 What's a 1996 Steiner 525 worth?

I was considering buying a 1996 525 with 23 hp Kubota engine. 725 hours on the machine. Implements include slip bucket and 72 inch mower. Seller wants $8500.00.
Any input would be appreciated.

Finding info. on these things is like pulling teeth. Don't know much about these. Personally I would think twice about a tractor such as thing unless you have a special circumstances use for it. Once you buy this tractor, my feeling is that you will be stuck with it for a long time should you not like it later. On the other hand it may be just what you need. I would carefully research parts & maintenance support. By the pictures shown, this unit does not appear to be all that heavy or heavy built. Makes me wonder how it would perform traction wise and on slopes. (no ROPS) Does not look like you will be able to use standard 3 pt. hitch equipment either.

 What's a 1996 Steiner 525 worth?

hi i am a retired commercial lawn and garden sales rep
stiener started in orhville oh. they are now in johnson creek wis. in the old ransomes bobcat factory i sold the 1986 s-20 4wd tractor in the madison wi area. the park district own a number of them and i sold many to commercial landscape contractors. i just sold a used 1987 s-20 w/ 60" mower and 48" tiller for 12,500 8 years ago. it had 950 hours on it. we short blocked the 20hp onan and replaced the main pump and drive motors with factory rebuilts. this is not typical of the durability of these units, this one ran all it's life on steep hills. the first 5 i sold are still in service and have over 2500 hrs on them. dealer cost on the s-20 was over $8500 without deck in 1986 the 48" deck sold for $1k dealer cost the 60" $1.4k. if the unit slows down at full throttle in high range after about 2-5 hrs under load the pump needs a rebuilt or replacement. even if it does i would buy it since a new one is about $14k last i heard

The 2002 price list is 18,495 with a 28 HP Kubota engine.
If it runs decent the price should be right. The tractor is still being built and parts still available. It is manufactured in Johnson Creek Wisconsin. The parts are still shipped from Dalton OH but that is all we do there anymore. Unfortunately when you are owned by a large corporation they do things that end up being detrimental to customer loyalty. I would sooner buy one of the older ones than the newer ones at this point. If you bought it and have problems I can put you in touch with some dealers if need be.
