I posted a wanted ad for a 140-h3.  I had a guy text me who is 15 minutes away from home he says he has one.  He said it hasn't been run in 12 years and has a mower deck.  I don't know the condition or anything else.  I am going tomorrow to look at in and make a offer maybe.   I need to know depending on condition and all that what would be a good price. .  He also said he might need to do some research on what they go for, but I already told him I am not looking to spend a lot.  He said come look and make a offer. 

Thanks for all the help any one can give me.

I can't really say myself but the ones I have looked at didn't go cheap.  I want one too!   If you don't make a deal I would love a shot at it.  Good luck.  And get us some pics.  :thumbs:

On Craigslist around here, not running, without any " extra" attachments, but complete they are going for $250-$500. If it runs and has a tiller, blade and freshly waxed paint people want over a couple thousand...... You would think it came with a guarantee to to find and till up chunks of gold.......

You probably are having a hard time sleeping as you have that H3 on your mind. I hope you can get it! Pleasant dreams. This one has kept me up a few nights! GEDC0237.JPG

I agree with the $250-$500 range for an H3 with a deck, non-runner. Up to $500 if it's complete and not all banged up. $250 if it's rough but all there. Less if parts are missing. Some might think I'm nuts for $500 for a non-runner, but follow an Ebay auction for a H3 hydraulic set-up once, then we'll talk crazy.

Sorry I'm late on this. If the hood and headlight bezel are in good shape and both head lights are there just those items are worth 250.00 to 300.00 alone. Normally if the engine isn't stuck, you can make it run with little work. Make sure it has the correct engine in it, vintage and type. Steering wheel and cap are always good to look at. Is the Hydraulic lift handles frozen? Check the Hydro speed handle frozen up or the release knob under the seat. If the ID tag is missing, look to see what kind of brakes it has, Drum of Disc. That will give you a the above, (1971 and later) of below 30,000, (1969-70) serial range. Does it have turning brake pedals, 1968 models didn't, serial 10,000 and lower. Does it have rear Hydraulic outlets in the fender pan?

 

Hope this helps a little. Good Luck !!

This is my 140 h-3. Paid $250 for it motor turned over but wouldn't run. Took little to get running. So I would stay like others said $250-$500 max. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1370219660.537695.jpg
