I would give $500 for it for the extra parts if it was closer!!
I paid $3200 ( I would not sell it for what I paid for it) a year ago last September for one with 571(I think) hrs a year ago last September with Rear Blade & 3 point scoop and 5 ft brushcutter & Chains
1 rear tire was 1 yr old and the other needing replaced. I replaced the tire and tube for about $300 ( that included an $80 service call for the install) last spring about this time. I really like the Tractor and it has been a lifesaver on my acreage.And I have put 200 hrs on it since I got it. I have also replaced the water pump(about $100 and the Ignition switch which I think was about $80.
I got this one at that price because the previous owners wife asked him if he wanted a new Harley. He said he was not really a Harley guy but might buy a new tractor. He bought a New 38 Hp John Deere and did not need two tractors.
So long as the exhaust has been covered so water has not been running down on the valves it should be ok and not stuck.
As a comparison I know where there is a 1710 sitting with a rebuilt engine and has been sitting in the salvage yard for 2 yrs(may be longer, that's just how long I have been watching it) with both rear tires flat and the rims rotted off(Calcium Chloride) and they are asking $3500. That salvage yard hauls tractors in from all over the country.
