While browsing craigslist last night i found this...

https://detroit.crai...6020296313.html.

Very, very little info, but im really liking it...how do yall think its priced based on the picture assuming it runs and cuts well? Are these old cases pretty decent machines?

Good machine, looks rough for that money but they do tend to bring good $$ if you go look at it pay close attention. To the hydro pump and rear diff, fairly weak compared to other tractors. Otherwise I like it!!!

I think it looks like a fun little machine.  Find out what they mean by "runs" (smokes, has loud knock, dies) Offer them $100 and see what happens.

I think it is too expensive at that price. Around here in Michigan you can find a good simplicity of John Deere for that money with many implements, not just one. But, if you want it, i say go for it.

Looks good to me. I would buy it. I looked at a JD 140 H3 once. It was 500.00. I looked at the ad and the pictures of it for over a month. I have owned it for about five years now.

I would get it before it gone.

that's my thought if engine has no knocks. I'd try $300 but would have $400 in my pocket so as not to leave empty handed.

   I had a case 155 and they are good machines, they are also fairly uncommon. I wont say rare just uncommon, I would say $400 is a fair price if it is all he states.  Look close and see if there is a hydro lift, if there then go for it no brainer!!!
