  • I just bought a very nice 1974 3000 with a front mount snow blade for $3900.

  • The Missus wants it, but I said it was about 3K too high. We bought an old orchard this summer and I do not think the 8N will be up to the amount of work we have ahead of us.

    I bought a mini ex this week.

    I would most likely insult the owner of this tractor if I made a 4K offer, so I will wait and see if it sits before making an offer.

  • I would make the offer now and let him think about it when it does not sell. You have nothing to lose.

  • They are great tractors But yes, it is priced much too high. In these parts $5500 would be about right.
    That 772 loader is also very good and will do the work he's showing but that platform is a bit light for what he's doing. It would be better on the 4000 platform which is heavier and has a better front axle.

  • I thought about it and sent him an email telling him I thought fair market value was in the $5000 range. I asked him to contact me if he was interested in discussing selling it at that price range. I did not want to make a firm offer prior to seeing it.

  • I'm a huge fan of the 3000, either gas or diesel, but I would not pay more than $5,000 in the current market, and my first offer would be half of his asking price.

  • Much too high, especially for a gasser.

    Cannot determine with certainty from the photos but it looks like it may be a 4 speed. Much, much, much too high if it is.
