Tips for Selling a Tractor

  • Make Integral Repairs – The less work a potential buyer needs to do to get the tractor up and running, the more inquiries a seller will receive. Older tractors in great condition can often command higher prices as well.
  • Clean It – Those in the market for a used tractor understand they’re workhorses, and after years, if not decades, of hard use will show considerable wear. At the same time, buyers want to know the money they invest in the tractor will hold up for years to come. Scrubbing off dirt, replacing worn stickers, and applying paint touch-ups can improve the value in buyers’ eyes.
  • Take Clear Pictures – Pictures allow the seller to communicate the condition and presentation of the tractor in a way that words cannot. Take a picture of the tractor from every angle. Include close-ups of areas that are known to wear out often, as well as the gauges. Photograph serial numbers and any other information that identifies the make and model of the tractor.
  • Utilize Online Advertisements. Online advertisements are an easy way of automating a large portion of the selling process. The majority of work involves entering the specs of the tractor, writing a paragraph on anything buyers should know, uploading the pictures, and paying for the listing (unless a free platform is used). A few popular selling platforms include:
  • Be Realistic on Pricing. Prior to posting the ad, browse various listing websites to get a sense of the standard selling point for tractors of a similar make, model, and age.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do tractors have titles?

Some do, but it’s not as common as motor vehicles. If the tractor didn’t come with one, the next best means of proving ownership is holding onto the receipt (if purchased new) or the bill of sale.

Additionally, the owner should have their serial number documented, which is unique to each tractor.

How do I value a tractor?

Search the internet for makes and models that fit the tractor being sold and use the average sale price as a reference. Online pricing tools can provide rough estimates but are rarely reliable due to the pricing variables unique to a specific tractor.

How can I tell the year of a tractor?

If the seller owns (or inherited) an older tractor that doesn’t have any documentation, one can look at its serial number to determine the year it was manufactured. The serial number can be found in a number of places depending on the tractor’s make.

Start by looking at the engine block and frame. Once the serial number has been obtained, type in the name of the brand, followed by the text “serial number lookup” into a search engine.
