    Just checking to see if the going rate for a 8n tractor? I friend has one for $2700 that includes the disk, back blade, 2 row plow, 2 row planter, and brush hog. The disk and brush hog are probably in the best condition of the implements. Anyway, haven't purchased a tractor before and didn't know the going rate. This appears to be a good deal from what I see on ebay. .. Oh.. the tractor has been coverted to 12 volt..

    what do you think? whould you move on it?

    An 8N in fair condition goes from $1500 to $2500. Impliments are options added to that price. You had better jump on it fast. Make sure the heads are tight and it doesn't leak or burn oil. If he is a true friend he should be on the up and up with you on the status on the engine. I hope you're close to me so I can borrow it.

    buying a tractor is just like buying a car theres alot to look for
    and it should pay to buy from some one you know.
    these were prime tractors in there day. and still really good hobby tractors.
    i would say with all those implements if the tractor is in good shape and it has not or minor mechanical problems thats a good deal. for most guys doing food plots only its a great little tractor

    i would buy that, but we just bought one about 6 months ago and the back left wheel was rusted and we didnt catch it and now it rusted through the tire and into the inner tire. now we have to get a new wheel. but we paid 2200 for ours and came with brush hog and blade. so i would get on that one fast

    Make sure you know what your are getting into, those tractors don't much "umph" for plowing and discing. Usually see em at auctions going for $1800-2100 in working condition.
