I’m looking into purchasing this tractor with a 6ft finish mower. I’m trying to decide a fair offer and if I should pass on this tractor or not.

What I know about the tractor:
The hours are unknown but it runs AWESOME. The hour meter was replaced
The tires have good tread
One of the tie rods is slightlybent
The brakes work great


Intended use/plans:

Mowing 10acre pecan orchard
Hope to find a FRont end loader for us


What’s this tractor worth/what should I offer?
Will parts availability be ok?

I’d like to update this thread a year later

Parts are in fact easy to find for the most part.

It’s also been fairly reliable as well especially considering it’s age/hours.

Here a few pictures of it.

Also included one of the wife mowing with it and some gauges I changed on it.

I need to rewire it and fix the leaky injector pump soon.

Well it wasn’t a direct swap like I hoped but I was able to get it installed all the same with some trimming of the factory mounting provisions and adding some brackets to offset the stress caused by said removal.

I also had to trim the shroud a bit and the hood fits worse than before but it’s never fit nicely so...

But now I have a radiator that doesn’t leak and has a larger core than stock.


I mow this weekend and we shall see if I did a worthwhile mod or not.
