Hi welcome to the group, you need to supply more information on the tractor, and attachments. It sounds high to me, have you researched the Kohler K361 18hp engine, how many hrs on the engine? Good luck

    To much money !!  Nice machine but that is to much $$.  I would say that is almost 2x what it should be.  Good luck

I agree its too much money, I figure the tractor is $1100.00, moldboard plow $175.00 rear blade $150.00 front plow blade $200.00 deck should be included with the tractor but to be generous $100.00 add it up and $1725 would be max. As I posted have you researched the 18 HP OHV Kohler? Parts for that engine are hard to find ( the cylinder head can be a serious problem and there are no new parts)

I agree seams too much!  About $1500 is tops in my book, WITH all the attachments  I mean. I'm not so sure on that rear-blade?? Seems odd hook up for this year tractor, just pulls, not for 3pt??  As noted, the 18's are know to have OH Valve problems, but some are long lasting, never can tell. Ask owner if he ever did head work. One thing noted that IS odd is the seat has an actual cover and pad on it. I knew some had that, but this one looks new or redone. Most are just a tin pan or the better upholstered high back seats. No decals, so figure this one has been reworked some?  Serial numbers are on decals on dash or front grill and may have been removed when painted?  Being that engine, should make it Late 70's or early 80's years. The snow blade is the best attachment in the bunch I think. They push snow real good.

i bought it.  got him to come down in price a little.  he took very good care of it and maintained it very meticulous.  he steamed cleaned it twice a year and it has always been in a heated shed.  has extra engine parts and all service records included.  i dont mind paying a little extra for something that has a good maintenance record.  wonder if anyone knows of a front end loader i could get for it?


  • olcowhand and Alc have said thanks
