I am looking at a 1994 JD 870, 4WD, FEL with 1450 hrs. The asking price is $9800. Is this fair?

WHich loader does it have? they were generally equiped with one of two. I have the larger 440 on mine and it is a very powerful unit. As far as price, I would check the local library for the annual tractor pricing manual. As a comparison, mine is a 1996 with 250 hours in top shape, stored inside, (not just under cover) and is probably worth about $12,500. Age isnt so important, condition, hours and the care it has received are. Lots of people think its tough love to leave the tractor out in the rain and sun, but thats false economy. Good luck.

The JD 870 has 1385 hrs., FEL is model 80, A few dings in the body metal, Tractor starts great and runs great in a test run. The loader operates smoothly. The asking price is $9800. The owner buys and resales used tractors. He normally cleans them up, touches up the paint, and goes through the engine for tuneups. After he does these things, he will be asking $11,000 for the tractor. Is this a fair deal?

My JD dealer has a regional guide for used tractors that takes into account, hours, condition, and other factors to estimate a really good estimate of retail or trade in value. FOr example, my 1996 JD870 with 440 loader (larger than the one you are looking at) would retail for 14,500 to 15,000 here in the Pacific Northwest in excellent condition. There are other guides, but a regional guide seems like the way to go.
