I have been offered a 1968 raider, 10 hp, with mower deck, runs with boost, requires selinoid for starting, and will require a new battery, tin work is good and paint is ok, there seens to be a following for these raider tractors, are they worth more or just better liked? any idea what its worth? any commom problems with this tractor thanks for your time and opinion, farmer john

I paid $300 for mine.It was a raider 12. it has a 12 horse kohler.It came with a front mounted sprayer and mower deck.I believe the 10 has the tec hh100 in them.I would think they go for anywhere from $150 on up depending on condition.

I would give $350... a JD lover would give a lot less. It would be worth more if it was running perfect.

The Raider 10's just are not a rare item. Plus some think the HH100 Techy is not the most desirable powerplant. What it is worth has always been a controversial topic and probably always will be. A $900 tractor? In my neck of the woods, that would have to be NOS. A $350 tractor? There are some out there, but unless it's extremely nice, that would be to much around here. A decent 1968 Raider around here would go for around $200. I see your a little north of me so your local pricing may be totally different. What it boils down to is how much it's worth to YOU and how bad YOU want it. I have 2 Raider 10's. The only reason I have one is because it was given to me, in running usable condition I might add. The other has been repainted, but looks nice. It has had the tranny swapped to a 3 speed but still is functional. It does need a new carb but does run. Bought it for $75. If I were to sell either one (which I'm not right now), I wouldn't expect to get more than $150 each, not because of condition, just because there is no market for that tractor in my area.

Just my two cents....

As I have mentioned before, GT's in the Minneapolis area appear to run higher. I think $300 for your mower was a good buy. I have a 1969 JD 112 with the HH100 motor.
