I know how much folks hate this question. And I know location matters. But I know nothing about Wheel Horse values, only about Bolens tractors. So here goes.

A good friend of mine inherited a 1969 Wheel Horse Charger 10, and he wants to sell it. It includes a deck and a trailer. He says it runs well, and as you can see from the pics, it looks pretty good too. It has lights, new blades, new battery, new throttle cable, and new tubes in the rear tires.

So what do you think?

I have a friend in Illinois that may be interested, he is into the wheel horse tractors. I will ask him tomorrow and let you know, if he is interested in selling send me a pm.

Are you interested in it and if so what are you going to do with it,use it, buy to resell, restore it ? Or is he just looking for a price to ask for it ?

What ever a buyer is willing to pay for it.  Start high as you can always come down.

I am not interested in a Wheel Horse. If it was a Large Frame Bolens you would not see me asking; I would have it myself. But my buddy cannot use it on his postage stamp yard so he is interested in selling it.

If I were looking for another WH, I would say $200 -$300.

I may be "cheap" but I don't pay more than that for my Wheel Horse tractors....Except my 520H,,,It is a newer/bigger machine so it cost me more!

Again, someone wanting this particular machine would maybe pay more.

I would say $350 for 'wanting" buyer, but $250 for cheapy guy like me to buy it. They are nice and easy to work on, but not rare or anything special about them. Looks pretty clean.

I would start at 395 and settle for 300 to 350. Looks real nice. I paid 220 for my 857, [1967], and it wasn't nearly that nice looking.

What your seeing is the difference in geography. When I said 5-6 that is what they list for in CL for my area. If you go to IN, OH, or PA, the same machine is much more plentiful.

IMHO: that tractor in central PA would sell for $400-500 currently.

 

Deals are out there.  In 2003, I got my 1970 WH Charger 12 for $100 - ran good, recent rattle can paint job, and decent mower deck.  Over the years I added a mule to it to run newer decks after mine rotted out.  Sadly, the K301 threw a rod 2 weeks ago. I haven't looked inside yet.   :-(

My buddy Steve bought one for $125.
Needed a paint job, but the rest was there... Deck good, etc.
The trailer would add some, depends on condition... And if its a WH trailer or not.
