Well i am sure i will be getting an ear full from the jd boys,back in april as i said i was going to collect only wheel horses from now on and was going to part with my deeres, since then i have only been able to sell the h3, i have stupid offers $50 to $100 for them, one guy kindly offered to pick them up at no charge to me, these are running tractors, a 112 with deck, 210 with blower, 212 with deck and a 214, i will say i am keeping my jd 100 rf i like its size for my garden, anyhow i am reluctanly going to strip them down, keep the kohlers for my wheel horses as they are worth way more than i have been offered and try to sell some parts then scrap the rest, john deeres are everywhere here in southern ont, and extremly easy to find, but thats what i here about horses in some parts of the states,location location location and being able to but a brand new 24hp hydro from home depot for just over a thou does not help

I have 3-100 and 3-200 series John Deere's. I do know they are worth more to me than maybe others. I learned pretty fast that you wont make any money on these things. But that's not why I do it. I just enjoy it. I have a lot of colors in my shed and always wanting just one more!

Say 12 Hail Masseys, 3 our Fords and perform three acts of transmission and you will be absolved.

I understand completely. I restored a JD214, new engine, paint, tires, seat, decals,everything. I had a super nice restored deck and a brand new deck and blade still strapped to a pallet with the dealer tags on it. It was for sale for over a year on craigslist and ebay before I took 600.00 for all of it, I had to I was broke. I tried to sell it in pieces and as a set, nobody wants a Deere around here. I think the fact that they made MILLIONS of them really hurts the price, as well as that most 100 and 200 series Deeres weren't the tractor a Wheel Horse was or even a Sears for that matter, They are severly overpriced for what you get in my opinion, they just have a nice look. Good luck and I'll stand by ya.

     Sack cloth and ashes, Farmer John, but I hear you---- seems things are only worth something if you're buying, not selling. The guy who offered to haul them away for you?  I'd be tempted to smack him along side of the cabbage  lol.      Wish we lived closer, the 210 would be a nice addition here.

yes i know i should , but its hard when its going against your nature, i had a guy wanting my h3 that i sold but when i heard they were goung to use it as a donor tractor i held firm on my price ( which i knew was too much) but finally she found a good home where she is getting a refit and new shoes, and some new attachments to play with, i sold her for considerably less than i expected, but i guess im an old softy at heart

Good Luck, everybody thinks that they are a picker and you should sell them gold at manure prices.
