Test
Oct 27, 2020 | 21:19 1 So what do you think the almost 30 year old new JD 4760 tractor will bring? With 17 hours to go, it is at $ 257000 Ya, that’s 3 zeros. To rich for your blood, well how about a 1988 jd 4450. With 256 hours and 17 hours till it closes it is at 111000. Sasky you should of been buying and holding all those years. Danny would be smiling, hey Furrow. Reply With Quote

    Why didn’t he throw a loader on it and watch it go for $175k....

    Anyone know what they were worth new? Guessing $50k for the 4450 and maybe $90k for the 4760?

  • Oct 27, 2020 | 22:32 5 Got two 4760’s here and would love another but that’s crazy money. We rebuilt one completely a few years ago and the other is nearly due. 32,000+ hours on them and plenty of life yet😎

    Heck even cleaned one up for our wedding wheels 10 years ago. Pretty cool cruising down Main Street Stony Plain with it. My wife even has green paint on her dress from the bucket I touched up the day before😉

    P.S. I don’t have green underwear.............. all colours are welcome here as long as they do the job. Reply With Quote

    Yes, quite the "cult"ure.

    I mock John Deere and crow is a staple of my diet!

    I like pointing out when I'm wrong, which isn't very often. Time for a crow bedtime snack.

    I never get tired of it. Reply With Quote

    As for the Deere branding. Wrote the book. Hats off. As for certain features on that vintage when new, outdated when they rolled off the line.

    Oct 28, 2020 | 07:31 9 My guess is that the 4760 and 4450 will go to new homes in the US. Can't compete with Trump bucks. Reply With Quote
    SASKFARMER's Avatar Oct 28, 2020 | 07:42 10 It will go to the USA. New is insane these have zero hours and no emissions the Americans know that its a good deal.

    Its also a deere, try finding a case ford fendt etc still running today from that time. Reply With Quote

  • SASKFARMER's Avatar Oct 28, 2020 | 07:51 13 A brand new deere or whatever is priced at 589000 and what do you actually get that's different if you're just putting workers in the tractor. This price the farm in the USA gets a zero-emission large HP tractor its a deal. Wake up it's happening all over guys are not buying the new but purchasing older zero-hour machines and they are around or have very few hours.

    Watch machinery Pete lots do it.

    Shed down south needs to be huricaine proof so costs more than that tractor. Reply With Quote
    Oct 28, 2020 | 07:56 14 They may not see the field.

    Still kicking my own ass for not buying my buddy's 7410 that I told you guys about for the very reason your talking about.

    0 emission crap. Reply With Quote
    SASKFARMER's Avatar Oct 28, 2020 | 08:02 15 A few years ago an older farmer passed and his family couldn't sell his equipment, two tractors were just purchased about a year sooner so they packed it up and put in the shed for safekeeping. Well, 21 years later the two tractors are out and working every day. Very low hours. Case can do it too. Reply With Quote
    Oct 28, 2020 | 08:03 16 Cattle guys have a hell of a time with DEF tanks in the winter...heard of some breaking ...codes all the time etc....

    Why cant people understand less is more....just give me a MFWD without bells and whistles ...a good seat and let me do my chores....

    FFS every cattle guy's tractor should come with an factory installed engine heater rather than half the shit they put on the now.... Reply With Quote

    Oct 28, 2020 | 08:08 18 Interesting and odd at the same time. What does everyone think about a machine sitting like that for that long. Just thinking about the seals getting hard and dry. Assuming it was cold storage, temperature changes are hard on everything too. Would think it might be better to run them and take a little drive a couple times a year. Reply With Quote

    You could buy a Belarus ....

    Agree on too much useless stuff and DEF. neighbours still run 2 1150’s and pull 75 ft seed hawks . Atom jets , redone the cabs , new air ride seats ...... and guess what , they still go up and down the field at 5 mph , the same as a $750,000 new one but burn way less fuel
    Watch Welker Farms on YouTube , they run the ole Big Buds yet .
    What is also interesting is that the guys that belong to the climate change cult mostly don’t run tier 4 engines with DEF ..... do what I say , not as I do... Reply With Quote

    Oct 28, 2020 | 08:57 22 Is there a market for rebuilt used farm machinery?
    Cat has their certified factory rebuild program where you can buy an older machine completely rebuilt, and as far as I know, avoid the emissions.

    Would farmers buy such a thing if it existed, or have technology and expectations changed so fast that no one would have any use for such a thing?

    Combines, airseeders, sprayers might be tough, with metal fatigue and wear points everywhere, plus changes in technology. But tractors seems like a potential market.

    Could it be done and avoid the regulations and emissions on new machinery? Reply With Quote

    Good thing I don’t know any different. Gotta put new accumulators on them. Not the most convenient to take the kids with you though😉

    Buddy has a 2294 with 5 hrs on it sitting in a shed. Literally stole it at an estate auction. He’s been sitting on it not sure what to do with it.

    Pretty sure it’s not worth mid six figures though😉 Reply With Quote

    The sooner this idea becomes commonplace the better. I have run old machinery for years, with a few upgrades to newer stuff when it was affordable. Give me a rebuilt Steiger , Big Bud , Case IH, and you wouldn't be able to wipe my smile off my face ! Reply With Quote

    Deere , Case , Agco ... build machines for customers on a different playing field than most Canadian farms . Fendt is no different. Reply With Quote
