First, this site has been a great source of info and I thank the folks who have helped me in the past.
Second, I am still looking at compact tractors. Still confused and it gives me a knot in my stomach every time I price one. I just can't seem to part with the 8 to 12,000.00 asking price for USED euipment. Oh well. It is as bad as a truck. Funny how fads bring price changes, used to be a truck was the "bottom of the barrel" as far as vehicles went. Now people want to get their groceries in a four wheel drive, might snow, ya know!
Looking at two tractors right now. One is a MF 1230 with 724 hours on it. The other is a JD 955 with 987 hours on it. I need to get the Serial No. to figure the year on these. How do I figure what is an average hour use? With car miles it is about 12 to 15000 per year. How do I figure what an average of hours is per year on a compact tractor? Also,how do you figure the hour use for a lawn tractor? Dealers must do this all the time. I am looking at trading our JD lawn tractor (hate it!!) and I also want to go in with an idea of a fair trade. I am not sure our JD dealer is looking to keep our business after this last deal.
Any help is appreciated. Ignorance is NOT bliss.
