What is an older JD spreader worth? Not sure the model but single axle, ground driven, tongue with jack, appears complete, and not beat up. Sheet metal in box exceptional good. Was used to spread other materials than manure since factory new. Was stored inside for years. Tire's might need switched around, but an extra tire or 2 suppose to come with it if needed.

If it's as nice as you say, it could bring stupid high money at an auction with the right 2 bidders.

Seems like you can't find a spreader under 250 bushels for under $2-3000 anymore. Even ground drive.

Just guessing from your description, it might be a model H ? (grabbed a photo from another post) Location matters. I would maybe contact an auctioneer in your area, describe it to him/her, see what they say. Mike

central U.S. is where I'm at. It's located close by. Looks real simular to the one in the photo. maybe a touch longer box, but been awhile since I looked at it, but definately that style. Has the hand controls in front of the box. Maybe the one in the photo is suppose to have those but don't.

The style in the photo only was made in one length and that is an H spreader of late 40's to early 50's and yes it is sopposed to have levers. That is about a 75 bu. spreader. It was followed by the L in same size and the R in a 95 bu. size. The N is larger, about 115 bu. and is PTO drive. And these did not have the rounded front end.

Thanks Don-Wi for your pricing but your for a little newer and bigger than what I'm looking at. Thanks to others for responding on model. I'm pretty confident its the one in the picture but not as particular of exact model as an estimated worth.

No, around here even the small ground drive ones can go stupid high. Every body around here with 1 horse and an 8n needs a spreader, even if they don't have a place to haul it. In good shape, I'd expect that spreader to go around $1000, maybe even more.

Here's a few links to show you what I mean...

thx don. I thought your original post was only refering to 250 or more bushels which is about 2 times as big as I'm looking at. Your last post gives me alot better idea.

I agree with your appraisal. A number of years ago
there was a nice looking Deere H spreader at a
local auction that I was kind of interested in.
Only when the bidding exceeded $1000 did it slow
down enough to allow the auctioneer to keep up (and
he's a very good auctioneer!). I never even had a
chance to bid - the few hundred bucks I had in my
head was obviously way low.

4 wheel spreader in first picture is a New Idea 10 or 10A. I have one setting here now to rebuild for an Amish friend.

Second picture is McCormick No. 200

Third picture is of later style 95 Bu. John Deere Model R due to single lever operation.

Fourth picture Is a New Idea No. 12 or 12A also about 95 Bu. The difference in with the A or without the A is the type of bearings, roller is earlier type and brass sleeve is later type.

And the Amish are pulling the 2 wheel tractor spreaders behind fore carts as they cannot find the 4 wheel spreaders anymore. I need to get the 6 of the 4 wheeler ones I have setting here rebuilt, just not enough time.

Why tires are mounted the way they are::

"DRIVING" tires are mounted is the same fashion as the rear tractor tires are.

"DRIVEN" tires are mounted the opposite direction.

Reason being---the tread will be self-cleaning.

2 years ago I gave $25 for this "planter box" and then put $150 into it and have used it since for hauling pig manure. Not a lot, but 5 or 6 loads a year.
I think what you're looking at would be a bit high around here, but as stated anyone with a horse needs one and they seem to go for between $500 and $1200 depending on condition and size.
