First post. I am located in Missouri near St. Louis and am getting ready to sell my John Deere GT 262. How do I determine what a fair value is for my tractor?
I agree, however, understand others will expect a better deal from a private seller over a dealership...even a 15 year old mower. I would love to have a GT262 as my backup mower. I really like the GT262s and was looking for them on varioius sites awhile back. Seems in my region (Chicago) a decent one from the early to mid 90s was running from 1K to 1.5K. Saw one in central Illinois that was in pristine condition, as well as photos can represent. Anyways, it looked like it was rarely used or VERY well maintained to include regular baths. It sold for $1200.00 Does yours have an hour meter? From a buyers perspective, that would help you. Always good to know how much it has been used. When the shock of my x320 purchase wears off my wife, in about 5 years, I will be seriously looking for a GT262 or a Toro Wheelhorse. In conclusion, I think there is a nice size market for a gear driven reasonably priced garden tractor. Good luck, nice machine!
