Hello to All, I have the chance to purchase a fantastic condition JD 140. Very low hours, profesionally reconditioned with a front plow only for attachments. Looks brand new.... I have seen but not yet heard her run... I am told she runs strong and oil free. She was redone about 10 years ago. Was run very little for those last 10 years. Has been stored inside and covered with tarp and has seen little daylight... I almost choked when I saw it... It was his dads, been in the family since new at about 1970. He is considering the sale and price at the moment. My question is, what would be a reasonable price for this tractor. It is I have stated, flawless...

Thank you,

Don

The plow, if it's power angle, is worth $450, maybe more this time of year. I personally would not give more than $1,000 for the tractor itself, but I'd have to see it and drive it. There are likely others who would give more.

Would also make a difference if it is an H-1 or H-3 (spools of hydraulics, 3 levers is the H-3) H-1 I would give about $500 - $700, H-3 $800 - $1000.

If it is the later 140H3. With the deck and front push blade. And allthere in nice condition. I sell them Form $1850.00 to $2500.00 If they look nice and well kept up you can get good money for them. and customers will pay;; Good luck keep us posted on the machine;

Location will have a lot to do with price on this. There was an H-1 sold in my town last week in good shape for $400!

Got a much better look at the machine this am... It is a 140H3... It has 3 levers on the left side of the tower, as well a power angle on the plow... The machine looks incredible... Still waiting for the word from the owner...

Later...

I wish you luck, it sounds great.

If for some reason you can't take it, let me know. I have a brother in MA that is looking for one and would go to NH for it without a second thought.

I have bad news. The owner of this JD140 has decided to keep it due to sentimental reasons... It belonged to his dad. Can't say I blame him. Recently lost my "Pop" back in August... He will keep me in mind when he decides it's time to sell her... Take care...

Not to sound like a arse.. I'm glad he decided to keep it.. I have my dads 112.. It will never go anywhere.. He would regret it for the rest of his life if his dad liked that JD at all.. You will find another one.. BUT there is only one in his eyes.. and its THAT ONE. :trink40:
