This German made tractor was among Deere's finest series ever created! This tractor has 4450 hours and runs and works perfectly with no leaks.
It is a 1981 by serial number. I loaned it to a neighbor who had a skid steer go down for 3 weeks and he says other than 1 slightly loose tie rod end, he could not fault the tractor.
He installed a new seat before returning it! Tractor is equipped with a later model, near new 542 Deere quick tach self leveling loader with a quick attach heavy duty bucket. The loader is plumbed properly to the tractor and is FAST! NO, I will not sell the loader off the tractor.
There are 2 sets of rear remotes. Rear tires almost new, fronts tires are one fair and one very good. Tractor has had a recent service as I have been using it for feeding hay and spreading some stone. It runs and works well and is completely reliable!
There is some rust in the floorboards and rear fenders (see pics). Bank wire transfers, cash, or checks once they clear. If you consider the value of the loader, the tractor is priced at less than parts and it's a GOOD tractor that will serve you well.
