DW,

I'd say it's is a bit on the high side -- not a Great Deal.

If you are truly interested in this tractor, you might want to offer the fella 8700, and then work with him from there. I wouldn't go over 9200.

Don't know what an MMM is, but with the FEL, make sure it's 4WD and it works OK.

It does sound high for a small used tractor, but it's a good brand, the loader is a costly attachment, and it's relatively new. I'd guess it's twice that new.

Auerbach,

You're right. One would expect to pay a little more for this tractor when purchasing from a dealer. However, I'm guessing the guy is selling this tractor outright, simply because a dealer wasn't going to him much for it.

When buying from a private seller, there is usually a little more wiggle room when making a purchase.

MMM is mid mount mower, sorry for the confusion, thought I was being cool using the tricky abreviations! The tractor is 4 wheel drive. I thought it was a little high, but it is close by, seems to be well maintained. I am a little worried about the tractor being underpowered with 17 hp. Is this a legitimate concern? I need the tractor to rototill, use a post hole digger and move some rocks around. Thanks for any help!

Darren

Darren,

The B1700 is a bit on the small side. It will handle a small tiller just fine. It will not handle a 5 foot tiller, but it might handle a 4 footer.

If you have any doubts at all, it's always better to take the time to find the right tractor, than to settle for something that won't do the job for you.

For about 2000 dollars more, you should be able to get yourself a tractor that will do everything you want it to do.

Joel

Joel,

I agree with your statements. I was pretty impressed with the unit until I checked the hp ratings. I found a B7500 w/o the FEL, but with a bush hog for 6700 with 108 hours. Good price, but I wanted the FEL so I figured I would wait rather than try and find a FEL for that machine....Oh well, half the fun is looking I suppose!

Darren

Darren, I should have twigged onto "MMM." Those are almost twice the cost of a rear mower. They're a bit harder to service, attach, detach and store, but they don't increase the length of the unit and they make it more stable, therefore safer when using the loader. Now the price seems ballpark.

Tractor HP is not like car HP. One with twice the ponies won't do twice the work, but will do it faster with bigger attachments. There's nothing a bigger one will do that yours won't while using less fuel (and more time). The present and future attachments are matched to the power. How wide the tiller depends on how deep you want to go into what. Again, if it's a bit too big or small, you just go slower or faster.

The tires will last half the 80-yr lifetime of the tractor so check it has the tread you want (turf for mowing, ag for digging and dozing).

A B-1700 is the same basic tractor as the 7500. There has always been three basic models in that B-chassis. They have been good tractors.
Transportation costs are gaining every day it seems!

Found one yet? I am now selling a B1700 with FEL & MMM with 350 hours. Always garaged and in great shape front to back. I was offered $6000 by a dealer and would be happy to meet you half way at $8000.

Jeff Metzger, Maineville, OH (NE Cincinnati)
