 1989 Long 610 Tractor need opinions

Hi I found a Long Tractor for sale near by but am inquiring advise before i think about making an offer. I spoke with the guy briefly about it and its a 1989 '73HP' diesel with loader, 4WD, and canopy Front tires are new and rear tires are loaded. He said it has about 1000hrs on it...he said when he purchased it after 50 hrs. the meter stopped working... so I am not to sure if he's pullin' my leg as far as honest hours but he did claim he put roughly 300-400 on it when he bought it... Also If any one could give me some advise on what to look for on these tractors and what a reasonable price would be for this tractor. Thank you.

 1989 Long 610 Tractor need opinions

First not sure you can get any support on Long tractors now. The company that was Long pulled up and out leaving dealers and everybody with no support. There was talk of I think Montana buying them but not sure that happened. By support I mean parts. There are old Long dealerships still in business who can do the work.

As to the tractor they are a simple machine on the rough side compared to such as the US brands or Kubota. The hyd pumps run less capacity than comparable models of others brands when I looked at them about 1999. In short just older design than many other machines. In their older design not as comfortable nor as user friendly. Yet are tough machines and normally wear well.

Now my last recommendation was my first one, be sure on parts. The price on them dropped greatly when all this happened. I have a friend who was one of those dealerships left holding the bag. The last we talked nothing positive had happened with parts.
