I ran across a 1983 model International 245 4wd with 400 hours on it. It appears to be in very good condition with faded paint and straight sheetmetal and a strong sounding engine. They are asking $5900 for it. Looking in MachineryLink it appears the price may be a little high but maybe not considering the hours. It also says the engine is made by Mitsubishi and is 21 HP. My questions are: 1) Can it pull a 5ft. rotary cutter or would 4ft. be better 2)Is the 21hp engine or PTO 3)Does anyone know anything good or bad about this model and 5)Does the price sound fair?

Thanks in advance.

Tractortips doesn't list a 245 but they don't necessarily list all models. They do list a 244 at 21 engine hp. If it's the same engine that would put the pto hp down around maybe 18 hp. A 4' pto cutter would be a better choice for that size tractor especially if the rear tires track 4' or less and I still wouldn't expect it to whack 2" saplings very well.

I'm not sure which dealers might support the tractor now. Perhaps NH through the original Case/IH merger but it might be good to find if there is dealer support in your area.
