I have a chance to purchase a SH2643, sn:100143, 26 hp.

Can anyone give me an idea how old this machine might be? It has been refurbished and is only showing 5 hrs on the hour meter. The owner is asking $7,200.

Is this a good deal, or should I keep shopping?

Thanks

Sorry, I don't know much about this model but I'll offer up a few comments you probably don't want to read.

For one thing I sure wouldn't trust the hour meter.

For another thing, "Refurbished" means a LOT of different things to different people. It could mean nothing more than a pressure washing and checking the air pressure in the tires or they could have checked all systems and replaced some minor parts. Who the heck knows? If you get this tractor you should insist on a written report of some kind of what they did to refurbish it.

Has this tractor ever had a stateside owner? You might ask and see if you can talk to the previous owner if there was one.

Out of curiosity I did a little googling on the SD2643. I found that it's 31 hp, not 26. It's supposed to be similar to the Ford NH 1910. The prices I found ranged from $3k-6k so the price may be a little high depending on what all comes with it.

Still curious. Assuming the SD2643 is the same as the Ford 1910 (Ford was made by Shibaura) it had 31 gross engine hp and 24 pto hp. The Ford 1910 was made from 1983-1989 and cost around $9800 brand new. According to machinerylink.com, a 1986 Ford 1910 4WD is worth $7030 in premium (perfect) condition, $6333 in good condition, and $5642 in average condition. Given these prices I think your price is a little high. Personally, I'd rather have the Ford 1910 - that way you could get parts and support at a Ford-NH dealer.

Would this be your first tractor? What part of the country are you in?
I would think that in this price range you could buy a clean
one owner machine that you know the history of.
good luck.

Thank you for your answers.
Yes this would be a first tractor. The person who is selling it now bought it from an auction. He has no other history on it. He doesn't even know what year it is.
I was wondering if anyone could tell the year by the serial number?

If it is a refurbished one from an auction with low hours. I would stay away from it. It is a Viet Nam reconditioned tractor that probably was returned because it had problems & taken to the auction to dispose of rather than to repair it. Some one is trying to make a buck on it & probably will not be able to support it after you purchase it. I receive alot of parts inquires on these "reconditioned" tractors. You are better off buying a high quality tractor from a reputable dealer. Personally I'd take a high quality Japanese tractor over a new Chinese tractor any day. For info on say the attached link.

ISH,well you might be right and then you might be wrong,thats the thing about a used tractor. That was my choices,used yanmore from a company I never heard of before or a new chinese one from a company I had. Parts will never be a issue with the chinese one,dealer support will not be an issue either,and the company has been in bussiness for years and has their name on it.Used anything scares me a little cause you just never know,and like you said,reconditioned might mean anything,I mean was you there when it was"reconditioned". Now having said that,my neighbor has a yanmor,he has been running it rough for about three tears now,I don't think hes put all that many hrs.,but the hrs he has put on it have been rough ones,and as far as I know he has only had to replace water pump and a few other little things. So I guess he didn't get burned. Richard
