kubota L285 - value?

Georg Waldhof how much is a kubota L285 worth? I think this one is either '76 or '79. Also, whats the PTO horsepower of this tractor?

Any information will be helpful.

thanks

ric Tractor horsepower is about 28 pto is around 24.
Price is a function of many things, hours, care, accessories, 2wd/4wd and condition. Age will just be a discussion point as the old L series tractors were made from 1973 to 1985. Can you elaborate? ric

Georg Waldhof Thanks for the HP information - tractor is serial 10603 and mechanically very sound. 2WD needs a new inner tube on rear - tires are tolerable. Also needs a sending unit for the oil pressure light. Clock says 1750hrs, but i think its a bit slow. What else can i tell you?

ric You will need to fix the pressure switch to prove to someone you got good pressure it won't sell until you do. Put in new tube and make sure all four tires hold air. Using my rule of thumb of a 100 hours a year your tractor is less than average hours for the age, but not low. If this has ag tires its a L285F if it has turf tires its an L285T. With no attachments this is likely to be in the $2500 to $3500 range and it will take somebody special who knows what this is to buy. If you had a mower, fel it would help sell but not likely change the price. Are the tires in good shape, is it rusty? These will knock the price down. Maintenance history if you don't know what it is the price will go down. If the paint is faded no problem the paint fades on all tractors, if its not faded the price will hold up.
Just common sense. The L285F or T are great tractors especially for hauling or mowing, they are fast and easy to navigate around stuff in the yard. Ag tires don't mess up the yard much more than turf tires do and you don't get stuck in wet grass on Ag tires. Your biggest problem is everyone thinks they need a 4wd tractror, some do most don't. Tractor season is nearly here you need to adverstise now, it will take awhile, don't publish the price you need the phone to ring so you can tell your story. It only takes one to buy your tractor. Good luck, ric
