I'm looking at a JD 955 w/new paint, loader, backhoe (both factory), 12" and 30" buckets, 60" finish mower and tiller, boxblade, ind. tires, and extra rear turf tires. Tractor has 1300 hrs, tires about 60%. Priced at $14,900. What do ya'll think?

Seems like a lot of equipment for the money, but (I don't know, just asking), assuming a lot of the hours were on the hoe (else why would you have such a costly attachment), which doesn't wear rubber much, would those commercial tires have worn almost half-way in the hours stated?

An early one could be near twenty years old but with industrial tires worn that much and new paint I'd ask lots of questions beofre I jumped. I think they have the same engine as my 4310, if it came from a good home 1300 hours is a long way from worn out. I think they have a dry clutch, check the wear if you can. Auerbach is right, in todays prices that is a lot of equipment for the money. Go easy. Frank.

Frank, Just to note - I have a 755, I believe all "55" series are hydrostatic.

Hettric; Sometimes I think I remember everything, but as the Mrs. tells me, "Your fire has gone out, you're just blowin smoke". Enjoy your Sunday. Frank.
