case 1370 tractor in Vermont

1976 Case tractor for sale. Its a model 1370, about 150hp, runs and goes awesome, 3-point hitch, 1000rpm pto, dual rear wheels two rear remotes. I was going to buy a batwing mower for it but can't seem to find a good used one and can't justify the 15 k for a new one. This would make a good large area mowing tractor for you guys who mow roadsides or vacant lots with a wing style mower. Price is $8,000, might consider trades???

1. IT wasn't tooken care of. 2. Look at the engine oil leaks all over. 3. Looks like it's got over 5000 hours on it.

wasn't taken care of??? Engine doesn't leak a drop. You are probably seeing some spilt diesel after it ran out of fuel had to reprime, hence the wetness. As far as 5000 hours, not sure had a new meter a while back but I would bet for sure it has that on it. Very rare to see an older tractor with less. I've got a two year old z with over 1000, not a big deal. For someone who has just seen one picture of the tractor you sure seem to make a quick judjment. I'm sure its not perfect, after all it is 30 years old. If you want to make a judgement come out and run it, otherwise, why run down my tractor without knowing a thing about it?

Im not shooting it down I'm just trying ot help other people out. And 5,000 hours is a big deal. More than likely it will need an overhaul at 6,000. Our case agriking only lasted till 5500. And these can cost up to 7,000. So there is a fuel leak? We have had 5 or 6 tractors overhauled on our farm we farm over 3500 acres. Ive seen our 4440s 4640s, and 2 4960s be overhauled at 6,000 hours because of blown rods. Eventhough we do not use them anymore we moved up to 8430s and 9420s I still can see this thing was not taken care of.

You are certanly entitled to your opinion but I still wish you wouldn't make generalizations about a tractor you've only seen one picture of and have never seen in person or heard run. as far as hours they are unknown but its an old tractor, I'm sure its got a few. And no, does not leak fuel, as I said, I ran it out a while back and had to open up a line to bleed it. One more thing about hours, I've seen rigs with 10 to 20 thousand hours still going strong, all in how its taken care of and how it runs and operates. In fact, I had a dozer (550g deere) with over 10,000 hours and if you didn't look at the meter you would have never known. Anyhow, if you don't like the tractor, very simple, no one is making you buy it. I'm still curious how you can "see" that this was not taken care of by one picture, I know the paint isn't shiny but I'm pretty sure that won't make it run any better.

On the ranch
JD 4020 with 8200 on the meter. Engine rebuilt at 7200 hours
JD 3020 with 5000 on the meter.

No reason a tractor wont last 15,000 to 20,000 hours. Okay regular service helps and a engine rebuild and some transmission work once in a while. That seems to be a fair price IMO. Just not in the market for one right now. Granted I have a pension IH and John Deere.
