 1700 Shibaura

Can anyone tell me what a 1700 Shibaura Tractor is worth in good condition. It comes with a trailer,front loader and box scraper with rippers? Thanks for any suggestions.

 1700 Shibaura

Really difficult to say. A Shibaura's worth might be comparable to a similar compact from Ford/NH, JD or Kubota to somebody who can do most of the maintenance and a known source of parts. Most places there are nothing like local dealers who can support the tractor, so the market value is considerably less to most people.

A thing to do might be to find a comparable tractor from a manufacturer that has a dealership near you. that price would at least provide a comparison and probably an upper-end value for the Shibaura. Then find somebody who has repair and parts manuals, somebody willing to work on the tractor and somebody who can obtain parts. Adjust the value downward if any of these support things seems shaky. If all these things seem shaky, I'd set a value that you're willing to walk away from if the tractor breaks down.

I'd also keep in mind that it's almost impossible to maintain a tractor without repair and parts manuals.
