John Deere 4850 MFWD

I'm looking at a 4850 MFWD with 4650 original hours. It belonged to a ranch owned by a lady who passed away. So after she passed away, all the equipment was sold except for the 4850 and a few other things. The lady was the original owner of the tractor.
It has been sitting for over a year at a shop. They are supposed to fix a hydraulic leak under the front end, but haven't yet. And it doesn't look like they are going to anytime soon.
I believe they want $26,000 for the tractor after the hydraulic leak is fixed.
It has sat outside since it was new and I don't think it was ever shedded. They paint is pretty faded, but the tires are in good shape.
So how much is this tractor worth? Is $26,000 about right, or should I try and get it cheaper since it's been sitting for over a year?
PS. I haven't started or driven it yet because the batteries are dead. The only thing wrong with it is supposidly the hydraulic leak. I plan to take 2 batteries and try and get it started sometime this week.

Comparing it to the one we had in 04 it sounds like a pretty good offer you have there. Run it and feel how it shifts. If it runs good I would consider buying it with the oil leak and maybe negotiate another price deduction. But even for this price with the oil leak it sounds like a good value.

Re: John Deere 4850 MFWD

The 4850 got moved from one repair shop to another shop. At this second shop is where I found the 4960. The price for the 4850 is $26500, and no less. There is now another guy in line to buy the 4850 if I don't.
I took a pic of the 4850 since it was next to the 4960. As you can see, the paint is in poor shape.

The FWD on the 4850 started to make a chattering sound when it was being moved to the second shop, so there is more than likely something wrong with it also. If it's something major, the price will just rise with the repair cost.

I can't understand somebody paying big money for combines, tractors, planters, etc.... and can't afford a building for it. That type of machinery commanding that much money needs to have a shed.

I have seen tractors with comparable hours and look decent for not much more than this.

I know where there is a 4955 with 5200 hours for 36,500. It has a JD reman motor and looks really good.

Just like this one. A 4960 with 7200 hrs for 30K.

Decent tractors are out there. Sometimes they are just tough to find. But I guess everything boils down to how much you are wanting or able to spend. I understand where you are coming from.

That thing would look like new money if I got my hands on it.
