I found a '63 3010 wide front gas tractor near my place. It has a syncro range transmission with a rebuilt pto and fresh fluids, owner says the work was done by a J.D. mechanic. It has a new radiator and alternator and new rear tires. The front tire on the land side is about 40%, the other is about 60%. It has straight tin, but needs paint.

I have only spoken to the owner by phone, but he say's it starts easy and shifts smooth with no smoke. He doesn't know how many hours are on it, and is asking $6,500 with no equipment and sounds firm on price. This sounds high to me but I don't know enough about John Deere equipment to be sure. Any suggestions or recommendations would sure be appreciated. Thanks.

I think what a lot of people do when pricing a piece of equipment for sale is to look in tractorhouse or machinefinder and see what dealers are asking, not realizing the mark-up the dealer has. That dealer has to make a profit (20-25%, who knows?) The point being you are not going to get as much as what the dealer is asking. With that said, I've seen many pieces of equipment and tractors bring more at a farm auction than a dealer is asking for the same thing. I guess it may be because they know the history of the equipment, or just don't trust dealers.

I believe you're absolutely right, I've seen it happen both ways myself. Another thing sellers don't realize is that most dealers will try to assist with financing options at those prices too.

This may sound foolish, but I really believe there are sellers that price equipment too high because they don't want to sell it. They just would if somebody would pay their asking price LOL. Thanks for your help.

Sounds real high to me. My dad just purchased a good running late 3010 gas with four good tires and recent paint at a public auction for $3750.00.

Thats sounds alot more realistic to me. I was guessing that the value was somewhere between $3500 and $4500 for a well maintained gas, and up to $5500 for a good diesel, but I wanted to ask folks that know for sure. I'm afraid the gentleman would really be upset if I made him an offer at this point. Thanks for your help.

Too much money for a gasser, I just missed out on a JD 4000, new rubber, new paint, batt, for 6500. I gave $3900 for my 3020 last summer, recent paint, 50% rubber, 3 point runs great, new seat, 3 point. Where are you in KS? I see a 3010 in good shape with a new clutch on Craigs list in St. Louis, Mo. It's listed for $3800.00. St. Louis is 3.5 hours from KC, I drive it often. $6500 is in powershift diesel late 3020 territory.

I'm just north of Wichita and about 20 minutes south of Newton. I'll check out that St Louis listing, that one sounds promising. Thanks for the info!

sounds high to me. I live in sw oklahoma. Gas tractor, no idea on hours, and needs paint. I would think $5000 would be on the high side.

Thank you for the reply. I figured $5,000 would be generous myself but I'm not very familiar with John Deere equipment or their repair cost. He told me he's the second owner of the tractor, and that the original owner used it for hay farming and sold it to buy a bigger tractor. By appearance I'd say it sat outside more than it was used, although it did see enough use to wear down two rear tires and a pto.

Today's Featured Article - Fordson Model N: Field Service Operations and Lubrication - by Anthony West. The daily or weekly servicing of any vehicle is of the utmost importance, and in days gone by when our favorite tractors were doing an important and Commercially vital job on the farm, these service operations would make a major difference to the running costs and economy of the farm. This being so, it surprises me to see how many enthusiasts attending rallies, shows etc, seem to be unaware of the importance of this constant attention. Possibly the modern machine with its 6,000 mile or even once ... [Read Article]
