That is a cheap price around here. Assuming you're talking CAD that should be around $6500 USD, those rarely go under $10k here, mostly $15-20k in decent shape, best I've seen was $24k.
Why? What is so special about them. Seems like a LOT for that old and size of a tractor.

Because this is the corn belt and JD is the king and some think the sun set when they quit making the 4020. I personally don't care for them that much but do love to watch the on an auction, especially if they are clean, low hour late models with side controls and power shift.

Some in the green crowd believe its in the bible as well... "on the ninth day God said I need a tractor and made the 4020"...

mustard likes this.

Don't blame the baker when the butcher bakes the bread.

Any decent 4020 is worth $8500 if itís a powershift. Most older Belarus I see are parked in the trees

Well I have both a 4020 and a slightly smaller older Belarus 800. The Belarus hardly gets used except for occasional 3pt work and I could buy ten or more of the Belarus for what my late 4020 is worth and personally I'll stick with what I have, not hard to tell which I depend on lol.
I think its more of a generational thing as in a persons age that plays into how they hold their value, I suspect in 20 or whatever years when the likes of me are gone you will see them drop. But until then, if they do the work of a newer one for a fraction of the capital cost, why not? Shows just how advanced the hydraulics and more were on them, that they can still hold there own against a newer one today. Much as my two cylinders like my 830, the 20 series were the cool tractors of the day back then, and to some of us will always be just part of doing what we enjoy. I actually have several of that series and still use them daily.

Kind of reminds me of back when I moved rigs, my old '72 HD Kenworth was the oldest truck in North America with Mullen's name on the door...but specialized division paid me just as much per hour for it as they paid the guy I bought it from with his new one...they all did the same work. Now given Mullen knew I had rebuilt it from one end to the other and sure, they needed trucks and weren't about to turn away someone with experience. Did some of the other leasers dislike me, dam rights, my entire truck was worth less than six months payments on a new one. And again, it was a personal choice to drive it, same with the tractor.

Contracts are made to be broken, a handshake is the law of God.

4020’s are wort all of $8500 in Michigan, most you see are asking more than that unless there just about destined for the scrap yard.
