JD 430 With Attachments

5106 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.

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.
