what to look for and how much to pay for this tractor?

was looking at the listing for the next city fleet auction and this tractor came up. does not list the model or hours but says that its a 1999. comes with a loader and looks like a ballast box. my questions are depending on if it is hydro or gear drive what to pay for it? looks if i had to guess a 40hp or so diesel engine. anything i should look for as well? thanks in advance!

Those are usualy hydro's with range selections A for heavy work, B for mid level tasks like mowing or bush hogging, and C for traveling or light tasks

Gear drive was also an option. Live PTO was standard. Fair price, Top of the scale pristine condition maybe 10k in this condition 5-8k

The hydraulic hoses make sure their in decent condition and not dry rotting as they very expensive to replace. But overall looks good.

I saw that on one of those auction sites...
Thats a JD 4600
Pretty sure its a Hydro...If not thats fine but the hydro is faster. Because you just push the pedal either forward or backwards...
I just picked up a JD 2320 from a local dealer for just over 12k with 30 HRs on it. Year 2012. Sooooo....... I say 4k would be my highest bid....

Go to the inspection day..
Check for leaks.
See if they will start it up.
Hydros run smoothly.

**I love my 2320 to death! Very fast and smooth. Only problem is mine can only handle a 4' Hog... this one could do a 6' hog...
