This is not my ad, folks, but I've watched it for awhile. It has been reposted a time or two so, apparently, it is not selling.
I know nothing about the condition of this tractor (or the PA rims) but it looks good in the photo. It has PS and pie weights. These options should add about $1,500+ to the price of the tractor. $5,500 would have been a good deal a few years ago but vintage tractors (not just Fords) are no longer selling well. These days, younger folks are buying new or used Kubotas. So am I. I own 5.
I've watched this tractor even though I'm not in the market because I've advertised my very good 55, 860 for several weeks at the same price with only a single call. My 860 has heavy F & R weights and dual (yes, dual) remotes but does not have PS or PA rims. PA rims are available but not included in the price. I well know the condition of my 860 and no nothing about the condition of the posted 861 but from the photo, they look similar.
Folks, this stuff is not selling.
My advise to the seller of the 861 is to strip the weights (maybe even the PS, if mechanically inclined) and sell the tractor at a reduced price. Sell the weights (looks to be a heavy set that will not allow full adjustment with PA rims) and, maybe even the PS separately.
Looks like that is what I will do with my 860. Strip the F & R weights and the dual (yes, dual (sorry, but this is one of my pet peeves)) remotes and sell the tractor for $3,500 - $4,000. Then sell the remotes and weights but only after the tractor sells.
The other alternative is to leave it, along with everything else, to my son who lives 1,800 miles away and cannot change his own oil.
Anyone have any other ideas?
