JD 430 With Attachments

5083 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  PA318Guy
Hi guys, I have a 1985 430 with a plow, 48 mechanical tiller, 60" deck, chains, wheel weights, weight brackets, front and rear, and all the other pieces that go with the attachments. The tractor has 1550 hours on it. It runs really well, drives well, tires are new on the front and backs are ags that are ok. cosmetically its in good shape, nothing broken, bend, damaged.

What would something like this be valued at? Should I sell it off in pieces or should I try an sell it all together?

Thanks for the help.

430 wdeck in decent shape $2500 - $3500 depending on location and yours must have a rear PTO so add $700 to that. Mechanical tiller again in decent shape $1500 - $1750, need more info on the plow to give a value (3 pt or Brinley, with or without coulter, Moldboard size etc...) What type of wheel weights, Plastic or steel, front and rear weight brackets around $125 apiece.
its a 54 blade with the frame extension, and the wheel are cast iron.

Thanks for the response

$2500 430
$1200 tiller
$800 pto
It depends on your goal as to whether you piece it out or sell it whole. As a whole unit, the price will be less than the sum of the parts. You may only get $4,000 for the whole package.

If you want to move at least some of it fast, yes, piece it out. You will make the most money in the long run this way.

Consider offering the tiller and PTO (with wiring harness) as a package deal so you are targeting the entire 316 (Onan), 318, 322, 330, 332, 420, 430 crowd.

Keep the frame extension with the tractor, as they are getting harder to come by and make the tractor more attractive to a buyer.

The blade can go either 420 or 430, so it's a good item to sell stand-alone.

Wheel weights fit everything so they can be a separate package.

Now the downside to this is that you need to sell things in order. A buyer would want to see things in action, so the tractor has to go last.
Adam, the blade I would say about $500 - $650 with frame extension, steel weights about $150 - $175 and chains (2 link) about $50.
