4000SU's are great tractors, I have one, plenty of power for their size and much better brakes than 2-3000 drum brakes.

The sweep back axle design isn't the best setup for a front end loader but lots of tractors with that style axle out there with loaders being used daily.

Around here a SU will sell for around $1000 less than a 4000 all purpose with the heavier front axle, I have mine insured for $4500 but probably wouldn't sell it for that price, no loader on mine but it did have before I got it, thus the reinforced radius arms,"Angle iron welded to the bottom of the radius rods to keep them from bending."

Although some prefer the SOS trans, most times it devalues the tractor a fair amount, around here they have a bad rep and are hard to sell.

Cousin recently purchased a early 4600SU with loader, gave $6900, but as I said with your tractor having a SOS trans I can't put a fair dollar value on it.

One think I will say is if I were looking at it I'd ask how many hours were on the old tach and if the alternator was a recent conversion.

If the conversion wasn't recent I'd ask how long it was run without a working tach.

I can tell it doesn't have a working tach, no tach drive on the back of the alternator and the wrong tach for one driven by the oil pump drive.

Other wise it's a nice looking tractor and loader.
