I have found a guy wanting to sell an h3 that doesn't run. Something broke in the motor is all he knows. It's in restorable condition and comes with a plow, cultivator, disc, front hydraulic blade, 3 point and deck. The implements are in great condition and stored inside most of their life. I don't even know where to start on a value for this thing so can yall help a fellow out? Thanks.

Welcome to GTTalk. A lot will depend on where you are. Give us some location information and someone local to you will be able to help. Sounds like a really nice package deal. I can't help because I've never seen a 140 up here.

I paid 500.00 for a running 140 h3, with a deck only. I am in the same area JDBrian is, so your location will be a little different than here. I would say if it was here I would pay 500.00 to 800.00. Depending on condition and because of the attachments and knowing a little about garden tractors and being in the hobby. If I was not in the hobby or did not know any thing about garden tractors, I would say less money. Depends what you want. Just my opinion. Noel

This guy is asking $550 for the package. I'm just worried the motor is going to make it not worth it. I'm expecting worst case scenario, a broken rod and busted block. That's way more too fix than it would ever be worth.

It's hard to say if the plow are attachments are cat 0 your looking at a $250 .00 plow $100.00 cultivator $250.00 Disc if the front blade is power angle and in good cond that's $350.00 and the 3 point is 300.00 -$500 .00 and you have not bought the tractor yet.

So basically I would be buying the implements for $550 and getting the broke tractor as a bonus?

As Brian mentioned - geographic regions have a huge impact on the prices of Deere tractors.  Where are you?

$550.00? I'd be buying the package! Sell off the attachments that you don't want, and use that money to help repair the motor. Motor rebuild will more than likely cost you between $300.00-$450.00, depending on block condition and your relationship with your area mechanic.

 

If you get the package and decide that the tractor is more than you want to deal with, I personally think that you can sell off everything individually, and still be able to make some money on the return. In our area, the tractor and mower deck alone could be resold for $350.00 no matter what the motor is like.

Thanks guys. My problem is that it's such a nice package I would hate to break it up and sell it like that. I just rebuilt the 301 in my 212. I just have a fear of finding a broken rod, bad crank or bad block in this one. My 212 was at least running when I bought it.

Swipe the 301 from the 212 and drop it in the 140.  Sell the parts of the 212   Problem solved.

I seriously thought about that. I decided today I would call the guy when I got off work and if he still had it I would buy it. I called and he had a guy there looking at it but said he didn't seem too interested and would call me when he left. He called about an hour later and said the guy bought it. I'm kinda glad cause I really didn't want another project so soon after the 212 plus I'm starting a smoker project. Thanks for the help guys.
