    Default 1980 John Deere 2240 pricing...

    I'm selling my 1980 John Deere 2240 2WD. It has no FEL, but has under 750 hours, and in good condition. It has a factory sun top with ROP and a rear remote. I started at $9,900, and then down to $8,500 on craigslist a couple months ago with no luck. I relisted it at $7500 today and have two interested buyers already. Am I giving it away at $7500??

    Thanks for any input.

    If those interested parties don't workout I would be interested in it. Been looking for a tractor to use for bush hogging in this size. Pm me when you find out the fate of the other interested parties. Got any pics?

    If you can't get $7500 out of it, keep it. It is worth more than that as a backup. And with that low of hours, is almost new....

    I think that number would be a close starting point if it had a loader, though I'd expect to be negotiated down a bit. Without a loader, I think you are still overpriced.

    yes im prolly over priced on my guess a good bit.but it sounds like a slightly used tractor thats still like new.the truth is id keep the tractor if it was me.because its not worth much over $4000 with or w/o the loader.

    I would have paid that 18 years ago when I bought my 2030. But now about $6000 would be tops.
    I assume it's 8spd collar shift, not a reverser.

    If you are getting responses from the $7500 listing price then negotiate from there. See if someone is willing to pay enough for you to part with it. I know that sounds like a silly answer but thats the way it is. I have an older Deere 820 with canopy in good shape I am considering selling and am in the same boat. Probably could have traded it in when I bought the 4520 but didn't. Nice to have a spare tractor for backup when needed but most of the time it sits, better for someone else to buy and use.
