    I just traded my 165 in on a kubota and got 2500. It was a 1967 with loader. Power steering needed work. I paid 5000 for it about 10 years ago and put about 1000 into it.

    I think $2500 must be the standard trade amount for old tractors...

    I have seen MF165 with loaders for around that price here in WNC,but then I also thought that price was a little high for the age of the tractor and for what else was out there.

    165's were 52PTO hp....Not 57.

    Kinda high compared to what they sell for here, and this is Massey country....Good 165's sell in the $4500 to $5000 range. A GOOD loader adds maybe $500 to $1000 tops.

    I saw a completely restored, low hour '74 165 diesel, new rubber, with MF200 loader sell for $6700 here last fall, and I never put a bid on it. (And I don't walk away from bargains)
    There are three kinds of men;
    1.) The ones that learn by reading
    2.) The few who learn by observation
    3.) The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.

    Typically, "trade value" is less than actual retail value.....

    A decent 165, even in need of some work, will bring $4000 at a minimum here. Add a loader and expect $500 to $1000 more (at max)

    I'd buy a dozen of 'em @ $2500!
