    Default L4850 value?

    I've seen a l4850 4wd with kubota loader and r4 tires on Craigslist and was wondering what the value was on it. I'm not sure of the year of it but what concerns me is it has 3875 hours on it. He's only wanting $6300 for it and it looks pretty good in the pics.

    The L4850 is a great machine - but 3875 hours is roughly equivalent to a car or truck with 200,000 miles on it. Many of its wear parts are increasingly likely to need replacement. Get it checked by a good tractor mechanic - make sure the transmission shuttle, hydraulic pump, engine and axles are all sound. The price seems attractive, but the deal would sour if any two of the big systems need rebuilding.

    $6300 smells like a scam.

    It has a local phone number listed so that made me think it wasn't a scam.
