  • 841 good price?
  • This has been up for a while and the owner just dropped the price $1000. I am looking for a tractor to brush hog, back blade and drag harrow with. My 8N runs but it needs some work and I am worried that it isn't up to the task.
    How low would you offer? I haven't looked at it yet.

    Thanks, Frank

  • I just bought an 861 for 4000 that has just about everything replaced and new rubber all around. 70 hours since engine rebuild and clutch and transmission refreshed and an excellent paint job. It does have the two-stage clutch naturally being it is an 861.

  • There are a couple similar 84x's currently listed on my local Craigslist. Prices range fron 2500 to 3500. I really like the looks of the Powermaster tractors but if I was looking for a work tractor not a collectible that's way more money than I would spend on a 60 year old tractor with a fresh coat of paint....

  • When it came up for sale a couple of months ago, I was commenting to my wife that it looks too pretty for what I need it for. I would probably want to wash and detail it every time I took it out and got it all dirty.

  • I think the 841 is a really good working tractor, and is the only 80x model that you can add a Sherman combo transmission to. It's a good loader tractor, if it has power steering.

    One red flag - he said he did "...a nice job on it...." - but, he painted the plug wires, distributor cap and more. Those kind of paint jobs on a tractor for sale often cover things up like leaks, cracks, etc. I would look at it in person, start it, drive it in all gears, put an implement on it and raise it and see if it drifts down - the usual due diligence when buying a used tractor but maybe more given that type of paint job. If it checked out, I would only offer $3,500. You can now find good working Thousand Series tractors in this price range and I'd take one of them over this all day, every day.

  • Thanks for pointing out the paint job Bruce. I probably would have ignored that. Ed, I just may follow up on the 2000. A guy down the road from me has one and even though it is a bit beat, it is solid for him.
