I found a nice 1985 JD 212 locally, owner says it has an exhaust valve that sticks, and the deck looks rough, and "needs work". I was wondering what this is worth?
I'm going to look at it possibly tomorrow. The tractor and tires look fine. The deck, not so much. He said the exhaust valve sticks "occasionally." I have a deck for this tractor sitting in the barn. I'm not to sure about the exhaust valve issue though.According to Blue Book in rough Condition it is worth $374.00 for a 1985 212 in Good-Average condition it would be worth $440.00. :thThumbsU
Thats what I will offer him, provided I can hear it run.A lot depends on your local market but with a bad deck and a sticky valve I wouldn't go more than $200.00 unless rest of tractor is near perfect. It is worth more to you since you have a deck than someone who doesn't as finding a good deck can be tough and expensive.
