  • Buford
  • Need to know the value of a 1985 1310 Ford. Everything seems to work good and can't find any leaks. The tires have a lot of tread BUT there is a lot of weather checking. It has a new battery on it and runs and starts good. Manual steering. No rust and hydraulics work good. Dual range seems fine. The hour meter is missing but I doubt has done much more than sit because of it's size engine. Located in TN. Several folks looking at it. Can you give me an idea on value? Thanks

  • Use Google to find information and price information. You can look at Ebay completed auctions to see if any have sold recently, and what the sale price was. Just add "parts" to your google search and you'll get an idea of parts availability.

  • Does it have the front pto.?
    Made in Japan.
    They sold new for 8k.
    Less hp then your 8n.
    Is it 4wd?
    I would say 1500 to 2k in good shape.
    But that would depend on how many hours?

  • Not 4wd. Hour meter removed by previous owner. No leaks, sounds good and all hydraulics work good. Not sure where made. Thanks.

  • Googled them for sale. Range was 3500 to 5500. In good shape.
    Look at the pedals, if they are worn means lots of hours.

  • The rear tires have most of tread left but extremely weather checked to me indicating has sat up a lot.

  • Asking the value of something like a used tractor without pictures at least is like your wife asking you if you think that dress makes her look fat. We can't make judgments based on the little information given, and even then, it'd only be a guesstimate. Anything 'new' on a item for sale indicates that maybe there is a problem area being masked. A new battery could mean it had been setting a long time, non-starting issues, and always be leery of a 'new paint job' as it often is an attempt to hide oil leaks and rust spots. 1310 Model. OK. Isn't that one of the Japanese built units from the 80's? Whatever you may buy, check into parts and service. If parts are not easily available, run away. you best look at ebay and the other auction sites for similar models and what they are going for. Compare. You should post some pictures when asking this. Someone may spot something you missed. Just giving my advice...

  • This is a diesel and the sheet metal good except some repairable damage to the left fender.

  • Couldn't buy it. He had to have 4k. Too much in my opinion for a specialty tractor. Can't really do field work with it to any degree.
