    Default New to the tractor world

    Hello everyone,

    I am a new member to this site. With all the threads, information I feel a little overwhelmed. I am having to do a crash course on learning about implements and selling my elderly fathers equipment. The implements arent too bad as I have found receipts for the cheaper items and know that he did not pay a lot to start with. I haven't had much problem figuring out what to sell the kubota rider at, but the massey ferguson is more challenging. I have the maintenance records for it, a friend is going to move it to find out how bad the tires may/may not be-definately has cracks. Do you replace the tires and sell it or discount for the cost of tires and sell it? The 2 rear tires are in question, one of my friends got quotes for the different tires from 450-600 range, wondering if it would sell faster if we replace tires. I realize this is basic stuff, but I am a female who grew up in the cookie cutter world not the tractor world. Any direction/input would be appreciated. Thank you.

    I think your easiest bet would be to post some pictures and general information about the equipment you have here. There is enough knowledge and expirence here to get you started on a price range to ask. Also region where the equipment is as well will help.

    Welcome to TBN.

    Home Made Receiver Hitch Ball Mount

    I took two pieces of scrap metal and welded myself up a slide in ball mount for the receiver hitch I installed on my truck.

    The Square tube was originally made to be installed into a receiver hitch as it came off an old wheel chair rack that mounted into the receiver hitch.

    The plate was part of a slide in camper tie down. I Pulled trailers with this ball mount for many miles without problems.

    If there is a reputable dealer near you, you might want to check with them to see if they would be interested in selling on consignment, if not, they may steer prospective buyers your way. Our dealer has referred equipment buyers to us.

    Posting pictures/details here can give you a ballpark, but prices will vary between areas; good luck.
