I found a Wheel Horse 753 for sale today that I really like. It is in fair condition (just about everything seems to be there) and it has a mower deck that is in okay shape. However, it does NOT run, but the motor turns over. He said that the transmission shifts good. If I get it, I plan to do a total restoration on it and use it as my main mowing tractor as we have a smaller yard and this would be perfect for it.

With that being said, I was wondering if you guys could give me a ball park idea of what it may be worth?

Thanks,
Taylor

You've been at this long enough to know that condition, area, availability, desire and competition all play a part in tractor prices.
Condition is everything when your looking for a quick flip. You don't want to have to completely rebuild it to resell it, it just wouldn't be profitable. BUT, if your looking for a fixer-uper and your mechanical ability allows you to do most/all the work, condition isn't always a huge factor.
Seeing as how your in my neck of the woods and knowing how plentiful these tractors are in this area, area & availability dictates a little lower pricing then let's say Texas and a lot lower than the UK
Desire is ALWAYS a driving factor in what one is willing to pay for a tractor & competition could drive up just what you wanted to spend to what you will spend.

That being said, a non running 753 in "decent" shape shouldn't bring more than $200 or so around here.

In my area they aren't as plentiful and if one pops up on CL that is even worth looking at, you'll usually see it start around $400. They just go up from there......jusjeepn is exactly right, all about area and the demand in that area.....lucky for you, the fact that its not running is a big plus for you. 90% of the time its spark or fuel & I have found and usually from people not properly storeing it the year before.....use that to your advantage to talk em down.......good luck!!

Thanks for the input guys! I appreciate your time! I think I have a pretty good idea of what I want to pay for it now.
