I see no way that anyone will pay him $4,346 for this tractor because he did a crappy job repainting it!

I easily have over $2k in my 120 when it comes to the cost of the tractor, tires, paint, and supplies.  Crappy work is optional.

Yeah he was lazy when he did it and just painted part of it black and got overspray on the hood decal.

370+ to adjust the brakes!! Looks like the dealer seen him coming. It shows a couple of things. 1. The amount of $ required to fix up a worn out GT can add up to a crazy amount, 2. You can't expect to get all that cash back on a resale. 3. If you want top dollar for a tractor the paint in particular has to be of a very high standard. 4. DIY can yield a lot of savings.

Nice looking 140 from about 25' away but not $4000+ nice.  That being said I only wish either one of mine looked close to that good.

I can't believe someone would think they can ask anything like that kind of price for a tractor that looks like that.

Looks brush painted.  All that work and it is still worth what he paid for it.

Yeah, both the black and green look to be brushed on... THICK too.

I'm not sure how bad yours looks but I would rather keep mine in rough original shape than for it to have a hacked up facelift!

I think you are over estimating on the 24'.  I'm thinking more in the order of 25 yards, and in a thick fog before it looks 'good'.

 

Well, if ANY Deere can be said to actually look good.

Obviously the 559 bucks he spent on wire harness repair was to hook the hour meter back up!!!!!! LMAO
