I have a Case 800 that has a few hours on a rebuilt engine. Tires are about 50% and it looks good. I've been trying to sell it in the Austin, TX area for $2400 with no success. Am I asking too much for it? Do you suspect the hard sell is because of the Case-O-Matic?
Thanks,

I don't know about Texas but in michigan you would be hard pressed to get that.....seems people don't appreciate a deal when they see one.... ran across a 400 case gas with the A251 engine a year ago ran great started right up , no smoke ,was a little rough from setting out but , he was only asking 1200 for it and I don't think he ever sold it...have seen them bring 900-1500 at local auctions in good usable condition, not mechanics specials, drive it home and use it specials ....I am guessing it is a gas tractor as the diesels sell a little easier...and a little higher in price. I bought my 730 CK for 1800 7 years ago and just recintly did a overhaul and I will probrbly own it till I die , cause the parts and labor were way more than the tractor is worth in the current market, I am guessing you are in the same boat....use it and enjoy they are great tractors for the money!!

You have me pegged right. I bought it for $1750 and then rebuilt the engine. I think you are right. If I sell it, it will probably be at a loss. I don't really want to keep it because I have 14 tractors. The 800 is one of them that I rarely ever use. I've got so many other things going on that I can't take care of them like I should. Some have got to go so that the rest can share what little available time that I have.

Nothing seems to be selling right now. I have a Case 800 that I have had on the market for 2 or 3 years now and only asking $1200 for it. Runs very good and starts in all weather so fast it makes you almost jump. With gas priced like it is and all I think no one is wanting to buy much because they can't afford to drive any place to get a good deal

I think I saw your ad (in Leander?), and I was very interested. The fact that it's a COM is a plus, not a minus, for me. The narrow front is a big minus, though. Apart from currently being broke and paying off debts, I just don't have much interest in a narrow front. I disagree with your assertion that it would make a great loader tractor. That's just too dangerous with a narrow front. It's a beautiful tractor, though.

I had a loader tractor with wide front. I sold it because the tires were always outside of the bucket swipe making it hard to a clean job. I bought one with a narrow front and I am now convinced. Loading is much easier if the front wheels are inside the width of the bucket - much, much better. On wide front tractors, if the bucket is wide enough, the steering and frame can't take the stress of the large bucket. As far as the additional safety with the wide front, it is minimal and only a concern with an inexperienced operator. A good operator can handle the narrow front easily and with more dexterity and speed. For me, a narrow front on a loader is the only way to go. I base my choice on experience with both. If the operator drives around with the bucket up in the air, he is doomed with either front end. If he keeps the bucket close to the ground until he is ready to dump, he is safe with either.

I live on a hillside, and mostly what I need a loader for is moving hay. With my 830 having 23.5" tires, it has a footprint almost 8 feet wide, and just mowing can still get scary. With the pivot on the front axle, though, having a wide front probably won't do a thing to stop it tipping over if a rear tire lifts. Your observations give me something to think about, to be sure.

I have hills as well. I just keep track of where I am and act accordingly. I have both wide front and narrow front tractors. I do most of my work with narrow front tractors because they are so maneuverable.

The myth has been born that a wide front will prevent tip overs. In fact, they do very little to help until after one of the rear wheels leaves the ground. It may be too late, then, because the help is too small. I believe in a very healthy fear of dangerous situations - they present themselves all too often in this business.
