Here is a couple pictures of a garden tractor I am looking at and was wondering what it is worth with no attachemnts , not sure yet on the actual hours but he said it runs great and works great. Looks like a nice little garden tractor.

Don, those are nice tractors. I usually see them asking 1500 to 2500 on ebay and Craigslist. That one looks like it is at a dealer's place, so it may be above that price range if it was gone over and prepped there. I think that model came in 15 and 17 hp.

I don't know much about them, but I believe that Dave is right! I've seen a couple and they go for good money. That looks like it's in great shape to boot! Should prove to be a real work horse as well!

Average market value of an Iseki is $1500-3000 depending on condition, features, implementation, and location.

Thanks , I will go back next week and look at it better and possibly drive it . They were just closing and the guy said $3,500 and I asked him if the price was negotiable and he said they were selling it for someone. So hopefully they will give me his name and number and i can deal with the owner direct. Got to check on the hours and drive it too . I'd like to eliminate the dealer so we'll see next week what happens. For the right price it might be great for my JD4020 project .

Thanks for the advice , I think it is also only two cylinder and not sure about hydraulic couplers either . New day, New Year , so New Plan . No way they will adjust the price down to $1,500 or even $2,000.00 so going to not go back . Decided to go ahead now and use one of my 455JD's for the project. I bought them brand new and they are 11 years old and in perfect condition . Hardly used the 2 wheel steer tractor with 175 hours so I will have fun plowing with it this winter and then convert it to 4x4 articulating garden tractor this summer. Here is a picture like I have in mind . does anyone know the size of these tires ??

I don't know, but if you need a place to "store" it for the winter, it can stay in my garage!

I very nearly bought one last month - from two different sellers. I heard they are excellent tractors. One was $2400 with no implements. The other was a hydrostat with a nice blade and 3pt finish mower for $2200. I write this with a little pain, because I have some regret for not buying one.

They have Iseki diesel engines, and 3 speed ptos, live power, cat 0 3pt.

I compared prices nationwide and didn't see any for less than $2000 (at that moment) and they went up to $3500.
