I am interested in purchasing a 1993 JD 755 4WD Hydro. Has a #70 loader and industrial tires, and a 5' Woods Brush Hog. What is a fair price?

This tractor has approximately 1100 hours on it and it needs the fuel injection timing done.

The tractor is worth around $7500 give or take in fair condition. Depending on the condition of the loader and rotary cutter, maybe add another $750; preferably less. They are pretty subjective as there is no telling about wear and tear on them, at least beyond what is obviously apparent. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Why does it need the pump timed?

It has new glow plugs, but was still hard to start. Also, the owner used a galvanized fuel container for years, and from what I understand this is a no no with diesel fuel.

Not trying to sound like a stick in the mud; but this is starting to sound less and less like a good deal. I have this feeling in my bones that ether has been used to start this tractor and the compression is down to the point that the owner was trying things like replacing the glow plugs, etc. Why did he replace the glow plugs? I can see replacing one or two but not all. Even if the owner used a galvanized fuel can for years and the zinc flaked off in the fuel tank; the engine fuel filter should have caught it. Fuel injection pumps don't loose timing unless someone has had it apart or been "fiddling" with it. I would suggest you look deeper into this deal and ask some more detailed questions.

It appears that Ether was used to start this tractor. It was used extensively by a farm hand and cans of ether were found in the barn where it was stored. All 3 glow plugs were replaced by me because we thought that would cure the hard starting problem. I did some of the maintence on this tractor, oil changes, etc... however, there were other people using it. Once it finally starts, it runs fine and as long as it is warm it fires right up.

Sounds to me like this tractor is an "ether baby". Ether is EXTREMELY hard on a diesel engine and if used in an abusive or ignorant of facts manor, can crack pistons, and even bend a rod. It also causes loss of compression which is why this tractor is difficult to start. NEVER EVER use either in a diesel. Only situation I could see using it in is if the engine has thousands of hours and is already worn out and hard to start. Even then, I would say it is time for a rebuild. You don't want this tractor. If it required ether to start in warm weather. It will be nearly impossible to start in cold weather. Save your money and keep looking for a well maintained tractor. Sorry about your negative experience, but at least you found out before you bought it.

Thank you Chief for responding to our post your information
was an eye opener. We will continue on our quest for a tractor that can handle our needs here on our 10 acre farm. Basically, what we need is a 30 - 40 horse power tractor with 4 wheel drive, a loader, and a brush hog. We have a long driveway and can't shovel it all by hand when it snows. Of course, price IS an object. We are considering a Kioti or New Holland, possibly new, so we don't get someone elses problem. Your thoughts would be most welcome. Thanks again!

You're more than welcome. You still may want to take a look at some of the new tractors. There are alot of really good incentives with most of the tractor manufactures that get the payments down to a very reasonable amount. I would say that in your case a John Deere 4310, 4410, or 45/4610 would be suited to your tasks with the 4310 being the best buy. If you are not concerned about hydrostatic drive a John Deere 790 or 990 would be ideal. These are both great and reliable tractors for the money. I personally like the 990 for the hp range you specify. Kubota also makes a very good tractor that holds up well. I would just caution you to let the buyer beware if you buy a used tractor. There are alot of good deals out there and not so good deals as you have seen. Look around like you did seeing the ether in the barn. Ask questions about servicing. If the tractor is warmed up when you arrive; walk away. ALWAYS test demo the tractor stone cold. Pay close attention to clutch performance and hydraulics. I don't have any experience with the Kioti tractors but have heard many owners praise them highly. I have had very bad experience with New Holland but that was with a TW-20 ag tractor. If you compare the John Deere 790 and 990 with the rest of the field, I think you may find that they are VERY competitively priced. I am sure some of the other guys on the board will jump in here with some suggestions on other color tractors that have experience with them. Good luck with your search.
