the rear hydraulic is rare.  tiller, deck, blade, is it a running tractor?  double your max and add 4 or 5 hundred to it.  800 would be a steal.

A lot depends on condition when you get up close for an inspection. That's a very nice combination of tractor and attachments and won't come up often. I'd bargain but also be realistic about what it's worth to you and what you can afford. It will likely be a long time before you see another combo like that.

What year/serial number is it?  Early '68's with the side tag are of interest to collectors.  The later machines are great workers.  

 

Front Blade = $250 for 2-way, $400 for 4-way

Rear blade/3 point = $300 - 500 easily as this is some unusual parts

Tiller = $300-500

PTO = $150-200 (note: early 140 takes a different PTO than the late 140/120/early 300 series which is different than the late 300 series)

Tractor = $500-1000 for a Good running H3 is realisitic

Deck = $150-250 depending on condition/size/model (likely a model 41= 38" cut or model 48=46" cut, both have 3 blades)

 

Ultimately you choose what you can pay but know this is one of Deere's most reliable and desirable tractors that have stood the test of time.  The big difference between the early 140 and the late 140 are here:

For 1969, the 140 received a 15% upgrade in power with a move to the 14 horsepower Kohler cast iron K321AS. Also new for the '69 model was individual rear brakes. These allowed sharper turns, as well as the ability to feather a wheel if it was spinning. A change a little more difficult to detect was a switch to a true three spool valve on the H3 models.

 

At Serial number 30001, for the 1971 model year a change was made in the type of hydrostatic unit used. This change incorporated a pinion and ring gear design rather than the bull gears used on previous models. The rear axle diameter was also increased. Rear brakes were changed for the disc type used up to this time to a more reliable drum brake system. Individual rear wheel brakes were retained on the H3 models.

As the owner of a 120 I can tell you they are solid, dependable machines and I do not regret my choice to invest my time and money in the machine.

I'm not sure if one of the previous post was clear, but 1968 or first year? John Deere 140s used a Kohler k301 12hp, just like the JD110 the first year engine was a 7hp, next year was a 8hp, then a few years later they bumped it up to a 10hp using both Kohlers and Tecumseh engines. Many tractor companies use the engine hp in the model number and very often pre 1970s Deere used a smaller engine than the number designation in the model, kind of deceiving. I believe in 1969 Deere produced a 120 similar to the 140 with less features, just not sure how long thy built the 120

Okie,

 

The '68 140's all had 12hp Kohlers, and even some early '69 140's. Mid 1969, John Deere changed over to using the 14hp Kohlers in the 140's, and this motor was used all the way through to the 1974 models. As for the 120's, John Deere made these models in 1970 and 1971 only, and these models all had the 12hp Kohlers.

 

"Serial Number Break Down"

 

140's:

1968 = (            - 10,000) 12hp Kohlers

1969 = (10,000 - 22,400) 12hp Kohlers (early) 14hp Kohlers (later)

1970 = (22,401 - 30,000) 14hp Kohlers

1971 = (30,001 - 38,000) 14hp Kohlers

1972 = (38,001 - 46,500) 14hp Kohlers

1973 = (46,501 - 56,500) 14hp Kohlers

1974 = (56,501 -            ) 14hp Kohlers

 

120's:

1970 = (            -   7,500) 12hp Kohlers

1971 = (  7,501 -            ) 12hp Kohlers

T0571 = Green Painted Tractors

T0572 = White Painted Tractors

I need a quote theres a john deere 140 h3 with rototiller rear hydralic rrear blade and deck what would it be worth in decent shape?? o and hes a single owner and still has all manuals and sales recipt?? offered 500 but will see what he comes back with ?? i was thinking max of 800 but what can yall tell me about them other than the given?

 

As stated early, if the motor runs good, and the overall tractor and attachments are in decent shape, I think a better price range or offer would be more around $1,200.00. In most areas, just the tractor and mower are selling for your maximum of $800.00. The rear hydraulics and rear blade can easy be worth an additional $500 - $600.00. If the seller knows anything about the value and demand of this series tractor, he'll ask you to offer more. If he doesn't, then Congrats, because you just stole the package. Worst case for you right now, is he will shop around and look into the value for the entire setup, and possibly not give you a second opportunity to buy it, as he may feel that you are not serious enough to buy it, especially with your first offer. He may even feel offended.

 

Good luck and I wish you the best!

1971 = (  7,501 -            ) 12hp Kohlers

T0572 = White Painted Tractors

Thanks for posting the numbers. I really like the JD140, for its features and looks, that and the fact that it was a pretty advanced machine for its day, and while they made more of them than any tractors I collect, it will be included in my collection one day

No offense, as I tell people all the time, "it's worth what you can get someone to pay you for it". But if it's a pre 30K serial, JUST the rear PTO ouput/shaft is worth half of your offer! Good luck, they sure are awesome machines.
