verticle with rain cap or back to the horizontal that runs under the tractor.

That is the one on Craigslist Binghamton, NY, correct? That is an odd exhaust setup on it. It appears the exhaust pipe is pointed forward. I would ask about that.

That sounds a little steep for this area, but as 64frd4000ind noted, it depends a lot on how you define "good" or "very good" condition.

I don't see a lot of Fords for sale in this area that aren't Ns, and that may affect the prices people are able to get for them.

Depends on where you live, and what 'good' condition means.

New Rear Tires can run close to $1000, fronts are cheaper.
A working loader in good shape can run anywhere from $500-$1500 depending on if its a trip bucket or a 725 loader.
Again location matters, things are cheaper here in Southern Illinois than in Texas.

In my area a Diesel will bring $500-$1000 more than a gas tractor.

In my area a Tricycle front end will subtract that same amount.

Paint, a GOOD new paint job can add $1000 around here, while a BAD brushed on job can Subtract $500 or more. While Original Sheet metal with just surface rust and no holes can be almost as desirable as a fresh paint job. Depending on the model of tractor.

Around here If it has a loader, runs, no smoke, original patina, no major rust, gas engine, with decent but not brand new tires, with a wide front end. I have seen them anywhere from $2500-$3500, Diesels up to around $4000, and fresh paint usually means you don't want to ask.

First off your correct both places. 800 is the series and 850 is the model which has a 5 speed and no live PTO. That said back in the early 80s we payer $3250 for an 841S with a loader and a plow. So may well be a good price if the tires are good and it runs well and does not smoke

Pricing tends to be regional. $3500 would get you a very nice 850 around here (n/w WI)...in fact, most 860's don't bring more than that. It should have new (or very good) tires at that price.

Quite a difference with or without the chains and blade. Tire chains can be had for $100-150 at auctions...less in the off season. The blade looks decent, but is not what I'd call "heavy duty". I'd give maybe $300 for the blade and chains. I don't like that exhaust, either..but I've seen worse. Any steel seat, Rest-O-Ride or otherwise, would get replaced on my tractor. Lights...probably a 12V conversion and he didn't upgrade the lights. Maybe he still has them somewhere. Not a big issue to me. I'd say $3500-$3800 for the package. Offer $3500, with cash in your hand. Worst he can say is no...

What do I think!! It has no lights, no rest-o-ride seat, no drawbar, 9N/2N steering wheel. Better through in the chains and the blade and maybe, $3500 around here

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
