 88 JD 855 4x4 Price

Looking for you guys expertise on this as I'm not postive that this is a good deal. I'm looking at a 88 JD 855 4x4 that has 1500 hours on it. It has a 72" JD belly mower deck, a 2000 model JD 420 Loader and a 5' bush hog (Farm Rite 5 I think) behind it. The tractor has turf tires on it. I'd rate the condition as good with the hood having some paint scuffs and should be painted to make it sharp. Starts great and seems to run out OK. The best I can get this thing is $8500.

What about it now, jump on it? or run from it? Need to do something on it tomorrow.
Thanks
JJ

With all that equipment in good shape, the deal sounds reasonable. I did not know you could get the 420 loader on an 855. It normally takes a 70A loader.

I bought the thing. It is a 420 loader on it. It sure is a light tractor and seems top heavy.

The 420 is for mid size compacts and the 855 is a small compact like the 4115 size so I imagine it would feel top heavy. Be careful overloading the front axle with that size loader.

Yeah I thought the 420 was a bit big. I did not know it would even fit. The 855 only weighs 1900 lb naked. I will bet that the 420 loader is over 1000#, though I can not find any loader weights in any of the JD manuals. So Sad

I thought that it was a big loader too. I don't know whether to keep the loader or try to down size to a lighter one. Guess I'll take my time and decide.

I would like to pickup a service manual for a 855 if anybody has one. What kind of oil goes in the rear differential? Anybody got a copy of a manual that could scan the pages about changing the oil in the trans/rearend for me or have a manual to sell?
Thanks guys,
JJ
