 JD 770 price/advice

I'm new to tractors and presently looking at a 2001 JD770, 4wd, mower and loader and 1655 hours for $12000. Is this a deal or should I stay away because of the hours. It appears to be taken care of.
Thanks

 JD 770 price/advice

If you were told that the tractor was a 2001 and it IS a JD 770, either they dont know what they are talking about or they are lying to you. The last year that JD made the 770 was 1998, after that it became the 790. As for the cost, it seems a little on the high side, for 1600+ hrs. The hours dont bother me but I just upgraded my '89 770 for a mint '96 770 w/ 375 hrs for $7k, after I got a 419 loader and hyd valve, I was still under 10k for a showroom condition tractor.

You can check the year of the tractor by serial number on http://www.machinerylink.com, I don't think that the price guide is that accurate because it doesnt say what is included in their average retail prices loaders? mowers? nothing?

I think you should be in the $8,000 - $9,000 range or lower. I researched the x70 series this winter, they were sold from 1989 to 1998. As a comparison, I bought a 1997 970 with 880 hours, 4wd, 440 loader and Woods 7500 backhoe for $12,000. The backhow needed new bushings and pins but the tractor is in very good shape.
